Voting opens ahead of inaugural World Golf Awards

Nominees at the World Golf Awards, the only global initiative to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence in the golf hospitality industry, have been revealed as voting opens ahead of the inaugural Gala Ceremony.

World Golf Awards 2014 will take place at the Conrad Algarve, Portugal, from November 13th-16th.

Awards will be made across a range of categories during the red carpet event, with leading golf tourism destinations competing for titles including Best Golf Resort, Best Golf Course, Best Golf Tour Operator, and Best New Golf Course.

Take a look at the full list of nominees here.

Chris Frost, managing director, World Golf Awards, said: “We made the decision to launch World Golf Awards in reaction to overwhelming demand from the golf industry for a programme that was fair and transparent.

“As we prepare to open the voting and begin our 2014 search we feel we have created programme with a mission to serve as the definitive benchmark of excellence, and to help to foster a new era of growth in golf tourism.”

“Register now and make your voice heard.”

The presentation of the awards on the Saturday evening will form the centrepiece of a three-day itinerary for the event, allowing guests to enjoy some of the world-class facilities on offer at the famous Quinta do Lago Resort.

Everything from a chauffeur driven airport pick-up, to a full 18-holes of golf on both the Friday and Saturday, with food and beverages supplied, will be included in the weekend package.

Among the highlights will be a chance to play on the newly renovated Quinta do Lago North Course – a challenge for golfers of all standards set in a natural woodland setting of pine, gorse, heather and wild flowers.

The World Golf Classic Golf Competition will be held on the new North Course Quinta do Lago during the day of the Gala Ceremony, Saturday, November 15th.

Having already generated sustained media interest, Bloomburg Businessweek will be on hand to cover the event.

Joachim Hartl, general manager, Conrad Algarve, said: “I am delighted to host the first edition of the World Golf Awards at the Conrad Algarve.

“This event will consolidate the Algarve’s top position as one of the best golf destinations in the world, allowing all participants to experience the state of the art facilities, both from the award winning Conrad Algarve and Quinta do Lago Resort.”

Voting will close on October 2nd.
