The nominees have all been announced and many of us in the game are now looking forward to the England Golf Awards 2022 sponsored by adidas Golf, on Wednesday, 20 April.
Always an uplifting evening, this year’s virtual ceremony – hosted once again by broadcaster, journalist and avid golfer Naga Munchetty – will take place from 6.30pm, broadcast live on England Golf’s YouTube channel.
Nominations were invited from the public for 10 of the 11 categories, judged by a panel of industry leaders, and including Club, and County of the Year, Diversity and Inclusion Champion, Coach of the Year, Sustainability Project, and Volunteer of the Year.
Again this year the Golf Foundation is delighted to work in association with England Golf to present the title of Young Ambassador of the Year.
The Young Ambassador nominees are:
Isabella Brunskill (Enfield Golf Club, Middlesex);
Eloise Feely (Northamptonshire County Golf Club);
Tilly Garfoot (Spalding/Woodhall Spa Golf Clubs, Lincolnshire);
Kai Williams (Bedford and County Golf Club, Bedfordshire).
Brendon Pyle, Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, said: “I was delighted to be part of the judging panel for the Young Ambassador award and really enjoyed reading about all of the inspirational work being delivered by young people in our sport. These four nominees are superb ambassadors for all that is good in the game, and we wish them the best of luck on the night.”
Meanwhile, our own Stacey McNicholas, Regional Development Officer for the East Midlands and our lead on girls’ golf, has been nominated for the award of Women & Girls’ Trailblazer for her excellent work in golf development in Lincolnshire.
