The magazine, whose readership is described as ‘senior executives working in the financial services industries based in the City, Mayfair and Canary Wharf’, highlighted the resort’s three outstanding golf courses and the €50m investment which is continuing to raise it above its competitors on the European market.
The title follows the resort recently being named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at the 2015 World Golf Awards.
Quinta do Lago’s €50m upgrade to its sports, leisure and lifestyle facilities is part of a six-year investment program, which has included the €9.6m redesign of its North Course by renowned American architect Beau Welling in close association with European Ryder Cup winning captain Paul McGinley.
These recent plaudits continue the resort’s success story following on from two awards at the inaugural World Golf Awards last year and being named ‘Best Golf Resort in Portugal’ at the 2015 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards for the first time in its illustrious history.
John Dwyer, chief executive at Quinta do Lago, said: “To receive this title from a magazine of Square Mile’s stature is testament to the foresight and investment of the resort and we thank them for the recognition. We welcome many executives from London’s financial district throughout the year – indeed, from all of Europe’s financial districts – and many have subsequently purchased property on the resort, so maybe their input has helped us achieve this award.”
Quinta do Lago’s investment will continue in 2016 with the creation of a new state-of-the-art sports centre, with the facility offering the very best amenities for sport lovers, with more than 25 activities available, as well as a cutting-edge, modern clubhouse.
The official winter training base for England Golf’s elite squads, Quinta do Lago is perfect for a relaxing family holiday in exquisite surroundings and offers the very best in award-winning sports and leisure facilities.
The resort’s three championship courses are matched by outstanding practice facilities, with a state-of-the-art TaylorMade Performance Center – the only such facility in southern Europe – and new short-game area, in addition to the resort’s Paul McGinley Golf Academy.
Set among 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, there’s plenty to keep guests occupied away from the fairways, with events, tennis, cycling and watersports just some of the extensive leisure activities available, plus 10 exclusive bars and restaurants.
