Review for BRG Da Nang (Norman)

Reviewer Score:


This is my favorite course in Vietnam although I do concede that Ho Tram deserves to be ranked number 1 if that makes sense. This course differs from many throughout Asia as it blends in perfectly with its surroundings and is actually walk able not that many choose to walk due to the heat.

The course runs over mildly undulating land with a great mix of holes I found the par 5’s to be the class of the course all head in different directions and have different characteristics the 10th that zig zags through large dunes is probably the best of them.

The par 4’s have great variety all different lengths and challenges the short 14th is a cracker drive able from the elevate tee however you need to clear the central bunker which is exactly where you wish it wasn’t there is plenty of room either side of the bunker to hit which side is best depends on the days pin position.

The 16th is the signature hole and the pick of the par 3’s a short hole with the beach and ocean behind with islands in the distance this hole has a wildly undulating green that provides the challenge this is the only time this course touches the shorefront.

During a recent visit I played the new Nicklaus 9 that bills itself as Asia’s first bulkhead course having imported the bulkheads from Florida I found this 9 very odd it works its way around a lake and seems to have water and bulkheads left on almost every hole except the par 3’s which are water carry the whole way everyone I spoke to at the club hated the new 9 and while the Dunes course was packed I was literally the only golfer on the Nicklaus 9.

Having played extensively in Vietnam my top 5 would be

Bluffs Ho Tram

BRG Danang Dunes

Cam Ranh (Great new course near Nha Trang it may be the best)

Ba Na Hills

Quy Nhon (Mountain)

And in the Da Nang area

BRG Danang Dunes

Ba Na Hills

Laguna Lang Co

Nam Hoi An (New course worth a round outstanding facilities)

Montgomerie Links (This is still a good course just not as good)
