LANG CO, Vietnam (Sept. 23, 2019) — British sporting icon Sir Nick Faldo is offering two lucky golf fans the chance to ‘Live Like a Legend’ by joining him for a trip of a lifetime at Laguna Lang Co in Vietnam, a resort he calls ‘his paradise’.
The six-time Major winner, who is recognised as one of golf’s all time greats, launched the dream opportunity last week.
The winners will join Sir Nick at Laguna Lang Co, a 5-star Banyan Tree resort in Vietnam featuring a Faldo Design Signature golf course and two award-winning hotels (Banyan Tree Lang Co and Angsana Lang Co), during the week of the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final in March 2020.
Staying in one of Sir Nick’s favourite Banyan Tree Residence Villas, the winner and their friend will get to experience what makes Laguna Lang Co such a special resort, whilst playing golf, receiving spa treatments, enjoying the Faldo Series tournament action, evening entertainment and watching golf clinics given by Sir Nick.
To earn a chance to travel to Vietnam, all golf fans need to do is head to www.lagunalangco.com/en/golf/live-like-a-legend/ to enter, telling Sir Nick what traits and characteristics they believe makes a legend. The lucky winner, who will share the experience with a partner, family member or friend of their choice, will be announced by Sir Nick on his Twitter page later in the year.
Located within the greater Laguna Lang Co integrated resort, just 50km from the famous and historic city of Hue, Laguna Golf Lang Co is an award-winning layout, which has been designed with links-like characteristics adjacent to the East Vietnam Sea, set against an amphitheatre-like mountainous backdrop and carved through ancient rice paddies.
Earlier this year Laguna Golf Lang Co earned ‘Signature’ status within the six-time Major winner’s Faldo Design portfolio, representing the premium tier of his golf course creations. The Sir Nick Faldo Signature designation is awarded to course designs which have a particularly close relationship with the man himself and which reflect his personal commitment to design quality, environmental sustainability and maintenance standards.
“Laguna Golf Lang Co is a very special place,” said Sir Nick 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, recognising the huge potential on the Asian junior golf circuit. Helping to reach more juniors around the world, by introducing them to the game through grassroots initiatives, is at the heart of the Faldo Series’ expansion to other corners of the globe.
“We are hugely 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, and 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 speaks so highly of the resort.”
