It is of interest that in 1891 another Maidstone Golf Clubwas formed and still exists today. It is located at East Hampton, New York,and was originally named Maidstone after the Kent town. This is now one of the oldest and most exclusive golf clubs in the United States.Bearsted came into being thanks to the generosity of Sir George Hampson, who made available the original 52 acres of land on which the first nine holes were constructed.A keen golfer, Sir George became the first president of the club and was to be named club captain on no fewer than six occasions.The Bearsted golf course has undergone many changes and improvements over the years, notably in 1923 when the lease of further land allowed the club to enjoy an 18-hole course measuring 5,137 yards.</p><p>7</p></li><li><p>Bearsted Golf Club </p><p>History ContinueDTo mark the occasion, an exhibition match was played between the great Harry Vardon (six times Open Champion) and Mark Seymour, the professional at Cobham. More than 200 people paid to watch the match, which was duly won by Vardon, who was fortified before play began by the consumption of several large whiskeys!Later, in 1979, after the acquisition of Seager Farm, the course was lengthened still further. Designed by Club Professional Bob Henderson, the official opening of the newly-extended course was marked by a match featuring 30 professionals including Max Faulkner, an Open champion, and former junior member Paul Hoad together with 90 amateur players. Then West Ham and England footballer Trevor Brooking was the special guest.This was not Faulkners first visit to enjoy golf at Bearsted. He also played in an exhibition match in 1969 to raise money for Cancer Relief. Bernard Gallagher, Brian Barnes and Nick Job also took part. The club has played host to many exhibition games for charity and Ryder Cup golfers Dai Rees and Peter Alliss were among those to take part in a match in support of the Forces Aid Society in 1965.A feature of Bearsted over the years has been our desire to continue improving both the on-course and off-course experience for members and visitors. Further alterations have brought the course up to its present challenging length of 6,381 yards, par 71.A generous bequest by our neighbour and friend, Kath Seager, allowed us to build the spacious and welcoming clubhouse which is enjoyed by so many. This two-storey building was opened in 2000.</p><p>8</p></li><li><p>Bearsted Golf Club </p><p>The club has been home to some talented young golfers over the years. Trevor Osborn, who had started playing at Bearsted at the age of 7, and won the clubs Junior Cup aged 14, turned professional and enjoyed success Down Under, winning the West Australian Open Golf Championship in 1962.Mandy Langford, another young Bearsted member who had been introduced to the game by her father, Lewis, won the English Girls Championship in 1974 and went on to represent Kent and England Under-19s before turning professional. She won several events during the course of her career before becoming a notable administrator in the womens game.Danielle Masters, who had a strong association with the club as a junior, represented Great Britain and Ireland in the Curtis Cup and one of her sweaters from that event in 2004 is proudly on display in the clubhouse. Danielle went on to turn professional and played on the Ladies European Tour. In addition, Kent and England cricketing legends Godfrey Evans and Leslie Ames, who were resident in Bearsted, showed their all-round sporting prowess by winning several golf competitions in the 1950s.</p><p>9</p></li><li><p>Free delivery on all orders over 20, secure payment through SagePay, we also welcome payments through PayPal, UK Orders are despatched by First Class Recorded Mail</p><p>Club, Corporate, School Ties &amp; Accessories:In a demanding environment we understand that it is essential to offer:</p><p> Market Knowledge Design innovation Excellent customer service Competitive prices</p><p>At Michelsons we offer just that.</p><p>Our sales and design team has experience in both leading designers and private label projects.</p><p>Supplier to Jermyn Street, Savile Row and high street retailers with quality neckwear and accessories.</p><p>Selling a wide range of mens Ties &amp; Accessories: Silk Ties, Polyester Ties, Silk Knitted Ties, Silk Handkerchiefs, Silk Scarves and Evening Wear.</p><p>For further information please email: or call 01795 432 400 to speak with a member of our staff.</p><p></p><p>Michelsons UK</p></li><li><p>Bearsted Golf Club </p><p>BeCoMinG a MeMBerBearsted is a members golf club - wholly owned by the membership, and run by elected members for the members.We currently have memberships available in all categories at Bearsted including Full Golf Membership (seven days) and Weekday (five day) Golf Membership.
