March Golf Club is sad to announce the death of Keith Threadgold. At the time of his death, Keith was the Club's Handicap Secretary, a duty that, typically, he carried-out with fair, efficient precision and with a high degree of thoroughness.
Both Keith and his wife Carol had been members of the Club for many years and had also been members of Burleigh Park GC. His knowledge of the past history of MGC enabled him to impart pragmatic guidance and support. He will be hugely missed and our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family.
