Golf is set to grow exponentially in Vietnam and the region that is leading the thrust in this fast-emerging country is Central Vietnam.
Under an initiative labelled as “Vietnam Golf Coast”, seven signature designed golf courses are joining hands to form a new golf-specific destination marketing group which extends from the up-and-coming city of Da Nang to the foothills of Hue and the shores of Hoi An.
Strongly supported by Greg Norman, who is Vietnam’s national tourism Ambassador, the courses involved in this collaborative effort are Laguna Golf Lang Co (designed by Sir Nick Faldo), Ba Na Hills Golf Club (designed by Luke Donald), Montgomerie Links (designed by Colin Montgomerie), BRG Da Nang Golf Resort (designed by Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus), Vinpearl Golf Nam Hoi An (IMG Design) and the soon-to-open Hoiana Shores Golf Club (designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr.).
“The goal of Vietnam Golf Coast is to shine a light on the amazing golf courses here in Central Vietnam,” said Mr. Ben Styles, Chairman of the Vietnam Golf Coast Group. “Together we have an opportunity to showcase some legends of golf and golf architecture in one location, alongside pristine beaches and compelling tourism activities for all.”
Mr. Nguyen Xuan Binh, Deputy Director of Danang Tourism Department underscored Central Vietnam’s growing attractions for golfers. “With all these internationally renowned golf courses in one place, it’s a great chance for golfers from all over the world to come and experience a unique brand of golf.”
