In order to monitor the success, progress and development of golfers in the Leicestershire & Rutland Golf Union it was decided to introduce an Order of Merit in 2009

The original Order of Merit focused on performances in the county major tournaments and the inaugural winner was Jason Palmer from Kirby Muxloe Golf Club. In 2010, the Order of Merit was expanded to take into account performances in County matches (Pre-Season, Anglian League and Eastern Counties Foursomes). The winner of the Order or Merit is presented with a silver salver, donated by Stuart Marriott (Birstall Golf Club, L&RGU County Captain 2011, 2012 & 2013 L&RGU Vice President).

Scott Wormleighton (Birstall) has won the 2020 L&RGU Order of Merit, there were five tournaments that qualified for OoM points. Scott played in all five to score 334 points with the highlight being winning the county championship at his home club Birstall. It was however very close with former county captain Martin Anderson (Kibworth) finishing 2nd on 332.
