Farewell to Alex and Seb

Alex and Seb’s final staff photo on the first tee.

Head Greenkeeper Alex Roberts will sadly be leaving Alfreton on the 29th June to pursue an exciting new role as Head Greenkeeper at Morley Hayes Golf Club, we wish him all the best and thank him for all his effort and hard work, and know that he will do an outstanding job.

Alex Roberts – “After a short but very sweet 18 months at Alfreton I am truly sorry to be leaving, but very excited for my new venture. I’ve had a fantastic time, I can not thank my team, and the Members enough for their support, encouragement, hard work and positive feedback during my time here.”

Check out Alex’s final video blog posted at the end of June. It includes many great photos of the course taken during his time at the Club.

Sadly, we would also like to add that our Deputy Head Greenkeeper Sebastian Tysall will also be leaving Alfreton on the 8th July to join Horsley Lodge Golf Club. We would again like to wish Seb all the best and thank him for all his effort and hard work in being a key part in the recent success here at Alfreton, we know he will be a great asset to the greens staff at Horsley Lodge.

Sebastian Tysall – “After over 2 years of working at Alfreton I am deeply sorry to say I will be leaving such a great Club. I have decided to take the decision to further my career and take an opportunity to progress and gain invaluable experience. I sincerley thank everyone at Alfreton for their kind wishes in my new job and I personally would like to thank Alex for all his help, encouragement and guidance in my first Deputy Head role.”

Alfreton Golf Club’s attention will now focus on the appointment of a new Head Greenkeeper along with an Assistant to progress on what has already been achieved over the last couple of years.
