NERGA Rabbits

 

NERGA (North East Rabbits Golf Association) was founded in 2010 by 15 clubs with the ethos of providing competitive golf to high handicap golfers (16-28). The 15 clubs split into northern and southern zones.

 

This series has grown year on year and today in 29017 there are 34 clubs involved in 4 zones. This means over 500 golfers from across the region are playing in any one season.

 

The format of the competition is an eight man team playing an individual stableford competition at one venue. Full handicap allowance is given and it is played from yellow tees. The top seven scores count towards a teams total NERGA score on the day and the winning team is awarded 8 points, 7 points for 2nd place and so on. The accumulated points over the 8 venues sees the top clubs playing in the finals day. The best runner up across the 4 zones also participates in finals day.

 

There is also an individuals final to be competed on finals day. The highest scoring player from each team taken from their best 3 scores of the season count towards this.

 

The finals day for 2017 is at Woodham Golf Glub.

 

Blackwell Grange are in the NERGA Green zone with the following clubs:

 

Darlington (BGGC scored 241 points and finished 2nd on the day)

Ripon City - 7th May

Bishop Auckland (we don't play this fixture due to it being a 9 team league)

Home fixture - Jun 17th

Kirkbymoorside - Jul 1st

Thirsk and Northallerton - Jul 29th

Catterick - Aug 13th

Our best performance was qualifying for the 2014 finals day as best runners up across the zones. On the day we finished 2nd overall. Can we go 1 better in 2017?

INTERMEDIATES

 

Following on from the success of the NERGA Rabbits section, in 2015 an intermediate league was started for lower handicappers (8-15) as a lot of rabbits had seen their handicaps go below the eligibility preventing them from playing in the NERGA league.

 

Currently there are 21 teams involved over 3 zones.

 

The format of the competition is an eight man team playing an individual stableford competition at one venue. Full handicap allowance is given and it is played from white tees. The top seven scores count towards a teams total league score on the day and the winning team is awarded 7 points, 6 points for 2nd place and so on. The accumulated points over the 7 venues sees the top clubs playing in the finals day. The best runner up across the 3 zones also participates in finals day.

 

There is also an individuals final to be competed on finals day. The highest scoring player from each team taken from their best 3 scores of the season count towards this.

 

Finals day for 2017 is at Woodham Golf Club
