Prince Bishop Golf League
Hetton le Hill Golf Community Club currently has two teams competing in the
Prince Bishop Golf League, the “Swans” and the “Cygnets”.
The league is a matchplay league for teams of five players.
There are also matchplay knockout competitions for 7 man, 3 man and
foursomes teams. Matches are played at home and away during the summer
Players compete off handicap so the league is not dominated by the elite low
handicappers and we have a range of players from low single figure handicaps
up to high handicappers.
For many players it is their first experience of competitive team golf between
clubs and at first the thought can be a little daunting. After one or two matches
though they quickly realise how exciting and fun this format can be, especially
when they realise that they are playing against like minded people off similar
handicaps and that the matches are played in the best of spirits.
Add to that a free round of golf on a different course, a free meal, a couple of
beers and some good “crack” after the match and players are soon keen to
retain their position in the squad.
Teams currently competing in the league are:-
Crook Golf Club A Team
Crook Golf Club B Team
Oakleaf Golf Club - Newton Aycliffe
Ineos Golf Club – Newton Aycliffe
We are always looking for new clubs to join the league, so if you are interested
please make contact with one of the officials at Hetton le Hill Community Golf
