Challenge Bowl (Foursomes Strokeplay)

A.K.A. The Wardle Trophy

Back to Archives 

This was originally the Wardle Trophy, presented in 1933 by Mrs E Wardle (Awoodley)
At this time she was Vice President of the Y.V.L.G.A. The trophy was originally designated for various silver division competitions but began to be played as a Foursomes Competition in 1955
Unfortunately due to damage a replacement trophy was provided in 1973 and the names engraved from 1955
Foursomes Strokeplay played at the Captain's home club
