David Short

  • PGA Member for 50 years.
  • Began golf at Stoke Rockford Golf Club, Lincolnshire and it has been my life ever since.
  • Following a year at Sleaford Golf Club, when David first turning professional, David moved to the Budock Vean Hotel and Golf Club in Cornwall in 1969, and this introduced him to the golf holiday industry.
  • Whilst always in much demand for teaching, David also played tournaments breaking several course records along the way, but teaching was always his passion.  His last main PGA Tournament was the 1978 PGA Championship at Royal Birkdale, Nick Faldo’s first victory!
  • Professional at Falmouth Golf Club, Cornwall, for 21 years from 1973 to 1994, where in conjunction with one or two hotels David started the Golf Tuition Weeks and ran several golf weeks for the hotels. This led to doing similar overseas in the winter months.
  • David Short Golf developed from the above and commenced full time in 1996. Initially the Golf Schools were at the Staverton Park Hotel in Northamptonshire and in Cornwall during the summer, and in the Costa del Sol in the winter.  These events were initially the core of the Business, with the addition of a handful of golf weeks. These gradually expanded to include the escorted long-haul events, which have now taken place over the past 25 years.
