Developed by VinaCapital and designed by Greg Norman, the Dunes course debuted in 2010, the first of two 18-hole championship layouts planned for Danang Golf Club.
The sandy soiled fairways on the Dunes course measure a total of 7,160 yards from the Shark tees and they lie on Vietnam’s central coast, next to My Khe Beach.
Highlight holes here include strong back-to-back par fives at the 4th and 5th and another long par five at the 10th that winds through dunes in the direction of the Marble Mountains. The 148-yard 16th is recognised as the signature hole, playing to a slightly raised green that’s framed by the East Sea and Cham Islands.
The Montgomerie Links course is located on an adjacent site to the Dunes fairways and both facilities are now being marketed, along with the new Nick Faldo design at Laguna Lang Co to the north of Danang, as must-play venues on the new Golf Coast Vietnam.
The tournament playing days of Norman, Montgomerie and Faldo are virtually over but all three golfing greats are still big draws when it comes to attracting golfing visitors to Vietnam.
