Singapore: Sentosa Golf Club’s Serapong Course has been named Best Course of the Year at the Asian Tour’s Annual Awards.
During the end-of-season event at Royale Jakarta Golf Club, Asian Tour CEO Josh Burack made the presentation to Andy Johnston, General Manager and Director of Agronomy at Sentosa Golf Club, a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
The awards are voted for by Asian Tour members, who compete each year over the Serapong layout in the SMBC Singapore Open.
Johnston said: “To be recognised by such an esteemed group is testament to the passion of all involved at Sentosa Golf Club.
“We take great pride in being a host venue on the Asian Tour and have benefited over the years from hosting the world’s best players and the impact of the global broadcast.
“The commitment from our ownership group allows for us to continually deliver the highest standards, which have led to this success and is an achievement we take a great deal of pride in.”
The Singapore club is bracing for a landmark year in 2018. As well as hosting the SMBC Singapore Open on the Serapong from January 18-21, Sentosa Golf Club will stage the inaugural Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific Golf Championship and the HSBC Women’s World Championship on the New Tanjong in February and March respectively, and the Asia Pacific Men’s Amateur Championship in October.
Burack said: “The Asian Tour and its players would like to congratulate Sentosa Golf Club for winning the Best Golf Course of the Year. The recognition is testament to Sentosa Golf Club’s achievement as one of the leading golf courses in Asia and across the globe.
“Our professionals love the challenge of competing at Sentosa Golf Club and their vote of confidence is testimony to the fantastic upkeep of the course and its facilities.”
Opened in 1974, the Club is located on Sentosa Island, a premier fully integrated leisure destination with more than a dozen hotels, a plethora of themed attractions and a two-kilometre stretch of sheltered beach.
The Serapong Course and New Tanjong Course are an integral part of the island and provide major appeal for visitors not just to Sentosa, but Singapore as a whole.
