With the success of the tournament over the past two years, Nespresso, the leaders in premium-portioned coffee, and Golf Monthly, the UK's number one golf publication, are pleased to announce the launch of the 2013 Nespresso Trophy UK Challenge.

A nationwide amateur tournament with a Ryder Cup theme, players will team up for a ‘Better Ball Pairs Stableford' competition.

This year, 120 teams are set to compete across three Regional Rounds (40 pairs in each) played at The Mere in Cheshire, Foxhills in Surrey and firstly, on June 26, at the prestigious Woburn Golf Club.

Following the Regional Rounds, the top two pairs from each will head to San Sebastián - the capital of Spain's Basque Province - for an exclusive and totally unique ‘Meet José Maria Olazábal' event. José Maria says: "My goal with the Nespresso Trophy was to create a unique experience for people who love gourmet coffee and golf."

The event promises to be one of the highlights in the Nespresso calendar, giving you the chance to play some of the best courses in the UK this summer, before meeting up with one of the game's modern greats...
