Thank you volunteers

May 22nd, 2015

I would like to take this opportunity to add my congratulations to all the winners of the Golf Foundation Presidents Awards and to include a tribute to everyone, all over the world, who helps to promote and encourage the growth of golf. Golf is a serious business but the work of the volunteers is essential to the future health of the game.
