History
Hickson Trophy

       
The Hickson Trophy was first contested in 1989.
The format of the competition has remained unchanged since then and is a
straight knock-out tournament held on a single day
involving
eight representative teams from towns in South and West Yorkshire.
    
The eight towns take it in turn to host the event which is played on
seven different greens with no green being played on more than once.
