Comments: The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip, Golf Course designed by Greg Norman is positioned in the town of Ho Tram 120km south, south east of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip golf course offers 18 holes of ‘links style’ championship quality golf, and an promising 2300sqm clubhouse with hospitality outlets and a driving range with PGA Golf Instruction.  The Golf course site sits perched on coastal sand dune topography with elevation changes ranging from +5m to +50m at its highest point at the top of the clubhouse. The ground surface is total sand base with limited vegetation. The golf course is exposed to high winds and seasonal inclement weather and storms, which will create an atmosphere of exclusivity, luxury, prestige and anonymity for the opulent golfer. Reciprocal access to this club is restricted to seven (7) day members only.

Danang Golf Club

Comments: The Dunes course is situated on the fledgling central coast of Vietnam amid 150 hectares of dunescape similar to what the world’s first golf courses were carved from. Its chief feature is a 7,160-yard, 18-hole, links-style layout that was designed in the true spirit of the game — blown-out bunkers, firm and fast fairways that bleed gently into wild seaside vegetation, rugged waste areas, swales and hollows — by Australian golf legend and former world No. 1 Greg Norman. It lies in close proximity to two of Vietnam’s most historic destinations — UNESCO World Heritage sites Hoi An and Hue — and offers breathtaking views of the Marble Mountains, East Sea and Cham Islands When Greg Norman checked in on the progress of the Dunes Course, in March 2010, he said: "The fact is, you'd be doing a very poor job to make a boring course out of a site like this." Certainly Mother Nature had a gigantic hand in the formation of a layout that evokes an experience often found in seaside courses in the British Isles and southeastern Australia. But make no mistake: This is Vietnam. One look at the stunning, par-3 16th hole – back-dropped as it is by traditional, long-tail fishing boats that troll the warm waters of the East Sea – is all it takes. Reciprocal access to this club is restricted to seven (7) day members only.
