About The Duke of Edinburgh Cup
The British royal family have numerous commitments towards community and charitable services. His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has established and sponsored many charitable projects. This has made an outstanding impact to the development of charity and public welfare within the UK, as well as globally.
Since 2001, the world final tournament has been hosted in London, the Queen has given permission for the use of the course and to also facilitate the use of State Rooms at Windsor Castle for the annual prize giving dinner.
Over the past 18 years, the annual international amateur golf tournaments have been held in over 20 countries covering Europe, Asia, Oceania, and North and South America. In 2019, 9 qualified events have been confirmed to play in 8 countries between April and August 2019. Last year China was added to the list making it the sixth station for the charity. The tournament is open to male and female players and the agreed number of players with the best net Stableford score over the 18 hole course will qualify for the World Finals. The world finals will be taking place from late September to early October in Windsor.
The annual Duke of Edinburgh Cup international amateur golf series was established to benefit young people and children in need on a global scale. As well as the DoE Cup there is also the highly recognised Duke of Edinburgh International Award which was founded by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh KG, KT in 1956. This was in conjunction with Kurt Hagn, the German educationalist. The Duke of Edinburgh International Award is a programme consisting of three progressive levels, if completed successfully then the participant will receive a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
The programme is highly esteemed as it provides millions of 14 to 24-year-olds the opportunity and drive to be the best they can be on a voluntary, non-competitive basis. The purpose of the award is the hopes to help young people overcome hardships and adversity with the goal to strive for a better life. The award provides participants the confidence to do the things that they would otherwise not have access to. In the last eleven years, the project have raised and distributed over $5,000,000 (approximately £4,000,000) to charities in over 15 countries.
