Golf Digest, one of the world’s largest and most influential golf media brands, has crowned two member venues of European Tour Properties, the network of world class golf venues, in its inaugural Editors’ Choice Awards.

Quinta do Lago, in Portugal, which now boasts three championship golf courses, including the radically revamped North Course – designed by Beau Welling in association with 2014 European Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley – topped the media title’s ‘Best International Resort, Continental Europe’ listing.

Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort, the five-star resort in Provence, France, and venue of the European Senior Tour’s French Riviera Masters, was recognised for its emphasis on first-class experience, lifestyle properties, the finest products and five-star services.

For its inaugural Editors’ Choice Awards, Golf Digest USA – which has more than 1.6m subscribers in the US alone – surveyed a 900-strong committee of golf-course panellists and sought nominations and opinions from across the international network of foreign Golf Digest editions, as well as other partners, professionals and seasoned golf travellers, in addition to its own well-travelled editors.

David MacLaren, The European Tour’s Director of Property and Venue Development, said: “As European Tour Properties comprise some of the most prestigious golf and lifestyle resorts in Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, it is pleasing to see our member venues, which are all closely associated with The European Tour, recognised in the inaugural Editors’ Choice Awards.

“Golfers have looked to Golf Digest’s rankings as the complete service guide for best public courses, resorts and destinations. The extension of its franchise to now rate the best of everything in the total golf lifestyle sphere echoes what European Tour Properties believes are fundamental elements for every world class golf venue.”
