Donnafugata Golf Resort is one of the leading nominees to be named as the ‘Most Prestigious Sporting Venue 2015’ when the winners are announced at a lavish prize-giving ceremony in London on September 18.
After 6 years Prestigious Star Awards, remains the only global luxury venue industry awards, with only a tenth of the 2,000-plus reputable venues being nominated for the 20 award categories. Public voting takes place in July with the winners then announced in the autumn.
Prestigious Venues brings together a selection of the world’s leading event venues in one portfolio. Donnafugata Resort has good chances to become the first Italian golfing venue to be invited to join the exclusive group earlier in the year.
The Resort is home to a luxury 900m2 Spa with indoor pool, hydro-massage, sauna, steam bath and gym areas, with a range of seasonally-selected treatments available.
Host of the 2011 Sicilian Open and featuring two 18-hole championship courses, Donnafugata Golf Resort & SPA has won widespread praise from the golf industry since opening in 2010, and its new Darren Clarke Centre of Excellence – the only one of its kind on the continent featuring Europe’s new Ryder Cup captain.
Donnafugata Golf Resort & SPA also has 202 rooms, two swimming pools, a private beach and three restaurants offering a broad selection of ‘0km food’ locally-sourced gastronomic delights, well accompanied by perfect Sicilian wines to enhance flavour.
