Hayling Trophy 2022/2023

Hampshire Ladies Golf (HLG) and Hayling GC have reached an agreement for HLG to be taking over the running of the Hayling Trophy from the 2022 / 2023 competition.

The start date will be brought forward to the 1st September 2022 (has previously been 1st October) with the Final played on the 31st May 2023 at Hayling GC..

By way of background, Hayling Ladies Golf Club set up the competition in 2004 and based the format on the Stoneham Cup, but with a team of 5 singles matches aimed at higher handicap golfers. Over the years, more and more Hampshire Clubs approached Hayling to be included in the Hayling Trophy, but due to administrative constraints, the maximum number of Clubs that could be included was capped at 20. Hayling Ladies Golf Club were delighted to hand over the future organisation of the Hayling Trophy to HLG so that any Hampshire Club wishing to take part can now enter. HLG is delighted to be taking over a very well-respected competition that will provide competitive match-play golf for ladies with a Handicap Index of 24.1 and above (maximum HI 36.0).

The HLG Board have decided to make a few small changes to the existing format, and using the tried and tested system for Stoneham Cup, will administer the Hayling Trophy in exactly the same way. The number of groups will depend on the number of clubs entering the competition, but will be either 4 or 8 with the winners of each group producing semi-finalists or quarter-finalists respectively. Final’s day will, however, be just the 2 finalists as opposed to Stoneham Cup which also includes the semi-finals in the morning.

The entry form is now available along with rules and further details, which can be found here

A draw will take place as soon as possible after the Closing Date. Match results will be
submitted on-line and the Draw Sheet updated as the results come in so that everyone can
follow the progress of their Club!

HLG is excited to be continuing the fantastic work that Hayling GC have done in establishing
this competition, but with the opportunity to extend it to all clubs within Hampshire. We
are looking forward to receiving your entries for the 2022/23 Hayling Trophy.
