The Trawlermen won the league by just one half of a point so well done to them.  It has been a  long season with plenty of action. The Millennium Cup was won by Caister NTB's, beating Bungay 3-2 in the final.Our thoughts are now concentrating  on Saturday the 8th September with the Tony Daniels event to be held at Gorleston.

Final  Millennium Cup - the final was held on Thursday the 16th August at Rookery Park between Bungay Black Dogs and Caister NTB's. There was great camaraderie beforehand with both teams definitely up for the match. The rain had stopped in time so it was not a repeat of last weeks deluge games. The winners were the NTB's who won with with the last putt to win 3-2.  Fantastic result and commiserations for Bungay.

Very many thanks to Rookery Park for hosting the final  and Peter Bunn for greeting the players before the start.

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.
