Modry Las Golf Club has reaffirmed its position as one of the top golfing venues in central Europe after being named Poland’s best golf course at the inaugural World Golf Awards. The West Pomerania Gary Player designed-course beat off competition from six other Polish venues to claim the title which was presented at a glittering awards ceremony in Portugal.
Following six months of voting by golf tourism professionals, the award announcement was a fitting way for the Polish club to bring to a close a spectacular golfing season. After collecting the coveted award, the resort’s International Marketing Director said she was thrilled to receive Poland’s national prize at the gala evening.
“After celebrating our fifth anniversary, launching a new website and doubling our on-site accommodation, what better way to round off a terrific year than being voted the best golf course in Poland at the World Golf Awards?” asked Pamela Gromadzki.
She continued: “What made this award special was the way it was voted for. These awards were launched to celebrate excellence in golf tourism around the globe. As such, we received votes from central Europe, Scandanvia and western Europe, but also from further afield such as the US. This award cements Modry Las as an international resort that offers a distinctive and exceptional golfing experience.”
This latest accolade will be added to a bulging trophy cabinet at the resort, which became the only Polish entry in Golf Journal, Germany’s leading golf magazine’s Top 100 list of European golf courses earlier this year. It was also selected in Golf World’s 2009 and 2011 Top 100s and named Poland’s best golf course by the country’s leading golf website www.Polishgolf.pl.
World Golf Awards Managing Director Chris Frost said: “It is with tremendous pride we present the title of Poland’s Best Golf Course to Modry Las. With its stunning backdrop, the West Pomeranian course utilises some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe to create a truly unique golfing experience.”
He continued: “Opening its doors just five years ago, Modry Las has become one of the most sought-after golfing experiences in Europe. And, with the recent introduction of a specially designed golf academy and the opening of three stylish Swiss-designed self-catering cottages, our voters have recognised the course as the best in class.”
Already boasting an 18-hole Gary Player-designed championship course and a Peter Bronson Golf Academy, Modry Las has seen continual improvements since its official opening in 2009. For instance, new Garden Suites have received great praise and the development of a stunning new nine-hole course indicates this pace of change is not letting up.
At the World Golf Awards, Modry Las received votes from leading tourism professionals and consumers from around the world, which Gromadzki said has given her team a timely boost: “In a busy, competitive marketplace, the amount of votes cast for Modry Las was extremely encouraging and only serves to reinvigorate our efforts to create one of the best golf resort experiences there is.”
