2016 Sir Henry Cotton Award Winner, David Owen with Sandy Jones

Presidents' Awards

The Golf Foundation Presidents’ Awards celebrate the amazing work of volunteers and professionals in offering their time and commitment to help young people to enjoy all the benefits of golf.

Thanks to support from The European Tour, this annual prize-giving ceremony is held in Wentworth Club’s elegant Ballroom, where a large audience of influential golfing figures gathers to hear the stories of award winners and their projects, which all help to develop the golfers and golf stars of the future.

As a charity the Golf Foundation relies completely on the exceptional efforts of hundreds of junior organisers and ‘young leaders’ who mentor children new to golf, hundreds of PGA Pros who take the game into schools and welcome children back for club coaching, and the many families whose youngsters are discovering the game. In addition, the Foundation has trained a great many enthusiastic teachers who have embraced golf as a sport as part of the school curriculum.

At our 2016 awards friends of junior golf watched as Golf Foundation President Sandy Jones presented the awards, while the charity’s Chairman Stephen Lewis thanked The European Tour and Wentworth Club for staging the event and all the Foundation’s core funders and supporters for backing the charity throughout another year.
