Captains Blog – August 2022


August came and went with very little rain falling from the sky around Atherstone GC, even the average golfer was getting some great distances due to ground conditions.

I’m not much of a gardener and love this weather because I haven’t got to cut my lawns so often, but the opposite is what Rob and his team need for growth and to make our course look its best.

I definitely don’t envy him and his team with these extraordinary conditions to contend with.

One of the big events to take place during August was our Seniors Open which was really well attended and well organised, congratulations to Mick Ferguson & Phil Challis, can I thank Mick Shakespeare for his role as official starter.
