West Cliffs celebrates another major accolade

West Cliffs 1

West Cliffs Golf Links has further enhanced its reputation as one of the leading lights of world golf after claiming a leading accolade in Golf Inc. magazine’s prestigious ‘2019 Golf Development of the Year’ awards.

The Portuguese resort staved off fierce international competition from a collection of golfing venues around the world to be chosen as one of the three main winners in this year’s contest.

Entries were judged across a variety of different categories – including the success of the overall business model, achieving the vision of the architect and the level of sustainability of each development both environmentally and economically.

• Alcanada adds finishing touches to winter improvements

• Introducing Al Mouj - the Middle East's latest jewel

• The pick of the courses to play in South Africa

The accolade is the latest in a growing list of international honours that West Cliffs has won since opening to widespread praise in June 2017, including being ranked second in the Top 100 Golf Courses website’s latest list of the top layouts in Portugal and being voted as the ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ at the 2017 World Golf Awards.

Francisco Cadete, director of golf at West Cliffs Golf Links, said: “It’s an honour to receive any award, and to have been acknowledged in a renowned international competition amongst such esteemed company makes everyone at the resort immensely proud.

“The first 18 months have been outstanding for West Cliffs and the course is developing and maturing all the time.

"The feedback that we continue to receive from golfers from all over the world is incredible, and the most exciting thing from my point of view is that the course is going to get even better in the years to come as it reaches its full potential.”
