Laguna Golf Lang Co has created a slice of history by becoming the first golf course in the world to organise two different MercedesTrophy Country Finals within the same year.

Less than four weeks after staging the MercedesTrophy Vietnam Final 2018, the award-winning, Sir Nick Faldo-designed course hosted the MercedesTrophy Taiwan Final 2018.

Adam Calver, director of Golf at Laguna Golf Lang Co, said: “In a short space of time, Laguna Golf Lang Co has established itself as one of the region’s finest golfing venues. Holding prestigious events such as the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final, the MercedesTrophy Vietnam Final 2018, and the Mercedes Trophy Taiwan Final 2018 serves to underline our commitment to excellence. Utilising our various dining venues and providing luxurious beachside accommodation at our Banyan Tree and Angsana Lang Co resorts only elevates the event experience.”

An exclusive series of invitational golf tournaments conducted around the world, the MercedesTrophy has been running since 1989. Each year, some 60,000 players in more than 60 countries tee-off in local, regional, and national events, competing to qualify for the MercedesTrophy World Final at the ‘hometown of the three-pointed star,’ Stuttgart, Germany.

All group winners from this year’s MercedesTrophy Vietnam Final and MercedesTrophy Taiwan Final progressed to the MercedesTrophy Asian Final 2018, to be held in Brisbane, Australia on August 5-8.

The winners will go on to fly the flag for the region at the 28th edition of the MercedesTrophy World Final on October 2-7.

The MercedesTrophy Vietnam Final 2018 (June 3) attracted a field of more than 200 golfers and was highlighted by a hole-in-one at the par-three eighth hole by Vu Ngoc Bien.

Also, Ha Ngoc Hoang Loc and Cao Thi Phuong Mai also had cause for celebration after they defied heavy rain and strong winds to post the best gross scores in the men’s and women’s divisions, respectively.

Joining them in the MercedesTrophy Asian Final 2018 will be Le Trong Duc, Nguyen Tu Minh, Mai Dang Khoa, Pham Minh Phong, and Nguyen Huu Tho.

“After five years of operation with a host of milestones to celebrate, Laguna Lang Co continues to go from strength to strength as an ideal integrated holiday destination. The partnership with Mercedes-Benz Vietnam is another wonderful step in our evolution and our goal of being recognised as the most luxurious resort in Vietnam,” said Gavin Herholdt, managing director of Laguna Lang Co.

Laguna Lang Co is a leading integrated resort in Vietnam and an ideal second home destination development in Central Vietnam. The 280-hectare community, which marks the first project in Vietnam for Banyan Tree Group, lies near Lang Co Bay and is framed by a three-kilometre beach overlooking the East Sea, an area renowned for its pristine coastline, natural scenery, and proximity to UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
