Bookended by the World Heritage-listed cities of Hoi An and Hue, Danang has emerged as the world’s newest and most exciting golf tourism destination.
Ask any reputable golf course designer to nominate his favourite type of land for a new or existing course, and chances are he’ll say, “Duneland beside the sea.”
This is, after all, the DNA of some of the world’s great golf courses … in Scotland, England, Ireland, southern Australia and the northwest coast of the United States.
But classic links land, featuring sand dunes that separate the coast from productive agricultural country further inland, is almost impossible to find in Asia. So when former world No. 1 players Greg Norman and Nick Faldo and eight-time European Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie separately discovered seaside duneland in Vietnam, they each jumped at the chance to put their name on a course there.
