The winners will be announced in a virtual ceremony on the governing body's YouTube channel on Wednesday, April 20... Shining examples of the best of golf in England have been revealed as the nominees were announced for a prestigious awards evening. The England Golf Awards 2022 will be staged in a virtual ceremony, hosted by broadcaster and avid golfer Naga Munchetty, on England Golf’s YouTube channel. Singer and presenter Fleur East will also have a roving role on the night as gongs are handed out in 11 categories on April 20, from 6.30pm. From Club of the Year, to County of the Year, Diversity and Inclusion Champion, and Tournament Venue of the Year, the Awards will also honour the best Sustainability Project, Women and Girls' Trailblazer and Young Ambassador of the Year among other categories. The awards night puts the spotlight on those individuals and organisations who have promoted a positive image of golf through their accomplishments or their selfless efforts to help others. A panel of 46 judges, made up of England Golf staff as well as industry and media figures, including GCMA chief executive Tom Brooke, whittled down the potential winners from a longlist of nominations. You can see the shortlisted clubs and individuals by visiting the England Golf Awards 2022 website. Considering the overall list of nominees, Jeremy Tomlinson, England Golf chief executive, said: “It was a real privilege to read through so many amazing stories from groups and individuals who go that extra mile to make a difference to the game we all love. “This is a chance to shine a light on those individuals, groups, counties and clubs who don’t seek publicity for the great work they do, but who deserve to be honoured and recognised. “To read about such levels of passion, creativity and dedication being shown by so many from our golfing community is truly inspirational. “I very much look forward to the ceremony and invite all golfers and supporters of the game to come online and join in with a celebration of all that’s good about the club and amateur scene in England.” Do you subscribe to the GCMA's weekly E-newsletter?
