Algarve elected Best Golf Destination in the World 2020
"Portugal’s Algarve region has been voted the Best Golf Destination in the World 2020. The award was handed out on Saturday at a gala dinner in Marrakech organised by the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM). This year just one award was given following a vote from around 700 golf tour operators from 64 countries worldwide. The international recognition elected the Portuguese holiday region because it was “an exceptional destination which placed and places the experience of golf playing visitors at the top of the agenda.” According to the Portuguese National Golf Industry Council (CNIG) which represents the main players in the sector in Portugal, this award “once again puts the spotlight on the Algarve region, its golf companies and golf courses/resorts for the excellence of its golf tourism products at a European and international level and represents a well-deserved recognition for all those who work in the region’s golf industry in particular and tourism in general.” It also validates the decisive importance of investments that have been made to improve the quality of the golf courses and the services provided to golfers and the efforts that companies and the sector in the Algarve have made to be more competitive, providing an excellent product for all international golf demand segments with air travel packages, accommodation and gold and complementary services that are more attractive than those offered by competitors."
