Rabbits

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

The AGM is now a distant memory and a new Captain Malcom Milner,  and an old President Terry Durham, are now in office and we are all set for a new season of golf and social activities.

To date we have had a great response to our request for players to take part in matches. We now have all the players we need for the competitive matches, however more players are still required for the friendly matches. The lists are now posted on the Rabbits Notice Board, so please add your name for an enjoyable afternoon of golf.

Also on the notice board is the list for the Captain's Trip to Pike Hills Golf Club, so again, if you wish to have a great day of golf add your name as soon as possible. 

Although some competitions have been postponed due to the weather, others have already started, so best of luck to all those taking part.

 On the social side the first event is the Grand National Night on Sat 14th April, so come along and see if you can win a few bob!!!

 

I hope you all are successful with your golf this year , but above all enjoy.

 
Regards

Malcolm

Rabbits Friendly Matches

Friendly matches take place, home and away, against seven other clubs in the district through the summer. This offers the opportunity to play on some other great golf courses around the area, meet fellow Rabbit golfers, and enjoy a meal afterwards, all for around £11/£12.

The clubs we will be playing in 2018 are listed below, dates are listed in the Rabbits Handbook. 

  • Garforth 

  • Otley

  • Knaresborough

  • Leeds Cobble Hall

  • Headingley

  • Moor Allerton

  • Scarthingwell

  • Bradford

May I wish both old and new members, the best of luck in your matches. Remember, be competitive and enjoy the experience. 
Best of luck

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

Grand National Race Night
A big thank you to all who supported the Race night, whether you helped on the night, sponsored races, purchased horses/jockeys, prepaid for tickets, turned up on the night or had a bet. Special thanks go to the Pros and Office for managing the sale of the tickets, Kevin Hill our MC and his wife Sally. We had 120 in attendance and everyone appeared to enjoy themselves. The gross surplus was £1,276 and we donated £400 of that to the local Marie Curie Care.
