Vietnam’s central coast golf courses are towering peaks on the global golf map, with emerald paddy fields and a generous coastline, providing a febrile breeding ground for some of Asia's best golf courses.
The stretch of land that extends from Hoi An through to Danang and onto Hue is home to some of Vietnam’s finest clubs. Sumptuous resorts dominate the foreshore, while world-class golf layouts designed by some of the biggest names in course architecture claim the hinterland.
On the must-try list, Hoiana Shores Golf Club, located just south of the UNESCO-listed town of Hoi An and rated by many as the country’s top course, is an absolute gem. Close to the ocean, it combines elements of inland and heathland golf with traditional links.
The Vietnam debut for Robert Trent Jones II sees the legendary golf course architect in top form. Named “Best Golf Course in Vietnam” by USA Golf Digest, the world-class, 18-hole course is a links design with play through rolling dunes and Casuarina trees, with six holes at the ocean’s edge.
The entire course is a triumph of canny architecture and exquisite conditioning. Of these, hole 16, which plays through the coastal dunes on the shore, is a particularly elemental experience with views of the Cham Islands in the distance and dramatically positioned within mere steps of the ocean spray.
The clubhouse is one of the largest in Asia, including a restaurant and café, function room and golf shop. There is also an on-site driving range and teaching studio. Hoiana Shores is in the upper echelon of the country’s superlative golf experiences, with facilities and services to satisfy the most discerning players. Tee times are in high demand, so early booking is strongly recommended.
