Golf is back! With England's golf courses reopening today after a lengthy Coronavirus closure, members are getting back in the swing at Melton Mowbray Golf.

The first players excitingly waiting on the first tee to be allowed back to the fairways were members Dave Taylor and Jon Herbert.

The first lady back was Lady Captain Margaret Samways.

The players were welcomed back by club professional Tony Westwood and golf operations Director Dave Bentley.

The players will be met by a well manicured course in excellent condition, maintained throughout the lockdown period with thanks to the excellent greens team.

Clearly it will be a while before golf - and life - as we used to know resumes, but the reopening of England's golf courses as Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Government continue their roadmap out of the latest lockdown is a great start.
