West Cliffs 6. green
Mer heder til West Cliff Golf Links
I slutten av 2017 kunne West Cliff Golf Links høste heder og ære. (Se under)
Nå har dette anlegget fått Golf Inc. magazines prestisjefylte pris i forbindelse
med "2019 Golf Development of the Year".
Keith Carter, managing editor of Golf Inc magazine, sa i forbindelse med
kåringen: “In recognising West Cliffs Golf Links as one of the best new
developments of the past year, the Golf Inc. judges pointed to the incredibly
scenic location and outstanding design by Cynthia Dye as key factors in their
selection. The project team's outstanding commitment to environmental
stewardship should serve as a model for the golf industry in Europe.”
Cynhia Dye er konen til den berømte banearkitekten Pete Dye som i mange år har
fått mye hjelp av sin dyktig kone.
Francisco Cadete, director of golf at West Cliffs Golf Links, sa: “It’s an
honour to receive any award, and to have been acknowledged in a renowned
international competition amongst such esteemed company makes everyone at the
resort immensely proud. The first 18 months have been outstanding for West
Cliffs and the course is developing and maturing all the time. The feedback that
we continue to receive from golfers from all over the world is incredible, and
the most exciting thing from my point of view is that the course is going to get
even better in the years to come as it reaches its full potential.”
I meldingen om utmerkelsen heter det videre:
"Managed by Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort, West Cliffs has been
created over 200 hectares of natural landscape and rolling sand dunes, and
offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from each hole.
Situated less than an hour north of Lisbon on the Silver Coast, the par-72
layout – which was designed by Cynthia Dye, her first course in Portugal – has
wasted no time at all in making a name for itself across the golfing world,
earning rave reviews from golfers and the media alike."
