Norfolk golfer marks 80 years playing the same course

It's quite an achievement to be playing your favourite sport for eight decades and even more of a feat to do so with the same club.

Geoffrey Crosskill joined Eaton Golf Club in Norwich five years before the Second World War. He was twelve at the time, but Geoffrey is still going strong well into his nineties.

The course was barely twenty years old when he struck his first tee shot. He was introduced to golf by his dad Alec, a former club captain and his first trophy, as a junior, came five years later.
