Spring Invitation Day

19th May: Alfreton Golf Club Spring Invitation Day was a great success. Under constant sunshine, golfers arrived and played from early morning through to the end of the day. The course had been excellently prepared by the Greenstaff and volunteers to present it in a perfect condition and provide a true test of golf.

Captain Dereck Martin had called upon many willing helpers to make the day a fabulous and enjoyable event. Thanks go to the Ladies section for the half way house support, Professional Nev Hallam for all his assistance plus as Dereck said in his presentation speech; “all the ‘others’ too numerous to mention”.

Our Caterers provided a full range of meals from breakfast cobs first thing through to a three course meal in two sittings after the close of play. Thanks to Steve Slater and all the staff for their service and hard work too.

During the two sittings Captain Dereck, ably assisted by Vice Captain, Peter Labas awarded the prizes.

The winners were:
1st : Sean King and Darren Brooks (46pts)
2nd : Pete Labas and Steve Butt (44pts)
3rd : John Bennett and George Downes (42pts)
4th : Stu Walters and Rene Talach (41pts)
5th: Dave King and Graham Thorpe (41pts)
6th: Gordon Swain and Dave Breedon (41pts)

It was a great day and fine atmosphere in the club afterwards. Thanks to our members for their support of the Day.
