The "Swiss Golf Awards" is intended as an award for extraordinary merits in connection with services in the context of golf. Among the different categories, Swiss golfers distribute their vote to the preferred golf clubs or service partners.
The voting format is unique in that it is not a specific jury but the golfers in Switzerland who have the opportunity to vote for their golf club as well as various service providers such as restaurants, travel providers and airlines from their point of view.
The award thus reflects the Swiss golf community and makes the choice all the more valuable.
