Memories of Glorious Goodwood

Voters were asked for their scores on five categories; viewing experience, facilities, food and beverages, atmosphere and value for money. The courses were split into three geographical regions and the winners were selected by the highest overall average score across all categories.

The results saw 21 racecourses scoring over 4.5 out of five in any particular category, highlighting the hard work that racecourses have been putting into maximising customer experience.

Goodwood proved popular among respondents, with one member saying “This is the 53rd racecourse I have visited and one I will be putting at the top of my list to revisit. The facilities were excellent and the staff friendly and helpful.”
