Tallest 4-Ball at Hanging Heaton?

A recent Wednesday Lads grouping must surely be the tallest 4 Ball to ever have played at Hanging Heaton when Dave Dickinson, Richard Clayton and Jordan Peace were all in the same team. All 3 are well over 6 feet tall and as you can see they made their fourth member Steve Halloran feel rather small.

8-15 Success

Congratulations to Chris Smith & James Watt who won the Bradford 8-15 4-Ball Trophy at South Bradford Golf Club

October/November 2022

Supporting Environmental Change at HHGC

The scale of the golf course and the amount of wildlife and landscape features it supports, as well as the resources consumed, mean that we have a considerable environmental responsibility as stewards of the land.
At HHGC we are committed to continuous improvement to deliver a safer and diverse ecology within the golf course. Trees are a major contributor to keeping the equilibrium. With several trees being overly mature and in parts dangerous we had to remove 47 earlier in the year.

 In difficult financial times we built a relationship with the Woodland Trust, gaining a contract for 420 trees, varieties including Oak, Silver & Downy Birches, Rowan, Hazel, Cherries, Crab Apples, Hawthorn, Blackthorn & Dogwood. It is very much hoped that this relationship will continue in the coming years.

We have also purchased a further 300 Hedge variety trees to support the security of the course perimeter and wildlife.

The plantations that will hopefully thrive will also deliver in their smallest way a challenge to global warming, whilst helping reduce our carbon footprint and over time add to the challenge of the golf course.

All 720 trees have been planted with the voluntary support of many of our members. A huge thank you goes out to all those who helped. Below are just a few of those involved.

Steve Halloran Retires As Rabbit's Captain

Here we get the thoughts of retiring Rabbit’s Captain about his year in office.

My term as Rabbit’s Captain ends on the 28th October and it as been a honour and privilege to represent the section as their Captain in 2020.
I would like to mention a few fellow Rabbits and thank them for their input and help.

The first is our out going president Trevor Hooley with his dry wit which will always put a smile on your face.

The second person is Mr Colin Child who works his socks off for the rabbits and has done for many a year. Without his commitment and understanding what would we do?

I would like welcome the new incoming Rabbit’s Captain 2021 Paul Main and his incoming Vice Rabbit’s Captain Neil Bates.  I know these two will do a top class job and are raring to go.  I wish them a good year of rabbits golfing.

My last big thank you is to the members of Hanging Heaton Golf Club who have supported the Rabbits section and myself in anyway.

Steve will now take up the role of Rabbit’s President for 2021.


Steve's Speech Is Here...

Here we get the thoughts of new Captain Steve Farrar about the year ahead both on and off the golf course.


Brian's Speech Is Here...

With the usual events not possible this year we have published the Captain’s Speech online.  Anyone can read the speech in their own time.  Grab yourselves a drink, sit down and read the thoughts of Brian Minto on one of the most eventful years in the 99 year history of the club.


A Warm Welcome To Our New Captain...

Breaking from the tradition of awarding the new Club Captain their green jacket at the presentation evening, outgoing Captain Brian Minto passed the mantle onto Steve Farrar on Thursday evening in the clubhouse.  Even the congratulatory handshake was dropped in favour of a much more 2020 elbow bump!  We wish Steve well in his year as captain.

Brian & Steve

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.
