The CBRE Wednesday League
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.

27th July - The 2020 Wednesday League Tour to the UK as you'll all be aware was cancelled earlier this year, and sadly it has been decided to cancel this Septembers visit of Woodcote Park GC to Jersey, this would have also been our Home match in the yearly away / home 2 fixture matches we have with them.
On the positive side, the dates for the 2021 Tour to Surrey have been booked, April 19th to 23rd, more details will be available nearer the time, but in brief;
This will include staying & playing at Kingswood GC, also playing Walton Heath GC & Chobham GC, with WL Team matches at Woodcote Park GC & Farnham GC, the latter in celebration of the Clubs 125th Anniversary.
The party in number for next year will be a maximum 28 in total, with those who were down to go on this year's Tour having first choice, then open to WL members who have played in previous years during our 14 weeks of competition.
Tour information will go up on the Wednesday League notice board, along with updates on the Tour as is required.
I know that next year's Tour is many months away, but if anyone would like to ask a question or confirm anything, please feel free to get in contact, my details are on the 'contact' page on this website.....
.....Stay Safe to all, Bob Bowden.
19th May - Due to information recently received from the club copied below - it seems extremely unlikely that the league will take place this season. Let's hope that 2021 brings better news. Stay safe everyone.
Competition & Matches – Following a recent meeting with the Captain and Lady Captain it was agreed that all remaining inter club fixtures for 2020 will be cancelled. Many of these fixtures are very ‘social’ orientated and with restaurants a long way off from returning to normal, socially distancing in the clubhouses for 20, 30 or 40 players is going to be extremely difficult, if not impossible.
All other ‘Open’ competitions and JGU & JLGA fixtures have also been cancelled for the year.
24th March - Sadly this season's Wednesday League Tour has been cancelled due to the ongoing Corona virus and the closure of clubhouses and golf courses.
News regarding the league this season will be posted here as and when available.
