The NSW Volunteer of the Year Award is designed to recognise contributions made to golf in NSW by hardworking and dedicated individuals at Club, District or State level. 

The majority of NSW’s Golf Clubs and District Associations are significantly assisted by volunteers who contribute their time, knowledge, skills and enthusiasm in a variety of ways and many over long periods of time. These awards are an opportunity to provide recognition of those individuals to the broader golf community.

Clubs and District Associations are encouraged to submit nominations and recognise their volunteers. 


Awards are based on the significance of the contribution of the volunteer.

Areas of contribution may include, but is not limited to:

- Junior golf development
- Adult participation
- Membership initiatives
- Marketing Initiatives
- Administration/Committee involvement
- Golf History & Research
- Rules of Golf
- Course Rating/Handicapping
- Course Maintenance eg: working bees
- Tournament Administration
- General Promotion of the game

Nominees must be or have been a financial member of a Golf NSW affiliated club.
Paid employees of Clubs, Districts and Golf NSW are ineligible to be nominated for an award.
