Welcome back to golf

Welcome back was the sign that greeted golfers back to Retford Golf Club, after the COVID restrictions were lifted on Monday 29th March.
So many golfers have been frustrated over recent months at not being able to play, so much so that they rushed back on the very first day. Every single tee time was booked that day. Everyone was not only pleased to be playing again but they were so glad to meet up with fellow golfers after such a long time away.
The day was kicked off by Mr Captain, Alan Meacher, and his Vice Captain, Mike Mahony, at 6.40am. Sadly, the Lady Captain, Lin Tongue, and her Vice Captain, Mary Saddington, did not manage to get out of bed at that unearthly hour but did play later.
The course looks wonderful after such a long lay-off. Like all of us, the opportunity had been taken during lockdown to tidy the garden areas, undertake a litter pick and repair some of the fencing around the course. The greens and fairways are in wonderful condition, which will help all the golfers get back to their best form.
Let’s hope that they can look forward to a brilliant summer and good golf. What a brilliant way to get exercise.
