Nominate Now for the Golf Foundation's Presidents' Awards

The purpose of the Golf Foundation is to make golf and its benefits available to any young person and to help them 'Start, Learn and Stay' in the sport. The Presidents' Awards exist to acknowledge and reward the achievements of those working to meet these aims.

In May 2016 at the BMW PGA Championship, the eight awards listed below will be presented to individuals, organisations and projects that made a major contribution to helping young people enjoy the benefits of golf.

With the exception of the Sir Henry Cotton Award, nominations should relate primarily to work carried out in 2015.
