DESTIN, FL, May 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort was awarded the 2012 Gold Tee Award from Meetings & Conventions Magazine. This highly respected award is given to outstanding golf and meeting properties worldwide.
What makes Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort different from other destinations and hotels is the combination of four championship courses, nationally acclaimed on-site meeting support, more than 65,000-square-feet of meeting space, beautiful accommodations from the beach to the bay, and gracious southern hospitality, all within the gates of one property.
"Sandestin has long been a favorite destination for groups, associations and businesses," said Penny Jackson, director of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. "With consumer confidence and economic conditions improving, we're seeing more types of groups return and enjoy all the resort has to offer, including our outstanding golf amenities and packages."
"Meetings & Conventions' readership of 50,000 corporate, incentive and association meeting planners know quality when they experience it," said magazine publisher Kirk Lewis.
This recognition follows the recent news that Golfweek, one of the country's leading golf publications, selected Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort as one of the 2012 Best Courses You Can Play. Sandestin offers excellent golf rates along with enticing benefits to groups. With four championship course options for the fearless, the beginner, or the family all in one place, Sandestin is well suited for any size group in all seasons of the year.
