Back in April 2020 we were forced to postpone GolfSixes League due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Golf Foundation, working with its major supporter The R&A and England Golf launched a new ‘intra-club’ (internal, within one club) competition series. The aim was to allow your juniors to enjoy the team, competition and social benefits of the ‘Sixes’ format. Specially created for those golf clubs which had registered for postponed GolfSixes League, this intra-club format offered all the resources needed to run regular competitive team golf for junior sections all over the UK.
We are pleased that we are now able to support clubs in running the popular GolfSixes League format across the Home Nations once again in Summer 2021.
The core fundamentals of the format have reamined the same with the children playing six holes in pairs using the highly inclusive Texas Scramble format, accumulating points for their team of six. This format is designed for non-handicap players, or 37 and above
To support all clubs who are part of a GolfSixes League in 2021, there are a host of resources and FAQ'S available on the GolfSixes League Log-in page of the Golf Foundation website. (Resources include detailed guidance, marketing posters, and scorecards.)
Golf clubs must meet the safeguarding criteria required to deliver GolfSixes League activity. However, if you are not already working through the SafeGolf accreditation please visit the England Golf website here to start this process.
We would like to wish all clubs and children who are part of GolfSixes League in 2021 the best of luck and we can not wait to see you all back on the golf course when the league fixtures begin this Summer!
