BRG Group has wrapped up its fifth annual BRG Golf Hanoi Festival titled “For the love of the game” with a luxury gala dinner awards ceremony at BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort.

This year's tournament attracted many domestic golfers and foreign golfers who are currently residing in Vietnam. The international players from overseas were unable to attend the tournament this year due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 epidemic but have all vowed to return in 2021 to compete for the prestigious title of champion.

After two days of fierce competition, Nguyen Tien Sy claimed the Gross Champion Prize with an overall score of 157 and received the "one of a kind" Chu Dau ceramic trophy and the special award for the champion. Such fine handmade and illustrated ceramics are normally used as a national gift symbolising the quintessence of Vietnamese culture and are a fitting reward for a worthy champion.

At the awards ceremony, golfer Nguyen Tien Sy happily shared, “I regularly play golf with my friends at BRG Group’s golf courses. I am really impressed with the beautiful view and great quality of the courses. This brings a lot of inspiration to golfers. This year, I have won after attending the tournament for the third time. I am always impressed by the professional organisation, as well as delicious dishes in the awards ceremony. I will definitely attend the tournament next year.”

Second-time participant at the BRG Golf Hanoi Festival, Amish Jaitha, an Indian golfer, shared: “I am impressed by the professional organisation of BRG Golf Hanoi Festival. The speed of play was good, the courses in excellent shape, and the weather was perfect for scoring. It was a great day, a great event!”

When asked why he joined the 2020 championship, Amish – a 10-year resident in Vietnam – replied: “I wanted to test myself on challenging golf courses set up in tournament conditions. Sometimes you have to stand on the tee with a (score) card in your hand and a trophy on the line to see your true performance.”

Comments like these and the commitment, enthusiasm and participation from golfers around the country are the undisputed proof that BRG Golf Hanoi Festival has become a true festival for golf lovers to enjoy the magnificent moments this sport can offer, both on and off the course.

Along with the golf event, the Gala Dinner Awards Ceremony, superb trophies and great prizes, guests also experienced a few thrills at the end of the night when dozens of high-value prizes were distributed amongst the tables via a Lucky Lux Draw that included gifts from all the BRG Group member companies and various headline sponsors.

At dinner, golfers responded positively to the professional organisation of the tournament, declaring it "a true golfer experience" that whilst competitive was also relaxing post-golf in the comfortable surroundings of the Legend Hill clubhouse. This contributes to the many reasons why the BRG Golf Hanoi Festival has become known as the best amateur multi-course championship in the country today. The tournament is slated to continue to grow even bigger next year and eventually establish itself as a "golf tourism destination" event (a new category for golf tourism) in coming years.

“It’s been a hotly-contested BRG Golf championship and the worthy winners have proved they can master the best courses in the country. As you know this event always aims to support Vietnamese golf tourism so we are excited to look to expand the event again next year and invite more international golfers to come here and to try our BRG courses,” said Mark Reeves, BRG Group's division director responsible for golf.
