This prestigious honour was announced at a Gala luncheon and presentation ceremony at the Celtic Manor Golf Resort on Wednesday (Jan 7), where Club Captain Richard Ormond received the award on behalf of the Club.
Established in 1888, Tenby is widely regarded as the birthplace of golf in Wales, as well as one of its fi nest Championship links courses. Tenby has been particularly recognised for its vision and modern approach to golf in the current fi nancial climate; specifi cally, the completion of fi ve major projects aimed at increasing revenue generation, as well as improving the customer experience and facilities available for visitors and members alike.
In addition to the World Ranked Championship Links Course Tenby now also offers a full range of facilities to appeal to golfers of all abilities, their families and provides 7 en-suite twin bedrooms for Play and Stay breaks. The Club was also recognised for its work in the last year to protect part of the Dune structure on the Golf Course/beach shoreline in conjunction with the Welsh Government and local conservation organisations.
Club Secretary David Hancock said: “This award is a great honour for the Club and recognises the fact that although historic and steeped in tradition, Tenby is very much a forward thinking and progressive Club with a team of dedicated volunteers and staff who have worked very hard over the last few years in recognising and addressing the issues that have affected most Golf Clubs worldwide since the fi nancial downturn.”
