Through a greenkeeper’s lens

There are times when being a greenkeeper can be physically and mentally demanding and generally just very hard work. The early rises, the construction work and presenting playing surfaces to exacting standards are part and parcel of the job. Being the Home of Golf, the pressure is also that little bit more intense as golfer’s expectations are so high.

There are, however, days and perks of the job that few professions can offer. At times, being outdoors can be number one, when the weather’s on side. On these occasions, our greenkeepers sometimes take a moment to capture their office in all its glory…
