The Fuller’s London Pride ‘Steward of the Year’ competition has narrowed with the announcement of the four regional winners for 2014.
• Midlands: David Guest of Halesowen Golf Club, Worcestershire
• North: David Prior of Blackley Golf Club, Lancashire
• South East: Samantha Hudson of Swaffham Golf Club, Norfolk
• South West: Kevin Brown of Sherborne Golf Club, Dorset
The national winner will be announced at a celebration lunch at The Counting House, an historic Fuller’s pub in London, on Tuesday, 31 March 2015. The winner will receive a weekend break in London, complete with accommodation for two nights in a Fuller’s Central London Hotel. They will also win advertising space in the local press to promote their golf club.
The competition, now in its eighth edition, is run jointly by England Golf and Fuller’s and aims to identify the golf club steward who provides the most welcoming and enjoyable experience at the 19th hole. Club members, visitors and golf club managers put forward nominations for the 2014 title. These were whittled down to a shortlist of 12 stewards – three from each region – by representatives of England Golf and Fuller’s, with the help of 2013 Stewards of the Year, Simon and Karen Ward of Wilmslow Golf Club, Cheshire.
