“Faldo Series has been held for the past 26 years, 17 years in Asia alone”, said Faldo, “Faldo Series in Vietnam will return in the near future. Your country has a wonderful climate and landscape. If you combine facilities and advanced training methods, you will give birth to great talents in the future.”
Faldo also hopes that those talents will be nurtured from the golf courses Vietnam that were designed by him. Faldo Series was once held at Laguna Lang Co Golf Resort, and will most likely come to Thanh Lanh Valley Golf Resort in the near future.
