In the 1960's members of the Club felt that there was a gap in the amateur golf calendar. Tournaments were not as common as they are now and these were often held in the south of England and it was thought that a 72 hole strokeplay event in the North West was needed. The National Unions and leading players were approached for support and the first event in 1965 produced a tie between Clive Clark and M.F.Bonallack.
The Lytham Trophy is held each year at the beginning of May. One round being played on the Friday and Saturday and the final two rounds, for those that have made the cut, on the Sunday. Being the first major event in the amateur golf calendar each year it attracts attention from all the national selectors.
Every winner takes away a replica of the handsome "Sputnick" Trophy which was donated by members subscriptions. All winners have been international golfers of the highest quality and many have gone on to be successful professionals.
In 1999 the Lytham Trophy was won for the first time by a player from Continental Europe – Tino Schuster from Germany.
