The BIGGA National Championship
BIGGA’s golfing Major returns for 2021 at the historic championship setting of Royal Mid‑Surrey Golf Club.
Following a year’s hiatus caused by the COVID‑19 health crisis, The BIGGA National Championship will return in its usual two‑day in‑person format, with members invited to enter now and be in with a chance of getting your hands on the BIGGA National Challenge Cup.
Located on the border of both Middlesex and Surrey, Royal Mid‑Surrey was bestowed with royal status in 1926 when the then Prince of Wales was captain. BIGGA members will compete for the championship across the J H Taylor course, which was laid out by and named after the five‑times Open champion. In the early days, the J H Taylor course was the scene of several tournaments beginning with the News of the World Matchplay championship in 1904. The club has also hosted the Amateur Championship of England in 1946 and the PGA Championship in 1961 and 1968. It reopened in 2014 with 18 USGA‑specification greens, the culmination of a seven‑year project.
Utilising an event platform hosted by GolfGenius, BIGGA members can sign up to the event online and track important information such as tee times and a live leaderboard in real time. BIGGA members who aren’t able to attend the event will also be able to join in a virtual version, although to be in with a chance of winning the top prizes you’ll need to be there in person!
There are no handicap limitations in place, meaning BIGGA members of any golfing standard can participate, and with entry costing just £97.50 including two rounds on Royal Mid‑Surrey J H Taylor course, lunch on both days and an evening meal, the event is an incredible value‑for‑money opportunity to sample one of the finest courses in the South East.
Among the prizes up for grabs is an exclusive BIGGA National Championship-branded PING Travers trolley bag worth £165.
