Gong fest at Quinta do Lago

Quinta do Lago is aiming to cap a successful year by claiming a memorable treble when the first World Golf Awards are held at the Portuguese resort later this month. The revamped North Course has been shortlisted as Europe’s Best New Golf Course – one of three awards that the resort is in contention to win. Quinta do Lago’s South Course, host of the Portuguese Open eight times, has been nominated as the Best Golf Course in Portugal, while the Algarve region has also been shortlisted for Europe’s Best Golf Destination award.

John Dwyer, Quinta do Lago’s chief executive, said, “It’s a tremendously exciting time for the resort with the opening of the new North Course and other recent changes and it’s fantastic to be given this opportunity to demonstrate what we have to offer to a global audience. We feel very privileged to have been given the chance to play a leading role in the inaugural World Golf Awards, and to be in the running for three leading awards makes our involvement even more special. We’ve received some tremendous feedback since reopening the North Course and believe it has the potential to become one of the new stars of European golf.”
