Green Keepers

Glenn Norris

Glenn started as an apprentice straight from school at the age of 16.  

He is one of four full time green keepers along with his deputy Craig Sisson who has worked at the club since 2008.

‘As head green keeper my focus for Haverhill golf club has been to improve many areas such as presentation and course playability. We have completed many projects on the course which have been great to be a part of.  My key focus has been to improve the greens which I believe is the main part of a golf course, producing quicker greens with better drainage.

My long term plan is to carry on producing a high standard quality course which members are proud of and visitors enjoy.  I am going to introduce a more frequent aeration programme to the fairways making the course more playable all year around. 

The club is now embarking on a new long term bunker improvement project which is to be rolled out over the whole of the course. 

I am very much looking forward to starting this long term project and hope the members and visitors enjoy it once it is finished.
