Long Thanh Golf Club & Residential Estate Description:
(beautiful Ron Fream design considered the south's #1 course)

The Long Thanh Golf Club offers 36 holes of golf in the former rice paddies and scenic countryside surrounding Saigon. The Ho Chi Minh City golf course is located 30 kilometers north of the city on a hilly with unobstructed views back towards the Vietnamese capital.

Both the Hill and Lake course are well maintained throughout the year and the golf courses are a longtime favorite among locals. Many expatriates and Vietnam golf visitors prefer Long Thanh Golf Club over its more famous neighbor Vietnam Golf & Country Club.

The Hill Course features rolling fairways and large undulating greens. Each hole is framed by large oil palms. The Lake Course is characterized by many high lipped bunkers and water hazards on almost every hole to catch errant shots. Both courses feature Paspalum grassed fairways and tee boxes. Putting greens use Tifdwarf Bermuda grass which can roll anywhere from 8 to 10 on the stimp meter. This combination of grasses matches other top courses in the region. The rough at Long Thanh is cut relatively short and poses no real challenge.

All 36 holes have their own character shape and this wide variety makes for good challenges for both serious amateurs and professional golfers. Higher handicappers might prefer the Lake Course however, which is relatively flatter.

Hole 13, a par-3 on the Hill Course is the signature hole and features a choice two greens equally good. Both require accurate tee shot as there is out-of-bounds at the back of the longer green. The shorter green is possibly even more difficult surrounded by the 'Great Wall of Long Thanh', with club selection being of prime importance, as there is water guarding the front and a rock face behind the green. This is a once seen never forgotten hole.

Another great hole at Long Thanh is the par-5, 14th hole on Hill Course. The longer you hit the ball, the tighter the fairway gets. If you can't reach the green in two shots, the lay-up shot requires real accuracy as there is out-of-bounds on the right and a lake on the left. There are frequently some big scores on this hole.
Both the Lake and Hill Courses are walking courses with single or shared golf carts being optional. Caddies, of whom 50% are male, are very good as most have been employed at Long Thanh for 5 or more years and some are even single handicappers themselves.

The Long Thanh Golf Club and Residential Estate have also spared no expense to build an elaborate clubhouse. The locker and changing rooms might be the plushest in Saigon. Ask for a shoe shine after your round. The pro shop is adequate, but often only stocked with a fleeing selection of merchandise. The main restaurant serves a fine selection of both Vietnamese and Western food for golfers after their rounds in both indoor and outdoor setting. It might be better however if the restaurant were more centrally located to take advantage of the excellent views of the Saigon skyline.

Overall, golf at Long Thanh is an impressive experience and is sure to please all Vietnam golfers.

Long Thanh Golf Club & Residential Estate Reviews & Comments

 
Russ Meaden (2012-10-06)
Had the privilage of playing both 18s in March this year.One of the best golf courses I have played on.Whether scenery wise or service . Thank you
Glenn Radalj (2012-01-13)
I almost didn't play and was disgusted with their treatment and lack of organisation skills. My wife had booked me to play months ago, 9 holes on each course and I had a print out of the email booking.
I arrived to be told that the person who did my booking doesn't work there anymore and they were full and so I couldnt play.
I had the booking form to prove it. They did not care.
I was all the way from Australia and play every country that I travel too.
If it wasn't for some kind Japanese men that overheard and invited me to play with them, I don't know what I would have done.
The course was magnificent, ranks up there with the best of them....but their management skills and lack of concern to fix a problem that was not of my doing...is not good and not proffessional.
My wife sent them an email of complaint once home and they have not replied.
If you are booked to play this course, ring and ring again right up until the week before.
