I remember a great day playing with Stephen at Worplesdon in The SMS day. He was a very interesting and memorable gent.

Stephen was true gentleman who was a delight to work with over the years.

Such very sad news. Stephen was a true gent and will be a huge loss to the industry. Thoughts to all at SMS and to Lynne and family

David Wells, Motocaddy

A true gentleman and one who I considered a good friend from an early introduction at Hankley Common. Rest In Peace Stephen, you will be greatly missed.

Gary Walmsley, Vacasa Real Estate

Very very sad news. He was an amazing man and a true gentleman – and it’s a huge loss for so many, both from within and outside of the golf industry. R.I.P Stephen and thoughts very much with the family (and SMS team).

Such sad news, but what an incredible man
