General Information:

Golf - Had possibly the first "hole in one" on the old Parklands golf course, playing with T.L. Hately. 'To his great delight ... holed out from the tee at a short hole across the road from where the Petrol station now stands.
Knapman, as all golfers know, is the representative of the KGS at Home and is still as keen on the game as he is in arranging pleasure for others.' [1953]
