Host venue for 2019 Solheim Cup earns coveted Gold Flag Award at 59club golf service awards
Gleneagles has picked up a coveted ‘Gold Flag Award for Golf Resorts’ at the annual 59club golf service awards.
Gleneagles was one of only six UK resorts to receive the highly sought-after award, reflecting the hotel’s commitment to delivering exceptional service and its continual investment in golf facilities.
The accolade is the latest achievement in a string of successes for the luxury Perthshire hotel, after gaining numerous awards in golf and leisure over the past year.
Last summer, Gleneagles won the prestigious Best Golf Resort in the World title for the fourth year running at the 2015 UltraTravel Awards, while in January it was awarded the title of Scotland’s Best Hotel/Resort in the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards 2016 for the third consecutive year.
Gary Silcock, Director of Golf, collected the award at a ceremony in the Forest of Arden Marriot Hotel & Country Club. He said: “Receiving this prestigious award reflects the quality of our facilities and our commitment to providing outstanding service to everyone who comes to play at Gleneagles – whether a first-time visitor, a junior, a local member, a hotel guest or a professional player.
“Every part of the golfer’s journey at Gleneagles is shaped by the pursuit of excellence. From the moment guests step into the clubhouse, they can expect not only a world-class playing experience, but a warm and hospitable welcome, an elegant social environment, an exceptional retail and fitting facility, and coaching provision that is second to none.
“Gaining Gold Flag status provides a solid starting point from which we can continue to enhance this golf experience. We are currently undertaking a substantial programme of improvements to our facilities.
“This award, along with our success in numerous other recent awards, strengthens our confidence to achieve even greater heights in 2016.”
