Established in 1989, The MercedesTrophy is a worldwide amateur golf tournament that has earned international recognition on the competitive golfing calendar. Each year over 60,000 players from over 60 countries take part and this year you could be one of them.
Mercedes-Benz South West are proud to support the competition and are now calling on local golfers to register their interest in taking part. If successful, you will be invited to compete at local, regional and national events before qualifying to represent the UK at the World Finals in Stuttgart.
The all-expenses-paid tournament is open to any current Mercedes-Benz owner who is a member of a recognised golf club and who holds an active competition handicap.
To gain a place in the MercedesTrophy Tournament, owners can register for our tournament ballot.
The MercedesTrophy tournament is competed in three handicap categories throughout (0-10, 11-18 and 19+). The winners from each category will progress to the next round of the tournament as detailed above.

Watch last years' finalists compete in the 2018 National Final at St Andrews
“Last year I was contacted by Mercedes to see if I wanted to be entered into the draw to play in the MercedesTrophy and it was the best thing that I could have ever done. I never win anything in a draw, but this time I got lucky and was picked to play in the first qualifying round at Oake Manor. A well organised day and not a bad round saw me qualify for the area final at St Mellion. Two lovely Courses and two well organised days, though they could not have prepared me for what was to come…”

Hear from previous contestants:
“The MercedesTrophy competition has been an amazing experience. It has allowed me to play golf on courses under tournament conditions that I would otherwise not have had the opportunity to do. Away from the golf, the hospitality laid on by Mercedes has been overwhelmingly generous.”
– James Macey, Oake Manor Golf Club
“This was my first experience of the MercedesTrophy, from local qualifying to St Georges Hill Golf Club in Surrey, it has been 5 star all the way – well done Mercedes-Benz South West.”
– Graham Ruth – Tavistock Golf Club.
“St Georges Hill was amazing and the 2 nights away were unbelievable – Mercedes-Benz really did look after us well. I enjoyed every moment of the competition from the local qualifier, retailer event to the Market area final, and every step went without a single hitch. Thank you again and I will be trying everything I can to qualify again next year.”
– Leigh Jarrett – Wrangaton Golf Club
