New Rules & Revision, New Divisions
There are 19 teams competing in BCL this summer.
- 8 teams make the playoffs.
- The season starts May 28th and continues through the weekend of August 6-7.
- There are four divisions - East, North, South, and West
- The winner of each division during the regular season will automatically qualify for the playoffs (tiebreaker based on highest average points during the regular season)
- The remaining four playoff qualifiers will be chosen based on overall record during the regular season of all of the remaining teams (tiebreaker based on highest average points scored in regular season matches)
As is customary, the host coach for each match should reach out to the visiting coach on Monday the week of the match to let them know what time to arrive for their Saturday match, confirm that food will be provided, number of players that the visiting team can bring, dress code, etc. If the visiting coach has not heard anything from the head coach, the visiting coach should reach out directly to the host coach.
In your scoring matches, you must have at least 3 bona-fide players (regular or junior members, grandkids) in each match and no more than five other players. A player must also play in at least two matches during the season (including unofficial practice matches) to be eligible to play in the playoffs. Complete rules are posted on the website.
Send in your final team roster no later than June 15th. Note that a player must be listed on your team roster by that date to be eligible to play BCL this summer. Exceptions will considered on a case by case basis.
NEW RULE – Due to positive feedback from the coaches, eligibility for BCL participation will
continue to include players who turn age 22 or younger during the current calendar year.
2021 Bay Cities League of Junior Golfers Champions
The Chris Woodward Championship Perpetual Trophy.
Chris was an active member, officer and director of Bay Cities for nearly 20 years. He tragically passed away while on a business trip. As an avid golfer, a walker, and a traditionalist to the core values which golf brings to daily life, Chris leaves a legacy of commitment and dedication to youth sports and especially to Bay Cities League of Junior Golfers. We are honored and proud to name the League's championship trophy after him.
Bay Cities League of Junior Golfers is the nation's premier junior golf league. It consists of 28 private and semi-private golf clubs in the greater San Francisco Bay Area that range in location from Half Moon Bay and Olympic Club in the West, Santa Rosa C. C. to the North, Crow Canyon to the East, and Pasatiempo and Silver Creek Valley C.C. to the South. These clubs are all among the top ranked and most highly admired golf courses in California. At least four courses were designed by Alister MacKenzie (Meadow, Pasatiempo, Green Hills and Claremont), as well as Donald Ross (Peninsula) heritage.
Our co-ed junior players range in ages from 7 through 21 (there is no lower age limit). Many of the juniors are the children and grand-children of club members, but most clubs encourage participation by non-member juniors living in the community, reaching out to those who would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate in such a junior golf program. Our coaches are all volunteers.
Bay Cities junior players are young men and women who compete because of their love of the game, their desire to learn and improve their skills, and because they find truth and respect in good, fair competition. As they grow and develop, they comprise some of the top-ranked junior and amateur players in the country. Some go on to college level golf, and some have become stars on the PGA, LPGA, and other tours. All have gone on to enduring friendships with not only their teammates, but also with their playing opponents. Our juniors golfers add fresh and energetic enthusiasm to the game of golf and to their home clubs.
