NSW’S Oaks Cy­press Lakes Re­sort has been named Aus­tralia’s Best Golf Ho­tel for 2018 at the fifth An­nual World Golf Awards for the se­cond con­sec­u­tive year.

An­nounced at a gala cer­e­mony in Spain re­cently, the in­ter­na­tional awards pro­gram serves to ac­knowl­edge and cel­e­brate ex­cel­lence in golf across a range of cat­e­gories on a global scale.

Voted on by re­spected golf in­dus­try ex­perts and tourism au­thor­i­ties, the pop­u­lar Hunter Val­ley prop­erty claimed the win af­ter com­pet­ing against an im­pres­sive line-up of world-class golf­ing des­ti­na­tions from across the coun­try.

“On be­half of the team at Oaks Cy­press Lakes Re­sort, I’m ex­cep­tion­ally proud of this achieve­ment and the hard work that has gone into se­cur­ing this award for a se­cond year run­ning,” Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer of Mi­nor Ho­tels – Aus­tralia and New Zealand, Craig Hoo­ley, said.

“The re­sort’s strong golf of­fer­ing con­tin­ues to ap­peal to a broad range of do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets; not only is the course it­self award-win­ning, but it also presents as an iconic Aus­tralian golf­ing des­ti­na­tion that of­fers vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to play against a stun­ning back­drop of un­du­lat­ing vine­yards and na­tive hin­ter­land.”

While the course has en­joyed a rich 25-year his­tory as a Hunter Val­ley icon, it’s also ex­pe­ri­enced sub­stan­tial up­grades and im­prove­ments dur­ing the past five years since be­ing ac­quired by Mi­nor Ho­tels.

Lo­cated just two hours’ drive north of Syd­ney, Oaks Cy­press Lakes Re­sort boasts 136 vil­las in a range of one-, two- and three­bed­room con­fig­u­ra­tions, many of which have un­der­gone a re­ju­ve­na­tion. It fea­tures three swim­ming pools, ten­nis courts, two restau­rants and bars, a well-equipped gym­na­sium, and seven ver­sa­tile func­tion venues.
