WORLD GOLF AWARDS GALA CEREMONY 2016 Thank you all for joining us here this evening at the exquisite Conrad Algarve as we prepare to celebrate the third annual World Golf Awards Gala Ceremony - an event fast growing to become the industry benchmark in sports tourism. After months of preparation, this is an exciting time for myself and the World Golf Awards team as we continue to grow into our role as the leading global initiative to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence in the golf hospitality industry. It is an honour to welcome so many of you to the Algarve, here in Portugal, for the event, with a host of global leaders in attendance with us tonight. Some are new faces, while many are returning friends. Many thousands of votes have been cast for the best golf courses, tour operators and hotels during the build up to tonight’s event and this evening we will see who has emerged victorious.

world, World Golf Awards will strive to ultimately raise the golf tourist customer experience and stimulate both the domestic and international golf tourism market. I am sure you will agree the Conrad Algarve is the perfect venue for tonight’s Gala Ceremony. This is one of the most modern five star hotels in the Algarve, sitting in an exclusive, naturally beautiful outlook over the Atlantic Ocean. With contemporary design and technology flowing through the luxurious accommodation in harmony with beautiful natural surroundings, the property has everything required for a great holiday in the Algarve. May I also offer my thanks to General Manager Joachim Hartl, without whom tonight’s event simply could not have taken place.

Golf tourism constitutes a vital segment in the global travel and tourism marketplace. An estimated 60 million golfer visits will take place in 2016 to the 32,000 golf courses and resorts worldwide. The 2016 World Golf Awards will focus on the leading 130 nations who are shaping the future of this dynamic industry.

Many of you will have had the chance to enjoy the redeveloped North Course at Quinta do Lago earlier during the World Golf Awards Classic 2016 competition. I speak from personal experience when I say it is one of the most exhilarating experiences in modern golf.

While celebrating and rewarding excellence across golf resorts, courses and the golfing destinations throughout the

Redesigned by renowned American architect Beau Welling in close collaboration with European Ryder Cup captain

Paul McGinley, the new layout has been built to the highest specifications with a €9.6m investment programme and is in line to become the new number one course at the prestigious family resort. The North Course has been redeveloped with the emphasis firmly on precision and strategy. While many modern-day developments tend to focus on length, Welling and McGinley have been keen to design a golfing experience where accuracy and course management are the key factors, aiming for a course that is playable and fun for golfers of all abilities. I’m sure you’ll agree their endeavours have been well rewarded. Finally, let me say the best of luck to all of our nominees tonight and thank you once again for supporting us. Have a wonderful evening! Christopher Frost Managing Director, World Golf Awards

GOOD EVENING LADIES & GENTLEMEN Conrad Algarve maintains its golfing prestige for a third year in a row as the World Golf Awards Host Hotel. Surrounded by some of the best golf courses in the world, the Algarve really is a golfer’s paradise. As a result of Hilton Worldwide joining forces with the European as well as Asian Tour last year, this partnership has continued to see an array of the finest golfing experiences being offered at the hotel and has also seen the sponsorship of Golf Pro British-born Tyrrel Hatton. Conrad Algarve is honoured to be hosting another incredible year of the highly esteemed World Golf Awards. Joachim Hartl General Manager Conrad Algarve














At once cosmopolitan and rustic, the Algarve is a region that can be enjoyed either for a quiet or active holiday, according to individual taste. But it is the sporting opportunities that truly set it apart as a destination. One of the finest golfing destinations in Europe, the Algarve is regarded today as an elite venue by top professionals. The plans for the courses, mostly designed by internationally recognised golf-course architects, together with the superb landscapes in which they are located, satisfy the requirements of the most demanding enthusiasts, marking out the region as first-rate destination for golf. The favourable climate with more than 300 days of sun per year, allows the golf season to be extended over several months, bringing players from all over the world to the Algarve. The excellence on offer in the Algarve is only enriched by its great variety of trees, vegetation, its greens, tees and silence of

