The Boys Amateur Championship is a golf tournament which is held annually in the United Kingdom. The competition is organised and run by The R&A[1]


The Boys Amateur Championship was first played at Royal Ascot in 1921.[1] In 1921 the age limit for the competition was 16 but this was raised to 17 in 1922 and to 18 in 1923, which is the age limit that has been retained since.

The venue for the competition has been played at many golf courses throughout the United Kingdom and has frequented several golf courses on more than one occasion. Notably the first two completion were both played at Royal Ascot [1]


The current format for the Boys Amateur Championship is of an initial stroke play qualifier followed by a series of knock out match play matches cumulating in a 36-hole final.

Current format

The currently used format for the Boys Amateur Championship is the format used in 2010 and compromises of an initial stage of stroke play between all 252 competitors each of whom plays two rounds of 18 holes, one to be played on each of the two courses. The 64 lowest scores over the 36 holes and ties then compete in the match play final stage of the Championship. Each round of the knockout is played over 18 holes with the exclusion of the final which is played over 36 holes.[2]
