Every year on a Friday in August The Guild of Battlefield Guides hold their Annual Golf Championships at a Golf Course on or near to a battlefield. Guild members are encouraged to invite golfing guests.  In the morning all members from the Golf Club concerned are invited to a presentation on a battlefield subject. After a light lunch the Championship is played in the Stapleford format. The Guild Champion and Runner up receive their trophy’s at the Championship Dinner in the evening.
