SQUARE 181594-Meek-Peter Bath GC -  Greenkeeping winner - Jan.png



We're looking for images that showcase the working lives of those who are responsible for preparing courses for the enjoyment of golfers. Greenkeepers are up early – they often work late – and they always put 100% effort into preparing the golf course. This category is about sharing that hard work and success.

This year's category winner was taken by Peter Meek of Bath Golf Club.

SQUARE 22841-Morrison-Alistair Durness GC - Landscape winner - Dec.png



Golf courses provide some of the most spectacular landscapes to be found anywhere and this category celebrates the wonderful natural world, where greenkeepers are privileged to spend their working lives.

This year's category winner was taken by Alistair Morrison of Durness Golf Club.

SQUARE 185054-Walters-Elliot Robin Hood GC - Wildlife winner - July.png



Peaceful, remote and surrounded by the natural world, it's no surprise that greenkeepers often enjoy close encounters with some spectacular natural wonders. This category celebrates some of the beautiful wildlife that can be found on our golf courses.

This year's category winner was Elliot Walters of Robin Hood Golf Club.


The overall winner of this year’s competition will receive a DJI Mini 2 SE Drone.

The DJI Mini 2 SE is a drone equipped with high definition video and camera capabilities. It is as light as your smartphone, meaning it can be stowed away without any fuss. It can fly and record video six miles away for some truly epic views. A flight time of up to 31 minutes also gives you plenty of chances to nail those aerial shots.

The overall winner will also receive a framed print of their winning photograph.

Category winners will receive a £150 Love2Shop Gift Card that is accepted at over 90 different high-street brands including Argos, Go Outdoors, M&S, Boots, Halfords, Wilko and Currys PC World.
