Faldo Series Asia 15th Grand Final Returns To Laguna Lăng Cô

Asia’s best junior golfers will descend at Laguna Golf Lăng Cô in the 15th Faldo Series Asia Grand Final from April 24th to April 26th April 2024 under the name “Home of the Faldo Series Asia” until 2026
With the return of the 15th Faldo Series Asia Grand Final, Laguna Lăng Cô becomes the gathering point for more than 50 young golfers from 12 countries including Australia, Japan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Nepal and Vietnam. The tournament running from April 24 to April 26, 2024, serves as a platform for young golfers to demonstrate their talent and competitive spirit on a golf course designed by the legend Sir Nick Faldo and marks a significant milestone in their career development.

Boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 21 compete throughout the year in the Faldo Series Asia for World Armature Golf Ranking (WAGR) points, aiming to meet 6-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo at the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final in April.

The beauty of Laguna Lang Co Golf Course
It has been 17 years since the tournament expanded to Asia, and the past champions of the Faldo Series Asia have made significant marks regionally and on the world golf stage. Many have continued to succeed, showcasing the importance of the Faldo Series Asia as a solid foundation for the future. For instance, Rashid Khan (the 2nd and 3rd Faldo Series Asia champion) topped the Rolex Rankings in 2013 to win “The PGTI’s Rolex Player of the Year,” became the first Indian to win the Sri Lanka Open 2016 in Colombo, and ascended to the world ranking of 176th, positioning himself as India’s prime candidate for a spot at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Additionally, female golfers have also excelled; Suzuka Yamaguchi (the 12th Faldo Series Asia champions) became the first Japanese woman to win the 2018 Australian Amateur Championship and secured a spot on the LPGA Tour in 2020, finishing 16th in the LPGA Q-Series 2019 rankings.

Sir Nick Faldo, founder of the Faldo Series, stated: “I can’t wait any longer to return to Central Vietnam to witness the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final, promising intense competitions. Laguna Lăng Cô golf course always delivers exciting performances, and I eagerly welcome all golfers back to such a memorable event!”

Our global award-winning Par 71 course, Laguna Golf Lăng Cô proudly known as “Sir Nick Faldo’s Signature Design,” presents unique challenges for golfers at every level. It also offers an opportunity for them to learn and refine their skills through training sessions with Sir Nick Faldo at Laguna, while experiencing top-tier accommodation services at the resort, including the seaside Banyan Tree Lăng Cô Hill Villas, Angsana Lăng Cô Hotel, and Laguna Parkside Lăng Cô, all of which have been honored by Conde Nast.

Stephen Banks, Director of Laguna Golf Lăng Cô stated that: “The outlook for golf in Vietnam is exceptionally promising, something that was showcased by the leaderboard at last year’s Faldo Series Asia Grand Final. Our continued role as the host venue for the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final underscores our commitment to fostering junior golf in Vietnam and across Asia.”

As part of the Faldo Series Asia journey and Banyan Group’s commitment to supporting the local community in development, our Director of Golf recently embarked on a 10-week journey coaching over 30 students from Loc Vinh school on the life benefits of golf, its values, and the event taking place on their doorstep introducing Sir Nick Faldo.
