Welcome to all new and past members to a Rabbits Section that prides itself in providing a fun, friendly and competitive playing environment throughout the season.
My name is Emlyn Pickup and I am honoured to be captain of the “Rabbits” section of our great golf club for 2021.
I will be assisted throughout the year by my vice-captain, Steve Moorhouse
I think it is fair to say that in golfing terms 2020 was one to forget and without pondering too much on the subject, the covid pandemic challenged many of us in ways that made golf and its playing of secondary importance.
However, as I write these notes, we appear to have light at the end of what has been a very long tunnel.
Whilst we still have a degree of uncertainty, I think it is incumbent on us all to start thinking about a semblance of normality, all be it a “new normal” and get the golfing part of our lives back.
The opening paragraph states the “mission” of the Rabbits and with this in mind we are hoping to fullfill most of our usual fixtures.
The section runs individual and pairs knockouts, have Triangular matches against clubs such as Bedale, Wike Ridge, Pontefract and Darrington G C. Trophy matches against Scarthingwell, Woodthorpe and Howley Hall. We also have our Open Competition (Saturday 26th June 2021)
Alternatively, ask our friendly pro-shop colleagues who will point you in the right direction.
Finally, my I wish all fellow golfers a very successful season played with pride passion and enjoyment.
