Rabbits Friendly Matches

The history of the section goes back to 1955 and friendly matches have been played between members of the HHDRGA since that date. Matches are played on mid-week evenings and are followed by a meal and a welcome by the host club captain including the compulsory joke. It provides the opportunity to meet the members of other clubs and to play home and away fixtures. It is the captains choice as to the match format which can vary from playing with visiting golfers as a team or playing against the visitors. Some clubs are played home and away during the year and others played home one year away the next. The fixtures are open to all rabbit members, it is not necessary to be a rabbit section member to take part and all adult male members ( 6 day or 7 day ) with a playing handicap of 16 and above are eligible.

Matches are played mid week evenings with tee times of 4.15 or 4.30. Teams are selected by the Vice Captain and posted on the Rabbits notice board. Members interested in playing should look for the match details on the notice board and enter their names the Vice Captain will then select the team and post it on the notice board prior to the match. It is the intention to give as many members as possible the opportunity to play during the year.

The dress code for the meal in the evening does vary across the clubs involved but for Meltham it is jacket and club tie. In an effort to avoid eating heavy meals in the evening consideration is being given to lighter buffet type meals.

When you consider the green fees for some of the courses we play these fixtures do provide great value for money when the evening meal, raffle and a joke are taken into account.
