The first TG Travel Awards, held in conjunction with major golf travel operator Your Golf Travel, has been warmly received by golfers from all over the country who voted in their thousands for their favourite destinations, courses and hotels/resorts both in Europe and the UK.

Algarve venues also came out on top in Portugal’s Best Courses and Hotel/Resort categories with Vilamoura’s wonderful Old Course convincingly winning the former and Dona Filipa & San Lorenzo pipping another old favourite, Le Meridien Penina, to the latter spoils.

“Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the golfers who took the time and trouble to vote for their personal favourites. The inaugural awards have exceeded all our expectations and hopefully in time they will be referred to as the ‘Oscars of the golf travel industry,’” said TG editor Andy Calton.
