History

The Coronation Foursomes were first played as an 18-hole medal foursome, in 1953 to commemorate the Queen's Coronation. The finals were played at Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club, and were limited to 150 pairs which included 25 pairs from overseas.

The format continued as medal and by 1969 three finals were held, one each in Scotland, North England and Southern England. Ten final places were still kept for Commonwealth players. An extra final was added in Scotland in 1977.

A Midlands final was added in 1980, a 2nd final in the South was added in 1985, then during the early 90's a Welsh final, another Midlands and Northern final.
