The History of Rabbits Golf
The essence of a golf club is to create a place where members can enjoy playing competitive and social golf in a private environment and to be able to play inter club events such as Team knockouts etc. Representing your club in these events usually meant that you were the lowest handicap or dare I say the best golfer. Golf Clubs like the prestige of having the best players who can win these external events.
This of course means if you are a high handicapped golfer the chances of playing in external competitions is zero.
Did Mr Kitching have this vision of a united fraternity of golfers all with handicaps 16 and over and aged 18 upwards?
Who knows; but it was an excellent idea which in its own way has created probably the largest golf club in the world and one that is still growing.
