Officially Amazing

June 8th, 2016

Here is a story that confirms the fitness and social benefits of playing golf. Norfolk golfer Geoffrey Crosskill has just set a new Guinness World Record as the longest serving golf club member. Geoffrey, 94, joined Eaton Golf Club, Norwich, in 1934 and had been a member continuously for 82 years and 18 days when his record was certified.

But, and this is the really amazing point, Geoffrey isn’t the oldest regular golfer at Eaton. That honour goes to Harry Moorhouse, who will be 99 on 7 July.
