BRG Da Nang Golf Resort is located on the coast in central Vietnam. The Dunes course opened in 2010 and is the first links style course in Southeast Asia, having won various awards including Best Golf Course in Vietnam 2014 and Best Managed Course 2015.
The course, designed by golfing legend Greg Norman, is set on 150 hectares of dunescape and is close to Hoi An and Hue, as well as being just 12 miles south of Danang International airport.
Greg Norman has fully embraced the natural landscape, creating an excellent course which can is, in parts, reminiscent of links golf in the UK. Its location directly on the coast ensures golfers are met with some strong coastal crosswinds, providing a tough test and requiring extra thought with club selection. The fairways vary as you make your way round the course with some lined by long needle pines and some generously open with immaculate Bermuda Evergreen grass to aim for. The Bermuda Tiffdwarf used on the greens keep the surface fast and true, with gentle undulation keeping shot selection key. The signature hole at BRG Da Nang Golf Resort is the par-3 16th which plays up to an elevated green which offers views of the incredible Marble Mountains, East Sea and Charm Islands. The green is protected by two incredibly deep bunkers and the headwind from the coast behind is sure to take you reconsider going for the front of the green - if you can use spin to your advantage, a birdie is on, but a par is more than respectable.Stats:
