Vietnam luxury golf course - 5 best designer golf courses to play in Vietnam

When Vietnam was named “Asia's best golf destination” at the 2018 World Golf Awards, one of the most prestigious events in the golf tourism industry, it only confirmed what many already knew. Vietnam has long been regarded as a golfing heavyweight, with numerous courses consistently ranking among the best in the region.

And it's not hard to see why. The country's diversity is reflected in its golf courses, which range from tropical gems to some of the Far East's closest equivalents to classic links play.

Some of the most well-known names in golf course architecture have contributed to this portfolio of elegant courses. Legends such as Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus, and Sir Nick Faldo have had a significant impact on the growth of the game in Vietnam, laying out some of the country's most notable tracks. The five gold-standard designer golf courses to play in Vietnam are listed below.

Laguna Golf Lang Co

Located within the greater Laguna Lăng Cô integrated resort lies the Laguna Lăng Cô Golf Club, an 18-hole, par-71 championship course designed by Sir Nick Faldo. The Lăng Cô Golf Club delivers a golfing experience that can be enjoyed by the most experienced players and beginners alike. The course presents variety for players of all levels measuring just over 7,000 yards from the championship tees and a beginner friendly 5,263 yards from the front tees.

A calming sea breeze wafts across the course, which offers ocean views and an amphitheatre-like mountainous backdrop. Each hole on the course is designed to reveal a character of its own, presenting golfers myriad opportunities for exceptional game play. The course weaves between trees, natural streams, over rice paddies and through impressive rock features to create a memorable and diverse and unique golf experience.

Laguna Golf Lang Co is an easy hour’s drive from Danang Airport. It’s well worth making a little extra effort to visit. 

BRG Danang golf

BRG Da Nang Golf Resort, which was founded in 2010 and was named one of the 15 best new courses in the world just a few months after its grand opening, is an 18-hole golf course with a 72-par standard that spans over 7,200 yards and plays in Dunes and Ocean settings. This is another design by the legendary Greg Norman, who was ranked number one from the 1980s to the 1990s. This multi-award winner was named "Best Golf Course" by readers of Asian Golf Monthly and USA Golf Digest.

The 4,000-square-meter clubhouse and 300-yard driving range reflect the course's high standards and service. The food is some of the best in Danang, and watching a Vietnam sunset from the rooftop lounge is a great way to reflect on your round and plan your next Vietnam golf vacation.

Bana Hill Golf Club

Designed by Luke Donald and managed by IMG, Ba Na Hills Golf Club is a world class facility located at the foothills of the famed Ba Na Hills on Vietnam’s central coast, located 25 minutes from downtown Da Nang. Ba Na Hills Golf Club was also awarded “Asia’s Best Golf Course” at the World Golf Awards 2018.

This stunning property is set amongst some of the most impressive mountain ranges in the region. The par 72, 18-hole Championship golf course provides a balance of challenge, enjoyment and excitement to golfers of all levels and abilities with 5 sets of tees to ensure golfers of all standards a pleasurable round of golf. Ranging from 7,857 yards from the Professional tees to 6,022 yards from the white, friendlier tees, a good variety and mixture of playing lengths makes every hole feel unique.

Hoiana Shores Golf Club

Robert Trent Jones Jr. is regarded worldwide as “the father of environmental golf course design” for his surprisingly low impact on the landscapes he works with. Set against a spectacular coastline and unspoiled natural terrain, Hoiana Shores brings the design genius of Robert Trent Jones Jr. to Vietnam – for the very first time.

Offering majestic views of the Eastern Sea and Cham Islands, Hoiana Shores Golf Club (HSGC) offers a thrilling links golf experience for golfers of all levels. With a spectacular natural seaside setting, a luxurious clubhouse and 18 challenging-yet-rewarding holes, this is a must-play course for any golf enthusiasts visiting the region.

The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip


The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip was designed to capture the true essence of links-style golf. Set on the coastline — as almost all great links courses are — The Bluffs is routed over and around towering sand dunes, which have been shaped over thousands of years by the elements. The wind plays a major role in the experience here; it’s always strong, and its prevailing direction differs depending on the time of year.

Said the course’s designer, Greg Norman: “The experience of playing true links golf among the dunes of southern Vietnam and having dramatic ocean views throughout your round will make The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world.”
