BANYAN TREE LĂNG CÔ LAUNCHES GOLF PACKAGE FOR SIR NICK FALDO CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF COURSE
Vietnam, January 2013–To kick off the new year, Banyan Tree Lăng Cô is teaming up with the newly-opened Laguna Lăng Cô Golf Club to introduce the Must Golf Banyan Tree Lăng Cô package. Part of Vietnam’s first world-class integrated resort, Laguna Lăng Cô, Banyan Tree Lăng Cô opened its doors to guests in November 2012, while Laguna Lăng Cô Golf Club made its debut shortly after in December 2012.
Designed to offer absolute privacy and exclusivity, Banyan Tree Lăng Cô is nestled in a unique crescent bay framed by a three kilometre beach on the Central Coast of Vietnam, an area renowned for its pristine coastline, tropical jungles, rugged mountain peaks and proximity to the country’s most storied UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the cities of Hue and Hoi An along with the relics of My Son. The resort is easily accessible within a 60 minute car ride from Da Nang International airport, which is fed by Tan Son Nhat International Airport (Ho Chi Minh).
The Laguna Lăng Cô Golf Club, an 18-hole, par-71 championship course designed by Sir Nick Faldo, delivers a golfing experience that can be enjoyed by skilled and novice players alike. The site’s natural rugged terrain has been preserved, offering a distinctive course with changing landscape framed by mountains on three sides and the East Sea to the west. The grounds weave between soaring trees, flowing streams, verdant rice paddies and dramatic rock features, and are noted for their oceanfront footage. Measuring just under 7,000 yards from the pro tees and 5,200 from the front tees, the course accommodates players of every level of experience. Varied terrain throughout the course offers golfers an idyllic opportunity to test their skills and shot selections. The par-3 fifth is already being called the course’s signature hole with two large sculpted mounds around the green framing a mountain peak beyond. The finish hole, a monster dog-leg left, calls for golfers to dig deep and swing hard to finish out the round on the 18th green overlooking the sea.
From now until the end of March 2013, guests who book the ‘Must Golf Banyan Tree Lăng Cô’ starting from US$705 per villa per night will receive one night accommodation for two including daily breakfast, one round of 18-hole for two persons including green fee, caddy fee and caddy booking fee.
