Overview

The Boyd Quaich is an international student tournament hosted by the University of St Andrews with competitors from Australia, Asia, Africa, the USA, Canada and Europe competing for the prestigious Quaich.

It occupies an amazing spot in the calendar by being played on the Old Course and the New Course right in the middle of July, competitors also are allowed to use the facilities in the world famous R&A Club House. The strength of the field increases every year and the event counts for the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR). The tournament is played in memory of two brothers, Quentin and Anthony Boyd, both St Andrews students, who were killed in action during the Second World War.
