Welcome to Danang Golf Club and welcome to a place where golf’s history is revered as much as the game itself.

Welcome to Danang Golf Club and welcome to a place where golf’s history is revered as much as the game itself.
Here, along Vietnam’s stunning Central Coast and amid a wild, seaside landscape almost identical to what the world’s first golf courses were carved from, an experience was crafted as much by Mother Nature as it was by the legendary Greg Norman. In other words, it’s links-style golf in the truest sense of the term. And it’s here, in Asia, for the very first time, for golfers to enjoy.

The Dune Course: When Greg Norman checked in on the progress of the Dunes Course, in March 2010, he said: “The fact is, you’d be doing a very poor job to make a boring course out of a site like this.” Certainly Mother Nature had a gigantic hand in the formation of a layout that evokes an experience often found in seaside courses in the British Isles and southeastern Australia. But make no mistake: This is Vietnam. One look at the stunning, par-3 16th hole – back-dropped as it is by traditional, long-tail fishing boats that troll the warm waters of the East Sea – is all it takes.

Score Card: The Dunes Course at Danang Golf Club is a true – but fair – test of golf. The 18-hole, par-72 layout measures as short as 5,684 yards (Ladies tees) and as long as 7,160 yards (Shark tees), providing all levels of golfers a challenging but fun experience. Its signature hole is the par-3 16th, which plays slightly uphill to a green back-dropped by the East Sea and Cham Islands. Its longest hole is the par-5 10th, a mesmerizing journey between epic sand dunes and toward the iconic Marble Mountains.

Greg Norman Golf Course Design

When it comes to professional golf achievements, few players in the history of the game are in the same category as Greg Norman. During his prime, he won 86 international titles, including two British Opens. In 1987, The Shark (as he came to be known) took his profound knowledge of the game and made the official jump into the design industry. He formed Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) and the rest is history. Over the past quarter century, GNGCD has created more than 70 courses on six continents and established a reputation for imaginative designs that acknowledge golf’s traditional origins and the landscapes on which it has been played.

The Clubhouse: Like the design of the course, the 3,800-square-meter clubhouse echoes the gently tiered contours of the dune topography on which it is set, as well as the plateau of Marble Mountains in the distance. Glass curtain walls and meshed cladding enhance the sense of a natural, spontaneous transition from exterior to interior, an atmosphere that is inviting rather than grandiose. Under roof, food and beverage options – including a private dining room, member’s terrace and hip bar and café – make for a “19th hole” on par with the most amenity-rich resorts in Asia.

Practice Facility

With 18 covered hitting bays, a 3,000-square-meter grass tee area, a 1,600-square-meter chipping/putting green and two practice bunkers, the practice facility at Danang Golf Club offers the ideal environment in which to hone your game. Toss in a pair of “swing studios” – spaces with video analysis and custom club-fitting devices that allow players to see and correct their swing flaws and discover what sticks are best suited to their game – and you’ve got all a golfer could ever want. Driving range hours are from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., daily. The facility includes a fully stocked pro shop, sleek locker rooms and the distinctive Dormie Bar & Bistro.
