Managed by the world’s leading golf management company, Troon, Yas Links Abu Dhabi has been awarded International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) Golf Experience of the Year Award for Gulf States.

The 20th annual IAGTO Golf Tourism Awards was focused on recognising the achievements of golf courses and hotels that delivered the best possible experience to visiting golf travellers in the past year.

The winners were announced at the Gala Dinner on the final night of the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) in Marrakech, Morocco, on 17th October, attended by over 1,000 guests from the golf industry.

Opened in 2010, Yas Links Abu Dhabi is currently ranked #44 in Golf Digest’s Top 100. The par 72 18-hole championship course, designed by Kyle Phillips, is one of the few links courses in the region and also boasts a 9-hole Par-3 academy course, floodlit practice facilities and luxurious clubhouse.

"It is with great pride that we accept the IAGTO Golf Experience of the Year Award for Gulf States; an outstanding honour which represents the tremendous efforts the team at Yas Links Abu Dhabi have consistently delivered to ensure our guests have the best possible experience when visiting.
