Welcome to the Website of NERGA – The North East Rabbits Golf Association.
The NERGA League was formed in 2010 with two major aims. To provide inter club golf for higher handicappers and to raise much needed revenue for those participating Clubs.
It is the only league of its kind in the North where clubs as far afield as Newcastle in Northumberland and York in North Yorkshire, plus Whitby, Filey and Scarborough on our East coast, come together as a league to play team golf which is not just friendly but can also be very competitive.
2013 will be our best ever year so far – seeing 23 clubs compete in 3 zones. It will see over 200 high handicap golfers playing in over 20 matches around our regions, all hoping to be part of one of the 3 Zone winning clubs who will go on to compete in the NERGA Championship Day at Rudding Park, Harrogate on Saturday 12th October. Also taking part will be the 23 best Club players hoping to be the crowned the Individual NERGA Champion for 2013.
On matchdays each team consists of 8 Players playing Stableford, on yellow tees, off full handicap. From these 8 players the best 7 scores are added together and this becomes the clubs score for that particular days’ competition. From this each club is allocated league points for that day, and at the end of the Zone matches it is the club with the most league points who tops the group and goes on to compete in NERGA Championship Day.
On this format alone we are unique within rabbits golf. And that is what makes this league so origin. It is a winning formula!
The NERGA league benefits its’ member clubs in several ways; it provides good inter club competition, it develops new club relationships and it generates a good income for the clubs themselves. We want to encourage you, the clubs of Northumberland, Durham, Cleveland and Yorkshire to come and have a taste.
If you think your club would be interested in entering the NERGA Lge in the future, then contact either Martin Hill or myself by email first and we will arrange a time to talk or come and meet up. We may even get you along to one of our matchdays and see if it is for you – I can promise a good days golf!
I close by saying good luck to you all and I look forward to meeting you one day perhaps playing in our league and enjoying your golf even more.
Chairman – Adrian Brakenberry.
Secretary – Martin Hill.
