The Glengarry Challenge was the second trophy to be given to the Utica Glengarries in 1950 by Marjorie Foster, our first President. A silver vase went to the winning team, and each member of the team received a pin in the shape of a Glengarry hat. For many years, the format was played by having a team sign up to challenge the previous winner. The challenge went on all during the season. The winner of the trophy was the team with the most winds during the season. This was an active competition until the '80s when it became more difficult to find the time to compete for the trophy.

The trophy then became associated with a daytime competition for a number of years and with a mixed event for a short time.

In 2003, the pin and the vase were reactivated. A tea pot and base were also given with winners engraved on the base. The winner of the trophy was declared the women's Club Champion. The antique tea pot is believed to be more than 100 years old and was donnated by Peggy Rotton. The base was crafted by Mr. Burnett, Mary Ellen Sofinski's father-in-law. In 2007 Eydie Savett donated pins for the runners-up of the Glengarry Challenge. The pins are designed after the original Glengarry Silver Vase Trophy. The names of the runners-up are engraved on a base crafted by Marge VanSlyke.
