WELL, after seven long weeks we’re finally back golfing in England, with most Welsh clubs set to follow from Monday.
In Shropshire, Oswestry Golf Club were delighted to be able to welcome golfers back to their club today, following the Coronavirus shutdown. The course has been maintained over the past few weeks by a skeleton staff who have done a tremendous job, lead by head greenkeeper Gary Barnfield.
A small management team have been working away behind the scenes to ensure they were ready to open up in good time and they have been communicating updates with the members throughout the process.
The club’s secretary, John Evans, said: ‘It is great to finally see golfers back out on the course and we’d just like to thank our members for their patience and support through the shutdown.”
The first pair on the tee at 10.30am today were Eric Gluth and John Gallagher (pictured).
