The fifth and final series of matches are played at one venue on the same day.

The web site is intended to give some history of the League and statistics from matches played over the years but most importantly, to provide a results service of the season’s competitions as they progress.
There are also links to the Web sites of each of the Clubs as well as other golf-related sites.
