GolfSixes League

Since the creation of the GolfSixes League in 2017, Elsham have successfully encouraged it’s youngsters to take part in this exciting and innovative playing format. It is designed to give young golfers the opportunity to play on the golf course in a format that is fun, team based and suitable for beginners.

GolfSixes League involves teams of 6, playing six holes in pairs using the highly inclusive Texas Scramble format. This format is designed for non-handicap players, or 37 and above.

A Team League

Our more experienced WHS Juniors have the opportunity to take part in a six player team, and represent Elsham Golf Club, competing against local clubs in a Match Play League.

Seasonal Trophy Matches

Throughout the golfing year, we host a number of Trophy events for all of our WHS members. These take on a variety of formats, and see both boys and girls compete against one another, with the culmination being the Junior Club Championship at the end of the playing season.
