How long is a golf league season?

The length of a golf league can differ for many different reasons. The golf league season could be set by the commissioner as well as the league's members. The season could also differ in length due to the courses that will allow the league. If a course would only allow a league for a certain number of weeks, the league does not have a choice in how long the league season would be. Lastly, the length of the season differs depending on the type of climate that the league is present in. Leagues can differ between 10-52 weeks a year depending on the weather in the area. Most often, golf leagues are between 12-24 weeks long. Many leagues that span a large number of weeks often have a half point in the season that splits it into two and allows for more winners.
