Alfreton Golf Club Greenkeepers

Alfreton’s golf course is always presented to players in a super condition. It is generally recognised that our greens are some of the best in the county. This is a testament to our Green keeping staff, volunteers and the Head of our Greens Committee Roger Foster.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Andy Ryder as our new Head green keeper. Andy was head keeper at Brailsford Golf Club for 22 years. He is an experienced green keeper with knowledge of how to maintain and advance our course.

David Breedon has also agreed to assist with the course and machinery, 2- 3 days a week. His intimate knowledge of the machinery, the irrigation system and drainage etc will be a boon to the club and give Andy a head start.

Please welcome Andy who started on the 19th July. As well as Dave, he will be working alongside apprentices Harvey Allsop and Reece Jewkes.

Work planned through summer 2021:

  • Greens, feeding, spraying and cutting, (eventually to 3.5mm)
  • Irrigation repairs on 9th
  • Wild flowering for the Beehives beside 9th fairway
  • Fairway cutting.
  • Tee feeding and cutting
  • 8th green redevelopment
