The event will be run by Melvin restaurant of the Berasategui firm and will bring together more than 90 international golf tourism operators with political representatives and agents of the island’s tourism sector
Las Terrazas de Abama, the luxury tourist complex operated by My Way Hotels & Resorts in Guía de Isora, will host on May 20 the official inauguration of the IAGTO Tenerife Golf 2019 Trophy, a social and gastronomic event that will gather more than 150 people in the facilities of this luxury resort.
This tournament will gather on the island, thanks to the efforts made by the Tenerife Golf brand of the Island Council, from May 20 to 23, about 90 tour operators from 26 countries who can get to know Tenerife’s golf offer as a whole , as well as its cultural and tourist resources. This is the fifth event of this tournament of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) in Spain, after visiting the Costa del Sol, Costa Brava, Costa Blanca and Costa Cálida in previous years.
To welcome these international operators, Las Terrazas de Abama, where some of them stay, has prepared a special evening with a cocktail and a dinner that will be offered by Melvin restaurant of Martín Berasategui, recognized this year in the ranking of El Tenedor as the best Canarian restaurant.
It will be a casual meeting with a menu that Diego Dato, the chef of this establishment, has organized around different appetizers and a barbecue where they will roast meats and fish, and that will combine with a special sample of rice and noodle, giving everything Canarian aroma.
This atmosphere is studied so that the networking of these operators especially flows with the different institutional representatives and agents of the tourist sector of the island who are also invited to this event.
IAGTO is the leading association in the industry, and has more than 2,500 golf tour operators, golf resorts, hotels, golf courses, operators, airlines, tourism and media offices and business partners in more than 100 countries. Its objective is to help its members to develop their business more quickly and promote the development of golf tourism around the world, which is why it organizes a meeting every year so that they can know in detail the most emerging golf destinations.
Tenerife Golf offers golfers 8 courses and 2 pitch and putt distributed in the north and south of the island. Tecina Golf is also part of the brand, a course designed by Donald Steel and located on the island of La Gomera. Each one proposes a completely different way of enjoying this sport. The beauty of the fields of Tenerife, designed by figures such as Dave Thomas, Severiano Ballesteros, John Jacobs, or Donald Steel, is evident in its sand bunkers or in its impressive water obstacles.
Abama Golf, which has recently been considered the best resort in Europe by the prestigious publication Golf Digest, will participate in this event with the pre and post fam trip of the tour operators, who usually extend their stays to enjoy ‘testing’ the different fields of the destinations they visit.
