Royal Westmoreland tees up for the win at 2015 World Golf Awards

March 2015


Voting now open through September 29, 2015; winners announced on November 7, 2015

St James, Barbados, March 18, 2015: Royal Westmoreland, Barbados’s exclusive golf, beach and spa estate, is driving to score another hole-in-one in the eyes of the international golf community this year. The estate has been recognized with two prestigious nominations in the second annual World Golf Awards, in the categories "Barbados’s Best Golf Hotel 2015”, and "Barbados’s Best Golf Course 2015”.

The nominations follow closely on last year’s win. At the inaugural World Golf Awards in November, Royal Westmoreland was named "Barbados’s Best Golf Hotel 2014”, a further testimony to its position as a world-class golf destination.

"We’re honoured to be recognized by the worldwide golfing community for a consecutive year,” says Roger Beale, Director of Golf at Royal Westmoreland. "Since opening in 1994, our course has been known for its par threes, challenging greens and elevated amenities. Today, we continue to reinvest and evolve the golf experience at Royal Westmoreland. Recently, we’ve extended some of the tees, upgraded the pro shop and locker rooms, and are currently restoring the bunkers.”

Royal Westmoreland’s par 72, 7,045-yard championship course was designed by globally-recognized Robert Trent Jones Jr. The course—set in a lush, tropical landscape with ocean views from every hole—is consistently rated one of the best in the Caribbean. The golf experience is further enhanced by a pro shop, driving range, practice greens, colonial-style clubhouse, short game academy, as well as club and shoe hire. Golfers also have access to private and group lessons with Royal Westmoreland’s two full-time professionals, Roger Beale and Sean Edey.

The World Golf Awards—part of the World Travel Awards—serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses and golf destinations. Voting is open to industry professionals and the greater public until September 29, 2015, by voting online at www.worldgolfawards.com. The winners will be announced on November 7, 2015.
