The prestigious Golf Foundation Presidents’ Awards are now open for entry and the foundation are calling for you to nominate those heroes of grass roots junior golf or high achieving projects.
The charity is in a unique position to recognise the individuals, groups and organisations who deserve special acclaim for helping young people to find their way in the game.
The Presidents’ Awards are staged in May 2014 at Wentworth on the eve of the BMW PGA Championship. Held courtesy of one of the Foundation’s chief supporters, The European Tour, and Wentworth Club, this is a glittering occasion worthy of celebrating the great efforts of an inspirational group of people.
Volunteers of all ages, PGA professionals, teachers, sports development workers, administrators, sport partnerships and local authorities are among those who can be nominated for one of the eight awards; four for individuals and four for projects. The most prestigious is the ‘Sir Henry Cotton Award’ which is for outstanding service in the development of young golfers over a sustained period of time.
The closing date for nominations is 31 January, 2014, and anyone can take part in this process. Nomination forms can be downloaded from the ‘Presidents’ Awards’ page on www.golf-foundation.org.
