BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort – A Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course has launched the international standard Golf driving Range and practice facility, this is also the first driving range in Vietnam that meets the global standards.
A driving range is an area where golfers can practice their golf swings. It can also be a recreational activity itself for amateur golfers or when enough time for a full game is not available
The Legend Hill Driving Range is constructed to meet the standards of Nicklaus-designed courses, including a full set of technical standard of the USGA (United States Golf Association) recommendations for methods of putting green construction. For more than 40 years the USGA recommendations have been the most widely used throughout the United States and in other parts of the world.
All sand bunkers in the driving range are built the same as bunkers in the Legend Hill Golf Course. The chosen species of grass for the driving range is Platinum Paspalum that has been used at Do Son Seaside Golf Resort (another BRG property) and has proven to be one of the best playing surfaces in this region. The species is able to stand up to the strong summer heat and cool wet winters experienced in Northern Vietnam, by maintaining a true green year round.
Golfers can make a swing from many different positions on the driving range towards many greens in a variety of lengths, the driving range is also a perfect place to learn how to overcome the sand bunkers which are designed to protect the greens. For those who want to improve their short games, there is one specific place that they can pratice technique and master short game. Next to that place is a system of undulating greens that are surrounded by numerous sand bunkers for golfer to pratice many ways to approach the greens. In opposite to the green putting practice area is a couple of bunkers in the middle of fairway for players to try to hit the ball out of the bunker.
With the opening of the international standard driving range, BRG has continued to bring a world class golf experience to Vietnam.
Legend Hill Golf Resort located 30km from Ha Noi or 10 km from the Noi Bai International Airport in the foot of Soc Mountain, Soc Son District. The golf course is the first Nicklaus Design course in Viet Nam.
