Middlesex Annual Dinner and Awards

The inaugural Middlesex Golf Awards took place in the stunning Shannon Suite at the Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington. 270 people attended from 18 affiliated clubs.  Following the successful merger of the Middlesex County Golf Union and the Middlesex Ladies County Golf Association last year, the event was open to both men and women, which was greeted with great enthusiasm from all who attended.

The compere for the evening was comedian, Ian Irving, whose superb delivery kept guests entertained and engaged.  The evening began with presentations for competitions throughout the year. The President of Middlesex Golf, John Penn, presented trophies to the winners of the Pearson Trophy, Presidents Foursomes, Ladies 5-a-side Scratch Knockout and the Middlesex Sixes. Vice President, Diana Williams, was invited to the stage to then present the winners of the Rowse Trophy, Gowland Salver and both men and ladies county champions. 

Enfield, Hampstead, Muswell Hill and Stanmore golf clubs are all celebrating their 125th anniversaries this year and they were presented with a memento in recognition of this fantastic achievement.

Now for the award ceremony. The Awards up for grabs were for Club Steward, Junior Organiser, Golf Club and Life Time Achievement. When the winners were announced, each one was met with applause and appreciation from the audience.  Each winner gave a rousing speech, which received further cheering and applause! In total, 8 individuals and clubs were shortlisted for the awards and the independent panel of judges had a tough task selecting the winners.  All nominees should be proud of their acheivements.  It is hoped that given the excellent response to the awards, next year will see an even greater number of nominations received.

Our thanks must go to the Copthorne Tara Hotel  – the food was excellent as was the service and the setting. Also thanks to James Johnston for the Audio Visual support which turned this into a glamorous and exciting evening.  The feedback from the event has been superb and it appears that guests attending had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We must also thank all sponsors for their support. Details of our sponsors are included below. 

Following its success, we hope that this event will become an annual occasion and grow to be one of the highlights of the golfing year in Middlesex. Information will be announced for 2019 in due course and nominations will be open in early autumn.
