'Over the last few years we have been working hard to improve the condition of our golf course. We have just finalized a very meticulous investment plan to upgrade our facilities and this award is a great incentive for the entire Valderrama team. We pride ourselves in offering some of the best manicured greens and fairways in the world but knowing that visitors also value the guest experience we provide is certainly a great motivation for all of us. We will not take this recognition for granted and we will continue to improve both the facilities and the service we provide', said Javier Reviriego, General Manager Real Club Valderrama.
