Congratulations to all our fantastic award winners recognised at the 2022 AKH Prize Giving on Friday night!
Hosted at Akarana Golf Club, with our first prize giving since 2019 due to the pandemic, we were able to celebrate our representative players, teams, coaches, managers, umpires, officials, volunteers and clubs.
We were also able to recognise the selfless service of some of our clubs most long serving stalwarts via our AKH Service Awards.
We also look forward to announcing several other deserving 2022 Service Award recipients who were unable to attend the event. We will be recognising them with their clubs during the winter season next year.
Congratulations once again to all of our award winners and service award recipients, and thank you for your outstanding contributions!
