Quinta do Lago has just been named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at the 2016 World Golf Awards. The accolade was announced at the Hotel Conrad Algarve where Quinta do Lago – eight-time host of the Portuguese Open – took the prize for the second year running. The resort has reinvented itself over the last six years with the redesign of its North Course among a number of high-profile changes. This is the fourth World Golf Awards honour secured by Quinta do Lago in the last three years and continues a year of success including its placing as Portugal’s number one golf venue in Golf World magazine’s top 100 European resorts.
Sean Moriarty, chief executive at Quinta do Lago, said: “It’s a great honour and privilege for Quinta do Lago to receive this award. A tremendous amount of hard work has taken place over the last six years on modernising the facilities here and the resort is now reaping the rewards. We’re looking forward to many more exciting times in the years ahead.”
Since its inception, Quinta do Lago has been at the forefront of European golf with three award-winning championship courses and outstanding practice facilities including Europe’s only Paul McGinley Golf Academy and the sole TaylorMade Performance Centre in Southern Europe. With so much on offer at this prestigious resort further – and even greater – success in the future is confidently anticipated.
