Sheep Acting As Greens Keepers?

News has reached us that while the United Kingdom’s coronavirus lockdown was baaahd for humans who wanted to play a round of golf, it was good for flocks of sheep, as the animals were taking over a golf course!

Check out this flock of sheep roaming free at the Avington Park Golf Course in Winchester
.

There’s about 100 sheep setting up shop on the links, roaming and grazing on grass at the prestigious 32-acre golf course.

The UK was under a strict coronavirus lockdown, and the restrictions barred people from taking hacks on golf courses. But these sheep are making a case as essential workers, because they’re pretty much taking over the role of greens keepers!

This is clearly a cheap option for the Beacon Park Golf Course leaseholders, Serco Leisure Operating Ltd, relying on council employees to maintain some semblance of course maintenance?
