The clock is ticking for nominations to be made for the GCMA Manager of the Year Awards.

You must get your proposals in by Friday, September 17 if they are to be considered for the most prestigious prizes in golf club management.

The GCMA Manager of the Year Awards are the centrepiece of the second day of GCMA 2021 Conference, which is being held at Wyboston Lakes Resort, in Bedfordshire, from November 21 to 23.

They will reward the very best succesess in our industry and we’re sure to hear some inspirational stories following the challenges of the last 18 months.

Two years ago at De Vere Cotswold Water Park, Enville general manager Heather Mulley claimed the Manager of the Year prize, while Redditch’s Kerry Alligan-Smith was Newcomer of the Year and Llanishen were Team of the Year.
