Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort receives prestigious 2013 Gold Tee Award from Meetings & Conventions magazine

DESTIN, FL, July 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort was awarded the 2013 Gold Tee Award from Meetings & Conventions magazine. This highly respected award is given to outstanding golf and meeting properties worldwide. Winners of the Gold Tee Award were nominated and selected by the readers of Meetings & Conventions based on their overall excellence.

What makes Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort different from other destinations and hotels is the combination of four championship courses, more than 65,000-square-feet of meeting space, nationally acclaimed on-site meeting support, beautiful accommodations from the beach to the bay, and gracious southern hospitality, all within the gates of one property.

"The meeting industry's most highly-sought and respected critics, the readers of M&C have again chosen the world's finest. M&C's  readership, of 50,000 corporate, association, and incentive meeting professionals, know quality when they experience it - and made their votes count, selecting the golf properties they believed to be most outstanding." states Kirk Lewis, Meetings & Conventions' Publisher. "Our industry salutes the 70 properties worldwide that have distinguished themselves in this industry and earned the Gold Tee honor."

This recognition follows the recent news that Golfweek, one of the country's leading golf publications, selected Sandestin's Burnt Pine Golf Club as one of the 2013 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.
