Jim Cook has preserved the club's unique find - a golf ball embedded inside the trunk of a tree.
The tree had apparently grown around the ball which had probably been lodged in its branches many years ago.
It was discovered when Richard Mitchell, greens keeper at the Eaton club in Norwich, felled the conifer and cut it into pieces, only to find the ball perfectly encased in the wood.
Club manager Peter Johns said: "It's an incredible find."

Funny discovery!
So, finally I can see how the golf ball looks from inside!
Was always interested, but never had a)tools b)time c)old ball to cut it!
Once I have seen rifle caught in tree, in WWII museum somewhere in
Europe, but it was visible from outside without cutting...Take care
