CGI launch GolfSixes League

​Due to its 2019 success CGI have teamed up with the Golf Foundation and The R&A to run a new ‘intra-club’ Golf Sixes League​

  • 07 August 2020

2019 GolfSixes league participants at the Regional Qualifiers


In 2019, Confederation of Golf in Ireland piloted the first Junior GolfSixes League Regional and National Finals in Ireland. Over 80 Clubs participated with over 2,500 juniors playing the GolfSixes League in their club. 

Due to its success CGI have teamed up with the Golf Foundation and The R&A to run a new ‘intra-club’ Golf Sixes League (internal, within one club) competition series. This will allow juniors to enjoy the team competition and social benefits of the ‘Sixes’ format, starting in August 2020 for the remainder of the year in their own club.
 
The first 60 clubs who sign up will receive resources required to run regular competitive team golf. Please ensure only one entry is submitted per club.
 
Resources your club will receive:
- Official GolfSixes League Tee Markers.
- GolfSixes League scorecard, purpose designed for the format and the scoring.
- Digital posters that can be printed to encourage team sign up for each fixture.
- Clipboards and pens.
- First Tee Checklist.
- Prizes (GolfSixes League branded T-shirts, water bottles, tee peg pack, drawstring bags)

The format is designed to support the juniors in your club; ideally your younger juniors and non-handicap players, or players with 28 handicap and higher for boys, or 36 handicap and higher for girls.
 
The intra-club event consists of playing six holes in pairs in the highly inclusive Texas scramble format, accumulating points for their team of six. To try and include as many from the junior section as possible and to alleviate the challenge of having any uneven numbers (i.e. not multiples of six) there is also guidance on running the original scoring format in pairs. The number of players in teams can be up to each club to decide and adjusted where suitable, however please follow the Texas scramble format and scoring.
 
If your club is interested please click this link https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/golf-sixes-intra-club-2020-tickets-115979667307 and a CGI representative will get you started and organise for the resources to be sent to your club. Resources are limited to the first 60 clubs and are offered on a first come first served basis.

Please note there is a €20 fee per club with all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Ireland.
