A new event, the World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world class courses and golf destinations.
The inaugural event focused on the leading 130 nations that are shaping the future of the dynamic industry. While celebrating and rewarding excellence across golf resorts, courses and the golfing destinations throughout the world, World Golf Awards will strive to ultimately raise the golf tourist customer experience and stimulate both the domestic and international golf tourism market.
