The Women in Golf Awards




The Women in Golf Awards is an annual event celebrating the significant contribution that women, past and present, continue to make to the golf industry.  The event was established by Nicole Wheatley and Ben Blackburn whose combined experience in the golf world led them to identify a need to create a platform that would connect, celebrate and inspire.

The Awards bring together women at all stages of their careers, from every sector, showing the diverse nature of the roles women hold in the industry.  This year’s ceremony will take place on the evening of Thursday 28th November, at Foxhills. Applications for tickets to our 2024 event are open, please see below.
