England Golf Awards finalists confirmed

The finalists have been confirmed for the 2024 England Golf Awards, sponsored by FJ.

The awards, which will be presented at the England Golf Centenary Dinner & Awards evening at the Midland Manchester Hotel on Tuesday 13 February, will see 11 winners crowned following their tremendous services to the game in 2023.

Sky Sports presenter and former golfer Nick Dougherty will be hosting the evening and tickets are available to buy now by clicking here.

England Golf Chief Executive Jeremy Tomlinson said: “We’re very much looking forward to a wonderful night to celebrate 100 years of England Golf, with a great opportunity to recognise many of the wonderful volunteers in the game.

“Those who have been nominated for an award should be immensely proud of what they have achieved and while it is always a difficult task for our judging panels, we believe we have some excellent finalists and wonderful winners, as such we look forward to welcoming everyone at the Centenary Dinner.”

Nominations were invited from the public for nine of the categories and an expert panel of 38 judges, comprising England Golf staff as well as key industry and media colleagues, have whittled down the long list of nominations to the remaining finalists.

Below is a list of this year’s finalists. You can find out more about each of the finalists by clicking here.
