Quinta do Lago has won fresh acclaim as one of the world’s leading luxury golf and lifestyle destinations after being honoured by Golf Digest magazine – the world’s biggest golf title – for the fifth successive year.
The exclusive resort further strengthened its reputation as Portugal’s top sports, leisure and family venue after being selected by the magazine as a recipient for its coveted “2020 Editors’ Choice Award for the Best Resorts in Continental Europe”.
The awards were launched by Golf Digest in 2016 to highlight ‘the best things in golf’ to its readers, with the emphasis on lifestyle properties, products and services.
The 2020 list of winners features a who’s who of the elite names in the global golf industry and was compiled following close consultation with a combination of the magazine’s international affiliate titles and around 1,200 golf-course raters.
Max Adler, editorial director for Golf Digest, said: “The winners in our ‘Editors’ Choice Best Resorts’ category are those which we’d confidently recommend to any golfer. Resorts named are first-class facilities that, first and foremost, have an exemplary offering of unique and quality golf courses. The facilities must also have amenities that separate themselves from others.”
Sean Moriarty, CEO at Quinta do Lago, said: “It’s a tremendous achievement for Quinta do Lago to have been chosen to receive this top accolade for the fifth year running.
“We know that this sort of international recognition only comes from hard work and a commitment to providing five-star facilities to all our members and guests. We have made a number of investments in our facilities in recent years, both on and off the golf course, and we will continue to strive to deliver the best possible customer experience in the future.”
Situated just a 15-minute drive away from Faro airport, Quinta do Lago – also shortlisted to be named as ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at the 2020 World Golf Awards – is the perfect choice for a sporting break and boasts a combination of world-class golf and lifestyle facilities.
As well as three renowned 18-hole championship golf courses – the North, South and Laranjal – and outstanding practice facilities, guests can stay in shape at The Campus, a world-class sports hub designed for professionals and amateurs alike to keep fit.
Complementing the facilities is a choice of 13 first-class bars and restaurants that deliver a range of delicious world cuisines, including the acclaimed Bovino Steakhouse and recently-opened Dano’s Sports Bar & Restaurant, and accommodation at the recently-acquired boutique The Magnolia Hotel.
