Estonian Golf & Country Club hosts world’s oldest golf club for biennial matchplay

October 24, 2013

Estonian Golf and Country Club has welcomed the return of Royal Blackheath Golf Club to compete for The Schmidt Trophy.

The two-day biennial tournament, named after the founder and President of Estonian Golf & Country Club Mait Schmidt, was staged on the highly acclaimed Sea Course - ranked in  Golf World  magazine's Top 100 Golf Courses in Continental Europe.

On day one of competition the team from Estonian Golf & Country Club, part of the European Tour Courses network, held the returning champions from Royal Blackheath - the world's oldest golf club - to a 4.5-4.5 draw. 

However, the visitors proved the stronger side on day two winning six points from an available nine to win 10.5-7.5.

Hanno Kross, Estonian Golf & Country Club Chief Executive, said: "The inaugural match for The Schmidt Trophy was the first international club match staged in Estonia and we enjoy a good relationship with Royal Blackheath, which enables us to continue this special event. I am already looking forward to contesting the next match in two years time."

Royal Blackheath Golf Club will have the opportunity to defend The Schmidt Trophy when it hosts Estonian Golf & Country for the return fixture in October 2015.
