The Gus Payne Award - Beadlow Manor GCThe Gus Payne Award is presented to the golf club that donates the most money to the Golf Foundation
This award goes to Andrew Kemp who was determined to help young golfers in his year as Club Captain at Beadlow Manor Golf Club (Bedfordshire) by making the Golf Foundation his nominated charity. With a background in youth work, Andrew bought into the Foundation’s strategic aim of ‘Golf for All’ and its wider benefits for young people. He ran a variety of activities including auctions, raffles and a Duke Box night, raising £4,500 for the charity. Andrew invited the Foundation’s CEO Brendon Pyle to his ‘Captain’s Drive-In’ and proudly introduced him to the club’s junior team that had just won the National Junior Team Championships. Andrew is passionate about helping young people; hopefully his example can inspire more captains to think of the Foundation as one of their nominated charities.
