After 43 years of looking after the greens and fairways of Driffield Golf Club, head greenkeeper Keith Gray has retired, handing over the reigns to Andy Anderson
Keith, 65, wasn't just a greenkeeper, he was also the key figure behind the extension from 9 to 18 holes back in the mid-1980's. He designed and built the extra holes, which he picks out as the highlight of his working life.
The head greenkeeper first took on a job with the club when still a teenager. Keith said: "When I was 17 I lost a job at Sellars in Ruston Parva and I was off work for a week when I saw this job come up, I had an interview and I managed to get the job."
