Historic night in Manchester as England Golf turns 100!

Tuesday 13 February was a historic night for England Golf, as the governing body celebrated its 100th anniversary with the Centenary Dinner & Awards at the very place it was born – The Midland Manchester Hotel.

And, as part of the celebrations, 11 different awards were handed out while 12 names were also inducted into an all-new England Golf Hall of Fame.

Hosted by former golf star and Sky Sports presenter, Nick Dougherty, The Midland Manchester Hotel welcomed 450 guests and recognised heroes from across the country who have gone above and beyond to make the game of golf what it is today.

There were 11 category winners announced each with a unique story to tell, while nine of those categories were nominated for by the public, before 46 judges from the golf industry and golf media examined the nominations to whittle them down to one winner per category.

The nominees for the Tournament Venue of the Year and Performance of the Year category were put forward and then judged by staff in the England Golf championships and performance departments respectively.

Each award winner received an engraved glass trophy and a gift hamper to mark their amazing achievements.

This year’s awards saw the inaugural England Golf Hall of Fame inductees named, as picked by the England Golf Centenary Committee.

England Golf CEO, Jeremy Tomlinson, said: "What a night it was at The Midland Manchester, not just in celebrating 100 years of England Golf and the Rose, but in continuing to recognise the amazing people across the game today, who make it what it is.

"We received many fantastic nominations for clubs, volunteers and individuals across the country and we'd like to congratulate all of our finalists, and of course, our winners.

S2F were pleased to be trusted to organise this significant event for England Golf. This included all aspects of the event from awards entries, judging, event website, ticket sales, AV and host liaison to onsite delivery.
