Singapore: Golf will not be the only sporting activity in the spotlight at next month’s Singapore Classic with visitors to Laguna National Golf Resort Club also being treated to a bout of beach volleyball.
Once the opening day of play in the DP World Tour event has wound down on the Classic Course on February 9, a beach volleyball exhibition match will take place in the sprawling bunker besides the ninth green on the Masters Course.
This will be one of many highlights specially curated for ticket holders to have a memorable experience at the Singapore Classic.
Throughout tournament week (February 9-12), the Spectator Village will have something for everyone, from games like Giant Jenga and Monster Ping Pong to activities such as face-painting for children and adults. A wide range of food and beverage options will also be available.
Patrick Bowers, Singapore Classic Executive Championship Director, said: “Having the DP World Tour come back to Singapore is certainly a milestone worth celebrating, and what better way to do so than through the extensive range of entertainment and food and beverage options that we’ve planned for our spectators.
“Whether you’re a serious follower of golf or someone who is new to the sport, you won’t be left out at the Singapore Classic. We look forward to welcoming all to Laguna National next month.”
Those new to the sport will be able to pick up some tips from Leadbetter Golf Academy professionals, who will be on hand. They can then challenge themselves and put their putting skills to the test on the Singapore Classic’s nine-hole putting course within the Spectator Village.
Spectators can also be rewarded for documenting their day out at Laguna National through a daily Instagram photo contest. The winner of the best photo each day will receive a limited edition event goodie bag.
Once the golf is done for the day, there will be plenty of opportunities for spectators to play. Those feeling inspired after watching some of the world’s best golfers up close can showcase their talent at the Oakley Closest to the Pin shootout contest over water to a peninsular green. Prizes will be awarded to the three players who hit ‘closest to the pin’ evening from February 10-12.
Visitors to Laguna National can also soak in the atmosphere and enjoy live music in the Spectator Village by The Nefarious Friends, with singer Christo Alexander.
Organised by Vantage Pointe, the US$2 million Singapore Classic marks the return of the DP World Tour to Singapore for the first time since 2014.
Ryan Fox of New Zealand, who won twice on the DP World Tour last year, has confirmed his participation at Laguna National, alongside teenage amateur prodigies Ding Wenyi and Ratchanon ‘TK’ Chantananuwat.
