Our Night at the England Golf Awards, 16th March 2017

We had a fantastic evening at the England Golf Awards at Lords Cricket Ground last week, celebrating the invaluable work and achievements that occur every single day across all aspects of England Golf. Our Activator, Dualle Dabayl, was announced as the runner up in the Young Ambassador of the Year category. Dualle said “I haven’t actually lost, I feel so proud to be nominated as a finalist for this award in front of hundreds of people from the world of golf.  This has been the best day of my life”. Richard Shaw, Founder & Director said “Dualle is an outstanding individual who has the interest of the community in his heart.  He loves people and this comes across in everything he does.  We truly value the diversity that he brings to our team.”   Mandy Jarvis, Operations Director, commented “I was very proud to share the evening with Dualle.  His nomination in itself is a massive achievement, not to mention being runner up!  It is a pleasure to have Dualle on our team – he’s an inspiration.”     Ever the professional, after a busy evening celebrating, Dualle was straight back to work the next day at the Sport Inspired Chobham Academy Games at the Copper Box Arena introducing 240 young people to a range of fun and interactive golf challenges....

Counting down to England Golf Awards

The team at Community Golf are getting very excited for the England Golf Awards this Thursday at Lords.  The event will focus on the amazing work and achievements that take place across all levels of English golf.   We are incredibly proud that our activator Dualle Dabayl has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Young Ambassador of the Year Category and we very much look forward to cheering him on.   Dualle arrived in Croydon, aged 20, to live, study and learn English. Golf was not on his radar but at college he came across the Community Golf team, signed up for Street Golf and became hooked on the fun and social environment. He soon began volunteering widely in golf and also volunteers for a range of other organisations.  He joined our team of Activators in January 2016 and our comprehensive golf activator training programme has helped him to develop his role, initially as a volunteer activator and subsequently be supported with routes into employment.  Dualle became a member of the England Golf Youth Panel in October 2016.  ...
