Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance named European Golf Destination of the Year for 2015

Golf is a popular sport amongst South Africans and the country boasts many world-renowned golf courses and tournaments but Ireland is now giving South African golf enthusiasts another reason to take a golfing trip to one of Lonely Planet’s top rated countries to visit in 2015.

 

On 30 October 2014, Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance was voted European Golf Destination of the Year at the annual golf industry ‘Oscars’ – the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) Awards. More than 540 golf tour operators in 62 countries, all members of IAGTO – voted Dublin East Coast as the European Golf Destination of the Year in the 2015 IAGTO Awards.

 

The Award recognises the greatest achievements of golf destinations and golf resorts, in terms of the experience they deliver to travelling golfers and the professionalism with which the destination and local industry work with golf tour operators.

 

The Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance is made up of these six members: Carton House, County Kildare; Druids Glen, County Wicklow; Mount Juliet, County Kilkenny; Powerscourt, County Wicklow; The Island Golf Club, County Dublin; and The K Club, County Kildare.

 

Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance Director Aine Mangan says: “It is a great honour to accept this award and a wonderful recognition for the region from the world’s leading golf tour operators. Dublin East Coast is home to some of the finest parkland and links courses and resorts all within easy access of Dublin International airport and the many attractions our capital city has to offer. Our aim is to consistently provide a great golf experience and warm welcome to our visitors to Ireland.”

 

Simon Gregory, Tourism Ireland’s Director of Markets, said: “Ireland has some of the greatest golf courses in the world – so it is wonderful to see them recognised by IAGTO in this way. No doubt this latest accolade for Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance will help to remind golf enthusiasts about our world-class golf.”

 

This region has hosted many prestigious golf tournaments, including the esteemed Irish and European Opens, the Seve Trophy as well as the Ryder Cup in 2006. Dublin East Coast not only has great golf courses but also world-class hotels, restaurants, bars attractions and hospitality and, indeed, most recently its very own Ryder Cup captain, Paul McGinley.
