This season is ending the way it started – Sand Valley Golf Resort is now officially ranked as a TOP100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe by Golf World UK. This follows the earlier 2018 Rankings as Nr.1 golf course in Poland by both Golf Digest and top100golfcourses.com.
“Poland is a relative newcomer to the world of golf tourism and, as such, has yet to shrug off all of the preconceptions associated with being a former Eastern Bloc country. However, we can guarantee you’ll be pleasantly surprised if you venture there for a golf break. The quality of the courses will surprise you, as will the weather for the most part, and so will the wide range of top-quality accommodation. Leading the country’s charge is Sand Valley. Located in Gdansk, the course made its debut in our Golf World Top100 Courses Continental Europe ranking last year, coming in at 82nd. Featuring wide fairways, vast waste bunker and funky greens reminiscent of the controversial and some say borderline extreme putting surfaces found on the Castle Course at St Andrews. It’s firm, fast-running inland links of the highest caliber, with many memorable and visually exciting holes. The on-site accommodation is a collection of luxury villas that the resort says are ‘Scandinavian in design and American in spirit’. All are located within a short walk of the first tee and the clubhouse, and accommodate from six to 12 people”

“To be recognized not only as a TOP 100 golf course but as a Resort as well means a lot to us. This means finally our whole team is being noticed and rewarded. As a Resort we are very proud of our clubhouse staff, the food our restaurant serves and the magnificent villas our guests stay in. It has been my personal belief for a long time that a perfect golf holiday means you also have to tick all the boxes outside the golf course. Along with our fantastic staff who create a truly unique holiday experience, we will continue to improve and grow while keeping our family atmosphere going into 2019 and beyond.

“This Ranking comes at a time when Sand Valley is changing fast. We are seeing new guests from new regions visiting us at an amazing rate. Being ranked as TOP100 Golf Resort by Golf World makes our work easier and attracts new people to visit Sand Valley and book their flights to Gdansk, Poland. This ranking means that Poland is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a golf destination and we at Sand Valley are happy to spread the word – “Come and visit Poland – you will not be disappointed!”
