"This young lady has been with us from the start of the year, she has attended the most training days, club Sunday comps and regional competitions for 2017," Ms Stowers said.

"She has a fire in her belly and does not like to ever miss training or a game of golf."

She commended Lydia Schackell, who received the Best Putting Award and Boston Jackson who won the Handicap Reduction Award

"With an 83.3percent reduction in his handicap this year, this young man started in June on three holes after his three rounds he had a handicap of 15," she said.

"By the start of October he was promoted to six holes with a handicap of 17 and by the end of this year he is down to 13.

"Matthew Sinn won the encouragement Award, having only started playing Sunday comps in June, for a young man of not many words he has begun to feel more confident and comfortable to speak in front of everyone."

Ms Stowers said Travis Taylor was the Most Improved Player - the only person in the top five for all our points categories.

"Performance, handicap reduction, NTP, putting, attendance and golfer of the year," she said.

Golfer of the Year went to Zane Stowers, who regularly attended competition days and training.

"He regularly performs to a high standard and was the most consistent in playing to or better than their handicap," Ms Stowers said.
