The Hack Attack Golf League takes place once a month, which is usually the first Sunday of the month. Unlike many other leagues, the venue also changes every month between Newcastle Golf Club, Kilbarchan Golf Club and Vulintaba.
Each player pays a certain amount of money for each game. These monies will then go towards the funds for the winner of the day, while a certain percentage will go towards the club’s funds.
There will also be a membership fee, which will cover the players’ shirts and caps. Golfers don’t have to be an affiliated golf member to join the league or to play.
