The Civil Engineers' Club
Institution of Civil Engineers


Many of the Regions and Branches of the Institution run social and competitive golf during the year. However, The Thomas Telford Trophy is the highlight of the Golf Section year – it is an annual competition between teams of four players from each of the Regions/Branches of the Institution. The first Thomas Telford Trophy was held at Wentworth Golf Club in 1986, when Sir William Francis, then chairman of the Civil Engineers’ Club and of Thomas Telford Ltd, presented the cup to the winning Yorkshire team.

ICE Glasgow and West of Scotland Branch had the privilege of hosting the 36th Thomas Telford Trophy at Glasgow Golf Club, Gailes Links in Ayrshire on 29th August 2022.

The team from Northern Ireland won yet again, their fourth victory in the past six years. The members were Ben Adair, Edward Bill, Jonny McIlwaine and Gavin Wilson. They won with a total of 217 points. The London team were runners-up on 213 points.
