The late John Wright had a vision many years ago. Being Captain of two great Ayrshire Golf Clubs, West Kilbride in 1971-72 and Kilmarnock Barassie in 1973, John wanted to encourage the mutual golfing bond that the Clubs shared and donated a silver tankard to be contested annually ...in a very specific way. There would be five matches played as foursomes, to a finish with the total 'holes up' being the winning factor. However, the Captains' match would be a social affair and only count in the event of a tie.
The trophy was named after Goldenberry Hill which overlooks the north end of West Kilbride Golf Course.
