Western Australian Golf Industry Awards finalists announced

POSTED ON March 7, 2020 @ 11:12 am

The Western Australian Golf Industry is pleased to announce the finalists for the upcoming Golf Industry Awards Night to be held at Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre on Friday 20th March 2020.

Represented by the PGA of Australia, GolfWA, Golf Course Superintendents Association of WA and Golf Management Australia (WA), the WA Golf Industry Awards Night acknowledges the achievements the finalists have accomplished throughout 2019.

With more nominations than ever before, it was encouraging to see so many individuals recognised for their tireless efforts in assisting the growth and development of golf within the state of Western Australia. Having all areas of the industry being represented by the governing bodies, the night is truly an evening that is dedicated to personalities that are involved in the game whether it be playing or teaching the game, managing facilities that allow it to be experienced or those that volunteer their time and instill so much of their passion toward assisting where needed.
