Grand Opening of BISP Golf Centre
Date: Today, 10 March 2016
Time: 4pm
Location: BISP Golf Centre

All members of the BISP community are invited to attend the Grand Opening of the new BISP Golf Centre TODAY (Thursday 10 March) at 4pm, located adjacent to the top football pitch behind the Sports Hall.

We are privileged to have British golfing legend Sir Nick Faldo – 6-Time Major Winner and Laguna Golf Ambassador – on hand to officially open the new BISP Golf Centre, a specialist training area recently constructed on the campus of BISP.

Designed in collaboration with top local designers and BISP Golf Academy Head Coach Oliver Bates, the BISP Golf Centre has been developed to allow the talented young golfers in the BISP Golf Academy to practice their full range of shots without needing to leave the school’s spacious 44 acre (99 rai) campus. To this end, the BISP Golf Centre includes putting greens, chipping areas, bunkers, and a netted driving range.

A regular visitor to Laguna Phuket’s Banyan Tree Resort, Sir Nick Faldo will take time to meet with BISP student golfers and tour the campus.

Faldo is a huge advocate for junior golf development, having created his Faldo Series in 1996 to give opportunity to young people through golf and to help identify and nurture the next generation of champions. The Faldo Series now stretches over 30 countries worldwide and benefits more than 7,000 young golfers each year.

During the visit, Sir Nick will remind BISP student golfers of Phuket’s first ever Faldo Series – Thailand Championship South, hosted by Laguna Golf Phuket, which will be held in early September.

Open to golfers aged 12-21 years, the winners of each age group will qualify for the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final hosted by Sir Nick Faldo, which will be held in Laguna Lang Co, Central Vietnam in March 2017.
