Craig Cameron

Craig is leaving us to take on a fabulous job as Head Greenkeeper at Golf Club St Leon-Rot in Germany.  The club has two 18 hole championship courses, a nine hole course and a children's course.  Craig will have a greenkeeping staff of 28 to manage the courses and machinery and facilities that most greenkeepers can only dream of.  The club is one of the very best in Germany and is hosting the Solheim cup in September, it has also been the venue for the German open four times.

Craig has worked extremely hard to reach this point in his career and thoroughly deserves this opportunity.  He's been a great asset to Aldeburgh Golf Club over the last six years and we'll miss him.  We wish him all the best and will follow his ongoing career with interest.

Here's a photo of the course - quite a contrast to Aldeburgh!
