IAGTO 2016 Golf Destination Picks

The 2016 IGTM Awards

Top international golf tourism association reveals its 2016 golf destination picks. 

 

The gala awards ceremony that annually punctuates the final night of the highly popular International Golf Travel Market (IGTM, produced by Reed Exhibitions), wrapped a week of travel networking during a beautiful October (2015) on the Spanish island of Tenerife, just off the western coast of the African Sahara. 

Hundreds of attendees took their place among an ocean of tables placed under the stars and within the walls of Siam Park Tenerife water park (“The Water Kingdom”). With Champagne flowing, International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) President and Chief Executive Peter Walton took the stage to reveal the organization’s 2016 golf destination picks in a variety of categories.

Spread fairly evenly across all points on the planet’s compass, IAGTO’s selections comprise a set of international layouts that appear more than deserving of the honor. To the winners, LinkedGolfers offers many congratulations.

Just one question:  When are  you having us over for a friendly round?
