Danang – A Personal Destination Review by Wayne Johnson

Danang, located on the coast of the South China Sea, marks the halfway point between the Vietnamese capital Hanoi to the North and the vibrant city of Ho Chi Minh to the south. The fourth largest city in the country is immersed in culture with the historic towns of Hue and Hoi An located close by and well worth a visit on a day off from the golf course.

Danang is rapidly becoming known as Vietnam’s Golf Coast, the beautiful sandy beaches stretching along the crystal-clear waters of the South China Sea boast many fine hotels and internationally acclaimed restaurants, combined with the amazing mountain scenery of Ba Na Hills and the 5 signature golf courses close by Danang is becoming a “must play” golf destination.

To the north of the City lies the Sir Nick Faldo designed Laguna Lang Co with hugs the shoreline and provides a great test of golf, especially as the sea breeze picks up in the afternoons, moving south from Laguna we come across the stunning mountain property Ba Na Hills designed by European great Luke Donald and recently acclaimed as Asia’s best course at the 2018 World Golf Awards. As we move more southerly to the cost line of Danang we come across two of the country’s most prominent clubs, the Greg Norman BRG Danang Golf Club which is a real gem of a course for the connoisseurs and the equally challenging Montgomerie Links next door.

Travelling just a little further to the South and into the cultural town of Hoi An we have the Nam Hoi An course ideal for the entry level players and the soon to be resort destination of Hoiana Shores a Robert Trent Jones II masterpiece running in parallel with the beach and destined to become one of the world’s top 100 hundred courses. Opening in September 2019.

Da Nang also offers a variety of excellent accommodation to suit every budget and wonderful nightlife to relive the memories of the great courses you have played. Book your next Danang & Hoi An Golf Holiday with Golfasian.
