Camiral Resort is celebrating a double success in the inaugural Today’s Golfer Travel Awards after it became the only destination in Spain to feature in the shortlists for both ‘Best Course’ and ‘Best Hotel’.

Readers of the UK’s best selling golf magazine voted Camiral into the top three of both categories, further highlighting the resort’s reputation as an oustanding all-round golf destination.

The awards also recognised the Costa Brava region as the ‘Best Value Golf Destination’ in Spain and third overall in Europe.

Commenting on the achievement, Julio Delgado, Camiral’s Chief Executive, said: “Since its opening, Camiral has focused on providing a world-class golfing experience, raising the bar at every opportunity and setting the standards for others to follow.

“Having both our Stadium and Tour Courses, and the Melia Golf Vichy Catalan Hotel, recognised in these awards is testament to our ethos of offering the best for our customers. Praise must go to all the team at Camiral Resort for striving to deliver this at every opportunity, every day.”  

The two awards come after Camiral, one of only two World Top 100 Courses in Spain, hosted the European Tour’s Qualifying School Final Stage for the fourth successive year last December.

Both European Tour officials and players praised the new short game academy and upgraded driving range that opened in November 2011, agreeing it is now among the best practice facilities in Europe.
