THE Tom Smart Trophy at Ludlow GC is an annual event which was first played for in 2009 when their Seniors member Tom Smart donated the trophy in recognition of all the friendship received from many of the clubs that he had played at and against over the years.  He died in 2019 the evening before the competition.
