Celtic Manor voted Europe's Best Golf Hotel, World Golf Awards
The Celtic Manor Resort has picked up another major accolade after being voted Europe’s Best Golf Hotel in the World Golf Awards.
The award completes a notable European double for the South Wales resort in end-of-year awards ceremonies. Earlier in November, chief executive Ian Edwards was named Hotelier of the Year at the European Hospitality Awards.
Celtic Manor was also named Wales’ Best Golf Hotel and its Twenty Ten Course was named Wales’ Best Golf Course at the World Golf Awards ceremony, which took place in Portugal.
Celtic Manor Director of Golf, Spa and Leisure Will Hewitt said: “We’re delighted to have been voted Europe’s Best Golf Hotel after another busy year on our three championship golf courses.
“We’re fortunate here to have not only a wonderful golf offering but also an exceptional, world-class hotel and staff who take a pride in exceeding the expectations of our guests.
“What is particularly pleasing about this award is that votes were cast by professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry – senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals, as well as by travelling golfers.”
Host venue for the Ryder Cup in 2010, Celtic Manor was named Europe’s Leading Golf Resort in a separate awards organised by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators in 2011. Earlier this year it was also named the UK’s Ultimate Golf Resort at the 59 Club Awards.
Other winners at the World Golf Awards included Portugal (World’s Best Golf Destination) and St Andrews (World’s Best Golf Course).
World Golf Awards Managing Director Christopher Frost said: “We have seen some true champions emerge here this evening at the second annual World Golf Awards.
“It has been a privilege to recognise the international leaders in golf hospitality and to shine the spotlight on some of the best golfing destinations from around the world. My congratulations to those among them who have emerged victorious.”
