Best Golf Course
Winner of the 2019 Best Golf Course award is the Dunluce Course at Royal Portrush, one of the crown jewels of Northern Ireland. The Dunluce Course at Royal Portrush played host to the 148th Open Championship in 2019 and was the star of the tournament. Featuring a spectacular course layout that includes new holes and an adjusted course routing, Royal Portrush is better than ever. The Dunluce Course at Royal Portrush earned our highest course rating in 2019 and currently holds the number 1 spot in our Top 10 rankings.
Best Golf Product
Winner of the 2019 Best Golf Product award is Adidas with their ForgeFiber BOA golf shoes. Everyone likes a new pair of shoes, but Adidas blew us away with the overall fit, comfort, and performance of the golf shoes. After testing multiple pairs of shoes throughout the year, the Adidas ForgeFiber BOA golf shoes drastically outperformed all other shoes on the market in all categories.
Best Golf App
Winner of the 2019 Best Golf App award is Golf Rival. We're all guilty of spending too much time on our phones, and Golf Rival only multiples the problem. This Player Vs. Player golf app is the most addictive we've ever seen. When you can't get out on the golf course, you can always turn to Golf Rival to play a few holes against friends or other players from around the world. Try it out, but don't see we didn't warn you that it's addictive!
Best Golf Resort
Winner of the 2019 Best Golf Resort award is Omni Barton Creek. This May Omni Barton Creek reopened following a $150 million renovation. Money well spent, the resort at Omni Barton Creek, is modern, sophisticated, and oh so luxurious. Omni Barton Creek features four 18-hole championship golf courses sure to challenge and please golfers of all abilities. Located in the heart of Austin, Texas Omni Barton Creek is the place to spend your next golf holiday!
Best New Golf Course
Winner of the 2019 Best New Golf Course award is the Great Waters course at Reynolds Lake Oconee. Reopened in October following an 18-month renovation, Jack Nicklaus and his design team did one heck of a job taking a great course and making it extraordinary!
