Ba Na Hills Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2016

Ba Na Hills Golf Club is located in the forested foothills of the jungle-clad Ba Na Hills mountain range, about a 25-minute drive west of central Da Nang. Keep going a few kilometres further west, and you reach the French-themed replica village, which makes Ba Na Hills one of Vietnam's top recreational attractions.

The par-72 championship golf course, which can stretch to almost 8,000 yards from the tips, was crafted by English professional golfer Luke Donald. Beyond the region's stunning scenery, there are many aspects of Donald's first major design project to admire and enjoy. Principal among these is the bold impressive grass-faced bunkering, usually visible from the tees and as you approach the greens.

Donald's elegant layout includes a flatter front-nine loop, which is parkland in style. The back-nine loop takes you on a more expansive journey, winding its way through the twists and turns of the surrounding hillside.

Water begins to threaten on the final trio of holes on the front side, and maintains a regular presence on the back-nine. The signature hole is the par-3 16th, which plunges downhill to an island green. But for the pole-mounted floodlighting, this would be as natural a tree-lined course as you could wish to play ... the compensation is the fun of night golf.

Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
