West Cliffs 6. green

Mer heder til West Cliff Golf Links
I slutten av 2017 kunne West Cliff Golf Links høste heder og ære. (Se under)

Nå har dette anlegget fått Golf Inc. magazines prestisjefylte pris i forbindelse med "2019 Golf Development of the Year".

Keith Carter, managing editor of Golf Inc magazine, sa i forbindelse med kåringen: “In recognising West Cliffs Golf Links as one of the best new developments of the past year, the Golf Inc. judges pointed to the incredibly scenic location and outstanding design by Cynthia Dye as key factors in their selection. The project team's outstanding commitment to environmental stewardship should serve as a model for the golf industry in Europe.”

Cynhia Dye er konen til den berømte banearkitekten Pete Dye som i mange år har fått mye hjelp av sin dyktig kone.

Francisco Cadete, director of golf at West Cliffs Golf Links, sa: “It’s an honour to receive any award, and to have been acknowledged in a renowned international competition amongst such esteemed company makes everyone at the resort immensely proud. The first 18 months have been outstanding for West Cliffs and the course is developing and maturing all the time. The feedback that we continue to receive from golfers from all over the world is incredible, and the most exciting thing from my point of view is that the course is going to get even better in the years to come as it reaches its full potential.”

I meldingen om utmerkelsen heter det videre:
"Managed by Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort, West Cliffs has been created over 200 hectares of natural landscape and rolling sand dunes, and offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from each hole.
Situated less than an hour north of Lisbon on the Silver Coast, the par-72 layout – which was designed by Cynthia Dye, her first course in Portugal – has wasted no time at all in making a name for itself across the golfing world, earning rave reviews from golfers and the media alike."

En spennende resort med andre ord

West Cliffs green nr 5 ligger fantasisk til som resten av banen

28.11  West Cliffs Golf Links, Portugal:
Helt ny bane høster heder og ære - velfortjent
Selv om det ikke bygges så mange nye golfbaner for tiden, kan det være verdt å se på denne banen.

West Cliffs Golf Links på en helt ny golf resort i Portugal har vært åpen i et halvt år. Banen ble nylig kåret til World’s Best New Golf Course under "The 2017 World Golf Awards".

Her kan du lese om denne nyheten:

West Cliffs Golf Links has confirmed its reputation as the new star of global golf and capped an incredible first six months by being named as the ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ at the 2017 World Golf Awards.

The Cynthia Dye-designed course, which has already been tipped to become the new number one layout in Portugal, overcame stiff competition to collect the leading accolade at a lavish awards ceremony at La Manga Club in Murcia, Spain.

Opened in June, West Cliffs has enjoyed a memorable start and has already claimed a number of notable honours, including becoming a Golf Environment Organisation (GEO) Certified® Development and being the highest new entry at no.25 in a 2017 ranking list of the ‘Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe.

Dette er det 10. hullet. Det er jo en drøm bar å få muligheten til å være til stede. Med slike omgivelser er det nesten slik at golfen kommer i andre rekke.

Francisco Cadete, director of golf at West Cliffs Golf Links, said: “To win such a coveted global award in our first six months is an amazing achievement and one that makes everyone at the resort very proud.

“The course has lived up to everything it promised to be when Cynthia was designing it, and more, and is something truly special. We’ve received some incredible feedback from golfers all over the world since opening and believe the course will get even better in the years to come.”

Regarded as the most prestigious awards programme in golf tourism, this year’s World Golf Awards attracted a record number of votes from golf tourism professionals worldwide and golf consumers in more than 100 countries.

The event at La Manga Club featured leading golf industry figures from 40-plus countries from all over the world including legendary commentator, ‘the Voice of Golf’ Peter Alliss, and record 18-time Major winner Jack Nicklaus, who accepted his ‘Golf Course Designer of the Year 2017’ award via a video message.

Chris Frost, managing director of the World Golf Awards, said: “I would like to congratulate West Cliffs on this remarkable achievement.

“Golf tourism's highest accolade is truly deserved and the award rewards its commitment to excellence and determination to achieve market leader status.”

Located an hour north of Lisbon on Portugal’s magnificent Silver Coast, West Cliffs is Cynthia Dye’s first golf course in Portugal – and only her fourth in Europe. The spectacular par-72 clifftop links sits amongst 200 hectares of natural landscape, rolling sand dunes and coastal vegetation, and offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from each hole.

Complementing the par-72 course is a golf academy, while the resort has further enhanced its environmental credentials at the venue’s eco-friendly clubhouse.
West Cliffs is being managed by Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort – one of Europe’s leading resorts – which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017.
