The Algarve has been chosen to host the first ever World Golf Awards, an international event launched this year to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world class courses and golf destinations.
The inaugural ceremony for the World Golf Awards will take place from November 14th-16th at the Conrad Algarve in Quinta do Lago, when the three-day sporting extravaganza will welcome industry leaders from around the globe.
Conrad Algarve is one of the most modern five-star hotels in the region and exemplifies all that Quinta do Lago stands for, from the world-class spa to the five restaurants and bars. Quinta do Lago is one of the most desirable places to own property in the Algarve.
The awards ceremony on Saturday November 15th will form the centre-piece of the Awards, when guests will be able to enjoy some of the world-class facilities on offer at Quinta do Lago. Everything from a chauffeur driven airport pick-up, to a full 18-holes of golf on both the Friday and Saturday 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.
Golf resorts, hotels, tour operators and destinations are currently being urged to submit nominations for the inaugural World Golf Awards, with voting set to open on June 20th.
Ahead of the event World Golf Awards, chief executive Chris Frost said: “What better location for us to host our inaugural Gala Ceremony than in the Algarve, one of the finest sports tourism destinations in the world, and what better location than the Conrad Algarve? Open for just over a year, the property has already established itself as an industry leader and it will be an honour for us to welcome our nominees to the hotel in November.”
Quinta do Lago Chief Executive John Dwyer also expressed his support for the event, saying: “It is a very exciting time at Quinta do Lago; significant recent investments have ensured the resort remains the freshest, most family-friendly venue on the Algarve. With a wide range of new packages designed to suit everybody’s requirements and a series of summer events to excite young and old, including the re-launch of our remodelled North Course, there’s never been a better time to visit the resort.”
