The Fish Around Six Senses Con Dao Just Love It When Guests Have Golf Practice

July 6, 2013 Golf Tourism No Comments Email Email

If you were a fish, you’d probably duck for cover when a stray golf ball came careering into your pond, river, or piece of pristine bay. But on the Vietnam island of Con Son, they couldn’t be more pleased, because it means that they get an extra meal without having to exert energy.

Six Senses Con Dao, set in the beautiful archipelago of the same name, have introduced a golf ball with a distinct difference. The ball, ideal for all types of practice shots, be it on the driving range, luxury yacht deck or atop Elephant Mountain, comes with a bonus for our fishy friends. It has a core of fish food that is released when the outer cover of the ball biodegrades – just forty-eight hours after coming into contact with water.

Ardent golfers may find the ball a little sluggish for competition on the greens, but as a practice piece, it couldn’t be better for all concerned: The ball supports Six Senses commitment to the environment; it gives a feel-good sense for the golfer; the fish are totally supportive; and the manufacturer of EcoBioBall is also delighted because it cannot be reused once it goes in the water.
