Brora Golf Club was delighted to be nominated for an award at last week’s 2018 Scottish Golf Tourism Awards.
Brora, Montrose Golf Links, Scotscraig and The Duke’s, St Andrews were all nominated in the category for best Value for Money for a course priced between £50 – £100 for visitors.
It was The Duke’s that took the honours, but another award nomination was still a notable achievement for all at Brora.
Club president Andy Stewart said: “With so many great venues being eligible for nomination in this category, I think this is a great achievement for Brora. I believe this nomination reflects that we have one of the best examples of James Braid’s work. It is also a testament to the great work being done by both the staff and committee. We will endeavour to go one better next year.”
At the showpiece event at the Fairmont St Andrews resort, Kingsbarns Golf Links was named the provider of Scotland’s Best Golf Experience for the fourth time in the last five years.
The acclaimed Fife facility took the top prize at the Awards – the climax to the third annual Scottish Golf Tourism Week.
Scottish Golf Tourism Week, which attracted more than 90 leading buyers from across the world to experience Scotland’s diverse golf product, comes as the industry pursues ambitions to grow the value of the golf tourism industry in Scotland from £286m in 2016 to £300m by 2020.
