The award-winning Laguna Golf Lăng Cô course in Central Vietnam has become the first fully operational course in the world to be elevated into a new elite category by its designer Sir Nick Faldo.

The six-time major winner has bestowed ‘Signature Design Status’ on the course, making it his flagship Asian layout.

Opened in 2013, the course enjoys a unique location, sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains.

“From the first time I came here when it was still jungle almost tean years ago, I’ve always considered it a unique place,” said Faldo. “We knew the course was going to be different and special because you play through different environments.

“You go through the rice fields to the jungle, and then we’ve got beach and river and rocks.

“It really is a special course, with a memorability factor that is sure to keep golfers interested.”

The team at Laguna Golf Lang Co have made numerous changes and improvements to the layout in recent years.

These include new tees, opening up views of the beach by clearing trees, and the reintroduction of rice paddies in the middle of the course, tended to by a family of water buffalo who act as “bio-mowers”.

Adam Calver, the director of golf at Laguna Golf Lang Co, said: “Being elevated in status like this really speaks volumes of our on-going commitment to realising Sir Nick’s vision.”
