Ryder Cup host venue The Gleneagles Hotel has been named the Best Golf Resort in the World for a fifth consecutive year at the 2016 ULTRAS Awards.


The Perthshire resort, which will also host the 2019 Solheim Cup and 2018 European Championships, was presented with the accolade in a ceremony held at the Savoy Hotel, London, following a voting process by readers of the Telegraph and Ultratravel to determine the world's best travel experiences.

Gleneagles faced some esteemed competition in the category, seeing off Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, United States; La Manga Club, Spain; Pebble Beach Resorts, United States; and St Andrews Links, Scotland, to clinch the title.

Paul Heery, Gleneagles’ general manager, who attended the ceremony said: “Winning this prestigious award would be an honour for any hotel or golf resort, but winning it five times in a row is an enormous privilege and accomplishment.

“We are committed to providing an outstanding guest experience and our success is testament to the dedicated efforts of Gleneagles’ staff who work tirelessly to ensure every aspect of the customer journey is exceptional and creates lasting memories.”

Gary Silcock, Gleneagles’ director of golf, added: “We’re delighted to receive this award which demonstrates the high regard with which guests view our golf facilities.

“We pride ourselves on delivering a world-class golfing experience through impeccable customer service, unrivalled facilities and tuition, and outstanding courses – but we don’t rest on our laurels and are continually aiming for higher and better.

“We recently embarked on a multi-million pound investment programme across the hotel to enhance the guest experience – which includes developments to the Dormy Clubhouse, the PGA National Golf Academy and the James Braid designed King’s Course – and we look forward to introducing golfers to these new facilities.”
