THE fine margin between victory and defeat were perfectly illustrated this week in what is becoming a tight race for the 'A' Premier Division title.
Brookdale claimed a 7-1 home win over 2017 double winners Denton 'A' but that wide margin could have been all so different as all four matches were decided on the final green - three in Brookdale's favour and one a halved game.
North Manchester took advantage of Ashton's week off to leapfrog them to the top with a 6-2 home win over bottom club Stamford.

And as the league reaches the halfway point the remaining Stamford v Blackley fixture could further tighten the standings.

Dukinfield 'A' are clear leaders of the 'A' Championship after a 6-2 win over visiting C&R and it would take a spectacular collapse over the second half of the season to deny Barrie Lees a return to the top flight in his first season in charge.

Oldham 'A' beat Saddleworth 'A' 5-3 to lift themselves off the foot of the table.

In the 'B' East, Danny Andrew was satisfied with four points on the road as Ashton 'B' drew 4-4 at Werneth but Denton closed the gap at the top to six points after a 7-1 win over Brookdale.

North Manchester 'B' stayed in touch with the narrowest of defeats at Stamford.

There are new leaders in the 'B' West as C&R 'B' beat Dukinfield 'B' 6-2  which was just enough to overtake Castle Hawk 'B'  who did well to get a share of the spoils in a 4-4 draw at Blackley 'B'.

The Saddlewortgh 'B' v Oldham 'B' match was postponed due to a clash with a Senior Open at the Ladcastle Road course. The game is to be played this coming week.

Next up (w/c June 10) are the cup semi finals. (see Tounaments)

Welcome to the Oldham and District Golf League (founded 1973)

The League was conceived as an opportunity for local golfers to play competitively against other golf clubs in the local area and at the same time develop camaraderie between them. The intention is to enjoy good golf courses with sporting companions in a friendly but competitive atmosphere.

The League was composed of 2 Divisions from the outset but the Cup competition was not introduced until 1980. Initially, the League was based on singles matches in the A Division and the first Secretary was A L Davidson (Saddleworth GC). In those early years, the league was less competitive and League Tables were not produced until the last match of the season had been played! In 1982, Barry Matthews (League Secretary) and Carl Cunnelly (Fixtures Secretary) ran the League on a more organised and formal basis until 2005. In 1991 the end of season Brian Atack Tournament was added to compete for individual and team trophies.

Since 2005, the trio of Saddleworth's John Walsh (chairman), Ashton's Brendan Kennedy (secretary) and Werneth's David Whaley (fixtures secretary) guided the league through an expansion into a four division format with the addition of teams from North Manchester, Blackley, Crompton & Royton and Castle Hawk. The league changed further in 2017 with the introduction of promotion and relegation between the two 'A' divisions and Howard Lawton (North Manchester) took over as League Secretary.
