This section of the club enables members of similar playing ability to meet other members and to play on a regular basis and to play in some friendly matches with other clubs in the area if you choose.
Currently a handicap between 28 and 16 is the norm but this is under review as handicaps are being extended to 54 and we are consulting with other clubs on how we will manage this in interclub matches.
There are informal gatherings on Wednesdays and Fridays for a 1pm tee off throughout the summer, 12am during winter. Generally play in three and fours depending on numbers. Nothing too serious. Everyone welcome.
We are also planning to meet at 6pm to play 9 holes one evening, Details will appear on the Rabbits noticeboard. Again everyone is welcome.
There are a couple of events during the year where we play for trophies. The members are friendly, welcoming and generally have a drink in the bar afterwards.
After a couple of visits you will feel part of the Section.
The Rabbits are affiliated to the Harrogate Area Rabbits Golfer Association HARGA and to North East Region Golf Association, NERGA.
There are approx 8 clubs that we will play this year home and away. We normally put out a team of 12 and play 4 ball better ball match play. The fixture list appears on the noticeboard and if you want and are available to play put your name on the list. Don’t be afraid to participate. These matches are played during the week and have tee times between 3 and 5pm . After the match we gather for a meal in the restaurant for a light hearted gathering with our opponents.
NERGA is a similar format a more competitive game but is played at weekends.
In addition we have two away days where we visit another club. The first is called the Easter Bash to be played at Catterick in March and the second the Rabbits Captain away day. This year the Captains away day will be at Eaglescliffe
The “premium event” is the "Buck Rabbit” Trophy which is a knock-out match-play event for Rabbits that runs through the summer months. Look out for the sign-up, pay your £3 entry fee.
If that’s not enough there is also the Summer and Winter leagues and if you want to play in that it’s only one home and one away game against another club with a partner. Again good social golf.
Lastly we have a mixed match where we are paired with the ladies from the club.
A great time is had by all.
