May I firstly welcome you to the Rabbits Section of Normanton Golf Club.
When I moved to the area some 8 years ago, I decided to take up golf again after a long break of many years. I joined Normanton Golf Club in 2013 and was welcomed into the Rabbits Section shortly afterwards, I found it a great way of meeting new members with the bonus of playing some competitive golf with a great social side to it and have been an active member ever since.
It is a great honour and privilege to be asked to be Captain of the section. If you are a new member to the club, I would encourage you to get involved in the section to play golf in a friendly environment and representing our club in the right manner.
We play numerous competitions throughout the season and your participation would be very much appreciated. There are Rabbits Singles & Pairs knockout competitions from early May which you can enter. Also we have teams, singles and pairs that play in the Heavy Woollen League, Yorkshire, Leeds & District and Wakefield Rabbits Golf Associations competitions.
We have our Open Competitions ( Saturday 30th June & Monday 27th August ) also there is my Captains Away Weekend which this year will be held at Carden Park in Cheshire on 15th – 16th July ( please see Rabbits notice board for details ) which like previous years promises to be another memorable weekend.
The section also makes contributions to our Club Captains Charity through our Open Competitions and make regular contributions to our club.
Finally, I would just like to wish all Rabbit Section members old & new, a great and successful golfing season at one of best courses and friendliest clubs the region.
Have a great 2018 season.
John Snelling, 2018 Rabbits Captain
