The opening of the new Nicklaus Course is expected to significantly contribute to the recovery of Vietnamese tourism, particularly golfing tourism, in the wake of economic and financial challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting on how BRG Group and BRG Danang Golf Resort expect to support the resurgence of summer tourism in Danang, BRG Group director Mark Reeves said, “At BRG, we’re predicting a swift return of tourism, particularly domestic golfing tourism, in the coming months."

Reeves added that BRG Danang now offers two world-class courses designed by Jack Nicklaus Design and Greg Norman Golf Design – the architects currently ranked as the world’s top two golf course designers.

“Our new 18-hole championship Nicklaus course complements our award-winning Norman Course, ensuring that BRG Danang Golf Resort will drive record-breaking domestic golf tourism to Danang city in 2020. We are advising golfers to book early,” he said.

At BRG Danang Golf Resort, the new Nicklaus Course is Asia’s first true bulkhead course. Inspired by world-class Florida style courses, the authentic hardwood bulkhead materials were imported from the US and form a key feature of the Nicklaus Course golfing strategy.

Enhancing this, the coastal city of Danang boasts beautiful tropical beachfront palms and greenery blended with long white sandy beaches that collectively provide some of the best golf views around.

Besides this, the mature Dunes Course is the first design in Vietnam from global golf icon Greg Norman, showcasing an authentic links-style layout reminiscent of the world’s original golf courses. When playing the Norman-created Dunes Course golfers can be transported back to the game’s origins of playing along the blustery shores that were the home of golf and the very first championship courses.

This truly unique combination of premium golf courses turns BRG Danang Golf Resort into a must-visit destination for both local and international golfers wishing to experience these two golf masterpieces.

Golfers can now enjoy two days playing two completely contrasting courses or indulge themselves in a sunrise to late night golf feast by playing both courses in the same day by completing their Nicklaus Course round under the latest LED stadium floodlight technology at night.

As a leading golf developer in Vietnam with the mission to turn the country’s golfing industry into a key economic sector that attracts high-end tourism, BRG Group strives to constantly add new, innovative products to its luxury golf portfolio by partnering with the world’s leading golf designers such as Nicklaus and Norman.

BRG Group’s award-winning golf course collection now includes BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort, Hanoi designed with a unique twin-green design concept that is the first of its kind in Asia (also the first Nicklaus Design course in Vietnam); and The Kings Course at BRG Kings Island Golf Resort, Hanoi, featuring the famous Jack Nicklaus II signature 19th hole which has both Kings and Queens tees played to and island par-3, "shoot-out" green.

Upon the easing of pandemic control in Vietnam, BRG Group has immediately taken a series of positive actions to strongly support the nation’s tourism by opening BRG Danang Golf Resort as the first 36-hole golf course in the city to help Danang reaffirm its position as today’s most attractive golf destination in the region.

The move aims to turn Danang into a globally-recognised golf hub and to contribute to the city’s socio-economic well-being by creating thousands of quality jobs.
