No other caddie master at a famous Golf Club has committed his life to pen and paper.

The result is a fascinating record of the early years of Sunningdale Golf Club and the personalities that were involved in its development, but the book goes a good deal further. It is a study of the social history of golf covering the first three quarters of the twentieth century, a period when the very fabric of society altered, and attitudes and relationships between the employer and the employed, professional and amateur golfers, the male and female of our species also suffered irreversible changes.

The Sunningdale of today bears little similarity to the Club that existed in 1900, and Sheridan was a spectator and commentator on these changes.Sunningdale was, at different times during the twentieth century, the golfing home of the Royal Family, military leaders, eminent businessmen and show business celebrities, well know sportsmen in fields other than golf, and a plethora of greater and lesser aristocrats and landowners, as well as those best known for the quality or mediocrity of their golf.

Sheridan describes in detail his relationships with many of these members as well as his occasional disagreements with successive Club Secretaries to whom he was theoretically responsible. His relationship with The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII and his brother, The Duke of York, later King George VI are particularly illuminating.Sheridan accumulated a great knowledge of golf and golfers and describes some of the great matches of the century, obviously only a few of them taking place at Sunningdale. He knew Bobby Jones and witnessed his great feats at Sunningdale in the qualifying rounds of the 1926 Open Championship, the year in which he won the Open and Amateur championships of the united States and Great Britain- feats that placed Sunningdale on the world golfing map lake no other feat could have done.He was caddie master at Sunningdale from 1910 to 1967, punctuated by his service with the Royal Artillery in the battlefields of France in the First World War.

His portrait was painted by a well know artist and hang in the Royal Academy Exhibition for the year, before finding its resting place in the members bar at Sunningdale, where he became an honorary member: A remarkable life indeed.
