ADH Club Car Western Australia Golf Industry Winners Announced

POSTED ON June 5, 2020 @ 1:59 pm

From lounge rooms across Australia, the golf industry has come together to celebrate the achievements of the Western Australia Golf Industry at the 2019 ADH Club Car Western Australian Virtual Industry Awards Night.

Hosted by Kim Felton and Gary Thomas, the Thursday 4 June event acknowledged the triumphs of industry representatives, participants, volunteers and supporters from all over the state.

Conducted via a live broadcast, WA PGA Chairman Rob Farley began the evening by honouring five PGA Trainee Program graduates who have gone on to become full Vocational Members of the PGA of Australia.

Farley wished Ethan Andrews, Michael Lewis, Courtney Martin, Jessica Speechley and Cameron Vale all the best for their careers in golf as they join their peers as full Members of the PGA in 2020.

The ADH Club Car Western Australian Industry Awards Night allowed the WA golf industry to formally recognise the successes of 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Champion and 2019 Greg Norman Medallist, Hannah Green, who was awarded the 2019 Outstanding Golf Achievement Award.

In addition to her two LPGA tournament victories in 2019 and new title as the first Western Australian to win a golf major, Felton and Thomas praised Green’s kindness, compassion and eagerness to give back to the sport in the wake of her most successful year yet.

PGA Life Member Len Thomas joined the illustrious list of winners of the WA Golf Industry Recognition Award for his enormous contribution to golf in WA over the past 60 years.
