Golf Leagues

Burning Tee Golf League

One of the PSU-hosted leagues is the Burning Tee Golf League. This league is for any

and all male golfers at least 50 years of age, no matter their skill level. If you want to

share some good times with other old duffers this is the league for you. It has been in

existence since 1960, with recent typical memberships of over 120 players.


The league normally plays every Tuesday morning, using both courses. Occasionally,

league play is scheduled on days other than Tuesdays but that is rare. Our season goes

from the middle of April to the beginning of October. We have an 18-hole division and a

9-hole division, with the 18-hole division more competitive, and the 9-hole division more

of a social event. In addition, we have upwards to ten different tournaments scheduled

throughout the year, some of them scrambles, while others are individual competition of

various formats. Also, we go on up to eight out-of-town trips to other golf courses

throughout the golf season. Tournaments and out-of-town trips usually are scheduled

for Thursdays.


Most of the information transfer to league members is done via email, but we have 2

meetings per year. The Spring Meeting in April, before the golf season begins, is where

we review changes for the upcoming season and have general league and course

discussions. New members are brought into the league every year and this is a good

time to meet your fellow golfers. We also have a banquet in October, the cost of which

is included in the annual league fees.
