Nowhere else in Vietnam, which has over 35 golf courses in the entire country, can match the Central Coast for the quality of its golf and general travel attractions. As well as golf, three UNESCO World Heritage sites – Hoi An Ancient Town, the Hue monuments and My Son cultural sanctuary are all in the region.
With 3 current great golf courses: Montgomerie Links, Danang Golf Club, Laguna Lang Co and fourth golf course – Ba Na Hill Golf Club which is expected to open in early 2016, Central Coast is becoming a new destination for golfers from all over the world.
Located about 25 minutes drive from the center of Da Nang city, in mountains west of Da Nang at Ba Na Hills – a French hill station in colonial times but now became one of the most popular tourist attractions in Da Nang. Ba Na Hills Golf Club is a golf and residential project being developed by Sun Group and located in a beautiful valley with mountain backdrops.
The Ba Na Hills site is unique and totally different from the current offering of golf courses in the Central region. It will not be another seaside golf course but a mountain course with a great mix of natural topography and vegetation.
Luke Donald – former No.1 English professional golfer, joined IMG in the design of the first 18 holes at Ba Na Hills Golf Club. Luke Donald has had an great interest in golf course design for many years and comes from a very artistic background. An avid painter and an accomplished piano player, he earned a degree in Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University in the USA.
The course design will feature undulating greens, generous fairways with bold and demanding bunkers that require a variety of approach shots. Thanks to its spectacular natural landscape, the design team utilizes the natural topography to create a truly remarkable golf experience. The varying lengths, and lies provided by the rolling slope of the land and elevations changes will ensure that you get to use every shot in your arsenal and probably a few that you had not thought of before.
“Being on the Ba Na Hills Course’s design team is a big oppoturnity to me. We have a great atmosphere to be freely creative with big trees, streams and mountains. I’m really happy and looking forward to seeing the golf course when it’s ready for golfers.” Luke Donald said.
The Ba Na Golf Club is about 4,500 feet above sea level and the entire Ba Na tourist complex serves as a much welcomed cool hill resort from the very hot weather of downtown Danang.
