The Vale Resort voted "Most Enjoyable Golf Course"
March 4, 2011

The Vale Resort in Wales was recognised as the 'UK 's Most Enjoyable Golf Course' at a prestigious awards ceremony last night. Chosen by a panel of experts, over fellow finalist The Belfry, The Vale picked up the accolade at the inaugural 59 Club Awards Dinner, established to recognise excellence in golf.

59 club's independent panel of testers was responsible for picking the winner of the award from over 50 courses. After whittling the finalists down to two, The Vale's Wales National course and the Brabazon at The Belfry, the panel decided that the Welsh course was ultimately their favourite to play in the whole of the UK .

The Vale Resort's Golf Operations Manager Clive Coombs says "We are absolutely thrilled with tonight's win, especially when you look at the standard of the courses that we were up against. At The Vale we are, of course, committed to ensuring that our courses play to the very highest standard, but it has also always been absolutely crucial to us that our members and visitors are able to come and simply enjoy the experience that we offer here - I'm delighted that our efforts have paid off.
