Earl Grey Cup

Canadian Men’s Amateur Trophy (1908 – Present)

Earl Grey Cup

There is no amateur golf championship in Canada with a richer history than the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship. Following the 1907 championship, the Aberdeen Cup was retired and was replaced the following year with the Earl Grey Cup. A match play event from the time of the Aberdeen Cup, the Amateur changed to stroke play for the 1969 championship and remained that way through 1994 when it reverted to match play in honour of the RCGA’s and the championship’s centennial in 1995. The championship once again reverted to stroke play in 2008. In 2010, the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship changed to a double field format for the first time ever. Named after and donated by Canada’s Governor General at the time, Lord Earl Grey, the Earl Grey Cup has been handed out yearly to the Men’s Amateur champion since 1908. The top of the trophy is made from sterling silver, and has been crafted into an octagonal bowl with lions’ heads on two sides for its handles. The names of past champions are engraved on its sides. The base is made of solid marble interspersed with four individual rings of maple surrounding sections of the marble, and also has the names of past champions engraved on individual sterling silver plaques that are attached to the maple sections.
