After 34 years of loyal service, Jim Ewing volunteered for redundancy and has immediate plans to catch up on a couple of years’ worth of outstanding jobs at home.
At a small gathering of the ’green team’, Course Director Ian Williams reminisced on some of the earlier times, conditions and greens staff who Jim had worked with and thanked him on behalf of the club.
Course Manager Jamie Brooks recognised some of Jim’s unique skills – many of the course yardage marker posts and tee blocks had been his efforts – and his willingness to tackle the grimiest of tasks.
Jim commented that he was happy to be leaving at this time and very complimentary about the quality of the team he had been part of – undoubtedly the best that he’d worked with in all of his years at Walmley.
