Wednesday Night League – nine hole matches played on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer. 16 week season, with the week of the 4th off. You’re scheduled to play at least 11 of the 16 weeks, and generally guys who are available to play each week can find sub opportunities to get more weeks in. Individual matches, but team standings, playoffs, etc. Our Wed teams are 11 members and 8 play on any given Wed. You can join as a single or bring friends along. Typically we have a draft for team captains to fill their team up. Each captain can keep 7 of their 11 players. Those players cut and new guys end up in the draft pool. If you wish to play with a buddy, we can make that known to the captains during draft night. There are 16 teams of 11 players each : 176 members max.
Weekend Tournaments – we run 10 weekend tournaments throughout the summer of varied format. We usually get 40-60 players for each event and pay out prizes, provide free beer/sodas, manage scoring, etc. You can play in however many you want – 0, some, all – whatever. You pay for each one individually but must be a BMGA member AND a Brookview patron. There is no maximum membership
If you join league, you join for the season.
