Seventeen-year-old Shauna Lyons was honoured as Volunteer of the Year at the Wales Golf Awards ceremony held at Celtic Manor earlier this week.

She is Junior Club captain at the Llandudno club and helps to run five junior sessions a week with players ranging from 4-17 years-old.

The ceremony was held in the Samuel Ryder Suite at the 2010 Clubhouse and was sponsored by One Golf Network, a marketing and distribution network for golf clubs.

Lyons said, “I did not expect this, I just do it because I enjoy it, it is one big family where I am so to get recognition shows what I am doing is good and helping golf develop further into the future.

“I started getting into it through my school, you have to do 30 hours through my PE course, so I was looking at golf as somewhere to do that.

“They took me to Robin and he let me do that working with the kids, I did my 30 hours but I did not want to leave. Robin got me into doing more things at my school, Ysgol Dyfffryn Conwy in Llanrwst, and now we are getting more girls involved in sport.”
