|First Presented in 1919, this Silver Loving Cup donated by the Daily and Sunday News was presented to Dayton County Club for Vin Hilton's first recorded Dayton Area Amateur Championship. Mr. Hilton then went on to win the 1920 & 1921 championship. We assume retiring the first trophy. In 1922, Howard Jordan won the championship and his name was engraved onto a new trophy that was also donated by the Daily and Sunday News. The second trophy was then award to Vin Hilton for his fourth win and Jack Parrott in 1924 before both trophies where lost for decades! |
During a renovation in the early 2000's at Dayton Country Club both trophies where found tarnished and dented. They have been straightened and polished and a base added with all the amateur champions through the years.
