Modry Las | Poland
Modry Las Golf Club has cemented its position as one of Europe’s most exciting golf developments by being named Poland’s best golf course for the third time.
The West Pomerania Gary Player-designed course picked up the top honour at the PGA-Polish Golf Awards, which have been awarded to Poland’s foremost golf venues and personalities since 2007.
This latest accolade follows a busy end to the 2015 season when Modry Las was awarded Poland’s national prize at the international World Golf Awards in Portugal. As Arthur Gromadzki, chairman of Modry Las, explained, receiving both international and national recognition has been one of the resort’s key objectives.
“It was always our ambition to create a golf resort that could be enjoyed by both visiting golfers and local players,” he said. “These awards represent our commitment to ensure that everyone is welcome at Modry Las, whether they are experienced global travellers or Polish golfers looking to enjoy the service and standards of an international resort.”
“It was always our ambition to create a golf resort that could be enjoyed by both visiting golfers and local players,”
He continued: “Being named the best golf course in Poland is a great honour, especially as the award comes from the people that know our country the best - the Polish people. It is also extremely pleasing because the award recognises Gary Player’s wonderful design and the beautiful countryside that surrounds the course as well as our continuing efforts to continually raise standards to make Modry Las a truly international resort.”
Modry Las - home to 27 holes of golf
Modry Las only opened in July 2009 but has made fast progress. It opened a nine-hole golf course to accompany its 18-hole championship layout last year and, this year, will stage both the World Amateur Golfers Championship and the International Polish Ladies Championship.
The former is widely regarded as the world’s largest amateur golf tournament and, as well as staging a qualifying event, it will co-host the final with Binowo Park Golf Club.