its surrounds, only to be broken by the ‘crack’ of the perfect shot. Irresistible. Among the factors that make the Algarve a top golfing destination are its environmental setting, quality courses, accessibility and professionally-run transport systems plus the entire infrastructure that goes into supporting them. There is a network of hotels, transfers and even the airlines themselves that make access easy and contribute to a pleasant and appealing stay. The Algarve continues to be the place chosen to host international competi-



tions, such as the Portugal Masters, one of the country’s top golf tournaments, the Algarve World Cup and the Taça das Nações. This only adds to the thrill of playing here. The Algarve: a friendly and easy-to-reach destination that offers the ‘perfect round’ all year long.

C E N T R A L A LG A R V E Created in the middle of truly dreamlike locations, many of the Algarve’s golf courses constitute settings of such great beauty that this, in itself, justifies a visit by some of the world’s best golfers. Surrounded by an extensive pine forest, the Quinta do Lago courses in Almancil are a veritable paradise on the edge of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. The Quinta do Lago Sul has already been the stage for the Portuguese Open on eight occasions. Also worth a mention is the San Lorenzo Golf Club, in the Ria Formosa, which has won many prizes, being nominated as one of the best courses in Europe. Another success story is the Vila Sol – Beach, Golf & Country Club in Vilamoura which, only eight months after it opened, hosted the Portugal Open for two years running. Surrounded by pine trees and waterfalls, the different Oceânico courses in Vilamoura provide every type of challenge, even for the most experienced of golfers. Also well-known to the world of golf, the Vale do Lobo, in Almancil, which has already been host to the Portuguese Open,

integrated in the professional European circuit, and the ‘Skins Game’. This resort is the home of the two most difficult and stunning golf courses in Europe: the Ocean Golf Course and the Royal Golf Course, where there is the famous 16th hole, without doubt, one of the world’s most famous settings for golf.

L E A R N TO P L AY Boasting the most sophisticated equipment and offering tuition by professionals certified by the Professional Golfers’ Association, the academies of the Algarve use innovative teaching methods, in several languages, to provide mini and intensive courses for beginners and improvement courses to help players of all levels develop their game. Training areas with tees leading onto greens specifically designed for coaching, or pitch and putt courses, are found throughout the Algarve, all in areas of great tranquillity and beautiful countryside. In many cases, the academies are attached to magnificent golf clubs, where there is a prevailing atmosphere of peace and quiet;

yet, they are, at the same time, sophisticated and welcoming places, with no shortage of the indispensable comforts and facilities that make for a healthy, enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

M O R E I N F O R M AT I O N If you want a fun-filled holiday, you will find the latest musical trends of Algarvian night- life and its hot spots an irresistible draw. The discotheques, marinas, casinos, bars and restaurants, many with open air seating, all offer a free and easy atmosphere to satisfy the most varied of tastes. During the day, there is also a lot to do: from theme parks to shopping centres and various cultural events, all guaranteed to leave you with unforgettable memories. If you are looking for a quieter holiday, you can opt for the refinement of thalassotherapy centres and spas, healthy breaks at thermal water centres or the peace of relaxation farms.

GOLF HOSPITALITY Over the past few decades, the success of golf tourism has risen significantly. Many golf tour operators around the world are tailoring their offers to the specific needs of golfers. Whether as the main motivation for a holiday or simply as a secondary activity, golf attracts millions of holidaymakers worldwide – and the numbers are growing all the time. The business of golf tourism is not only a revenue generator for golf facilities themselves through spending on green fees, golf equipment and cart rental, but also for a wide variety of travel, leisure and hospitality services, such as hotels, restaurants, retailers, car rental and airlines.

