The Scottish five-star hotel Gleneagles with it’s iconic golfcoruses has been voted ‘Best Golf Resort in the World’ for an unprecedented sixth successive year by readers of the Telegraph’s luxury travel magazine Ultratravel, and visitors to the telegraph.co.uk website.
Readers were asked to vote for their favourite travel experiences in 19 categories, with Gleneagles taking the top golf award ahead of Pebble Beach Resorts and Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, USA; St. Andrews Links, Scotland and La Manga Resort in Spain.
Bernard Murphy, Gleneagles’ Managing Director, commented: “This, voted for by our customers, underline the quality of our world-class golf facilities and the dedication of the whole Gleneagles team.”
This latest accolade comes as the 850-acre Perthshire estate prepares to host two significant events over the next two years, the 2018 European Golf Team Championships and the 2019 Solheim Cup. The award also coincides with the completion of a detailed renovation project on The King’s and The Queen’s (18th hole pictured above) courses.
The King’s Course is renowned ar the number one inland course in Scotland, and will celebrate its centenary in 2019. The course has been taken back to James Braid’s original design vision last year, and similar work was undertaken last winter on The Queen’s Course.
