Organizer of World Golf Awards,the most prestigious awards programme in the golf tourism industry,has announced return of the event to Conrad Algarve, the most modern five-star hotel in Portugal.
World Golf Awards will return to the resort for the third consecutive year on November 11th-13th.
Attendees will be welcomed to the luxurious hotel on Thursday, November 10th, with a round of golf on one of the three championship golf courses at Quinta do Lago on Friday, November 11th.
A networking dinner will follow in the evening, before the Third Annual World Golf Awards Classic competition on the morning of Saturday, November 12th.
In the evening, the unveiling of the World Golf Awards will form the centrepiece of the itinerary, before guests depart on Sunday, November 13th.
World Golf Awards Managing Director Chris Frost said: “It is an honour to be returning to the Conrad Algarve in southern Portugal for our third Gala Ceremony. The hotel was instrumental in the success of the inaugural World Golf Awards in 2014, while last year saw the ceremony rise to the next level of achievement.
“The Algarve remains the centre of the golfing world, and it was no surprise when Portugal took the title of World’s Best Golf Destination for the second year in succession in 2015. With voting set to open in just a few days it will be down to you, the voters, to decide if the destination is able to hold on to this most prestigious of crowns.”
Event Partner Quinta do Lago will offer World Golf Awards guests a chance to enjoy its three award-winning championship golf courses – the South Course, Laranjal, and the North Course, which was co-designed by Beau Welling and European Ryder Cup-winning captain Paul McGinley.
Each has been expertly designed to complement its natural surroundings, while offering its own set of unique challenges. Wide lakes, undulating fairways and strategic bunkers characterize the terrain, along with carefully tended greens, which are considered to be among the best in Portugal.
"The Conrad Algarve is extremely proud to be hosting the World Golf Awards Gala Ceremony for the third consecutive year,” said Conrad Algarve General Manager Joachim Hartl.
"It was a pleasure to be part of the first two editions of such a prestigious event in which Portugal was inclusively awarded as the World’s Best Golf Destination, a relevant recognition for golf and the hospitality industry in particular for the Algarve region as one of the leading golf destinations.
