Boys Medal


1847 - Boys Open Medal

A manifest example of The Blackheath Club's pioneering heritage is its creation of the concept known as 'open' competition, ie one open to participants who are not members of the Club, by virtue of its inaugurating the Boys' Medal in 1847. This medal is, therefore, the oldest open competition in the world, 13 years older indeed than The Open Championship itself a little known fact, but one in which we justifiably take great pride!
