JJW Hotels & Resorts Nominated for Five World Golf Awards in 2017
11 October 2017
Votes for the Prestigious World Golf Awards are Now Being Counted...
For 2017, JJW’s five-star Portuguese resorts, Dona Filipa Hotel and Penina Hotel & Golf Resort are in the running for the country’s Best Golf Hotel; whilst the group’s San Lorenzo, Pinheiros Altos and Sir Henry Cotton Championship golf courses are all nominated for Portugal’s Best Golf Course.
Ruben Paula, JJW’s Chief Operating Officer in Portugal, said of the news: “This, as with all our awards and nominations, is down to the hundreds of hard working staff who ensure that the highest standards of luxury and service are met, every single day, without fail.”
The rewards recognise and celebrate excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses and leading golf destinations… with the winners being honoured in an exclusive ceremony on the 25th of November. After a hugely successful 2017 so far – that has seen a range of renovations of both hotels and golf courses – the group is looking forward to an exceptional end to the year… and an even better 2018.
“JJW Hotels & Resorts has been a leading part of the Portugal tourism industry for over 30 years. Throughout this period we have grown, evolved and moved with the times… but have always kept on delivering the best golf and the finest resorts. These latest nominations are a reflection of where we have come from and what we have achieved. And I can’t wait for you to see what we do next.”
