Fullers london pride logoThe search for the Fuller’s London Pride Steward of the Year has narrowed with the announcement of the four regional winners for 2014.

They are:

  • Midlands: David Guest of Halesowen Golf Club, Worcestershire
  • North: David Prior of Blackley Golf Club, Lancashire
  • South East: Samantha Hudson of Swaffham Golf Club, Norfolk
  • South West: Kevin Brown of Sherborne Golf Club, Dorset

The national winner will be announced at a celebration lunch at The Counting House, an historic Fuller’s pub in London, on Tuesday, 31 March 2015.

Whoever wins the title of London Pride Steward of the Year will receive a weekend break in London, complete with accommodation for two nights in a Fuller’s Central London Hotel. They will also win advertising space in the local press to promote their golf club.

The competition, now in its eighth edition, is run jointly by England Golf and Fuller’s and aims to identify the golf club steward who provides the most welcoming and enjoyable experience at the 19th hole.

Club members, visitors and golf club managers put forward nominations for the 2014 title. These were whittled down to a shortlist of 12 stewards – three from each region – by representatives of England Golf and Fuller’s, with the help of 2013 Stewards of the Year, Simon and Karen Ward of Wilmslow Golf Club, Cheshire.

The shortlisted stewards were all visited personally and the regional winners were selected after the candidates were judged on their level of commitment, innovation and standard of service and presentation, together with that extra special something which sets them apart.

The 12 regional finalists were:

South West

Kevin Brown of Sherborne Golf Club, Dorset

Gemma Tucker of Bath Golf Club, Somerset

North

Will Gill of Otley Golf Club, Yorkshire
