Officially opened by its designer, 6-time Major winner Sir Nick Faldo, in March of 2013, the Laguna Lãng Cô course is situated on the East Sea coastline, midway between the former imperial capital of Hue and Vietnam’s third largest city, Danang.
This golf facility marks another milestone in the development of the Central Coast region as a major tourism destination and it forms the sporting centerpiece at an upmarket resort that includes Banyan Tree and Angsana branded hotels and other accommodation options.
The 26th worldwide design project completed by its esteemed designer, Laguna Lãng Cô nestles between mountain and sea on a wonderfully sandy strip of dune land, with some commentators calling it Faldo’s boldest and best creation so far.
“The course is everything we thought it would be, and even better,” architect Nick Faldo said during an inspection with lead architect, Paul Jansen. “There are six different environments, which give players an experience like no other – rice paddy, woodland, water, beach, sand and what I call ‘blowout’ areas.”“There’s something in it for everyone, as well as exceptional views all the way around. I believe it will hold up against the better courses in this region and maybe the world.”
