Vietnam Golf And Country Club
Location: Long Thanh My Ward, District 9, Ho Chi Minh City, just 20km from downtown.
Characteristic: The 300ha club has two 18-hole golf courses and the Lakeview Villas complex. Vietnam Golf and Country Club is one of the favourite destinations of Vietnamese and foreign golfers.
Occupying 150 ha, the West and East courses, opened in late 1994 and 1997 respectively, impress players with their designs. The West Course follows the Asian tradition of narrow, tree-lined fairways and fast, smooth greens with 12 artificial lakes in a poetic landscape. The East Course features Western-style architecture and offers long, wide fairways with well placed bunkers and water hazards plus challenging, undulating greens.
Many tournaments have been fought out on these lawns. Right after the West Course’s opening, the Asia
Professional Golf Tournament took place there in 1995 and 1996.
With the competitions, the club has also received top golfers of many Southeast Asian countries. Overall, the club has welcomed 700,000 players so far. Of them, 500,000 are members.
Both East and West courses have become popular among foreign tourists who come to Vietnam through arranged golf tours. Most of the players have given their thumbs-up to the club’s services and quality. Besides the two courses, the club has 59 luxurious, spacious and well-furnished villas of Western design.
The fresh air, tranquility, safety and world-class facilities surrounded by green grass are certain to enthrall guests. Close to the golf courses, most villas look out to the 12 ha natural Dai Vien Lake. Many senior officers of companies in industrial parks and export processing zones in Ho Chi Minh City and the neighbouring provinces of Dong Nai and Binh Duong have moved into the Lakeview Villas. The villas are also home to specialists and their families from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, France, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong...
All tenants are allowed to use the open-air Sports Club and get discounts when playing golf. In addition, the Vietnam Golf and Country Club has a restaurant, a driving range, a tennis court, a badminton court, boats and a playground area for children.
