Champion golf volunteers: last chance to vote
The closing date to nominate your volunteering champion is this Friday – 17 December 2010.
An easy-to-follow nomination form is found at www.golfvolunteers.org for all those wishing to reward those excellent volunteers who have helped out at your golf club or community golf project this year.
The England Golf Partnership (EGP) Volunteering Awards take place during the 2011 County Golf Development Conference at the National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire (22-23 February, 2011).
Seven different volunteer categories are available. The winners will be chosen as representative of the body of volunteers who contribute within golf clubs, schools, county golf partnerships, training schemes and many other programmes. Award categories take in age groups (including Under 18), volunteer coaching, those involved in club and county development and lifetime achievers.
The EGP has expanded its volunteer base through a dedicated national strategy. Traditional club volunteers have now been joined by many young leaders, as well as volunteer coaches, PGA professionals who combine volunteer work with their regular coaching, schoolteachers and community sports representatives who all gain satisfaction from helping golfers of all abilities to play golf in our clubs and communities. All of these people can be put forward.
The national volunteering programme is delivered via the England Golf Partnership’s ‘Whole Sport Plan’ for golf and is an integral part of the England Golf Partnership’s vision to ‘Grow the Game’.
