Norfolk and Suffolk Golf League - the 'Thursday League'
Four golf clubs, Bungay and Waveney, Caldecott Hall (2 teams), 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.
