Greenkeeping Team

A 47 Acre back garden takes a lot of looking after!

Here at Eltham Warren Golf Club we are fortunate to have a very dedicated team of three talented professionals headed up by Course Manager Richard Hopgood.

The James Braid designed course is maintained in top condition throughout the year. It has many interesting features such as strategically placed ponds, ditches, bunkers and rare mature trees, some of which are centuries old.

Richard has been in post for over 25 years having served his apprenticeship at near by Royal Blackheath GC. He is very well supported by his two experienced assistant greenkeepers Ken Thompson & Tom Hubbard. Together they are a friendly focussed team, and have a strong proactive approach to golf course management.

The team have won a nationwide English Nature & STRI Environmental Award, and are very keen to maintain the flora and fauna on and around the course. Plus they have in place a strong woodland management policy.

Richard, Ken & Tom strive to provide the members, guests & visitors a well presented course & ideal playing conditions throughout the year.
