British sporting icon Sir Nick Faldo is offering two golf fans a special package at Laguna Lang Co in Vietnam. They will get the chance to join the six-time Major winner, recognized as one of golf’s all time greats, on the golf course at the Laguna Lang Co.
A trip of a lifetime with Nick Faldo
The winners will join Sir Nick during the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final in March 2020. The five-star Banyan Tree resort in Vietnam features a Faldo Design Signature golf course. It also has two award-winning hotels : the Banyan Tree Lang Co and Angsana Lang Co.
Staying in one of Sir Nick’s favorite Banyan Tree Residence Villas, the winner will experience what makes it a special resort. Aside from playing golf, the guests will also receive spa treatments, enjoy the Faldo Series tournament action, and watch golf clinics given by Sir Nick.
To join, golf fans must click here and tell Sir Nick what traits and characteristics they believe makes a legend. The winner, with their plus one of choice, will be announced by Sir Nick on his Twitter later this year.
An award-winning golf course
Located within the greater Laguna Lang Co integrated resort, Laguna Golf Lang Co is an award-winning layout; with links-like characteristics adjacent to the East Vietnam Sea and set against a mountainous backdrop carved through ancient rice paddies.
Earlier this year the golf course earned ‘Signature’ status within the six-time Major winner’s Faldo Design portfolio. This represents the premium tier of his golf course creations.
The Sir Nick Faldo Signature designation is awarded to course designs which have a particularly close connection to Sir Nick himself; and which reflect his personal commitment to design quality, environmental sustainability and maintenance standards.
The Faldo Series Asia Grand Final
“Laguna Golf Lang Co is a very special place.” Sir Nick said upon unveiling the contest. “It’s a location I call paradise. It’s undoubtedly one of the very best that Asia has to offer and a design of which I am particularly proud.”
The course is also the current host venue for the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final for the next few years. Sir Nick Faldo’s global junior series expanded into Asia in 2006. It wants to help reach more juniors around the world by introducing them to the game. This is at the heart of the Faldo Series’ expansion.
ONE OF THE GREATEST GOLFERS
“We are proud of the relationship our resort has with Sir Nick. He’s one of the legends of the game; and has played a significant role in the success of Laguna Golf Lang Co and putting it on the global golfing map,” said Adam Calver, Director of Golf at Laguna Lang Co.
“With world-class facilities and hospitality here at the resort, our winner will not be disappointed. We look forward to showing them what makes Banyan Tree Villas and Laguna Golf Lang Co one of the finest golf experiences in world golf, and why Sir Nick Faldo speaks so highly of the resort.”
