2014 05 182282909

Scottish golf is the top international draw in golf tourism, according to the 10Best travel awards.


The 10Best travel award contest was sponsored by USA TODAY - the United States' most widely distributed newspaper.

Votes were determined during a month-long online vote by 10Best, and USA TODAY readers, from a group of global destinations that have golf as a centerpiece.

Venues such as St. Andrews, Turnbery, and Loch Lomond, all contributed to the home of golf being selected as the top international destination.

In fact, Scotland was the only non-American destination to feature in the poll, with other golfing venues such as Pinehurst, Kiawah Island, and Sea Island, Georgia, all included.

All in all Scottish golf came in at ninth place, with the honour of being the only destanation outside of the US to feature.

 

Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, California came out on top.

The area draws 15.2 million visitors and 3.5 million rounds of golf annually, and is famous for golf the world over.

Not surprising, as it is home to courses such as the spectacular TPC Myrtle Beach pictured above.

“Golf's most important ratings panel is comprised of the people who spend their hard-earned money to take a golf trip, which is why this honour is so meaningful to us as a destination," said Bill Golden, President of Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday

"As home to more than 50 4-star courses and 13 layouts that have been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses, Myrtle Beach has always strived to provide golf’s best and most inclusive experience, and the 10Best vote was affirmation of those efforts."
