Parliamentary Golf Group: Annual Dinner

The Annual Charity Dinner for the UK Parliament’s All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf takes place in November each year.

To contact the Group visit www.parliamentary.golf.

The dinner takes place in the House of Lords Terrace marquee and is  attended by Peers and MPs, Group supporters, Stakeholders in the game (including Sky and BBC, the PGA, the R&A, England Golf), and non-Parliamentary Members of the Group.

As well as raising money for golf charities, awards are made on the night to the Parliamentary Golfer of the Year (the Member who has done the most for golf in the past year), and Members of Parliament nominate and vote on an individual who has done some outstanding work over a sustained period to support the game.

The dinner has a guest of honour from the sport, who speaks after dinner.
