Return Of Competition Golf Announced
Competitive golf will return to HHGC on Saturday 4th of July. The first event, the Charity Shield is a pairs event and will also be a last 16 qualifier for the Len Wright Trophy.
We're Playing 18 Holes Again!
From 15th of June HHGC has reverted back to 18 hole golf. Another positive forward step as we slowly return to normality. Booking via BRS is still essential and your booking will be for 18 holes with times blocked out as golfers tee off on the back nine.
Guests Are Welcomed Back To HHGC
HHGC is proud to be working hard to adhere to social distancing guidelines from both the Government and England Golf. From today, guests are welcomed with a member and online payment facilities have been set up to minimise contact where possible.
Introduction of the Putt Buddy
To help minimise contact on the course, HHGC has invested in Putt Buddy technology for each hole. This device allows you to retrieve your ball from the hole using the head of the putter and not your hands. This just part of a package of measures to ensure lots of golf can be played safely over the Summer.
Teeing It Up In Twos Again!
On Wednesday 13th of May the course reopened and golf was back at Hanging Heaton. Many members enjoyed golf in good conditions. the club have worked hard to provide a set of rules which adhere to social distancing measures set out by the Government and England Golf. Play is allowed only with booking through BRS and for 9 hole play only although players can book a second nine holes on the day if there is still availability.
Closed... But In Great Condition
As with all golf courses we are currently closed. However the course is growing nicely and Simon & Danny are doing a great job keeping it in good nick for when we can tee it up again.
