|John Wilson (Sussex) – Services to Golf/Lifetime Achievement (male)
Even at 73 years old John Wilson still maintains a schedule that would alarm many younger volunteers. His commitment and enthusiasm are legendary; John has truly made his mark in English golf over 33 years.
Highlights include a long stint as Sussex County Boys team manager and a 10-year tenure on the EGU Junior Boys Committee. His latest triumph is the popular ‘Tigger Tour’, created with wife Wendy for youngsters aged 7-11, now in its fourth year.
John said: “It is marvellous to receive this accolade but much of what we do is not about the individual. Golf development is a team effort and I’m delighted to have worked with so many people who care about the game.
