Born in Liverpool long ago we came down to Bromley as my dad ( a marine engineer) was employed by BP in London.
At the local primary school it became apparent that sport was going to be my outlet. Playing soccer for the school then onto Langley Park where I played all sports.
I managed to scrape enough qualifications to stay on at 6 th form. It was here I made the decision to join The Met Police ( The Warren sports club was only a mile away)!
A crazy rollercoaster of a vocation I experienced many traits of human nature and that was just The Cops!
Having served at numerous places around London I ended up at Bromley where I was introduced to golf. we could play at most clubs in the area. Shortlands was the closest and friendliest where we could play 9 holes & return in time to book on the overtime!
So began my love for the club . The friendliest golf club where members make everyone welcome. The peoples club.!
I am humbled and proud to be Men’s Captain and look forward to the coming year !
So whether you are a current member, a past member, or someone that is thinking of joining Shortlands, I look forward to seeing you at the club either playing golf or enjoying any one of the many social functions we hold. Have a wonderful 2021
