The Global Search For The Best Has Ended!

The on-line poll for the 2020/21 Global Golf Awards is over! The hunt for the best in the business concluded at mid-night on July 31, 2020 with a total count of 107,360 valid votes cast.

“The final count was simply incredible … we had expected very good support for this prestigious programme but it exceeded our expectations,” said Alice Ho, Business Manager for the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the owner of the award programme.

The Global Golf Awards replaces that internationally recognised Asian Golf Awards which had a 20-year run. “Given the growing importance of golf in the Asia Pacific, we felt a need to grow this industry recognition event into a global one,” said Ho.

The search for the world’s best was conducted via an on-line poll and covered the following regions:

The regions covered include the following:

  •    East Asia (Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China)
  •    Southeast Asia
  •    Oceania (Australia, New Zealand Pacific Islands)
  •    South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal)
  •    Middle East/Africa
  •    Europe including United Kingdom and Russia
  •    Canada
  •    North America
  •    South America
  •    Mexico

The preliminary results will be published in the September edition of ASIAN GOLF with the final results scheduled to be announced at the Global Golf Awards Gala Banquet in Haikou, Hainan on March 18, 2021. This grand event will be part of the World Golf Expo to be staged in Haikou on March 16 – 18, 2021 – www.worldgolfexpo.com

“On behalf of the management team at the Asia Pacific Golf Group, I would like to thank everyone who voted in the polls – your support is most appreciated,” Ho concluded.
