Jim Bradbury

Tom: My name is Jim Bradbury. We lived in the sixth house down on the left on the sixth fairway at Millcroft and both my daughters were involved in the Ettikid progam as well as the junior programs at Millcroft. My oldest daughter and Sean were the same age and my youngest and Kevin were the same age. The four of them were inseperable for a number of years. Sean's father and I CO Chaired the administraion of the Junior program under the very adept supervison of Rob DeFranscheco. I still credit Rob with the result of both my daughters receiving golf scholorships in the US which didn't result in professional careers but did result in them getting four year university degree and in fact one coached the North Carolina Women's team and in return had her MBA paid for. I was trying to find a contact for Robert for my daughters and I came across you site. If you have any idea were Robert is now and his contact info my daughters and I would appreciate it. PS I didn't realize that I have listened to you give the starting instructions to the bunch of Wild Croatians every year for the last 3 years. My wife is Croatian and I play every year in the Croation Hamilton Tourn. at your club. Great course.

Tom Vanderlip has been the General Manager at Peninsula Lakes Golf Club since 2003. Prior to this he was the Director of Golf at Copper Creek Golf Club during their first season and a half of operation.

Tom began his golf career at the Tyandaga Municipal Golf Course in Burlington in 1989 until 1992. In 1992 a great opportunity presented itself, so he moved to assist with the opening of new high end equity course called Heron Point Golf Links located just outside of Ancaster. Following six years as an Assistant Professional at Heron Point he became the Head Professional in 1998.

After two great years as the Head Professional at Heron Point, he was given the opportunity to be part of the opening team at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City. Thomas McBroom had been commissioned by ClubLink Corporation to rebuild what was previously known as the Aurora Highlands Golf Course, but would now be a high end private golf club located on Bathurst St that would be renamed King Riding Golf Club.

Born and raised in Burlington Ontario, Tom has been a Golf Professional for over twenty years and has enjoyed every minute of it. He now oversees a staff of more than 100 people and is committed to providing everyone that visits Peninsula Lakes with a fabulous golf or dining experience.

Tom is married and has two beautiful children. His son Jaxon is four years old and has already broken 100 and his daughter Devyn, is seven months old. She will begin working on her golf grip next month. Neither of them will feel any pressure from their father to play golf!
