Hosted by Brett Ogle, the evening was attended by all the key suppliers to Drummond Golf, Golf Australia officials and Drummond Golf franchisees from stores around Australia.
In presenting the Supplier of the Year award to Paul Roser from American Golf Supplies (PING), Drummond Golf managing director Mark Abeyaratne thanked all suppliers and franchisees for making 2011 such a successful year despite a challenging economic environment.
The nominees for Franchisee of the Year were Cambridge, Cheltenham, Frankston, Osborne Park and Traralgon with the trophy going to Cheltenham and accepted by Gary Oswald.
