Gleneagles has ended a momentous and hugely successful 2019 on a suitable high note after being announced as Golf World magazine’s top golf resort in the UK & Ireland.
The important accolade, which is judged by a panel of industry experts from the respected publication, is the culmination of an incredible 12 months for the 850-acre Perthshire estate, in which it celebrated its golf centenary, and hosted one of the most dramatic Solheim Cups in history.
Gleneagles became the only venue in Europe to have hosted both the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup and now retains its No.1 Golf Resort moniker for another two years, having previously been awarded similar status in 2017.
Conor O’Leary, joint managing director of Gleneagles, commented: “2019 has been a vintage year for golf at Gleneagles. Tens of thousands of golfing guests have experienced our King’s and Queen’s championship courses in their centenary year, and we were also proud hosts to one of the most enthralling sporting moments ever, when Suzann Pettersen clinched the Solheim Cup for Europe on The PGA Centenary Course. To end the year as the ‘UK & Ireland’s #1 Golf Resort’ makes 2019 a truly historic 12 months.”
