Canterbury Golf is fortunate to have many volunteers that contribute to the organisation. This year three Canterbury Golf Service Awards have been presented.
Kevin received his service award for the valuable contribution he has made as the Canterbury Men's Masters Manager. Kevin has managed the team for five consecutive years from 2015-2019 and is held in high respect by the players. The Men's Masters team have performed very well during this time finishing runners up in 2019.
Pip received her service award for her contribution to both the Canterbury Golf Executive Committee and Age Group Committee. Pip has been on the Executive Committee since 2015 and the Age Group Committee from 2019 and currently still is a valuable member of both these committees.
