The accolade will be presented at the England Golf Awards 2018, which take place on Thursday, February 22, at The Royal Lancaster, London.

“It will bring the golfing community together to recognise outstanding achievements across the amateur game in England, from grass roots development to elite performance.”

The Club of the Year Award 2018 will go to the country’s stand out club, in recognition of its inspiring, forward-thinking approach.

Barry Dyett, chairman of the Yumax Group, said: “HowDidiDo is proud to sponsor this category of the England Golf Awards. It was a very simple decision for us as HowDidiDo, a major part of the Yumax Group, is working every day with the golfers that are the backbone of the amateur sport in the UK. We believe that the members of the English golf clubs deserve a voice and this award will allow them to tell us what they want from a successful golf club.”
