Vietnam’s capital city is a sprawling, lively city with an energetic cultural scene, noted for its graceful colonial architecture and French and Old Quarters. Hanoi is the second most populous city in Vietnam, right in the heart of the Red River Delta. Thanks to its mix of broad tree-lined boulevards, narrow alleyways, lakes, and parks, temples, and pagodas, the city is a stunning blend of Indo-Chinese and French colonial influences.
Excursion visiting Hoa Lo Prison – what American POW’s not-so-affectionately dubbed ‘The Hanoi Hilton’ – will be a poignant experience. While the museum focuses mostly on the sufferings of the Vietnamese when they were imprisoned here by the French – visitors will undoubtedly be moved to know this is where John McCain and his fellow POW’s were held prisoner by the North Vietnamese.

SKY LAKE GOLF CLUB
The Sky Course is the work of Bori Golf Design Ltd. and lead designer Mr. Ahn Moon Hwan. The natural beauty of the landscape has been used to create continuity and consistency throughout the design. Subtle use of different elevations and aspects create a true and honest test of golf.
The signature hole of the Sky course is the 15th, aptly named Dien Bien Phu (an historic Vietnamese battle) due to its topography and difficulty. This hole is a true risk and reward experience that promises to become one of the more famous holes in the region.
VINPEARL HAI PHONG
Hai Phong, Vietnam
Located just off the city of Hai Phong – the third largest city in Vietnam and northern Vietnam’s most important seaport, positioned 120 km from Hanoi. Set amid the 872 hectares of Vingroup’s Vu Yen Island Ecotourism Area and crisscrossed by three rivers, in addition to the 36-hole championship golf course, the island features eco-villas, an ecological park, amusement complex, and a cable car system stretching 1.5 kilometers to link the mainland and the Island.
Designed by IMG Worldwide, the 36-hole championship golf course features two distinct courses “Lakeside” and “Marshland”, challenging players of all levels. Lakeside, a scenic resort-style course with a plethora of interconnected lakes, coming into play on 12 holes with generous fairways and large undulating greens. Marshland, a shot-makers golf course specifically designed to be in harmony with the carefully preserved open wetlands, has been established with a different character to complement its companion.
ANGKOR GOLF CLUB
Siem Reap, Cambodia
The beauty of Cambodia lies in the richness of its traditions. The elegance of golf comes from its strategy, honor, and skills. Designed by 3-time Masters Champion and 3-time Open Champion Sir Nick Faldo, the Angkor Golf Resort epitomizes these essential characteristics and a unique tradition begins at one of the world’s great new golf destinations.

VIETNAM GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Vietnam Golf & Country Club is the first 36-hole golf club in Vietnam and is widely regarded as Vietnam’s Premier Golf and Country Club. Located just 20 kilometers from the center of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Golf and Country Club is also the nearest golf club to the city. Set amongst 300 hectares of land, two great golf courses have been carved out of the existing woodland with minimal land movement, leaving you to feel that the land was always destined to be a golf course, so natural is the layout and design.
Lee Trevino, six-time Major Champion Winner (US Open 1968, 1971, USPGA Championship 1974, 1984 and The Open Championship 1971 and 1972), designed the East Course which opened in September 1997. The East Course offers more generous fairways than the West Course but is protected by well-positioned bunkers, water hazards and undulating Bermuda TifDwarf greens.
Alternate golf courses
Occasionally one of our Golf courses will be hosting an event, will be closed for maintenance, or could be booked out for a corporate day. Should that be the case we have selected some other courses to be played as an alternative. The courses all meet the same stringent selection criteria as our main courses and are also beautiful courses to play.

THE BLUFFS HO TRAM STRIP
Vung Tau, Vietnam
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. Designed by Greg Norman, the number 1 ranked course in Vietnam is a true Gem!
“This is one of only two pieces of land of this quality and character I have ever been given to work with – the other being Doonbeg in Ireland,” Norman said. “I’m a firm believer in using what Mother Nature gives us on a particular site. This one has it all. 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.”
