The former president of a Pinner golf club has been given a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Middlesex Golf’s former chairman and Grim’s Dyke Golf Club president Ray Andrews began playing golf in 1956. He went on to win the prestigious Daily Telegraph Trophy in 1961 and represented Surrey’s Under 25 team in 1963.

He joined Grim’s Dyke Golf Club in 1995, where he ran the county senior team and the club’s junior section, before becoming director, chairman, and president. Ray also became the County Committee president in 2010, where he was instrumental in the merge with the ladies’ section.

On May 18, at Middlesex Golf Club’s Centenary Dinner in London, Ray was given the much-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.

Speaking to PINNERnews, Ray said: “Golf has been a major part of my life for nearly 70 years, and I have always been intent on trying to put something back into the game.

“To be recognised in the Middlesex Centenary year with this Lifetime Achievement Award is far more than thanks from my colleagues. It is both emotional and humbling.”

A spokesperson for Middlesex Golf said: “Ray gives so much of his time, expertise, knowledge and considerable energy to promote and grow the great game of golf.

“Ray always has a pleasant smile and warm greeting. You leave us in a better place and we are all honoured to have worked alongside you.”
