ENGLAND GOLF AWARDS “COUNTY OF THE YEAR 2021 LINCOLNSHIRE"
Lincolnshire’s outstanding work in promoting junior and women’s golf has earned it the title as England Golf’s County of the Year.
The announcement was made at the 2021 England Golf Awards with Lincolnshire coming out on top in a keenly contested category also featuring Gloucestershire, Lancashire and Cornwall.
In 2020, 22 of the Lincolnshire’s 45 clubs signed up to The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter.
The same number of clubs were also awarded HSBC Golf Roots Centre accreditation – highlighting a drive to promote junior golf in the county.
In the past year, the Lincolnshire Ladies’ County Golf Association also amended its title to replace the word ladies with women – a small but significant and modernising touch to reflect the more inclusive, open for all philosophy that the county is keen to portray.
Overall, over 1000 new juniors were introduced to golf in Lincolnshire in 2020 through participation programmes and almost 200 of these youngsters subsequently joined clubs as academy or full members.
The county also formed a new 15-strong junior volunteer team in 2021 – the Lincolnshire Girls Golf Squad – with the junior girls themselves playing a prominent role in shaping the aims and objectives of the group.
In 2021, the county will run five GolfSixes leagues involving 264 juniors 130 of whom are girls.
