Season 2024

(Formed 1973)

 

What a Washout!

 

Cup quarter final week was devastated by the midweek deluge with not a single shot played in the eight games.
The forecast was all-too accurate as the heavy rains came in on Wednesday afternoon.
And the telephone and social media links were certainly busy as captains liaised with host clubs and catering managers.
It was the same on Thursday with all the games ruled out by mid-afternoon.
The quarter finals will now take place in the week commencing June 3 that had originally been fixtured for the semi finals.
Six ties will actually take place as  Denton 'A' and Oldham 'A' had already conceded their ties due to unavailability.
The only change to the line-up is that the 'B' Cup clash between C & Royton 'B' and Denton 'B' will now take place at North Manchester rather than Werneth as the Garden Suburbs club is not available that week.
Back to the league action after all that inactivity... let's hope the weather settles down.

 

Notes:


**
Captains’ note: please address speed of play as games still finishing in the near-dark.

If your club has been chosen to host a cup game it is YOUR responsibility to alert golf managers/ catering that the tie is taking place.

And, similarly, it is courtesy to tell them if you do NOT have a tie so that they can release those tee times to members/ visitors.

Welcome to the Oldham and District Golf League (formed 1973)

The League was conceived as an opportunity for local golfers to play competitively against other golf clubs in the local area and at the same time develop camaraderie between them. The intention is to enjoy good golf courses with sporting companions in a friendly but competitive atmosphere.

The League was composed of 2 Divisions from the outset but the Cup competition was not introduced until 1980. Initially, the League was based on singles matches in the A Division and the first Secretary was A L Davidson (Saddleworth GC). In those early years, the league was less competitive and League Tables were not produced until the last match of the season had been played! In 1982, Barry Matthews (League Secretary) and Carl Cunnelly (Fixtures Secretary) ran the League on a more organised and formal basis until 2005. In 1991 the end of season Brian Atack Tournament was added to compete for individual and team trophies.

Since 2005, the trio of Saddleworth's John Walsh (chairman), Ashton's Brendan Kennedy (secretary) and Werneth's David Whaley (fixtures secretary) guided the league through an expansion into a four division format with the addition of teams from North Manchester, Blackley, Crompton & Royton and Castle Hawk. The league changed further in 2017 with the introduction of promotion and relegation between the two 'A' divisions and Howard Lawton (North Manchester) took over as League Secretary. In 2023 David Whaley (Saddleworth) assumed the role of League Secretary with Howard Lawton standing down as Treasurer.
