The English Golf Union (EGU) and Fuller’s London Pride, the official beer of the EGU are calling on all golfers to assist in their hunt to find that special person who provides exceptional service at their golf club bar.

Following the success of previous years, the race is in full swing to find the club steward or a bar person at the 19th hole who provides the most welcoming and enjoyable experience for golfers, be they members or visitors. Nomination forms have been sent to all EGU clubs and golfers are also being encouraged to vote online at the EGU website. Everyone who nominates a candidate for the award will go into a prize draw to win a case of London Pride and a London Pride rugby shirt.

As many golfers are aware, a great welcome in the clubhouse is one of golf’s many pleasures which is why many have voted in their thousands in past years for those staff behind the bar who really do go out of their way to make their club special.

David Spencer, Brands Marketing Manager for Fuller’s said, “We know there are many ‘unsung’ stewards out there who have the ability to make the golf club experience really memorable by providing fabulous service before and after a round. It’s clear from the comments made by the voting golfers that many stewards genuinely do go that extra mile.”

The winner of the 2010 London Pride EGU Steward of the Year will take home a pair of tickets to a day’s play at a Lords Test Match, complete with accommodation for two nights in a Fuller’s Central London Hotel.

As an extra incentive, each regional winning club will receive a promotional pack, including logos and ‘ready-made’ advertisements highlighting their achievement that they can use in their own marketing literature or on their website. The overall winner will also earn his or her club advertising space, courtesy of Fuller’s London Pride, to promote their special status in local press.

The reigning London Pride EGU Club Steward of the Year is Clive Bailey, steward at Willingcott Valley Golf Club, Devon. Clive made the clubhouse a popular place due to his innovation, dedication and commitment to his club, its members and visitors. As part of the prize, Clive will be involved in the first round of judging for this year’s competition.

Paul Keeling, EGU Club Services Manager added, “The service you get at the club bar can leave a lasting impression. We’re delighted that our partnership with Fuller’s London Pride allows us to recognize and reward that exceptional service.”

The London Pride EGU Steward of the Year is part of a five year deal between Fuller’s and the EGU which supports amateur golf and provides greater recognition to clubs and their members.
