SUNDAY 25th AUGUST 2024

HOIANA SHORES GOLF CLUB

Breakfast is included at your hotel, as well as private return transfers to /from Hoiana Shores Golf Club

HOIANA SHORES GOLF CLUB—Designer Robert Trent Jr.

The golf course is a manufactured links-style course that, unusually for Vietnam, includes more than just a brief glimpse of the water. Here the 15th green through 18th tee are all directly adjacent the beach, with waste bunkers shaped into the natural sandy areas.

While the greens at Hoiana Shores are grassed with Tif-Eagle Bermuda, all the fairways and tees feature the Zeon Zoysia, a relatively new, drought-tolerant turfgrass strain specially developed to provide firm, fast conditions in equatorial regions like this one. The project itself is located a short drive from the UNESCO World-Heritage listed town of Hoi An..

FULL DAY GUIDED DA NANG CITY TOUR & HOI AN TOWN with LUNCH

Da Nang is a coastal city in central Vietnam known for its sandy beaches and history as a French colonial port. It’s a popular base for visiting the inland Bà Nà hills to the west of the city. Here the hillside Hải Vân Pass has views of Da Nang Bay and the Marble Mountains.

Hội An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shophouses and temples to colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda.

EVENING: Tonight join your host and other tour guests for a Welcome Dinner – Drinks Included

MONDAY 26th AUGUST 2024

BRG DA NANG GOLF COURSE

Breakfast is included at your hotel, as well as private return transfers to /from BRG Da Nang Golf Club

BRG DA NANG GOLF COURSE—Designer Jack Nicklaus

The Nicklaus Course offers a good test of golf and offers a different style of golf from the original Norman Course, which plays in Dunes and Ocean settings. Most of the golf property is low lying and part of a floodplain, so the entire Nicklaus course stands out among swamps and paddy fields. Several of the holes play adjacent to the Coco River with great views of the surrounding villages and back to Danang City.

A series of interconnected lakes and creeks meander throughout the course with wooden walls framing the holes and separating the greens from the surrounding water hazards. These bullheads are unique and give the Nicklaus Course a distinctly Floridian feel.

Although water is abundant throughout the course, the fairways, landing areas, and greens are generously broad.

FULL DAY GUIDED BANA FRENCH VILLAGE, CABLE CAR, GOLDEN BRIDGE TOUR with LUNCH

Da Nang French village is located at the Bana Hills. The village is a remnant from the 19th century and was built in purely European architectural style. The inspiration for the design is taken from the French architecture and then was built in the pure Gothic style which was very much common in the 19th century. One can reach the top of the Bana hills via cable car. Hills are at an approximate altitude of 1487 m right above the sea level. It is the longest cable car in the world

TUESDAY 27th AUGUST 2024

LAGUNA LANG CO GOLF COURSE

Breakfast is included at your hotel, as well as private return transfers to /from Laguna Langco Golf Club

LAGUNA LANG CO GOLF COURSE—Designer Nick Faldo

One of the sternest tests in all of Asia, Laguna is essentially arranged in a large loop with holes set across sandy scrublands, along winding streams and through heavily vegetated forested areas . Although the 9th hole gets nearest the ocean, and plays alongside its beach, mostly the golf here is built away from the water, but none the poorer for it. The key talking point at Laguna Golf are the greens and bunkers. There are acres of sand traps across the course. Some bunkers are small and located within internal playing zones but most traps are vast and either framing a particular shot or set to make holes more intimidating. Critics might suggest bunkers are too dominant on the shorter par fours and par fives, and often simplify the playing strategy down to merely trying to avoid the sand. They are clearly more troublesome for average golfers than for elite players.

NO INCLUDED ARRANGEMENTS TODAY

THURSDAY 29th AUGUST 2024

MONTGOMERIE LINKS GOLF COURSE

Breakfast is included at your hotel, as well as private return transfers to /from Montgomerie Links Golf Club

MONTGOMERIE LINKS GOLF COURSE—Designer Colin Montgomery

Montgomerie Links has outstanding natural features. The sandy soil, wind-blown dunes, and indigenous vegetation combine in creating the framework for this links-style golf course along the Vietnam East Sea. A product of Royal Troon in Scotland, a British Open rotation mainstay, Monty has implemented classic, old-world design elements into the Danang golf course, such as rolling, treeless fairways, thick rough, massive greens, and tight chipping areas. The only departure from tradition comes in several lakes and streams, a must when considering the region’s seasonably high water table. The course caters to players of all abilities as holes routed through an incredibly natural formation of dunes, heartlands, and seaside vegetation.

NON-GOLFERS: FULL DAY GUIDED HUE ANCIENT CITY TOUR with LUNCH .

Discover many cultural, historical, rural and architectural highlights of this magnificent place, with the assistance of your knowledgeable guide. Visit the impressive royal tombs, ancient pagodas and the romantic Perfume River. Pass through vibrant local markets and explore must-see spots on this full day tour. Taste traditional Hue cuisine with lunch at a local restaurant.

FRIDAY 30th AUGUST 2024

BA NA HILLS GOLF COURSE

Breakfast is included at your hotel, as well as private return transfers to /from Ba Na Golf Club

BA NA HILLS GOLF COURSE—Designer Luke Donald

This is the newest kid on the block and is rapidly earning a reputation as one of the best golf courses in the area. The course is unique for a number of reasons – it’s the first course in the world which carries the name of the former number one golfer, Luke Donald and it’s also the first and only course in Danang which has floodlights covering all 18 holes. Ba Na Hills Golf Club is a mountain-style course with plenty of elevation changes and a great variety of landscaping with superb views from many of the tee boxes framed by the surrounding hills. It’s quite along course measuring just under 7,900 yards but most golfers, whatever their handicap, will enjoy playing here. The opening 9 holes are a more traditional and flatter parkland layout but things get more difficult and in some ways more interesting on the inward nine with more undulations and doglegs meaning you will be reaching for most of the clubs in your bag.

NON-GOLFERS: FREE DAY

EVENING: Presentation Drinks and Finger Food
