Carnoustie Golf Links received the 2005 Golf Course Secretariat of the Year award at the annual Scottish Golf Tourism Industry Dinner held at the Westin Turnberry Resort. The venerable Open venue was also cited in the industry’s Golf Course of the Year category and its caddie master, Martin Roy, reached the shortlist in its Caddie Master of the Year award.
“We are delighted to win the Scottish Golf Tourism industry’s Golf Course Secretariat of the Year award and also to be recognised in the other two categories,” said Colin McLeod, Carnoustie Links’ golf services manager.
“We have worked hard to provide a top quality service for visitors to Carnoustie and feel this award is a fitting tribute for what has been achieved.
“2005 has proved to be a tremendous year for the Carnoustie Golf Links,” added McLeod. “The much-publicised launch of our on-line booking service helped us to attract a record number of visitors and we are hopeful we can attract even greater numbers both in the lead up to the 2007 Open Championship and beyond.”
McLeod received the Scottish Golf Tourism Industry award on behalf of the Carnoustie Golf Links from Olympic sprint champion Alan Wells. TV presenter Dougie Donnelly hosted the dinner and prize giving.
