Bishops Stortford Golf club has again entered a side to play in the Hertfordshire Tigers League for the 2019 season. The objective of the league is to provide an opportunity to play a variety of great courses in the county, enjoy the company of like-minded golfers in a less formal, more social, yet very competitive environment. Matches are played weekdays during the late afternoon/early evening, followed by an informal meal free of the formalities typical of inter club matches.


The league is made up of member clubs in Hertfordshire who are looking for competitive golf for weekday golfers with a handicap of 3 or higher. Teams consist of 5 pairs, each pair playing an 18-hole better-ball, match-play match, with strokes (3/4’s of difference) calculated off the lowest handicap in each match. Anyone with a handicap greater than 10 can play in the matches but will need to play off 10 for the match. So if this sounds like something you are interested in, then please make your interest known to the club, proshop or team captain, Will Baxter.

Bishops Stortford Golf Club is committed to giving everyone who makes themselves available for matches the opportunity to represent the club. In-form golfers will be given preference should the available players for any match exceed the required 10 players. Availability notices will be published and maintained on the website in good time before the start of the season with selected teams announced 2 weeks prior to each match.

The league is split into 2 divisions, with teams in each division playing each other in a home and an away fixture. The division winners in the one division, and runners-up of the other, play in a one-off semi-final hosted by the division winners. The winners of the semi-finals meet in a head-to-head final on Friday, the 27th of September 2019 at Essenden Golf Club. The remaining teams in the league participate in the finals day at Essenden Golf Club by competing in a team event, each team comprising of 2 pairs, playing a combined better-ball competition. In the event the BSGC Tigers team do not qualify for the final, preference will be given to team members who secured the most points for the team during the league season to represent the club and the BSGC Tigers team at the finals day.
