Mid-Week Golf League
Our popular golf league is now in its fourth year and provides an opportunity for local business to participate in a competitive but fun tournament.
Our mid-week league runs on Wednesday nights from May to July. Teams battle it out for a chance to win the £500 first prize and be crowned Mid-Week golf league champions! We have teams from local business, local clubs and even a team of parents and teachers from the local Ley Hill School. This is a competitive but fun competition which is open to non-members, male or female, young or old, with or without an official handicap.

Each team has a squad of seven, or more, players. Each week, the teams will choose four of their squad to play against an opposition team. The best three scores from each team will count towards the overall team score. A winning team will score two league points while the losing team does not score any points. A tied match will mean one point for each team. The top two teams at the end of the league will play in the final to decide who is the champions. On finals night, the squad members from the remaining teams will play in a stapleford competition.
Each week there will be prizes for the best stableford scores in each match, nearest-the-pin and longest drives. The overall champion team receives a prize of £500.
Applications are invited for entry into the 2020 league
In 2020 there will be eight league teams. There is currently space for one further team. We are looking for a business or organisation who can field a squad of seven or more players for eight weeks during May, June and July. Only four of the squad are required to play each week and not all of the squad need to be affiliated to the organisation. Matches start at 6pm on Wednesday night and players are expected to stay for the prize-giving at about 8.30pm. There is food and drink available after the golf. Players do not need to be members of a golf club and they do not need an official congu handicap but they are expected to have some experience of golf. The team will also need a captain who will be responsible for team selection.