According to figures from KPMG, the volume of touristic golf bookings in 2015 generally increased compared to 2014. Some 80 per cent of all surveyed operators indicated that they had experienced an increase in the number of bookings year-on-year from 2014 to 2015. These results and the increasing demand for golf holidays suggest a continuous recovery of the golf travel industry following the lengthy economic crisis. As in previous years, the majority of trips booked through golf tour operators were four to seven days long. The proportion of longer trip bookings started to increase in



2014 compared to the years before, suggesting an increasing willingness of golf travellers to spend more time and money on their golfing holidays. Furthermore, according to 43 per cent of all survey respondents to KPMG, golf package prices increased in 2015, while 50 per cent indicated that prices have generally remained at a similar level compared to 2014. Spain and Portugal were named as the destinations with most significant increases in prices in 2015. Likewise, the UAE and the USA also registered some price increases. According to the surveyed golf tour operators, accessibility (including the availability of direct flights), package prices and the quality of the golf courses and facilities are the most important factors for golf travellers when choosing their golf holiday destination. While Spain and Portugal remain the two most popular golf destinations globally, South Africa, Morocco, the UAE, Southeast Asia (specifically Thailand and Vietnam) and Bulgaria were named among

popular emerging golf tourism hot spots in 2014. According to the surveyed golf tour operators, well-established locations such as the USA and Scotland remain ever-popular destinations for golf holidays. The most common golf travellers are still the Brits and the North Americans, although they often choose domestic trips too. Scandinavians (mainly Swedish), Germans and Danish travellers are also near the top of the list, with a strong interest in travelling abroad for golf. According to golf travel operators who participated in the survey, most book-

ings are made over the internet, by phone or e-mail. Despite its relatively low number, golfers still find it important to seek personal contact with agents for matters of inquiring additional information and advice. While only a few years ago most operators didn’t find the internet a viable option for golf trip bookings, the main trends see the emergence of improved online booking systems, as well as various smartphone and tablet applications. With changing customer needs, this direction is expected to gain importance in coming years. As for the timing of bookings, about half of the trips are booked one to six months prior to the travel date, while about 40 per cent are booked more than six months in advance (these are typically group bookings). Only approximately ten per cent of last year’s bookings were made within one month prior to travel. As the results of our survey show, 2015 was a successful year for golf tour operators. Worldwide, the number of bookings increased alongside increasing lengths of trip and greater spending. Golf travellers are exploring more destinations for their golf holidays and are now keener to travel beyond traditional golfing destinations.

FANTASTIC SAINT PETERSBURG WELCOMES YOU! Due to dynamic actions of the Government of Saint Petersburg focused on development of tourist industry, objects of city’s tourist infrastructure received a number of awards justifying its high international status and quality of services rendered. Opinions of tourists happen to be the most important assessment of the work done. We will keep on doing our best to ensure that travelling to Saint Petersburg provides true pleasure to guests in future and contributes to forming a bright and appealing image of the city where one wants to come back to over and over again. A.Mushkarev, Chairman, St. Petersburg Committee for tourism development


To stroll around royal park-and-palace ensembles St. Petersburg like an Empress wears a rich necklace — a necklace of royal summer residences located in the suburbs of the city. Peterhof impresses by its numerous fountains, cascades and park pavilions . The Catherine palace in Tsarskoe Selo is best known for the Golden Enfilade of state rooms that includes the world-famous Amber Room. Pavlovsk is a cozy royal palace with unique chinaware, and amazing landscape park.

To touch the Russian Imperial history Saint Petersburg is the city of the white nights, draw bridges, royal palaces, museums and theatres, the cultural capital of Russia. It is the second largest city in Russia and the third one in Europe (after Moscow and London). At 313, Saint Petersburg is quite young, yet the city has an impressive history. For a long time St. Petersburg remained the capital of the Russian Empire, and it was St. Petersburg that laid the foundation of socialist regime in the country

To get warm in winter The best opera and ballet performances, theatre and music festivals are performed at the season when the rivers and canals stand still, covered with the white armour of ice. Incredible Pancake week is a tasty period — to eat Russian dishes and to feel the spirit of Russia. To crown it all the museums in winter are not overcrowded and the prices in the hotels decrease. Winter is time for magnificent balls that allow their guests to feel themselves like an Emperor

To discover the city’s specialties Russia in miniature museum, the deepest Metro in the world, the most symmetrical street, the real Egyptian sphinx and much more… The presentation of tourist potential of St. Petersburg will be held on 8th November in the Russian Embassy in London in the framework of the exhibition World Travel Market, which opens from 7 to 9 November 2016.

