[dropcap]Royal[/dropcap] Obidos golf and spa resort based in Portugal has won Europe’s golf resort of the year at the 16th annual IAGTO Awards ceremony at Tenerife’s Siam Park.

592 golf tour operators from 61 different countries were asked to vote for what they considered to be the best-performing golf resorts of the year. Based on customer satisfaction, quality of golf courses and accommodation and value for money amongst others, 10 awards were offered ranging from Undiscovered Golf Destination of the year to North America’s Golf Destination of the year.

Situated in Lisbon, the stunning Royal Obidos golf course was opened for play in just 2012 but has built a reputation as being one of the finest in Europe. It was designed by the late great Seve Ballesteros, measuring at 7,318 yards from the back tees.

Six of the holes meander through an intricate system of lakes whilst the signature 3rd, boasts an island green with a backdrop of the Obidos lagoon.

Not only is the golf course designed to perfection, it boasts a sumptuous clubhouse with a restaurant and spike bar which overlooks nine of the 18 holes.
