We are happy to announce that The Bushmills Inn has won a prestigious Golf Tourism Award at the IGTOA National Golf Tourism Conference & Gala Irish Golf Awards 2017. It’s the greatest assembly of Irish Golf Tourism Industry professionals in the country, providing unique insights into the golf industry in Ireland as well as rewarding excellence in golf tourism through The Gala Irish Golf Awards. The event was held on 22nd and 23rd October in The Trump International Golf Links, Co Clare. 

Launched in 1996, the IGTOA represents Ireland’s primary golf tour operators. Ireland is renowned for its beautiful and impressive selection of fine golf courses with thousands of passionate golfers travelling to the emerald island to enjoy our leading golf courses each year. The main goal of The Ireland Golf Tour Operator Association (IGTOA) is to celebrate and acknowledge the Irish golf tourism industry. It’s the 20th year anniversary of the awards and as a special treat, the IGTOA added an extra three categories to the award ceremony to further celebrate the industry on this special occasion. The three new award categories were Best Service Provider, Golf Course and Best Customer Experience for Property.

The Bushmills Inn has been awarded ‘The 2017 IGTOA Best Customer Experience Property Award’, which was announced during the Gala Black Tie event. Our very own hotel manager, Alan Walls, expressed his delight following the good news, “Firstly, I would like to thank the IGTOA for the tremendous work that they do in the promotion of Irish golf tourism and of the whole of Ireland as a world class destination. I would also like to thank the IGTOA board members for their unfaltering commitment over the years to Irish golf and tourism and for considering The Bushmills Inn as worthy of this very prestigious award.”

“I must also thank all the Golf Tour Operators and Business Partners for their hard work and continued support over the years and we will endeavour to continue providing top class facilities and services to all your clients. I would also like to pay tribute to the enormous contributions made by the whole team at the Hotel, without whom, none of this would have been possible.”

Shane O’Donoghue, the CEO of Niche Media and the familiar host of CNN’s golf programme, Living Golf, hosted the event and announced the winners.
