Swing for the Heart 2018 attracted nearly 130 golfers to compete on the resort’s 18-hole champion course, many of them are famous golfers and celebrities. All the proceeds from the golf tournament and the VND1.4 billion (around $61,000) raised from the event’s charity auction goes directly to the fund to help pay for heart surgeries for poor children in Central Vietnam.

Golfer Ha Ngoc Hoang Loc, from the central coast city of Danang, was the winner of Swing for the Heart 2018. He previously won the Mercedes Trophy which also took place at Laguna Golf Lăng Cô in June this year.

Located in the world-class integrated Laguna Lăng Cô resort, the 18-hole, par-71 course was designed by six-time Major winner, Sir Nick Faldo. Harnessing the stunning natural environment of Lăng Cô, Faldo designed an engaging course which weaves between trees, natural streams, over rice paddies and through impressive rock features to create a diverse and unique golfing experience. The award-winning course can be enjoyed by the most experienced player and beginner alike, measuring just under 7,100 yards from the championship tees and a beginner friendly 5,263 yards from the front tees.

With its world-class facilities, Laguna Golf Lăng Cô has been a regular venue for local and international golf tournaments, including the Faldo Series Asia Grand Finals, Club Championship, Cobra Puma Pro Am Weekend, Banyan Tree Belt and Mercedes Trophy 2018. It has also played host to many unique events and activities, including when Laguna Golf Lăng Cô was turned into a special catwalk to host the Spring-Summer 2018 collection of Vietnamese designer Do Manh Cuong in May.

As part of the integrated resort, the golf course is located next to the luxury Banyan Tree Hotel and its award-winning spas and the sea-front Angsana Lăng Cô Hotel and the Laguna Park Lăng Cô townhouses which lie along the 18th hole of the course.
