The courses (18 hole and 6 hole pitch and putt) are maintained by a team of 4 – Alan Smith (Head Greenkeeper), Tony Callan (First Assistant), Trevor Palmer (Assistant) and Craig Stringer (Apprentice). They are a dedicated team and work tirelessly to keep the course in tip-top condition. Alan started as an assistant green keeper in 2004 and was appointed Head Greenkeeper in 2012. He has qualified to NVQ level 4 standard. He is very environmentally friendly and makes every effort to minimise the use of chemicals and pesticides on the course. Tony has been with the club for over 15 years and attained NVQ level 3. Both Trevor and Craig are into their 2nd year of their careers in green-keeping and are leaning fast under the guidance of Alan.With the winter’s getting wetter, great efforts are being made to improve the drainage on many parts of the course. The biggest improvement to date as been on the greens – in fact we were able to play on full greens during the winter of 2013. Since 2014 we make frequent use of a “greens iron” to help us make the greens run true and very quick – beware!
