International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) has highlighted the Canarian course as the first Spanish resort to achieve this recognition, after a long tour of audits during the last two decades.
IAGTO has just distinguished Abama Golf (Tenerife), the sports complex located in Guía de Isora, in the south of Tenerife, as the first golf course in Spain and the Canary Islands to receive Quality Assured Certification.
Peter Walton, executive director of IAGTO, has said: “after launching the Quality Assured program in October last year, we consider it appropriate for Abama Golf to be the first golf course in Spain to receive this award.”
After having performed more than 250 golf tourism audits in the last twenty years, IAGTO has recognized the level and qualification of this golf course when receiving golf visitors, both national and international.
“During the IAGTO Quality Assured Certification process, we conclude that the quality of the Guía de Isora golf course is backed by its excellent customer service in all areas. There is no doubt that Abama Golf is perfectly designed for the golf visitor for the first time and that every effort has been made to offer the best possible experience both on and off the course”, adds Walton.
Abama Golf, created by renowned golf designer Dave Thomas, hosts an 18-hole championship course with more than 300 species of subtropical plants and spectacular views of La Gomera island and the Atlantic Ocean.
The resort where it is located is constantly growing, consolidating it among lovers of this sport, as one of the best golf resorts in Europe.
