At Asia Pacific Golf Summit 2016 in HuaHin, Thailand on 29th -30th October, BRG Kings Island Golf Resort has been voted and awarded “Best Course in Vietnam” again by Asian Golf Monthly.
These are the awards within the annual prestigious award system “Asian Golf Award” by Asian Golf Monthly under the Asia Pacific Golf Group (Singapore), held annually to honor outstanding achievements in the industry. Based on the results of the reader poll of professional golfers and evaluation board includes experts in golf in the region, the award has found out the best names for these prestigious awards.
With the prestigious award “Best Course in Vietnam” in 2014, 2015 and 2016, BRG Kings Island Golf Resort has made a wonderful hat-trick represeting its outstanding performance in golf industry in Vietnam and put this course in the same list with high ranking golf courses in the region including Mission Hills Golf Club Haikou (China), Yalong Bay Golf Course (China), Sentosa Golf Club (Singapore) and Black Mountain Golf Club (Thailand)…
The entire team at BRG Kings Island has worked tirelessly to improve the overall golf experience, which is reflected by this prestigious award.
“This is the third time around that BRG Kings Island Golf Resort has secured the coveted top placing as the Best Golf Course in Vietnam. This bears testimony to the club’s popularity with both local and international golfers. The Mountain Course was further upgraded this year with construction of three new tournament greens complexes that have elevated the course to a true test of champions. And a superb make-over of the 1000m2 Starbucks styled halfway house was coupled with the re-numbering of the course by reversing holes 1 an 10 and a complete upgrade of the carts, uniforms and service standards.
In many ways BRG Kings Island is totally unique experience from its arrival by speed boat across a natural lake to the pristine conditioned course set against a formidable mountain-scape backdrop – it’s truly a sight to behold. The natural flora and fauna also complements this dramatic backdrop and provides for an excellent golfing experience. It can fairly be said that BRG Kings Island offers the very best all round golfing experience to golfers in Vietnam today” – Mr. Mike Sebastian, CEO Asia Pacific Golf Group (President of Asian Golf Award) said.
Along with the award for BRG Kings’ Island Golf Resort, Madame Nguyen Thi Nga – Chairman of BRG Group, was also awarded with “2016 Asia Pacific Life-Time Achievement in Golf” and “2016 Asia’s Most Powerful People in Golf” for her great contribution to the game of golf in Vietnam and in the region.
