The World Golf Awards will take place at the five-star La Manga Club resort in Murcia, from 23-26 November 2017.
The event will take place at the resort over three days and includes networking events, dinners and golf experience activities.
The highlight of the event will be the red-carpet World Golf Awards Gala Ceremony on Saturday 25 November, where golf tourism figureheads and market leaders from North America, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa, Central & South America and Australasia will gather together at La Manga Club’s Hotel Principe Felipe for the 2017 winners to be announced.
“The team and I are beyond excited to be bringing the World Golf Awards to Spain for the first time,” said Chris Frost, World Golf Awards managing director.
“We look forward to welcoming industry leaders and luminaries to La Manga Club, Spain’s most exclusive sports and leisure resort, in November and I know it will be a weekend to remember.”
Featuring three 18-hole golf courses, a nine-hole academy course and practice facilities, La Manga Club has a rich golfing history.
José Asenjo, general manager of La Manga Club, said: “It’s a great honour and privilege to be chosen to host the World Golf Awards for the first time, in what is a landmark year for the resort as we celebrate our 45th birthday.
“Every year the event attracts some of the most respected figures in the golf industry, and we’re very excited to have this opportunity to showcase our numerous world-class golf and leisure facilities to a key global audience and look forward to welcoming everyone here in November.”
