Mayor of Bromley George Taylor took a step back in time when he visited the golf club where he worked as a caddy 45 years ago.

Mr Taylor was the guest of honour at Sundridge Park Golf Club in Garden Road, Bromley, for the ‘drive in’ of the new club captain, David Alldread.

He recalled being 15 and working for George Will who played in the Ryder Cup on many occasions, during the visit on September 26.

He said: “It was wonderful going back - it brought back a lot of memories. In those days there would be about 30 young chaps waiting at 8am on a Saturday or Sunday.

“Working for George was the easiest job I’ve had in my life.

“ I used to hand him a driver then a wedge and that was it. With some of the amateurs you would be in the woods all the time.”

A raffle, coupled with a ‘spot the ball’ competition, raised more than £700 for the captain’s chosen charity for the year, which is the Bromley branch of Multiple Sclerosis.
