About us 

The Bristol & District Junior Golf League was set up some years ago, its origins being lost in the mists of time. Certainly it was in existence during the 1970's when Mr Des Alexander was the secretary.

Participation is open to all clubs within the geographical area who have a junior section able to field a team of 5 junior players (league cup) and 6 junior golfers, (knock-out cup) within the handicap criteria. (See rules below)
Application to join the league is simple. A club with junior golfers just applies to the secretary, they are considered and invited to become members depending on geographical location. Each club may enter up to 2 teams.

An annual subscription is payable by each club, currently £60.00, for each team entered, and payment of this subscription will be deemed as acceptance of the league rules.

Matches are played using England Golf recommendations of full handicap allowance.

Aims and Objectives

To encourage and develop junior golf within the Bristol and District area.

To give as many junior golfers, as possible, the opportunity to play golf against other junior golfers, in a match-play situation, and, to give them a taste of competitive golf in a friendly atmosphere, supervised by adults.

To encourage correct behaviour, etiquette and values to be displayed when participating in golf

What is expected?

It is expected that juniors demonstrate high standards of behaviour and conduct and respect the club environments, club and match officials, other juniors, accompanying adults and other club members.

It is expected that home clubs will offer drivers and escorts a courtesy round of golf, but this is by no means a statutory right. Visiting clubs are asked to check, in advance, not to abuse this sanction and to limit the number to four players unless previously agreed for more.

It is expected that home clubs provide food, following league matches, but not following knock-out matches, for team players, travelling reserves and team managers of the day.
