Rockliffe Hall nominated for five golf industry awards

Rockliffe Hall Golf has been shortlisted in five categories of the 59Club Service Excellence Awards.

The annual awards recognise some of the highest-profile and best-loved golf venues across the globe.

Head greenkeeper Jon Wyer is again shortlisted for Greenkeeper of the Year, which he won last year.

Jonny Dye is shortlisted for Golf Retail Manager of the Year; Ben Hunt is in the running for Food and Beverage Manager of the Year; Ashley Freeman is shortlisted for Leading Individual Golf Membership Performance; and the Rockliffe Golf team is up for the coveted title of Golf Operation Team of the Year.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony at The Old Course Hotel, St Andrews, next Wednesday (March 13).

The nominations and ultimate winners are determined by scores collected from an independent visitor panel who evaluate the experience afforded to visiting golfers and prospective members in accordance with 59club’s non-subjective benchmarking criteria.

Each venue is judged on performance in the following areas – sales, service, operations, retail, golf course, food & beverage and management.

Davy Cuthbertson, golf course and estate director at Rockliffe, said: “We have an amazing golf team and exceptional course here at Rockliffe Hall and to be nominated in five categories in the 59club awards is testament to this.

“We’re looking forward to attending the awards ceremony in Scotland next week and hope to return with more well-deserved accolades for The Clubhouse trophy cabinet.”
