Players 1st had the honor of attending the second Women in Golf Awards, where ten awards were presented to celebrate and recognise outstanding women and initiatives in the golf world. One of the winners, Daisy Starling, was the humble recipient of The Rising Star award, sponsored by Players 1st.
One hundred women and men from across the industry gathered at the second Women in Golf Awards on Tuesday evening. The ceremony held at Walton Heath was the annual celebration of the achievements of women in golf and the initiatives that impact women in the sport.
Amelia Lewis, Players 1st UK Regional Manager, was in attendance for the first time and shared her impression of the event.
One of the night’s many highlights was the presentation of The Rising Star award, sponsored by Players 1st. This new category aimed to honor an upcoming industry professional who deserved recognition for her fantastic efforts in their role and beyond.
The judging panel, composed of seven independent industry leaders, had the unenviable task of selecting a winner from an extremely strong list of nominees. The winner of this inaugural award category went to Daisy Starling of Lydd Golf Club, whose dedication and passion for her role as an assistant greenkeeper made her an incredibly deserving winner.
Amelia Lewis had the pleasure of presenting the award to Daisy Starling during the night and shared some of her story which was submitted as part of her nomination.
As the curtains descended on the eventful evening, the Women in Golf Awards 2023 left a lasting impression, serving as a reminder of the remarkable strides made by women in the golfing world and the unwavering dedication of players, organisers, and sponsors in supporting their journey to success.
