Heysham Golf Club Rabbits Section is open to all members with a handicap 18-24. We are an active and friendly group of golfers and anyone can join us. We play a number of friendly matches, home and away over the course of the summer season and our fixture list is listed below. We also have two away days to other club, one in the Spring and one in Autumn.
Friendly matches are usually held late afternoons during the summer months and these are usually followed by a two-course meal. These matches are ideal for new members with higher handicaps to meet other golfers of similar abilities. It is also, of course, for the perennial mid to high handicapper to enjoy good companionship and competitive golf and the perfect vehicle for building up relationships with fellow Rabbits not only at their own club but at the clubs we play regularly against.
The main competitions of the year are the Diamond Trophy and Rabbits Trophy.
The Diamond Trophy was inaugurated in 1994 by Joe Blease and is a competition for Division 3 players contested annually between local clubs; Heysham, Morecambe, Silverdale, Bentham, Casterton and Lansil. Teams of 6 Players compete in a Stableford format with Full Handicap. Team selection is by Qualification of results from selected competitions.
Rabbits Trophy is a drawn matchplay knockout competition over 18 holes followed by a final play-off.
If you wish to join us our notice board is in the Gents locker room.
If you need to know more please contact one of our committee members.
