The English Amateur is the national amateur match play golf championship of England. It has been played annually since 1925 (except for war years) and is organized by the English Golf Union.

The English Men's Amateur Championship is contested through two phases. It begins with a 36 hole stroke play competition, with the leading 64 competitors progressing to the knock-out match play competition. Since there are exactly 64 places available in the knock-out stage, countback over the championship course, then back 9, back 6, back 3 and back 1 hole determine tie resolution. All matches in the knock-out phase are played over 18 holes except the final, which is played over 36 holes.

The equivalent stroke play championship is the Brabazon Trophy.
