New TG Travel Awards winners announced

Published:

More then 7,000 of you voted in the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards, which recognise the best courses and resorts in Britain, Ireland and continental Europe.

Once again, the TG Travel Awards have provided a massive hit having again been sponsored by premier UK-based golf tour operator Your Golf Travel.

TG Editor Chris Jones said: “These are the only golf travel awards nominated by real golfers, who pay to play and stay at these destinations. That’s why you can guarantee the courses and resorts who’ve been successful will give you a fantastic experience."

The coveted TG Travel Awards burst onto the scene in 2011 and are clearly here to stay. They’re going from strength to strength and like the Oscars, they’re the awards everybody wants to win. Of course  there can only be 17 category winners and congratulations to those who emerged triumphant and commiserations to those who missed out on the spoils.
