Located only 10km from Dalat Airport in Central Vietnam, about a 30-minute flight north from Ho Chi Minh City, The Dalat At 1200 Country Club & Private Estate is a leasehold eco-tourism project. As its name proclaims, it is situated at the elevation of 1,200 meters above sea level with an average temperature of 21oC (71oF) and constant fresh air and low humidity.
Within its 1000 ha land of hilly pine forest surrounding a 180 hectare lake, this hill-station resort will comprise of a private golf club featuring 18 to 36-holes golf course, club house, golf academy, private estate villas, five-star international hotel, attractions and facilities upon completion.
The development is jointly owned by Centurion Group and its local partner. To be developed in phases, the 18-hole golf course will be able to play in second half of 2015 and the club house in first half of 2016.
This 18-holes golf course is perfectly shaped into the eco environment of Da Lat, which gives the course a unique ecologic vibe. Peter Rousseau’s concept is to keep the site as natural as possible when designing a golf course, preserving the beautiful trees, some of the paddy fields and other water features. At the same time, enhance it with more exotic flora and fauna and to utilize the many natural springs, waterfalls and smaller lakes. He created a perfect balance between artistry and the strategic elements of the game.
The fairways are like carpet and the greens are in great shape and fast, many multi-level greens made putting on many holes locations very difficult. The golf course is set up so you will have to make hundreds of decisions. There’s lots of trouble potential with sand bunkers and water hazards strategically placed that requires you to plan and concentrate carefully before every shot. Some holes look down across a lake at hills and trees that make you feel you are walking in the wilderness. The green is down about 300 feet below and requires a shot that isn’t one you practice daily.
While the rest of Southeast Asia is in its hot season from April to October, the conditions and cooler weather of Da Lat are perfect for golf. You can play in shorts and a polo shirt and hardly break a sweat all through the day.
Designed to produce the optimal putting surface, the greens feature a high-grade Bent grass, normally reserved for tournament courses, so that golfers can enjoy the ultimate tour player’s experience.
With a certified curriculum, qualified teachers and world-class facilities, our Asian Tour Performance Golf Institute provides the very highest level of golfing instruction. The on-site Institute offers everything you want from a short game facility, including state-of-the-art simulators, natural turf hitting bays and a 350-yard flat range.
Unlike most other clubs, The Da Lat At 1200 Country Club & Private Estate offers comfortable short stay accommodation for members, their families and friends. With 38 private bedrooms, an elegantly furnished living space and large balcony, short stays are sociable and fun for everyone.
