CAVA gets back on course

If you asked Mike last week what he was missing most during lockdown, his answer would certainly have been golf!

But with some lockdown restrictions easing up recently, Mike was one of the first back on the course, enjoying the brilliant weather and getting in some well-deserved practice.

Whilst there are still restrictions in place, the good thing about golfing is that it is non-contact to begin with.

Mike’s course, Greenmount, in Bury, has been a little quieter than expected and new rules state games can only be played in pairs, at a distance. There’s a few ground rules to adhere by too, no bunker rakes can be used and no touching the flag poles!

However, after weeks of not being out on the course, Mike said he felt a sense of normality returning and a sense of purpose. Golf is great for focus, just like cricket, another sport which Mike is a huge fan of.
