Ransomes Jacobsen, the Ipswich-based turf maintenance equipment manufacturer, has sponsored a new award recognising outstanding achievements from junior golfers in Suffolk. Introduced by the Suffolk County Golf Partnership, the award is for young golfers who deserve recognition for their achievements over the past 12 months.
Nominations are being sought for any young golfers, male or female, under the age of 15, who are deserving of special recognition. They may have reduced their handicap; helped others within the club; overcome particular difficulties or obstacles; or perhaps achieved success in club competitions. They may not necessarily be the best young golfers at the club.
An individual award will be presented to the winning boy and girl at a prize-giving ceremony at the Suffolk Golf Partnership Golf Day on 22nd July at Halesworth Golf Club. All nominees must have a date of birth on or after 30th June 1994.
Organiser Alastair Spink of the Suffolk County Golf partnership said,"We hope that every club in Suffolk with a Junior Section will be able to nominate at least one member and we look forward to receiving their details. We require a brief description of their achievement in not more than 250 words.
A panel of judges will meet to consider all applications and the winners will be announced in early July. The closing date for entries is 30th June 2009."
For further information or to submit nominations please contact Alastair Spink on 07545 155341 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Greg Spray, Marketing Manager at Ransomes Jacobsen said, "We are obviously delighted to be involved with this splendid award scheme. In an age where youngsters generally receive a bad press, it's great to see their positive achievements being recognised. We applaud Suffolk County Golf Partnership's initiative and would encourage Suffolk's golf clubs to give their every support."
