The World of Leading Golf Awards are based on the results of the World of Leading Golf Mystery Test in combination with the input given from those business professionals the association has designated to be part of our jury. Carried out anonymously 2 - 4 times by golfers of all handicaps, the WLG Mystery Test serves to objectively qualify and benchmark WLG member clubs. A fact that differentiates the association from many others and turns the World of Leading Golf brand into a dependable quality seal for excellent golf experiences.
Claus Feldt, WLG’s chief executive, said: “As the association grows in membership, year on year, so the competition for the awards increases accordingly. While we have five nominations for each of the awards, there were a number of clubs which missed out on being nominated by just the odd point or two, which is testament to the quality and high standards of all of our members.
“It’s also gratifying for us, as an organisation, to see so many first-time nominees, which also illustrates the levels to which they each aspire.”
The awards will be handed over in the framework of an ‘entre nous’ day of golf and celebration on the island of Mallorca where the board and many executives of the World of Leading Golf member clubs will get together. An inspirational get together at eye level where all guests will get to know each other better and make the most of the exchange.
