A cut above the rest

Elsham’s very own Head Greenkeeper, Colin Hopper was invited to join an elite team of Greenkeepers tasked with preparing TPC Sawgrass for this years Players Championship.

Speaking from Sawgrass ahead of the Tournament starting, Colin stated that “it really is an amazing place. I can take out of this trip already, what perfection looks like on a golf course. There’s nothing out of place.”

Colin also went on to thank BIGGA and John Deere for the opportunity, before going on to thank Elsham Golf Club for allowing him to take up the opportunity.
