World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world class courses and golf destinations.
Golf tourism constitutes a vital segment in the global travel and tourism marketplace. The 2017 World Golf Awards will focus on the leading 130 nations who are shaping the future of this dynamic industry.
While celebrating and rewarding excellence across golf resorts, courses and the golfing destinations throughout the world, World Golf Awards strives to ultimately raise the golf tourist customer experience and stimulate both the domestic and international golf tourism market.
Votes will be made by professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry – senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals. Votes may also be cast by the public (golf tourism consumers).
The voting works on a first-past-the post system to ensure impartiality and independence. Votes are submitted online via the World Golf Awards website.
The winners of each national category will go head-to-head with the winners of the other countries before the unveiling of the World Winners.
World Golf Awards is part of World Travel Awards, currently celebrating its 24th anniversary.
