Magnus Lagerlöf, CEO of Ekerum Resort Öland and colleague Andreas Nordin was in Spanish La Manga to attend the International World Hall World Golf Awards 2018. for Ekerum was named in four categories: Sweden's best golf hotel, Sweden's best golf course, Europe's best event arena and the best eco-golf facility in the world.
And last night, it became clear that Ekerum was named The most ecological golf course in the world and also Best Golf Hotel in Sweden, which was won for the fifth consecutive year.
"To win only four courses in Europe and the rest, for example, the United States, China and Oman, sheds light on Ekerum, Öland and Kalmar County, says Magnus Lagerlöf.
"This year, we visited a Hong Kong golf club that wanted to study how we work with environmental issues to realize the size of this award on the international stage.We also noticed how you choose to be a member of Ekerum.It may not be so strange, we, the Swedes, are ready to sort and try to make the least possible impact on our environment, so why not make an active choice even in relation to your golf club, Lagerlöf continues.
For Ekerum The Öland Resort did not win the Best Eventaraa award in Europe, as they thought Lagerlöf was a bit bad. But, on the other hand, he points out that the factory has evolved into a complete arena, as five football teams have chosen Ekerum for training camps and international matches.
– Sometimes it can be "dangerous" to win prizes, one can relax and take it for granted. That Ekerum won the award for Best Golf Hotel in Sweden every year since 2014 is unbelievable given the competition with big chains and small boutique hotels. This shows that our team does a great job every day in their hosting, "concluded Lagerlöf.
