Resort General Manager, Daniel Pereira, is “absolutely delighted” with the news, saying: “The very best aspect of winning such an award is that it recognizes the hard work and achievements of not just a few, but of each and every member of our dedicated team, right across the resort.”
Iain Marr, Golf Development Manager for Kohler Resorts, accepted the award, saying: “Scotland is blessed with some fabulous and world-renowned resorts, so it is especially rewarding to be voted ‘the best’ – and even more so as it is by our peers.”
