Copley Country Club has a very active league program for golfers of all ages and ability. You do not have to be a member to play in these leagues, greens fees will apply in addition to the league fees. Contact the Pro Shop for exact details.
Men’s League- Wednesdays
Nine hole, stroke play using a modified Stableford scoring system.
This system, brought into play a few years ago, has made the league both challenging and competitive for everyone. Points are rewarded on the following basis; Bogey – 1 pt, Par – 2 pts, Birdie – 4 pts, Eagle – 6 pts. Each player must make an assigned number of points based on previous play or initially, their handicap. The player then turns in a score on that basis, i.e., points required 7, points made 9 would net a round score of +2 or points required 7, points made 5 would net a round score of -2. Points required may change weekly based on previous play, points increasing with positive scores, decreasing with negative scores or no change when only the required points are made.
Individually, accumulated points for the entire season. Plus weekly team competition.
$50 entry fee and $6 per week.
Copley Credits awarded weekly to the winning teams and at seasons end for individual winners.
Note: Non-members are encouraged to join the Wednesday night men’s league, contact the pro-shop for more information regarding fees and tee times.

Individual Point Scoring System
