Singapore: Major winners Sergio Garcia and Louis Oosthuizen, along with Asian Tour number one Gavin Green, have joined forces to lend their support to #KeepItGreen, a campaign created by host venue Sentosa Golf Club in order to tackle two of golf’s most important issues: environmental sustainability and participation growth.
Captured in an inspirational video shot during the SMBC Singapore Open, currently taking place over Sentosa’s World Top 100-ranked Serapong Course, the stars of the field also share their thoughts on the quality of the Serapong layout, recently voted the Asian Tour’s ‘Best Golf Course’.
Supported by The R&A and the Singapore Golf Association, #KeepItGreen is the opening activity in an unprecedented year for Sentosa Golf Club, a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
As well as the SMBC Singapore Open contested over the famed Serapong Course, Sentosa’s New Tanjong Course will stage the Women’s Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (February 21-24), followed by the LPGA Tour’s HSBC Women’s Champions (March 1-4) as well as the Men’s Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (October 4-7).
As well as highlighting two of the game’s most important issues, the video references Sentosa’s collaboration with 2017 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner Green whereby, for every green in regulation he hits during this week’s tournament, the club will donate a tee time to local youngsters.
Green’s efforts will allow young golfers, who may not otherwise have had the chance, an opportunity to pick up the game and follow the footsteps of golfing superstars.
The video also draws on the thoughts of 2017 Green Jacket winner Garcia, who speaks of the inspirational role sport can play.
