Tewkesbury Park is fastest-rising in GB&I Resorts Top 100

15 JANUARY 2020 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TEWKESBURY, GLOUCESTERSHIRE  – Five-star family-run golf hotel Tewkesbury Park is the fastest-rising in the new Top 100 Golf Resorts in GB & Ireland, published every two years by Golf World magazine.

It leaped from #84 in the previous rankings, to #57 in this year’s list, a rise of 27 places – well ahead of any other resort.

Tewkesbury Park was also named among GB & Ireland’s Top 30 Luxury Golf Resorts in the Top 100 feature, which appears in the January 2020 issue of the magazine.

The news follows soon after Tewkesbury Park was named among Britain’s Top 100 Hotels by The Sunday Times, in October 2019 – an accolade shared by just three other British golf resorts, including Gleneagles.

After being named the UK & Ireland’s Best Hotel for Weddings, Parties and Special Occasions by publishers Condé Nast Johansens in late 2018, and listed in National Club Golfer magazine’s Top 100 GB & I Golf Resorts rankings in early 2019, Tewkesbury Park has quickly become one of the UK’s most acclaimed golf resorts after its recent £10m refurbishment program.

“To gain such recognition so quickly after our relaunch is a source of great pride for the team here” said Tewkesbury Park’s General Manager, Patrick Jones. “The McIntosh family has transformed Tewkesbury Park in the last five years, and their passion for golf is obvious to every visitor who comes here.

“Golfers often remark, after staying here, how refreshing it is to be at a truly independent hotel, where everything from the rooms to the food to the staff is presented in a uniquely Tewkesbury Park way.

“It’s hard to describe, so the best thing is for golfers and their friends to come and see for themselves. Our golf course, prepared by Paul Hathaway and his team, features some of the best greens in the west of England, and we are a PGA tournament venue in 2020”

At the resort’s heart is The Deerpark, a 6,554 Par 72 golf course designed by Frank Pennink on a 200-acre site adjacent to the town’s historic War Of The Roses battlefields. In 2016 it was refurbished by Peter McEvoy OBE, the unbeaten GB&I Walker Cup team Captain and amateur golf icon who turned to golf course design, working with world-class golf agronomists Turfgrass.

With two golf courses, 93 bedrooms including nine luxurious historic suites which offer the ultimate in comfort, plus comprehensive leisure and spa facilities, two restaurants including the highly-rated Mint, and versatile meeting spaces for up to 200 people, Tewkesbury Park is the complete golf resort, offering golf breaks with distinction in a perfect balance of memorable golf, memorable food, and memorably different accommodation.

Original Penguin Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith Captures Sony Open

Perfect Win. Perfect Clothes. Perfect Fit.

 

(Miami, FL January 14, 2020) — Original Penguin Golf, a division of Perry Ellis
International, Inc., would like to congratulate brand ambassador Cameron Smith for
winning the 2020 Sony open for his first individual PGA Tour victory and second victory
overall.

“We congratulate Cameron for his thrilling and emotional come-from-behind playoff
victory,” said Jack Voith, President of the Golf Division of Perry Ellis International. “With his home country of Australia in the middle of an unprecedented bushfire crisis, Cameron showed the world his true grit, determination and how special a player and person he is, raising over $10,000 to fight the fires. We are proud to have Cameron as an Original Penguin brand ambassador.”

“I realize that Australia is doing it tough right now and the focus is probably not on my golf for good reason,” stated Smith. “It’s good to do something good, and hopefully it gave a few people a reason to smile for a moment or two.”

With the win, Smith, a key member of the International Presidents Cup team, propels up to fifth in the FedExCup standings, secures his TOUR card for two more seasons and gains a berth in the Masters while placing himself in a good position for Olympic qualification. “I definitely want to be there in Japan and want to wear the green and gold as much as I can,” added Smith.
