Head greenkeeper Keith Gray in leaving Driffield Golf Club after more than 40 years. He chats to the Mail's John Nicholson.
Q. You have worked as a greenkeeper for more than 40 years. How did you get into the job?
A. Well, I am a local lad and in 1961 I was looking for a job. In those days almost any job, just to get a start and I was taken on at the golf club.
I wasn't classed as a greenkeeper, I was just a worker on the course under Charlie Websdale who was the head greenkeeper, the professional and steward. There were only two of us with occasional help from a retired chap.
