GOLF TOURISM AWARDS
It’s the award season in the global golf travel industry, and there have been two glitzy award ceremonies. In Lake Como, Italy, the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) held their 15th annual golf tourism awards, while in Portugal there was the launch of the World Golf Awards. While IAGTO announced their usual key awards for different regions, the World Golf Awards had winners from every country. To please their hosts, they announced Portugal as the world’s best golf destination! The Conrad Pezula Resort & Spa in Knysna was named South Africa’s best golf hotel, the award for Africa went to the Windsor Hotel & Country Club in Kenya, and the Indian Ocean to Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius.
