The English Challenge is a golf tournament on the Challenge Tour, played in England. It was held for the first time in 1993 and after the following edition there was a nine-year break before it made a one-off return in 2004.

The English Challenge returned to the schedule again in July 2010 at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa in Stoke-by-Nayland, Suffolk. Australia's Daniel Gaunt won the tournament by one stroke from English amateur Tommy Fleetwood and Scotland's Craig Lee.[1] The event was discontinued again after the 2012 tournament.

It returned again in 2016 at the Heythrop Park Resort in Enstone as the Bridgestone Challenge.[2]
