On Wednesday 20th April, individuals from the amateur world of English golf were honoured in the 2022 England Golf Awards.
Presented by broadcaster and golfer, Naga Munchetty, the Awards also featured appearances from singer and presenter Fleur East, golfing royal Zara Tindall, tennis coach Judy Murray and five-time European Tour winner, Tommy Fleetwood.
Designed to recognise and reward individuals, teams, clubs and counties who have really gone above and beyond in making a positive contribution within the amateur game in England over the past year, the worthy nominees and winners were announced throughout the evening.
In 10 of the 11 categories, nominations were made by the public and a panel of 46 judges comprised of experts from the golf industry, the media and England Golf staff. The nominees for the Performance of the Year category were put forward and then judged by staff in the England Golf performance department

Following the results, England Golf CEO, Jeremy Tomlinson, stated: “It’s occasions like this which make me feel both humbled and proud to be involved with golf in England.
“Our wonderful game can only thrive if volunteers, coaches, club staff and county officials put in countless hours behind the scenes to improve the experience for all golfers. It’s important to shine a light on the work being done by those who do not court publicity, but who deserve to be recognised for their exceptional contributions.
“In England, we are extremely lucky to be blessed with so many incredible people who care so passionately about golf. My thanks go to Naga for presenting and our main sponsors, adidas Golf, as well as Your Golf Travel and our colleagues at the Golf Foundation for helping us stage another successful awards night.
“But most of all I would like to thank our nominees and especially our winners for all they do to make sure amateur and club golf in England remains at the heart of our communities and a vital part of our sporting nation.”
