A look back at our at archive: Fresh air and sporting exercise in this selection of golfing-related photos
As the days lengthen our thoughts turn this week to fresh air and sporting exercise in this selection of golfing-related photos from our archives.
Golfers and spectators appraise a shot during the East Anglian Championships in the 1950s (1).
A taste for the sport has to start somewhere, perhaps on Yarmouth seafront, where a group of children are photographed taking part in a game of crazy golf in the late 1950s (2).
Caister was the venue for the Norfolk Golf Championships in May 1953, though we have no further details about this picture (3).
In our fourth photo from July 1953 Mrs C. Crowe, captain of Gorleston Ladies' Golf Club, drives off from the first tee in a match between the club and a team of artists from the town's summer shows. Behind her, with a glass in his hand, is Bruce Forsyth, a stalwart of summer seasons in the 1950s (4).
Another well-attended championship took place at Caister in the early 1960s. The appreciative crowd includes a number of schoolchildren (5).
Celebrity golfers and stars of Yarmouth summer season lined up for our camera in 1961. Included in the group are Bruce Forsyth, Arthur Haynes, Frankie Howerd and Bob Monkhouse (6).

In March 1962 a university golf match was played at Hunstanton; Ian Elliott, former president of Oxford's boat race crew, is seen putting on the eighth green. (7).
In May of that year there was a larger than usual bunker at the Royal Cromer Golf Club when a cliff fall further eroded the edge of the course (8).
A series on golfing personalities led to Roger Trower being photographed in action at the Amateur Championships at Caister in 1965 (9).
