Golf Courses on Riches of the Mekong Golf River Tour
The Bluffs at Ho Tranh
Vung Tau, Vietnam
The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip was designed to capture the true essence of links-style golf. Set on the coastline – as almost all great links courses are – The Bluffs is routed over and around towering sand dunes, which have been shaped over thousands of years by the elements. The wind plays a major role in the experience here; it’s always strong, and its prevailing direction differs depending on the time of year.
“This is one of only two pieces of land of this quality and character I have ever been given to work with – the other being Doonbeg in Ireland,” Norman said.“ I’m a firm believer in using what Mother Nature gives us on a particular site. This one has it all. The experience of playing true links golf among the dunes of southern Vietnam and having dramatic ocean views throughout your round will make The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world.”
Vietnam Golf and Country Club East Course
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
Vietnam Golf & Country Club is the first 36-hole golf club in Vietnam and is widely regarded as Vietnam’s Premier Golf and Country Club. Located just 20 kilometres from the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Golf and Country Club is also the nearest golf club to the city. Set amongst 300 hectares of land, two great golf courses have been carved out of the existing woodland with minimal land movement, leaving you to feel that the land was always destined to be a golf course, so natural is the lay-out and design.
Lee Trevino, six-time Major Champion Winner (US Open 1968,1971, USPGA Championship 1974, 1984 and The Open Championship 1971 and 1972), designed the East Course which opened in September 1997. The East Course offers more generous fairways than the West Course but is protected by well-positioned bunkers, water hazards and undulating Bermuda greens.
Angkor Golf Club
Siem Reap, Cambodia
The beauty of Cambodia lies in the richness of its traditions. The elegance of golf comes from its strategy, honour and skills. At Angkor Golf Resort these essential characteristics are combined… and a unique tradition begins at one of the world’s great new golf destinations.
Angkor Golf Resort provides all level of golfers with a challenging and fair test of golf. The par 72, 7279-yard championship course has seashore paspalum grass throughout the course allowing for an exceptional playing surface and enjoyable round. Practice facilities include a 300 yards driving range, with target greens and practice putting green and chipping area.
Vinperl Hai Phong
Hai Phong, Vietnam
Vinpearl Golf Hai Phong is situated in the heart of the beautiful island of Vu Yen, located just off the city of Hai Phong – the third largest city in Vietnam and northern Vietnam’s most important seaport, positioned 120 km from Hanoi. Set amid the 872 hectares of Vingroup’s Vu Yen Island Ecotourism Area and crisscrossed by three rivers, in addition to the 36-hole championship golf course, the island features eco-villas, an ecological park, amusement complex and a cable car system stretching 1.5 kilometres to link the mainland and the Island.
Designed by IMG Worldwide, the 36-hole championship golf course features two distinct courses “Lakeside” and “Marshland”, challenging players of all levels. Lakeside, a scenic resort-style course with a plethora of interconnected lakes, coming into play on 12 holes with generous fairways and large undulating greens. Marshland, a shot-makers golf course specifically designed to be in harmony with the carefully preserved open wetlands, has been established with a different character to complement its companion.
Sky Lake Golf Club
The Sky Course is the work of Bori Golf Design Ltd and lead designer Mr Ahn Moon Hwan. The natural beauty of the landscape has been used to create continuity and consistency throughout the design. Subtle use of different elevations and aspects create a true and honest test of golf.
The signature hole of the Sky course is the 15th, aptly named Dien Bien Phu (a historic Vietnamese battle) due to its topography and difficulty.This hole is a true risk and reward experience that promises to become one of the more famous holes in the region.

Golfers will enjoy playing at the Angkor Golf Resort. The 18-hole golf course which is designed by Nick Faldo comprises an area of 142 hectares (7279 yards) land and it is an ideal location to play golf in Cambodia.
Highlights include the 2nd hole with the golfer having to pay attention to their drive. The approach shot to the smallest green on the course is tightly guarded by bunkers and palm trees. The par 5, 13th hole is designed with sand in mind, great cavernous bunkers on the tee shot and second shot await the golfer giving this hole a dramatic look and very strategic S shape.
Angkor Golf Resort offers the discerning golfer a championship golf course accompanied with 350 yards driving range with target greens. The clubhouse open plan layout and glass fronted design brings an exciting sense of being at the heart of a very special place. A fully stocked pro shop offers golfers a souvenir to return home with.
Located just 17 kilometers from the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Golf & Country Club is one the nearest golf clubs to the city center. Vietnam Golf & Country Club is set amongst 300 hectares of land and includes two championship golf courses. Both courses play through mature woodlands with minimal land movement.
Open since November 1995, the 7,106-yard West Course at Vietnam Golf & Country Club features narrow tree-lined fairways and fast level greens. The par-72 championship course was Taiwanese designed and hosted the Vietnam Open Asian PGA Tour events in both 1995 and 1997.
The course winds its way through mostly oil palm trees offering challenging tee shots to narrow landing areas. Several holes also feature a lone tree in the center of the fairway. Even from the regular men’s tees, this course can provide a very long afternoon of golf, especially if drives are not on target.
The second course at Vietnam Golf & Country Club is the 6,946-yard East Course. Designed by Lee Trevino and opened in 1997, the East Course offers more generous fairways than the West Course but includes 110 well-positioned bunkers, water hazards, and undulating fast-rolling Bermuda Tifdwarf greens. The layout is so challenging even a seasoned tour pro will think twice before ‘going for it’.
