This year schools in the league will again be fund-raising for theDarren Clarke Foundation which will be giving money to local cancer charities. Each participating school is asked to raise at least £100 and the pupils who raise the greatest amount of money will be given golf prizes. Last year this included rescue clubs, putters and autographed visors from Darren.
Schools from all over Northern Ireland, controlled and maintained, secondary and grammar have entered teams and regularly play matches against one another. There are eleven sections in the league, schools play one another with the winners of each section progressing to the semi-finals. Pupils playing in the league also receive regular coaching throughout the league season.
