Best Emerging Golf Destinations
Nicknamed the “Island of Eternal Spring,” and even referred to as the “Pearl of the Atlantic, Madeira, an autonomous Portuguese island off the northwest coast of Africa, claimed the coveted title of World’s Best Emerging Golf Destination.
Aside from the stunning landscape, the fact that Madeira features golf courses by acclaimed designers Severiano Ballesteros, Cabell B Robinson, and Robert Trent Jones, Sr, probably sharpened its competitive edge.
