Laguna Golf Bintan unveiled its upgraded oceanfront golf course at its grand reopening event, graced by golfing legend and Laguna Golf ambassador Sir Nick Faldo.
The event, which took place November 3-4, saw 110 invited guests and regional golf media descend on the course for a media conference, exclusive golf clinic by Faldo, 18-hole gourmet golf tournament, and evening cocktails followed by gala awards dinner.
During the 18-hole gourmet golf tournament, a Hole-in-One prize of a one-bedroom seafront apartment in Cassia Bintan worth SGD255,000 (approx US$182,300) was awarded.
Faldo said, “I’ve been a big fan of the Banyan Tree brand and visiting Banyan Tree Phuket resort 25 years ago. After designing the Laguna Lăng Cô golf course, I am proud to be the ambassador of the Laguna Golf brand. It is my first time here in Laguna Bintan and I’m blown away by the natural beauty of this resort.”
Following the renovations, the course opens as an 18-hole championship golf course.
“The extensive upgrade over the past 12 months had brought the course to a higher level complementing Banyan Tree and Angsana resorts in Laguna Bintan,” said Ravi Chandran, Banyan Tree senior vice president and Laguna Resorts & Hotels managing director.
