Remarkable finalists shortlisted for England Golf Awards

A shortlist of remarkable finalists has been announced for the England Golf Awards 2019, sponsored by adidas Golf.


They’re the heroes of the game in England and they’ll be celebrated at the awards dinner at the Royal Lancaster London on Thursday, 21 March, when the winners will be revealed. 


Nick Pink, England Golf Chief Executive, said: “A very big thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate and to the judges, who had an incredibly difficult job to produce this shortlist of amazing volunteers, players, clubs and counties. 

“They all contribute so much to the sport that we all love and we look forward to telling their stories over the coming weeks, as we build up to our gala dinner.

“Their contribution to golf in England is immeasurable and they really do make the game great.”
