Welcome to Alex Roberts. our new Head Greenkeeper, starting at Alfreton next Monday, (16th December). He is a local man, living Swanwick and we asked him for some details of who he is and what he likes, he says:

“I am delighted to be appointed as Head Greenkeeper at Alfreton Golf Club. I have been green keeping for 10 years now, starting my career at Shirland Golf Club, working my way up to Head Greenkeeper. In 2016 I joined Horsley Lodge as Deputy Head Greenkeeper.

I am a proactive motivated individual who is determined to achieve. I currently hold an NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 diploma in sports turf, spraying licences, chainsaw licences and first aid at work. I am currently studying towards a foundation degree in sports turf management, and I am an ambassador and scholar for the R&A.

I am a family man that loves spending time with my daughter and fiancé. In my spare time I enjoy a round of golf and am a season ticket holder at Derby County”

We all welcome Alex and look forward to his time at our Club.
