England Golf Centenary Dinner and Awards

The England Golf Centenary Dinner and awards evening that took place on Tuesday 13th February were truly fantastic and an honour for me as President to be present and be part of the celebration.

Nick Doherty, former golf star and current Sky Sports presenter, hosted the evening and with England Golf dignitaries gave an insightful commentary on the history of England Golf. It was inspiring to hear about the achievements of everyone in the golfing community.

Among the award recipients were two young ladies from Staffordshire previously highlighted on our website. Maria Tiffany-Thompson of Brocton Hall Golf Club and Ryka Verma of The South Staffordshire Golf Club. Both made the final three for the Young Volunteer of the Year Award. Unfortunately, it was not to be on this occasion. However, they were both winners in their own right. The work they have carried out in promoting golf to young girls and encouraging them to take part in the game is a credit to their love and dedication to the game. Congratulations to them both on their achievements. 

We also witnessed the inaugural England Golf Hall of Fame.  It was a privilege to see Bridget Jackson MBE, of Handsworth Golf Club, inducted and receive her award for a lifetime of dedication to the game as a player and administrator at all levels and rightfully receive applause and appreciation from the floor.

Annette Deeley, President.
