The West Cliffs Golf Course confirmed its reputation by receiving this past November 26th prize for the "Best New Golf Course in the World" awarded during the 2017 World Golf Awards ceremony.

This course, designed by Cynthia Dye, surpassed the strong competition and reached the lead in the awards ceremony that took place at La Manga Club - Murcia (Spain).

Inaugurated in June, the West Cliffs has enjoyed a brilliant start and has already garnered numerous notable entries, such as the Golf Environment Organization (GEO) Certified® Development Member Certificate. It was also the new highest entry (25th place) for the ranking of the "Top 100 Courses" in Continental Europe.

"Winning such a coveted international prize in our first six months of existence is an incredible feat that made the entire resort team extremely proud," said Francisco Cadete, West Cliffs golf director.

Seen as one of the most prestigious golf tourism awards, this edition of the World Golf Awards attracted a record number of votes from golf professionals from around the world, and golf consumers from over 100 countries.

Located just one hour north of Lisbon, the West Cliffs is the first Cinthya Dye golf course in Portugal and the only one in Europe. The par-72 course is surrounded by 200 hectares of natural landscape, in a space where there is also a golf academy and a Clubhouse. The West Cliffs is being managed by the Praia D'El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.
