The end of an era...
My good friend and colleague Dave Thornton sadly leaves the greenskeepers shed for the last time this Friday 12th December after over 40 years of service.
I've personally enjoyed Dave's company and friendship over the last eight years. He has been a great mentor to me and taught me many 'tricks' of the trade.
He will be missed by all.
Winter Tournament ~ Blackwell Golf Club ~ Wens 3rd December
Nice day at Blackwell Golf Club and thanks to everyone who turned up and joined in. Karl and myself enjoyed your company, the course was in fabulous condition, congratulations to Rhys Thomas, and his team. The Tournament was kindly sponsored by Working Turf and a special thanks to all our sponsors, most important prize when they 'thought it was all over' went to yours truly Harvey Brooke for nearest the pin on the 18th...Ha !!
