Greens Committee- John Buxton

“… many clubs there is often one brave soul who will battle on as Chairman until he tires of the yearly abuse thrown in his direction by impatient golfers. His thankless task includes attempting to protect his green staff from the more belligerent members, and fighting in General Committee for sufficient funds with which to manage a course”
Quote from the R&A discussion document “The Way Forward”

Greens Committee members

* John Buxton – Chairman
* Rob Hugill
* Steve Hugill
* Dave Newton

General Duties

The role of the Chairman of Greens is to liaise and work closely with our Head Greenkeeper Ron Butler, to maintain and develop the golf course to the satisfaction of the club membership.

The sub-committee’s purpose is to retain and improve the quality of the golf course to ensure it achieves excellent playing conditions for the use and enjoyment by the members, visitors and guests all year round.

With a low handicap index myself, I know the importance of having excellent greens and a quality course to play.
We meet regularly with the Head Greenkeeper with the majority held on the course so that current conditions and problems can be viewed and discussed. We plan for course maintenance and improvements all year round.
We also listen to the members to hear their thoughts and suggestions and report back to the main committee for discussion, because without members we wouldn’t be here today.

So please enjoy the course, enjoy your golf and don’t forget to repair your divots and pitchmarks!!
