Mrs Eileen Waddell celebrated her 100th birthday with her friends at Knock Golf Club last November. It was an appropriate way to mark the milestone as she told us many times “I lived for golf” and she still shows that same enthusiasm at the age of 100!
Eileen joined Knock Golf Club in 1957 and was a member for over 50 years. She was Lady Captain in 1978, an honorary treasurer and also served as honorary secretary for 14 years. Her late husband Bob was a member for 40 years and her son Peter has now been a member for 50 years. Eileen loves to chat about Knock and all the pleasure she enjoyed there over the years with her all her friends and family.
