The English Golf Union has got behind Terrain Aeration's Unsung Hero Awards by stepping in to sponsor the Greenkeeping category.
Club Services Manager Paul Keeling commented on the EGU's support, "our members appreciate the dedication and effort needed to maintain a golf course and any awards that set out to recognise this have our full support."
The Unsung Hero Awards, now in their sixth year and backed by long term sponsors Pitchcare in the groundsmanship category, are open to all greenkeepers and groundsmen active in the U.K. and nominated by anyone, (excluding immediate family) connected with the industry.
Judged by representatives of BIGGA the IOG and the STRI, the winners, one greenkeeper and one groundsman will be announced during Harrogate Week and presented with framed certificates, holiday vouchers and cash prizes.
