Derek Knight celebrates 63 years as a member of Southport Old Links Golf Club November 14th, 2013 admin Latest News Latest Sports Shares Comments Derek Knight celebrates 63 years as a member of Southport Old Links Golf Club Southport golfer Derek Knight is celebrating 63 years as a fully paid-up member of Southport Old Links Golf Club this week. The 80-year-old is the longest serving member and still plays golf a few times of a week. Derek was down to single figures for most of his playing career but has since moved up to double. Golf was first played at the Old Links in 1892, before many of the larger and more famous clubs had their first monthly medal or cut the fairways with their horse-drawn mowers for the first time. The present Club was formed in 1926 when a Limited Liability Company was floated to take over the assets of the former Club. Southport Old Links Limited was wound up and de-registered as a company in May 1997. Now it is a member owned Club. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
