Harry Moorhouse was awarded lifetime membership by his local club after notching his personal century.

Grandad Harry Moorhouse stays above par for his age – by playing golf at 100-years-old .

Harry completes nine holes twice a week and says his pastime goes a fairway to keep him fit.

It could also leave him quids in.

This month Eaton Golf Club, in his home city of Norwich, awarded him lifetime membership.

The widower and father-of-two said of the sport he only took up aged 50: “I’ve loved it ever since.”

The ex-textile representative­ has some tips to stay on tee-mendous form: “Think young, keep young, act young, plenty of golf and walking.

“That’s the secret, walking.”

To mark his 100th, Harry filled the clubhouse with family and pals…but did his nine holes first.

“We had a great celebration at the golf club, it was really good.

“We had a beautiful cake and plenty of drink. I got a life membership which was great.”

Harry added: “It’s a great club to play and come socialise and I love it.

Harry only took up the sports in his 50s

“I just do it for the exercise and I play around for fun. I’m not too good but quite a while ago I got down to eight handicap.”

Harry, who has two sons and five grandchildren, has been playing golf since the 1960s when one of his friends encouraged him to have a go.

The widower, whose wife Alma died in 2002, aged 82, no longer has a handicap but says his best was eight when he was in his prime.
