Visionary of the Year is back for 2022

POSTED ON December 17, 2021 @ 7:31 am

The search has begun for the 2022 Visionary of the Year and some of the golf industry’s heavyweights are excited to hear more stories of positive change around gender equality within the golf community.

One such figure is Australia’s greatest major champion Karrie Webb who recently crowned the 2021 winners Lynley Eadie and Kim Morris from Shepparton Golf Club.

“I think this is an amazing concept”, Webb said. “I thoroughly enjoyed announcing our winners of 2021, Lynley and Kim and I look forward to hearing from many more golf clubs and people in 2022.”

Visionary of the Year stories celebrate, reward and inspire those doing terrific work to achieve gender equality in golf and Golf Australia Chief Executive James Sutherland said the award had uncovered some of the best golfing stories of the year.

“The Visionary of the Year award is an absolute winner,” he said. “The people who we’ve seen nominated for this award – and many others around the country – are doing amazing work for golf. We’ve seen some outstanding success stories already and we’ve highlighted those through the award.

“We look forward to it getting bigger and better in 2022 as we pursue our strategic philosophy that golf is a fun sport for all – and all of us can be golfers.”

Nominations highlight a variety of ways to engage women and girls in the game, from culture and leadership, grassroots participation, marketing and positioning and high performance and coaching, and everyone is invited to submit their entries.

Throughout 2022, nine nominations will be recognised as Visionary of the Month and awarded a $500 online voucher from Drummond Golf, along with having their story told by Golf Australia in a case study format on golf.org.au.

The 2022 Visionary of the Year will win up to $10,000 worth of products from the latest Callaway REVA product range – designed specifically for women’s golf.

The winner (plus finalists) will also have a talented network of photographers, writers and directors create video content to tell their story.
