Singapore: Golfers at Urban Fairways revelled in a priceless experience when Sir Nick Faldo made an unannounced visit to Singapore’s first indoor golf facility.
The six-time Major champion’s surprise appearance was in association with the MasterCard Legends Academy held at Sentosa Golf Club as part of the Priceless Singapore programme.
At 7 pm he arrived at the venue of the Asian Golf Industry Federation Golf Facility Member and made his way to one of the golf simulators where three players were entered into a shootout – trying to win a place at the Legends Academy event.
Dilip Ghosh, Managing Director at Urban Fairways, said: “What a legend! Sir Nick delighted the three entrants and then went on to enter the shootout himself.
“Showing he’s still a great golfer he put his ball just 10 feet from the pin on the par-three 11th at St Andrews – a hole he knows well. Our clients were absolutely delighted with the experience.”
Participant and Urban Fairways member Jeff Plein said: “That was the greatest golfing experience of my life!”
After spending some time with the participants, Sir Nick moved downstairs where he mingled with a surprised audience.
