Pelican Hill Resort also received widespread acclaim for its commitment to the environment
A Californian golf resort has been named the best in the world by the readers of a luxury travel magazine.
Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach was ranked number one in a list of the top 121 luxurious golf retreats in a recent issue of Conde Nast Traveler.
In a readers' poll, the Californian course was the only Golden state destination to achieve a perfect score in the course design category and access category.
The idyllic venue also received top scores in rooms, food and dining, overall design and activities and facilities to achieve the world's best rating of 96.6.
It is thought the validation will attract a whole new wave of golf tourists to the resort.
However, first they want to be sure to arrange some
sports travel insurance cover. So if you're polishing down the clubs ahead of getting active on holiday, get the cover you need from World First.
