Golf clubs from Hertfordshire, Kent, Sussex, Suffolk, Cornwall and Yorkshire will be on tenterhooks until the winner of the England Golf Awards are announced at a ceremony held at Lord’s Cricket Ground on March 16.
Essendon Country Club in Hertfordshire is up against The Point at Polzeath in Cornwall for the GolfMark Club award, while Fynn Valley Golf Club in Suffolk is going head-to-head with Leeds Golf Centre in Yorkshire for the title of Most Welcoming Golf Club.
And there is an all South East tie for the Strongest Community Engagement Award, with Bromley Golf Centre in Kent pitched against Hollingbury Golf Centre in Brighton (main picture). Both venues are operated by Mytime Active – guaranteeing the company a win whatever the outcome of the judges’ final decision.
England Golf chief executive Nick Pink said: “These six finalists are fantastic clubs which put their customers first and help to show that golf is a welcoming sport for all. We look forward to highlighting their great work at the England Golf Awards.”
More finalists in other categories, including top coach, top team, leading player and volunteer of the year, will be announced soon. For tickets to the black tie awards ceremony on March 16, which costs £75pp, visit www.eventbrite.com.
