On 17 November, global golf tourism association, International Association of Golf Tour Operators, named the Western Cape in South Africa the ‘2016 Golf Destination of the Year for Africa and the Gulf States’. Accepting the award on behalf of the province at this prestigious event held in Spain was Fancourt’s Head of Sales and Marketing, Peter Dros.
Established in 2000, the IAGTO Awards aim to recognise brilliance in the golf tourism industry, honouring top performing golf destinations around the world. This year, the Western Cape stood out for its natural beauty, cultural offerings, favourable climate and of course, world-class golfing venues.
“Thank-you for recognising our destination for great value for money, the great experiences we offer, the food and wine and safari [industries], and also for the golf experience,” Dros said at the awards.
Located in the Western Cape’s striking Garden Route, and with three award-winning golf courses on-site, Fancourt offers itself as an ideal setting to explore the province’s extensive offerings.
“We are thrilled that the Western Cape has been celebrated at the IAGTO Awards and Fancourt is proud to continue to contribute to our province’s excellence,” said Dros.
