Montgomerie Award Winner - Emily Furniss, of Gaudet Luce Golf ClubThe Montgomerie Award is presented to a young volunteer who has helped inspire other young people and this year goes to Emily Furniss, of Gaudet Luce Golf Club, Worcestershire.
Emily joined the coaching academy aged 12 and progressed as both a player and volunteer, offering to help coach and becoming Golf Captain at her Senior School. In 2015, Emily was diagnosed with a tumour in her knee and needed surgery but this only made her more determined; while on crutches she attended Pre County training days and club coaching. Emily has joined the Golf Foundation/England Golf’s Young Ambassadors Group, while she continues to help the junior section at Gaudet Luce and County Girls Coaching.
Emily’s friendly and patient nature ensures young girls always feel welcome. She also volunteers as a Guide for the Blind Golf Association and will be helping out at the England Golf Disability Championships this year.
