Strawberry Hill Golf Club wins county award for Junior Organiser of the Year

Strawberry Hill Golf Club is delighted to announce that Middlesex Golf has awarded the Junior Organiser of the Year 2017 prize to Margaret Bedford, the organiser of the thriving Junior section of the club.

The award is sponsored by the Noel Johnston Foundation, a charitable trust set up by the European Tour Pro, Andrew "Beef" Johnston, in honour of his father. The trust helps children and young people who might not otherwise have the chance or the support to participate in sport. The winner was announced by "Beef" in a video and presented to Margaret by his brother, James.

This award is special, as Middlesex Golf has recently won the County of the Year accolade by the national body, England Golf. Middlesex Golf has thirty-four associated clubs spread throughout the county.

Margaret is no stranger to winning awards. In 2016 she won national recognition. The Volunteer of the Year award is the highest honour from England Golf, the ruling body of the national game, for club volunteers. In the same year Margaret was presented with a British Empire Medal by Her Majesty the Queen in recognition of her work with young people.

Every weekend the junior section of Strawberry Hill Golf Club has over fifty young players honing their skills. Peter Buchan, Strawberry Hill's PGA professional, coaches the kids through all aspects of the game.

"Margaret makes it fun for all the children who are learning the game," Peter says. "The parents are delighted that their kids can enjoy the game in the friendly and safe environment of Strawberry Hill Golf Club."

"It's amazing to win such an award from Middlesex Golf," Margaret said. "I hope this recognition will help more children to take up the game of golf at Strawberry Hill and throughout the county."
