Welcome to the Website of NERGA – The North East Rabbits Golf Association.
NERGA League was formed in 2010. It has two major aims, to provide inter club golf for higher handicappers and to raise revenue for the participating Clubs.
It is the only league of its kind in the North where clubs as far a field 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 in a friendly atmosphere, but with a more than competitive twist to it!
2014 is will be our best year to date – 28 clubs compete in 4 zones. It will see over 250 high handicap golfers playing in 28 matches around our regions, all hoping to be part of one of the 4 Zone winning clubs plus best runner-up who will go on to compete in the NERGA Championship Day at Rockcliffe Hall, on Sunday 5th October. Also taking part will be the 28 best Club players hoping to be the crowned the Individual NERGA Champion for 2014.
A match day is 7 clubs 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!
NERGA league benefits its’ member clubs in several ways; it provides good inter club competition, it develops good club relationships and it generates an income for the clubs involved. We are openly encouraging you, the clubs of Northumberland, Durham, Cleveland and Yorkshire to come and have a taste.
If you think you know of any Club who aren’t playing in the NERGA League structure, or you are a member of a Club similarly positioned then why not contact the leagues secretary Martin Hill and we can give you more details on how to join.
Please feel free to browse our website, all match results and Zone Tables will be updated after each match. Follow the ups and downs of your Clubs Rabbits team and I look forward to meeting you during the course of the season be it as a competitor or spectator – enjoy your season.
Chairman – Adrian Brakenberry.
