Officially known as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the Vietnamese nation has emerged strongly following 30 years of war, which thankfully ended in the mid-1970s. The country now enjoys strong economic growth, and with its long South China Sea coastline and river deltas, the country can now focus on its pure and natural beauty. With divine beaches, towering mountains and vibrant cities, it is no wonder that Vietnam is fast becoming one of the world’s most exciting destinations.
In 2007, at Kings' Island Golf Club, the Vietnam Golf Association was formed and there are now more than 5,000 registered Vietnamese golfers, but the vast majority are either foreigners or ex-pats. Vietnam now boasts around forty golf courses, with many more in the construction stages. With its varied topography and long coastline, Vietnam has become a serious golfing country, especially with the 2018 opening of Cam Ranh Links.
Brian Curley-designed courses recently opened at FLC Quang Binh –
Forest Dunes in 2018 and Ocean Dunes the following year. The RTJII-designed Hoiana Shores also opened in the same timeframe and it too promises to make our next Vietnam chart.
