Sentosa’s Serapong Unveiled as LIV Golf Venue

Singapore: Sentosa Golf Club’s The Serapong has been announced as a venue on the LIV Golf League for 2023.

The award-winning Singapore venue is one of three new marquee destinations outside the United States that LIV Golf has confirmed will be part of its 2023 14-tournament schedule.

From April 28-30, The Serapong will welcome 48 of the world’s best players, including former Singapore Open champions Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia.

LIV Golf’s field also includes Major champions such as Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson, Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson.

The announcement comes off the back of one of the Club’s most successful awards season, headlined by being named ‘World’s Best Eco-Friendly Golf Facility’ for the third year in a row, ‘Asia’s Best Golf Course’ and ‘Best Championship Course in Asia-Pacific’.

A Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, Sentosa Golf Club is as an established powerhouse of Asian golf, defined by its state-of-the-art agronomy programme and ‘Tournament Ready’ conditioning all year round across both of its two championship courses, The Serapong and The Tanjong.

The outstanding conditioning of The Serapong and Sentosa Golf Club’s proven track record of staging world-class tournaments, as well as what the island of Sentosa and city of Singapore has to offer, played a significant part in the LIV Golf event staging.

Since 2018, Sentosa has been widely recognised for its commitment to sustainability, having become the first golf club in the world to join the UN Sports for Climate Action initiative.

Regarded as one of the world’s best golf courses, players will get to experience The Serapong’s iconic layout, with fast, challenging greens, trademark contours and signature holes, enhanced during the renovations programme undertaken in 2020.

Andrew Johnston, General Manager and Director of Agronomy at Sentosa Golf Club, highlighted the significance of this announcement for the club.

He said: “To be officially announced as a LIV Golf venue is exciting for everyone associated with Sentosa Golf Club. We are proud to have the opportunity to welcome 48 of the world’s best players to battle it out across The Serapong, for what will be the biggest prize purse and event in the history of golf in Singapore.

“We cannot wait to host the event and showcase to millions of people why Sentosa Golf Club is renowned for being one of the world’s best golf clubs.”

Andrew Lim, President of Sentosa Golf Club, added: “Sentosa Golf Club has an illustrious history and track record of hosting international golf tournaments. 2023 will be no different and we anticipate another eventful year for the club. Against the backdrop of golf’s global resurgence, Sentosa Golf Club welcomes fans in Singapore and the world over to come and watch some of the best players and brightest stars in world golf compete on The Serapong.”

Kwee Eng Thien, Sentosa Development Corporation Chief Executive Officer, said: “Together with Sentosa Golf Club, we are elated to host LIV Golf’s Singapore debut, and are confident that we can provide a top-of-class experience for golfers and fans alike.

“As tourism regains momentum and Sentosa continues to gear up and welcome world-class events, we remain committed to our sustainability goals and are proud that Sentosa Golf Club has received recognition for their steadfast efforts in sustainability.”

LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman added: “LIV Golf is committed to expanding the game of golf and aims to inspire the next generation of golfers across the globe.

“As one of the world’s best golf clubs, Sentosa Golf Club is the perfect setting to do just this as it has a long-standing history of hosting high-profile events. Its world-class championship course, The Serapong, is famous for delivering historical moments that live long in the memory and we can’t wait to tee off next season and create a new legacy for the game of golf in Singapore.”
