Retired golf course manager looking forward to lie-in

The retired course manager at Maidenhead Golf Club is looking forward to a lie-in after stepping down from the role.

Chris Mitchell, 62, retired as course manager at the Shoppenhangers Road club last month after 45 years service.

The father-of-two said he'd enjoyed a happy time working for the club and thanked members for their support.

He is now looking forward to indulging his other passions of travelling and motorbikes - and having a lie-in.

He said it had been a constant challenge to keep the course greens and fairways in good condition because of the poor English weather.

Chris, who lives in Courtlands with his wife Jane, said: "I started here as an apprentice and went on to become the club's course manager.

"I'm proud of that. It's quite an achievement."

He joined the club as a 17-year-old apprentice green keeper after answering an advert in the Maidenhead Advertiser in 1968.

The club marked his retirement with a party at the beginning of May.
