World Golf Awards, the most prestigious awards programme in the golf tourism industry, has signed Portugal Golf Membership as Golf Partner for the upcoming Gala Ceremony 2015. 

The event will be staged at the luxurious Conrad Algarve, Portugal, for the second successive year on November 5th-8th, 2015.

The Portugal Golf Membership is a digital platform that offers benefits to golfers wishing to travel to Portugal for a golf break, the perfect partner for the prestigious event.

Membership is free, while offers are available as soon as guests book their trip to Portugal.

As part of the deal, Portugal Golf Membership will be offering World Golf Awards delegates a chance to win a slot at the annual Pro-Am during the Portugal Masters in October.

World Golf Awards participants will be offered with a chance to take a guess in a Spot the Ball Challenge for a chance to win when they vote.

World Golf Awards Managing Director Chris Frost explained: “We are delighted to welcome Portugal Golf Membership as our Golf Partner in 2015.

“Returning for our second year to the Conrad Algarve is a real opportunity for us to showcase the best in international golf hospitality, with preparations already in full swing for the event.”

Visitors to The Portugal Golf Membership site have access to memorable lifestyle experiences, such as sunset sailing, wine tastings, gastronomy, and golf packages, as well as discounts on hotels, clubs and golf equipment rental.

Portugal - which took the title of World’s Best Golf Destination at the inaugural World Golf Awards in 2014 - is the first country to have an organised membership, which works as an exclusive golf club, fulfilling the needs of the international golfers.

The destination is located on the western edge of the European continent, which gives it all the conditions to have one of the friendliest climates for golf anywhere in the world.

As for the Algarve, Portugal’s golf capital for more than 40 years, the offer is nothing more, nothing less than the most challenging courses with top class levels of friendly service, sandy beaches, and hidden coves.

Join Portugal Golf Membership at and enjoy a unique golfing experience in Portugal.
