Norfolk and Suffolk Golf League - the 'Thursday League'

Millennium Cup Latest

The final was played on the 15th August at Caldecott Hall. Bungay beat the Rookery  Rebels 3-2 to win the Millennium Cup for the 1st time since 2003.  Well done Bungay and commiserations to Rookery who just failed to win. It was a great night for friendship. Many thanks to Peter Bunn and to Jim Barber for their continued efforts over the years for the Thursday league. Jim is off to Lincolnshire and Peter is stepping down from the captaincy.

Thursday League Setup

Five golf clubs, Bungay and Waveney, Caldecott Hall (2 teams), Gorleston, Gt Yarmouth and Caister (2 teams) and Rookery Park (2 teams) play against each other in a league every Thursday between the last Thursday in April and the last Thursday in July, tee off time starting at 16.30. 

The matches are played alternately home and away, so four matches each Thursday.

The format is foursomes matchplay, with a maximum handicap of 21 and an younger age limit of  16, with five pairs per team. 

The original idea was to have a friendly set of matches between like minded golfers and for the most part the games are played in a great spirit, playing golf being the number one requirement with winning coming second. The matches always end up with dinner and drinks so a great time for all.

The league points are derived from the number of games won and drawn in each match. 

At the end of the season the winners are awarded trophies.

Players always required

It is easy to get involved. Speak to your club captain. We are always looking for more players to add to the pool for each team. 

It is a great and fun format and gives you a chance to play with different players of lower or higher handicap.

Even if you can only play a few games please consider putting your name down.
