2019 Autumn Invitation Day

31st August: Alfreton Golf Club’s Autumn Invitation Day held on the ‘last’ day of summer?

Sunshine and showers presented the golfers with an additional challenge to that of playing our new ‘black ‘course including the par 5 – twice!. The course looked great thanks to our hard working green staff and volunteers, well done to them all.

Captain Pete Labas and his able Vice; Billy Morrision were busy, out on the Friday evening putting the sponsor boards and were also there from early on the Saturday welcoming guests. Thanks goes to the ladies, working hard at the half way house giving us some great cakes and savouries to keep us going. Well done to professional Nev Hallam for his enthusiastic endeavours too. Caterers Donna and Steve plus all the staff also deserve a mention.
