Scene from the 1893 Varsity Match on Wimbledon Common
The annual University Golf Match, first played on March 6 1878 at Wimbledon Common, is both the oldest team event in golf and golf's oldest amateur event (the Amateur Championship would not begin for another seven years). The Oxford and Cambridge Golfing Society, founded in 1898, is also the oldest golfing society in the world.
