World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses and golf destinations.
These inaugural awards are focused on the leading 130 nations who are shaping the future of this dynamic industry.
Golf tourism constitutes a vital segment in the global travel and tourism marketplace. An estimated 600 million golfer visits will take place in 2014 to the 32,000 golf courses and resorts worldwide.
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.
The worldwide voting process began in May. Votes were made by professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry – senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals, as well as the golf tourism consumers.
