Unfortunately the Hillman Trophy has become another casualty of the ongoing Corona Virus disruption. It was announced today that the competition has been abandoned for 2020. The full transcript is as follows:-
It is with great disappointment I am sending this email to advise you that following the Government announcement yesterday, we will be cancelling the Hillman Trophy competition for 2020 and consequently the Hillman Plate.
We have received the news from several Clubs that they have already taken the decision to close their clubhouses and provide reduced sessions. It would therefore be unfair to expect them to host visiting Hillman Teams.
We will of course provide refunds for the entry fees paid or a credit for the 2021 competition – we will be in touch with Club Managers regarding this.
I wish you all the very best in these difficult times and look forward to better golfing days ahead.