Saint Petersburg restaurant festival-2016 From 01 to 30 November in Saint Petersburg the «Saint Petersburg restaurant festival-2016» will be held. Since its foundation St. Petersburg has become not only the capital city but also a kind of trendsetter in architecture, culture, history, and the art of cooking. Due to the fact that in the period of construction St. Petersburg the most famous and most talented European artists of the time were invited. With them our city began the tradition of cooking dishes from different European countries.

Chefs from France, Italy and Germany creatively reworked old recipes of Russian cuisine, so many Russian dishes and recipes have found an European tradition. Later the influence of Petersburg’s cuisine began spreading across the territory of Russia, contributing to the diversity of traditional recipes from various regions of the country. Nowadays we can confidently talk about the special Petersburg style of Russian cuisine imbued with the spirit of history, traditions, culinary experiments and innovations.

The program of the «Saint Petersburg restaurant festival-2016» includes themed dinners in restaurants, parties, workshops and master classes, shows in cooking the meals of Petersburg cuisine’s, activities for children and a special children’s menu, as well as exhibitions, competitions and much more. The full program of the «Saint Petersburg restaurant festival-2016» you can see on St. Petersburg Official City Guide www.visit-petersburg.ru

Festival of Lights Festival of Lights is becoming one of the most exciting gala events of Saint Petersburg in autumn. The festival brings together artists, painters and musicians and thousands of visitors who enjoy all patterns of light on different historical monuments. This autumn the festival takes place on November, 04-05th. The festival will bring to life miraculous breathtaking art by newest 3D-mapping and audiovisual technologies.

To feel the city’s soul Modern St. Petersburg, crisscrossed by numerous rivers and canals, stands on more than 100 islands, which are linked to one another by more than 400 bridges. This is why the city is often called “the Venice of the North”. Nearly every building in the downtown is considered to be a historic monument, hence the city’s definition — “open-air museum”. Its historical centre, palace and park ensembles are inscribed in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

Churches and cathedrals Saint Petersburg was planned as a Westoriented city and has always been renowned for its hospitality. Peter the Great encouraged foreigners, especially from Europe, to come to the new capital: they brought a new way of life, knowledge and traditions. To make foreigners feel comfortable in the city Peter the Great and his successors paid much attention to the construction of churches and cathedrals for people of various religions.

Though Saint Petersburg is known as a city of different creeds, it is the Orthodoxy that has long been the official religion of Russia. That is why special emphasis was laid on orthodox churches. The world’s best architects built churches and cathedrals in Saint Petersburg. Sublimity of St.Isaac’s Cathedrals, proportion of the Nikolsky (St.Nicholas’) Cathedral, smartness of the Church of Resurrection of Christ (Spas-na-Krovi) always attract visitors of the city. The beauty and splendor of their inner decorations make indelible impressions upon guests’ minds.

To immerse yourself in St. Petersburg romantics During the “white nights” the Petersburgers flock to the banks of the Neva to see the sun set. The “white nights” period lasts from May to July. Countless festivals and concerts are held in the parks and on the city’s squares and embankments: Scarlet Sails school leavers festival, River Carnival, Festival of Ice Crackers, Festivals of garden art. During such days the city marks its anniversary – on May 27th. Every day from May to October sometime after two o’clock in the morning the multi-tonne wings of the bridges swing gently upwards to let vessels on the river pass.

Following the scenery of the «War and Peace» «War and Peace» is a British-American historical period drama television serial first broadcast on BBC One on 3 January 2016. It is a six-part adaptation of «War and Peace» by famous Russian author Leo Tolstoy, written by Andrew Davies and directed by Tom Harper.
