COULD Erewash Valley be named golf club of the year?

Proud Erewash Valley Golf Club has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2016 GolfMark Club Of The Year award.

It was named as one of three finalists, alongside Hinckley Golf Club in Leicestershire and Penrith Golf Club in Cumbria. The winner will be announced at a gala dinner in April.

GolfMark is an initiative created by the sport’s governing body, England Golf, to tempt more people into playing golf and raise standards at clubs. The award, now in its eighth year, recognises clubs that have made an outstanding contribution to developing the game through a range of activities.

England Golf’s head of club support, Abbie Lench, said: “The quality of this year’s 13 nominations was very high.”

If Erewash Valley wins, the club will receive a trophy and a prize from the award’s sponsors, Cobra Puma Golf.
