Assuming you’ve now recovered from that absolute stinker of a pun we just had to force into the headline, we’ve got much more welcome information to share. Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club, one of Anguilla’s most luxurious properties, is carrying a well-deserved accolade into the new year: the coveted title of “Golf Resort of the Year”, as chosen by Caribbean Journal.
In a part of the world increasingly obsessed with golf, with an idyllic climate and no shortage of prestige courses, Anguilla now stands out amidst the competition with the exceptional golf facilities at the Aurora. The resort boasts a signature, Greg-Norman-designed 18-hole championship course and a newer 9-hole short course (Avalon Links). Both feature stunning views of Rendezvous Bay, as well as robust amenities: two indoor hitting bays, a high-tech golf academy, and a brand new clubhouse opening soon at Avalon.
While trends like eco-tourism and generational travel remain constant, golf tourism is a steadily growing and lucrative market. The global golf market is valued at at least 20 billion USD, and it’s only growing. On the character of this market, Mrs. Stacey Liburd, Anguilla’s Director of Tourism, summed up Anguilla’s position well: “The golf market is a resilient, year-round travel segment and Anguilla is ideally positioned to provide golf enthusiasts with an exceptional golf experience,”
Whether you’re a golfer or not, it certainly doesn’t hurt that a region-leading golf course also just happens to be on the grounds of one of Anguilla’s very best resorts, known for its incredible beachfront, farm-to-table food, and lush grounds.
2024 is shaping up to be a big year for golf in the Caribbean, and Anguilla is leading the pack. Whether you’re travelling with your caddy or your family, we look forward to seeing you on the fairway.
