The nomination was awarded by the International Golf Tour Operators Association (IAGTO), which represents the global golf tourism industry.
After gastronomy and tourism, Portugal begins to be recognized for golf. This Thursday, the Algarve was awarded the Best Golf Destination Award in the World for 2020, awarded by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) – the organization that represents the global golf tourism industry.
The voting was attended by over 700 tour operators, specializing in this industry and coming from over 60 different countries. The South has stood out as a favorite when it comes to offering the best experience for tourists who practice this sport.
The quality and diversity of the Algarve’s golf facilities, ease of access to the destination through frequent connections with Faro airport, value for money and of course the natural beauty of the region and the good climate prevailed for tour operators.
This is the third time that the Algarve is distinguished by IAGTO, having in 2006 and 2014 achieved the title of Best Golf Destination in Europe.
The award was presented to João Fernandes, president of Turismo do Algarve.
