The Championship at Laguna National

Laguna National Golf and Country Club in Singapore has been named as the new venue for The Championship from May 1-4, 2014.

It marks a return to the island country for The European Tour and the Asian Tour, which co-sanctioned the Singapore Masters there in the six years between 2002 and 2007 and the Singapore Open from 2009 to 2012. It also marks a return of top level professional golf to the Masters Course at Laguna National, an Andy Dye design which has regularly been ranked among the top courses in the world by Golf Digest International and Asian Golf.

The Championship at Laguna National formerly the Ballantine’s Championship – was originally scheduled to be played in Korea next month but when staging issues made it clear that was not going to be possible, tournament organisers acted quickly and decisively to move the tournament to Singapore.
