King’s Lynn Golf Club have appointed new men’s and ladies captains for the 2016 season.

New ladies captain Maggie Clarkson said: “I consider it to be an honour and privilege to be the lady captain.

“I am so happy to give something back to the sport I love and have got so much pleasure from.”

Taking on the men’s role is Kwai Li.

Originally from Hong Kong, he moved to the UK in 1964 and came to Lynn during the 1970s, working in the catering industry.

He is involved with community voluntary works in West Norfolk, particularly with Chinese communities.

He joined the Lynn club from Middleton Hall 19 years ago and now plays off a handicap of eight.

He said: “I feel tremendous honour that the club have accepted me as captain and deeply privileged.”

His chosen charity is the British Heart Foundation.
