Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa takes in former pro-golfer

Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa has partnered with Sky Sports golf commentator and former pro-golfer John E. Morgan, for a two-week residency from February 15 to 28, 2019. Morgan, who has played alongside golfers such as Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and Fred Couples, is known for his participation in The Open Championships, European Tour and PGA Tour. During the two-week residency, the golfer will teach guests in group classes and one-on-one sessions.

The Golf Residency with John E. Morgan at Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa is designed for golfers at all levels and ages. Guests can use the resort’s nine-hole, par three and four golf course. Set on seven and a half hectares at the southern end of Villingili Island, the course is designed with coconut-palms lining the fairways.

Along with personal training and group workshops, the resort will host tournaments and activities throughout the two-week residency, including Beat the Pro sessions, during which guests are invited to try to hit a drive closer to the hole than Morgan. Golfers can also participate in the Mount Villingili Challenge, during which golfers will compete to strike a fish food golf ball the furthest into the Indian Ocean. Afterwards, guests can celebrate with a Dine by Design experience atop Mount Villingili.
