 Hillside Golf Club turn down Steven

Steven Gerrard has had a membership application rejected by a golf club in Southport for fear he would bring ‘shame' to their prestigious name, according to The Sun newspaper.
The former England captain had been recommended by Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen, who are both members, but the Hillside Golf Club, Lancashire rejected his application due to his off the pitch behaviour.
Gerrard contacted the £150-per-game visitors' green fee golf club back in 2013 but was caught up in a street scuffle two months afterwards.
A source of The Sun said: “They’re worried he’ll damage the club’s reputation. Apparently they viewed the footage and decided he couldn’t become a Hillside member.”
It is reported that this is the first time Dalglish has recommended someone to be a member and the source said that the Scot is furious with the club’s decision.
“Kenny was fuming after Steve was blackballed. Nobody expected he’d be rejected,” the source added.
Despite being cleared of any charges against him, it appears the Hillside Golf Club powers-that-be haven’t forgotten the bust-up as their membership committee made the decision last week to turn down the 35-year-old Gerrard's application.
