The Lee Westwood Trophy
The Rotherham Golf Club Open Strokeplay Championship
In the past this prestigeous competition has attracted overseas players from China, South Africa, Australia, Holland, as well as numerous English international players.
Staged since 2005, the competition always draws a high-quality field and invariably features some spectacular golf. That first year saw the then course record of 65 beaten. It had been held jointly for 10 years by Lee Westwood himself and Ian Garbutt but it was broken by Simon Coumbe of Pontefract & District Golf Club with a magnificent 62 in the second round.
Winners include David Horsey in 2006 (European Tour Player and BMW International Open Champion) and arguably the greatest amateur golfer England has ever produced, Gary Wolstenholme in 2008.
