Golf bodies unite for NSW Industry Awards

Golf’s major representative bodies across the state will join forces to host the inaugural New South Wales Golf Industry Awards this October.

In a show of collaboration, the peak bodies have forgone individual events to create a gala evening which will celebrate the achievements of clubs, professionals, superintendents, managers, volunteers and athletes.

To be held at Curzon Hall, Marsfield on October 22, the night will see Golf NSW, the PGA of Australia (NSW/ACT), Golf Management Australia (NSW), Jack Newton Junior Golf (JNJG), the NSW Golf Course Superintendents Association (NSWGCSA) and the Australian Ladies Professional Golfers (ALPG) recognise the achievements of some of their most outstanding individuals and groups.

Each organisation will manage their award nomination and selection process with nominees and guests congregating to announce the winners.

“It’s great to see the concept come to fruition,” Stuart Fraser, CEO of Golf NSW said.

“We’ve been discussing the concept for a while, and the night will be a great celebration of golf and will showcase how our industry organisations work together.”

Awards to be presented on the night will include:

Club Professional of the Year
Superintendent of the Year
Manager of the Year
Coach of the Year
Club of the Year – (Metropolitan and Country)
Player of the Year
Junior Program of the Year

Invitations and booking forms will be distributed to industry stakeholders in July.
