Building Trophies

I was aware that the trophy for the Masters Tournament was a replica of the clubhouse of the Augusta National Golf Course in Augusta, Georgia. However, do you know how many other sports trophies are also building replicas? The more research I did, the more trophies I found. AT&T National PGA golf tournament at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland gives the winner a large silver replica of the U.S. Capital. The Scottish Open golf tournament’s trophy is a model of Rhosdubh House, a Georgian mansion which is used as the clubhouse. The winner of the Emaar-MGF Indian Masters at the Delhi Golf Club receives a huge wooden arch as a trophy. Makes me want to take up golf just to get my hands on one of these beauties. Do you know of any other building-shaped trophies?
