“We’re looking forward to a great night and to blowing the trumpet for golf in England. The stories of our award winners, whether they’re grass roots golfers or leading Tour players, are truly inspirational and we can’t wait to share them.”

Awards will include the Team of the Year, the Players of the Year, the winners of Lifetime Achievement and Lifetime Service Awards and the England Golf Order of Merit winners.
