The award ceremony was held in the Algarve, Portugal last Saturday, and saw international leaders in golf hospitality taking the stage to accept their awards. Categories included Best Golf Resort, Best Golf Course, Best Golf Tour Operator, and Best New Golf Course, divided per country and continent.
It is the 2nd year that the World Golf Awards have been held, with the aim to recognize service excellence and outstanding performance in the golf (tourism) industry. World Golf Awards is a niche award run parallel to the World Travel Awards, which has been running for over 20 years. Like with the World Travel Awards votes for the World Golf Awards were made by professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry – senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals. The public (golf tourism consumers) were also invited to vote.
Africa’s Best Golf Course and Africa’s Best Golf Hotel were swept away by the legendary Gary Player Country Club at Sun City and Legend Golf & Safari Resort in the Limpopo respectively. Ernie Els Design was awarded World’s Golf Course Designer of the Year.
