League

- 23 June 2020

After careful consideration and discussions, the BGU Executive has made the difficult decision to cancel all BGU official leagues for 2020. Abrie Swanepoel, Director of Boland Golf Union, said: “The BGU has a proud history of hosting leagues for our member clubs for well over 50 years and I truly hope that we will be able to continue this legacy in 2021.”

Kruger League

The Krüger Challenge Cup was presented by C H Krüger M.D.F.R.C.S in 1919 for competition amongst the Country Golf Clubs of the Western Cape. This, Stirling Silver Trophy, is certainly the oldest being contested in the Boland, with Wellington Golf Club the first winner of this competition in 1919. The Krüger League was the top league in the Boland until 1993 when the Premier League was started.

Brodie League

Founded in 1935 when Mr P F Brodie, of Worcester, donated a trophy to the Boland Golf Sub Union, for the WPGU “Country Section”, Brodie, a handicap league, with maximum handicap of 14 allowed. It is most probably the league most enjoyed by the players,as it is more of a social game in comparison to the other leagues.

Ladies League

Boland Ladies Golf league is actively supported by a large section of the Boland Clubs and their members. There are currently three league divisions: Country Trophy, Sandhills Cup and Winelands.
