The Hopetoun Medal was established during the first ever Governors Cup in 2001.
It is awarded to the player that according to his fellow competitors displays the highest levels of golfing ability, sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct over the course of the three day tournament.
The Hopetoun Medal is awarded through a democratic voting system, with each player casting votes at the end of each day’s play to determine who deserves the Hopetoun honors.
Votes are cast by awarding 3, 2 & 1 Points to each of the competitors in the group on that day.
Players cannot award points to themselves.
The votes will be tallied and announced at the final presentation evening after the last days play.
When casting votes its important to seriously consider your competitors golfing ability and conduct to ensure that the tradition of the Hopetoun Medal continues to carry the mark of a true sportsman as previous medal winners can attest.
