Harry Curtis (Father) – Golf

Harry’s one real passion in life was golf. He had obviously inherited this interest from his father who was a passionate and very good golfer. He played 18 holes three times a week and retained his enthusiasm for the game right until his dying day. Being a physically strong man, and relatively supple, he hit the ball a long way. He was a single handicapped golfer for most of his golfing days, down to as low as a 4 handicap at times.

The town of Ndola had a beautiful 18-hole course, the premier course of Zambia. The Ndola Golf Club hosted the internationally renowned annual Cock O’ the North Golf tournament which was started in 1953. The tournament over the years attracted such greats as the South Africans Harold Henning, Dennis Hutchinson, Terry Westbrook the English Golfers Bernard Gallagher, Craig de Foy, Sam Terrance, Brain Barnes, Christy O’ Conner, Dai Rees and the Australian Jack Newton.

Harry participated in a number of Cock O’ the North Pro-Am. He was well known throughout the Zambian golfing fraternity. He achieved two holes in one, both on the Ndola Golf Course in 1960 and 1968.
