Rabbits Section

The Rabbits section welcomes all Horsforth Golf Club members with handicaps from 16 to 28. There is no joining fee. We have an extensive programme of golf and social events throughout the year. The Rabbits aim to support Horsforth Golf Club by making donations from the Rabbits funds to help various projects for the benefit of all club  members. The work of our Committee is to raise funds that support the well-being of members, donate money to the Council to pay for their identified projects as well supporting all our many internal and external golfing competitions. Players pay for their own hospitality  and donate much time and effort to support each social event

Gentlemen Rabbit Golfers

 With the AGM over and a new committee appointed, a new Captain, a new Vice Captain and an old President in position we are all set up for a new season of golf and social activities.

On the playing side you will have noticed the list has gone up for all our friendly matches against other clubs so whatever your ability it is a great way to play members of other clubs. So join in and get your name down and enjoy. Also the list is on the board for the Away Day trip to York which is another great way to play a different course, so again add your name to the list and have a day out.

The various competitions have now started and are under way and the results will be posted on this web page. So keep clicking and keep up to date news.Enjoy your golf.

Leeds & District and Yorkshire Rabbits competitions

These are more competitive than the friendly matches and include individual match play knock outs, league matches and several one day competitions against Rabbit teams from clubs from all over Yorkshire. Again, if you wish to play in any of these matches, you can put your name forward at the Rabbits AGM or look for the list on the Rabbits notice board.

There are Saturday competitions for Rabbits only. These usually run alongside club competitions. We also play for the Watson Cup, a match play knock out competition for the top sixteen Rabbit golfers in the qualifying April Medal
