Ellie Perks August Hero Handshake Winner

Hero's Handshake

The Young Ambassadors – supported by the Golf Foundation  and England Golf – have appealed for help from the golfing public to nominate future winners of their ‘Hero’s Handshake’ Award.

The award recognises young people in golf who show commitment and dedication to the game and who help support others by promoting a positive image of the sport.

It is not about winning trophies, but rather a way of thanking those individuals who champion the game. It rewards those golfers who display a positive attitude and generosity of spirit when helping others celebrate even the smallest of achievements.

Nominations for future awards can be made via the Young Ambassadors social media channels on Twitter and Instagram.

To contact the Young Ambassadors via Twitter search for @GolfAmbassadors and discover them on Instagram at ‘getgolfing’.

Ali Jodiyawalla from the Young Ambassadors programme said: “The Hero’s Handshake project has been key in recognising young people in golf who are doing amazing things to help grow the game and highlight the positive impact it can have on people’s lives!

“We hope it tells young golfers that we value not only the winners, but also the role models in golf that are showing how fun the sport can be for young people of all backgrounds.

“Now we need the help of club pros and golf club members to help us identify the next group of heroes.”
