Golf Foundation Annual Awards

12.30am 8th June 2007 - People

Junior organisers, volunteers, teachers and PGA professionals all gathered at Wentworth during the BMW PGA Championship for the annual Golf Foundation President’s Awards.

As Justin Rose – who played in events run by the Golf Foundation as a boy – geared up for his title challenge outside, Wentworth’s Ballroom provided a fitting backdrop for the Foundation’s annual ceremony.

A packed crowd of VIP guests heard eight remarkable stories of commitment to grass roots golf as Golf Foundation President Ken Schofield CBE presented the awards.

Mike Round, Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, said, “These are the people who put in all the really hard work. We try to provide the tools they will need, but without their efforts, nothing would happen. All of the progress we have made through 2006 would not have been possible had it not been for the commitment and enthusiasm of the teachers, club volunteers and PGA professionals running junior development programmes at the local level.”

Eight President’s Awards were presented. These were as follows:
