Brilliant Algarve facility is crowned ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at 2015 World Golf Awards
Top Portuguese resort, Quinta do Lago, has received global recognition following its recent transformation into one of the world’s leading modern contemporary golf resorts by being named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at the World Golf Awards.
The prestigious sports and lifestyle venue was one of ten destinations to be nominated for the coveted accolade and received the top honour at an awards ceremony at the Conrad Algarve, roughly a two-minute drive from the resort.
Quinta do Lago has invested more than €50million upgrading its sports, leisure and lifestyle facilities as part of a six-year investment program, including the €9.6million redesign of its North Course by American architect Beau Welling with input from Europe’s Ryder Cup-winning captain Paul McGinley.
John Dwyer, chief executive at Quinta do Lago, said: “We’re very proud to have been named the best venue in Europe at such a leading event for the golf industry. This award is deserved recognition for the decision the resort took five years ago to undertake a significant upgrade and modernisation of all its facilities.
“Quinta do Lago is now in a position to offer the most vibrant lifestyle experience to suit every taste in Europe.”
