The Tryall Club has been given the prestigious title of Sustainable Golf Destination of the Year for Nature Conservation in the golf tourism industry’s inaugural awards for sustainability – held as part of the annual IAGTO Awards.
Established in 2000 by global golf tourism industry organization IAGTO, the IAGTO Awards are widely regarded as the golf industry’s “Oscars” and take place at the end of the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM). This year, IAGTO teamed up with the Golf Environment Organization (GEO) to recognize excellence in golf course sustainability, with the winners being named at a gala event at the historic Tarragona Placa De Toros, in Tarrogona, on Spain’s Costa Daurada. The Tryall Club was the first recipient of the sustainability award for Nature Conservation.
Being a Green Globe member since 2010, The Tryall Club easily qualified for entry in this category. Its sustainability practices include: heritage and natural preserved sites on its world-renowned golf course; conservation of native landscapes for visitor appreciation; and working with its partners on sustainable practices that foster an environment of preservation and conservation of resources.
The Tryall Club thrives by adapting sustainable measures for the maintenance and creation of liveable habitats on property, and that is the secret to its continued success in sustainability awards.
The Tryall Club was hailed by the awards organizers, the Golf Environmental Organization (GEO) and IAGTO, as having an outstanding, well-rounded conservation and enhancement program. They said: ‘The management and staff demonstrated an unparalleled commitment and appreciation for biodiversity and landscape protection.”
The Tryall Club Managing Director, Gerald Giarla, expressed great pride in being a recipient of the award, stating: “Here at Tryall, we have a wealth of natural beauty and a rich history which the staff and members are inspired to preserve; making it the ultimate vacation destination for discerning travelers.”
Giarla continued: “Our world-renowned golf course has remained among the best in the Caribbean for generations and through sustainable practices and plans, this treasure will remain our legacy.”
