Hòn Tre island, just off the east coast of Vietnam, was used in the past to detain criminals in a purpose built jail but nowadays it’s better known as the location for Vinpearl Land, an impressive 5-star resort that’s operated by Vietnamese billionaire and property developer Pham Nhat Vuong.

For those in a rush to get onto the first tee, Vinpearl - Nha Trang can be accessed in under ten minutes from the mainland by the Vinpearl Cable Car system, a series of 47 small cabins that transport guests to and from the island via nine Eiffel Tower-shaped steel pillars, out across the sparkling waters of Nha Trang Bay.

The golf course was laid out by IMG – the company that also designed the highly rated Dalat Palace and Tam Dao courses – and it first opened for play in 2012, five years after Vinpearl Land accepted its first resort visitors.

With spectacular views of the beautiful sandy bay from every hole on the course, the fairways have been seeded with Seashore Paspalum, an environmentally friendly grass that thrives in a seaside location with saltier water conditions.

Contenders for signature hole on the layout include the long and tough par four 4th and the lovely par three 16th, where the South China Sea provides a panoramic backdrop for the hole.

Vin Pearl - Nha Trang is an adventure to get to and to play. Lakes and luxuriant vegetation Vinpearl - Nha Trang Golf Course - Photo by reviewer border the fairways.

The course is a very fair test and from the various tees should be enjoyed by all. A great experience is guaranteed with the right weather.

I played this course on a 3 weeks trip to Vietnam with friends in jan 2012. It is spectacular in every sense. First of all we arrived at the 1st Tee via a private speed boat & a ‘stretched’ golf buggy.. very James bond. As the editor has said above, Vinpearl-Nha Trang Golf Course - Photo by reviewerevery hole has amassing views out to sea & back to the main line were the epic sky-cable car comes into view. The greens were extremely fast & you can tell that the moisture sapping wind & hot Asia’s sun makes these greens tough for the green keepers to stop turning into a surface no dissimilar to putting on glass. The wind is a big factor on this course as many holes are exposed & this coupled with the water on almost every hole means big scores can be racked up pretty fast if your driving is off key. The course is staffed by an army of females caddies as seems to be common place in Vietnam. Play here if you get the chance. One of the best courses I’ve ever seen. The closest thing in this life to playing 18-holes in Jurassic park!
