Head Greenkeeper Jonny Roberts is at the top of his game and he did a fantastic job to get the Preston course in amazing condition. The phenomenal greens were cut and ironed for our players. They were also incredibly fast considering the rain that has fallen. Other courses in the area were underwater but this class green keeper doesn't know the meaning of a 'course closed' sign - brilliant.

'Those Greens were magnificent!' was reported by the Cheshire Senior Captain. Another regular player announced that it was 'The best course I've played in a while'. At the half-way house the superb sausage rolls were the talk of the day!

Registration for today's event was in the driving range academy so I had the pleasure of working alongside Head Pro Andy Greenbank. He was great company and a huge help to me and my players. Thanks to a top, top professional.
