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 also to the recently retired Head of our Greens Committee Roger Foster.

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

David Breedon assists with the course and machinery, 2- 3 days a week. His intimate knowledge of the machinery, the irrigation system and drainage etc is a boon to the club.

Please now also welcome new green keeper Rob Brooks who has joined us. As well as Dave, he will be working alongside our apprentice Reece Jewkes.
