The Australian Golf Media Awards were created for media professionals who cover Australian golf and golfers in the print, internet, radio, television and photography sections of the Australian Media. Now in their 20th year, the awards have Mr Bruce Baskett a former editor of the Melbourne Herald and a former member of the Australian Press Council as its Chair with a panel made up by representatives from Golf Australia, the PGA of Australia and the Australian Ladies Professional Golf Inc.
