Best New Golf Course in Asia Pacific

The Ba Na Hills Golf Club has been awarded ‘Best New Golf Course in Asia Pacific’ and ‘Best Golf Course in Vietnam – the 1st Runner Up’ at the 2016 Asian Golf Awards.

Deputy Director of Da Nang city’s Tourism Department Nguyen Xuan Binh said the results were announced at the 2016 Asian Golf Awards Gala Award Presentation Ceremony in the Royal City of Hua Hin, Thailand last weekend. 

The 165ha Ba Na Hills Golf Club, situated 25 minutes away by car from Da Nang’s centre, opened in April and is the first golf course in Vietnam allowing golfers night access due to its state-of-the-art lightning system.

The course, which was designed by former world No 1 Luke Donald, features 18 tour-calibre holes, stretching 7,858 yards from the championship tees. 

The Da Nang-based golf course is already among the the most favourite golf sites in central Vietnam along with Greg Norman’s Da Nang Golf Club and Nick Faldo’s Laguna Lang Co in Thua Thien-Hue and Montgomerie Links in Quang Nam province.

The Ba Na Hills GC is managed by IMG and owned by Sun Group, one of the leading property investors in Vietnam. 

In 2012, the Montgomerie Links golf course was included in the Forbes Travel Guide list of Asia’s 10 Most Elite Golf Courses and was named Vietnam’s best course.-VNA
