LGA, Singapore will be housed at Laguna National’s state-of-the-art Teaching and Practice Facility. The facility is home to 50 hitting bays spread out on two levels, a dedicated LGA zone where students can learn from Leadbetter’s top certified instructors and experience high-quality technology that the professionals use. Along with LGA’s dedicated zone, students will encounter a short game area with dedicated putting and chipping greens, a golf shop featuring the latest Titleist, TaylorMade and PING products, a café and locker room.
“I am excited to open LGA Singapore at the premier Laguna National. I have been to the facility many times for the European Tour’s Singapore Masters and LPGA’s ADT Caps Tour Championship and it really is an exceptional course. The course has recently gone through load of construction and it really is a must-see. From the two 18-hole championship courses to the dual-level facility holding 50 hitting bays, this location is a golfer’s dream.” - David Leadbetter
