The Wednesday League has been played at the Royal Jersey Golf Club for more than 40 years. It is a summer evening league and is played over 14 consecutive Wednesdays starting in early May. A players best 8 scores are used for the final league table standings.

 

The format has changed many times over the years but the league is generally for full and social members of the Royal Jersey who are category 3 or 4 golfers (13 handicap or greater). However, lower handicap players are welcome to play and take an active part in the League.

 

The fee for entry to the league is £10 and each competitor will contribute £3 per round played for the weekly & annual prizes plus the ever popular weekly golf ball draw. A player must stay for dinner to be eligible for the golf ball draw and Birdie 2 balls.

7th April - Wednesday League Season 2021.  Please click HERE to read the guidelines for the season subject to change due to the continuing effect of Covid on all of our lives.

 

Wednesday League Tour 2021.

Sadly, this year's Tour follows that of 2020 in having to be cancelled. Changes to planned flights, coupled with UK restrictions on the playing of golf and Club house hospitality would mean that it would be nearly impossible to have the matches we normally have has part of the schedule.

 

Should things improve into the second half of the year, and circumstances permit, we might look into a smaller Tour?

 

Let's hope that locally, and giving us all some consolation, John is able to start the WL season with no problems.

 

I will be sending out an email to all the travelling party with more details.

 

Thanks to all, and Stay Safe.

To all Wednesday League members past and present, the sad news this year of the deaths of Brian Troy and David Blake, both will be sadly missed.

 

Brian, as both a long-standing member of WL and while as RJGC Captain both hugely supportive and aware of the significance the WL had within the Clubs golfing calendar.

David, a regular participant of the WL seasons each year, and since its start, a supporter of the WL Tour each year.

 

News on the Wednesday League Tour 2021, all still good for the 19th to 23rd April. The Itinerary is still the same, flights are booked, however nearer the time BA will confirm as to whether it will be Gatwick or Heathrow that we'll use?

We are staying again at Kingswood so it won't make too much of a difference if it is Heathrow.

 

I'll be putting up a notice on the WL board at the Club house in early January, in terms of the Itinerary etc. Also, a couple of those that were down for this year's tour won't be joining us next year, so there will be 3 or 4 spots to be filled, so if you want to give me a call ahead of the notice please do.

 

On the subject of the WL Tour, CBRE have, as well as the WL season itself, kindly sponsored prizes for the tour over the last 3 years.

Sadly, the sponsorship will not be continued into 2021, but I'm pleased to say that Jon will still be taking part during our season, and I'm sure joining us on the WL Tour.

 

So, on behalf of all Wednesday Leaguers, a big thank you to you Jon and CBRE for your support.

 

It just leaves me to say, Stay Safe!

 

'Merry Christmas' and with not too many golfing days left, 'A HAPPY NEW YEAR!' to all.
