One of our members is delighted to go round in 100 !



Dan Orr celebrated his 100th birthday on 7th March 2008. Given his birth date, Dan was truly meant to be a member of our Society!

Dan joined us in 2007 when he was a "young lad" of 98 and was an enthusiastic and active member until he died in January 2010, not far short of his 102nd birthday. At the 2008 AGM he held our members in rapt attention as he described his experiences of playing golf in India many years ago.

At the Hickory Open in 2007, Dan came along to watch the golf and at his age, he had the good grace to keep any "tut tutting" at our humble efforts to himself!
