Welcome to the website of the Midland Scratch League 2019

For those of you who are unaware, Frank Welch has had to relinquish his role in running the Scratch League during the season, through a combination of age and illness.

Words cannot express the debt I and the league owes him.  Over the many years, he has been extremely contentious and hardworking and treated the league as a love affair!

He will be sorely missed.

I am delighted to say Mike Wittin has kindly volunteered to take over Frank’s role

John Shaw

The league was formed in 1975 by Bill Blake of Handsworth golf club and John Shaw; initially started with seven clubs

  • Great Barr

  • Handsworth

  • Maxstoke Park

  • Olton

  • Robin Hood

  • Sandwell Park

  • Sutton Coldfield

By 2012 that number has risen to 55 and split into 9 divisions. The clubs are from the following affiliated counties:

  • Staffordshire  -  22

  • Worcestershire  -  16

  • Warwickshire  -  16

  • Shropshire  -  1

The county breakdown for 2017 is:

  • Staffordshire--18

  • Worcestershire--16

  • Warwickshre--13

  • Shropshire--1

  • Totalling--48

Matches are 8 a side singles playing off level on a home and away basis.

It is undoubtedly a very competitive league and over the years has seen some good quality golf played.

The passage of time has seen many changes particularly on the rules.  Some examples being allowing the use of GPS measuring devices, ladies being allowed to play for their club.

Match results will continue to be updated on a regular basis.
