In the first annual World Golf Awards, Portugal received the awards of World’s Best Destination and Europe’s Best Destination.
These two important distinctions reflect the efforts made to establish Portugal as a leading golf destination.
Portuguese golf resorts offer high quality golf courses and luxury accommodations, providing guests with the best golf experience and competing with the world’s best golf destinations like the United States, Argentina, Australia, South Africa or Malaysia.
The award for “Europe’s best new golf course” was for the North course of the Portuguese resort Quinta do Lago, in Algarve. The mild weather Portugal enjoys all year round is one of the reasons for these awards.
The first edition of the World Golf Awards was held in Conrad Algarve and the second edition is already being put in place. The World Golf Awards are a part of the World Travel Awards, distinguishing the best in travel since 1993, where Conrad Algarve won the World’s Leading Luxury Resort in 2013 and 2014.
