THE WORLD OF LEADING GOLF AWARDS 2017
On Nov. 25th the Aloha Golf Club Marbella and World of Leading Golf CEO Claus Feldt welcomed members and guests to celebrate this year's best member clubs and present them with the World of Leading Golf Award 2017. In perfect accordance with the host club's philosophy, the event was characterized by its distinguished and vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere.
The classy holiday refuge of Marbella on the Costa del Sol was the perfect destination for the fourth annual World of Leading Golf Awards. And the private Aloha Golf Club the perfect setting for such an almost intimate event due to the fact, that very selected clubs match up to the World of Leading Golf standards at all.
Although the stunning Aloha Golf Club is a private venue, it is cherished by many for its combination of a wonderful course, attentive service and excellent food with a friendly and unpretentious atmosphere. It is a prestigious social hub with numerous popular events and everything that goes with it, so it is no wonder, that guests coming to attend the World of Leading Golf Awards 2017 felt more than welcome there.
Being host and moderator at the same time, World of Leading Golf CEO Claus Feldt shared his task of presenting the nominees and winners with his partner at International Golf Research, Keith Haslam. Of course, the day and evening also served as a chance to connect and bring everyone up-to-date.
As Claus Feldt explained after the affair: “There were many excellent networking opportunities while guests also used the occasion to renew acquaintances with people they have known for some years. Evenings like this are particularly valuable in golf, for it is a relatively small industry in terms of the people in it – they move around but tend to stay within it – and they value social occasions such as this where they can catch up with people they may have known from previous roles.”
Looking at the awards ceremony itself, he added: “The highlight of the evening will naturally have been the presentation of the WLG Awards and we’d like to congratulate all the winners on their individual successes. But we should also emphasise that, in being a member of WLG, each venue has already demonstrated a commitment to being one of the best destinations in world golf.”
