Welcome to HARGA 2023
It is a privilege and honour to be HARGA President for the year 2023. Thanks goes to Oakdale Rabbits committee and Oakdale Golf Club for proposing my nomination and to HARGA and its members for accepting.
Congratulations to Dick Toft for his year as President, a hard act to follow.
As we look forward to the 2023 season, HARGA embarks on some new and exciting events for its member clubs with the Spring and Autumn Invitational’s giving more opportunities for members of Rabbit sections to get involved with HARGA competitions and l would encourage you all to get behind and support this initiative.

HARGA Annual Dinner
Forty five rabbit golfers, including Presidents from all the other YRGA Areas as guests, enjoyed an excellent HARGA Annual dinner and awards evening at the Oakdale GC on Friday October 27th. Unfortunately the afternoon play-off matches for the HARGA League and the fun golf event had to be cancelled due to the weather and course conditions which means that some matches and awards will likely be delayed into 2024. Nevertheless everyone was in great spirits for the very tasty three course dinner which included interludes for a challenging quiz and raffle. The after-dinner toasts and speeches were excellent, the highlight being the Oakdale Vice Captain Jamie Letts who provided an entertaining and tongue-in-cheek view of life and times of being a Rabbit golfer with the typical "dig" at "senior" golfers. A huge thanks to the Oakdale Club members and staff and for the outstanding hosting of this event.
Full house at Oakdale GC for the HARGA Dinner with plenty of banter and competitive quizzing!
