The Wednesday Four Balls is the longest established of all of Northwood’s roll ups and is regarded as an integral part of the golf club’s fabric and history. All members of the club are welcome to join like minded individuals in convivial social and golfing interaction.
We meet every Wednesday afternoon and play Better Ball Stableford for pairs in drawn groups of four. There are small weekly cash prizes for the three highest scoring pairs and points are accumulated in an annual competition for the Huggins Cup which is also a Board competition. The Huggins Cup year normally starts in May and concludes the following April. However, this year's competition has been extended until the end of June.
Usually, we all meet in the clubhouse from 11:15 with the draw being made at 11:45. However, due to the current restrictions, sign up is via the club’s tee booking system. There are various ways to enter the draw:
§ Sign up on the club website. This is our preferred method. Go to the club’s Home Page, then My Tee Times and click on Book A Tee Time. Go to the required Wednesday and click on the “Fourball Wednesday’s Roll-up”. Take care that you don’t inadvertently sign up for the Northwoodian Roll-up which starts at 10:30

After the round we would normally all meet up in the clubhouse for refreshments and to announce the results. Now that the terrace is open we will, weather permitting, be able to have a drink with our playing partners but as time and space are limited we will continue to record the scores, results and winners through our WhatsApp group and via email.
Cost of entry is just £2 per week with half of the proceeds being split amongst the pairs coming first, second and third (with everyone’s winnings being added to their barcard once a year). The other half goes into a fund to pay for the prizes for the Huggins Cup winners.
