Autumn Invitation Day

1st September: Alfreton Golf Club Autumn Invitation Day was a great success. Under near constant sunshine again, 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 range of meals from breakfast cobs first thing through to a special curry option throughout the day. Thanks to Donna and Steve Slater and all the staff for their service and hard work too.

Captains Dereck Marin and Ellie Bennett, ably assisted by Vice Captain, Peter Labas awarded the prizes.

The winners were:
1st : Julian Stones and Phil Helliwell (48pts)
2nd : John Bennett and George Downes (47pts)
3rd : Christian Townsend and Richard Ashley  (44pts)
4th : Pete Labas and Steve Butt (44pts)
5th: Steve Nutt and Terry Sutcliffe  (43pts)
