St Andrews Links Announces Cancellation of Prestigious Amateur Events

March 26 2020

St Andrews Links Trust has been closely monitoring the constantly-moving situation in the COVID-19 pandemic and carefully following Government advice and medical guidance.

Following discussions with the organising committees of both the St Andrews Links Trophy and St Rule Trophy we have taken the decision today (26 March) to cancel the 2020 staging of both of these annual amateur tournaments.

St Andrews Links Trust Director of Golf John Grant said: “The health and wellbeing of our teams, entrants and their families is our number one priority. Following the closure of all our facilities and with many countries and regions recommending self-quarantine and continued restrictions on travel, we felt that it was not practical or appropriate to stage this year’s tournaments.

“With both events attracting entrants from around the world we wanted to make a decision as early as possible. We look forward to the return of both the St Andrews Links Trophy and St Rule Trophy to St Andrews Links in 2021.”

The organising committees are committed to refunding all entry payments within 10/14 days.
Entrants do not need to contact the tournament team in order to request a refund, these will be processed automatically via the original payment method.

The annual fortnight of competition hosted by St Andrews Links Trust for amateurs of all ages and abilities in August, including the Eden and Strathtyrum Tournaments, remain in the diary at present but are subject to continued monitoring and review. If there is any change in their status entrants will be contacted immediately.
