Played this course last week having already played Ocean Dunes and Sea Links, both of which are on the coast near Mui Ne, about 5 hours drive from Dalat. Dalat Palace is an absolute cracker and streets ahead of Ocean Dunes which is ranked no. 2 in Vietnam. Natural landscape, great hole after great hole, especially the SI 1 par 5, plus some outstanding par 4s and good par 3s. It was a real surprise to find a course this good in central Vietnam but its well worth a visit. Good greens and a nice cool climate....plus, due to its altitude the ball does travel a little further. Only thing on the downside is the hire clubs are pretty shabby so if at all possible bring your own. I'd put it up there with some of the best i've played not just in Asia but in the UK as well.
