The World Golf Awards has announced its winners for 2020, and IMG Clubs were honoured
with six prestigious accolades, including Ba Na Hills Golf Club in Danang, once again recognised as the Best Golf Course in Asia.

Although the official awards ceremony could not take place in Dubai due to international travel restrictions, the World Golf Awards continues to showcase the best golf courses globally and is recognised as one of the most coveted awards in the golf industry.

We are incredibly proud to announce the following IMG Clubs won awards this year:

  • Ba Na Hills Golf Club: Asia’s Best Golf Course
  • Ba Na Hills Golf Club: Vietnam’s Best Golf Course
  • Chee Chan Golf Resort: Thailand’s Best Golf Course
  • Dreamland Golf Club: Azerbaijan’s Best Golf Course
  • Royal Bled: Slovenia’s Best Golf Course
  • Zala Springs Golf Resort: Hungary’s Best Golf Course

This is the fourth consecutive year that Ba Na Hills Golf Club has won the Best Course in Asia and Best Course in Vietnam. Opened in 2016 and designed by Luke Donald in association with IMG, Ba Na Hills Golf Club is also managed by IMG and is now globally recognised as one of the world’s great golf courses. A fantastic achievement as well for Chee Chan Golf Resort winning Thailand’s Best Golf Course for the first time. Since opening in 2018, Chee Chan Golf Resort has set new standards of excellence and is now clearly
recognized as a superstar of Thailand golf.

Zala Springs Golf Resort won Hungary’s Best Golf Course for the second consecutive year. The resort is recognised as one of the best golf experiences in Europe and has a stunning location close to Lake Balaton, the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe.

Paul Burley, Senior Vice President, IMG Golf Course Services commented: “We are very proud of the high-quality clubs that we have in our global portfolio, and for IMG clubs to receive top honours in six awards categories is outstanding, and a testament to the incredible commitment of our partners at each club. It’s a challenging year, and I would like to thank the World Golf Awards for their support of the golf industry, and for continuing to reward the best golf courses around the world during this unprecedented time”.
