The Dunes course at Da Nang Golf Club, comprising the Dune and Ocean nines, is located on Vietnam's central coast, just south of the city of Danang. As its name implies, the course is a predominantly open layout, sculpted in the grand links tradition. The two nine-hole loops are complemented by the slightly shorter Riverside-nine. Directly to the south is the Montgomerie Links.

Blown-out bunkers, firm and fast fairways, wild seaside vegetation, rugged dunes and waste areas, swales and hollows, and plantings of pine, all feature strongly in Greg Norman's testing design. Wind can be a major factor on this stretch of the central coast, helping to tighten up the course and put added pressure on your shot-making. As if a typically challenging Greg Norman design needed any tightening-up!

Most of the time you are tucked in behind a residential development of smart villas, which separate the course from the sea ... thankfully the homes don't detract from the expansive look or playability of the course itself.

At the par-4 15th the layout makes a brief bolt for the beach. You're rewarded with the beachfront short par-3 16th overlooking the East Vietnam Sea. But all too quickly its back inland along the par-4 17th (trisected by two small rivers), and the end of the layout's brief encounter with the seashore.

Did you know?

Roughly in the centre of Vietnam's eastern seaboard, looking out onto the East Vietnam Sea, you'll find the country's sixth largest city, Da Nang. Within a short drive from the city is a growing and impressive hub of "links" golf courses.

Amongst their number, and in the vicinity of the town of Hoi An (south of Da Nang) are: Danang GC (design by Greg Norman), Montgomerie Links (by Monty), Vinpearl Nam Hoi An (IMG Design), and now Hoiana Shores (RTJ Jr). Just north of Da Nang is the Nick Faldo designed Laguna Lang Co.

Heading inland, and on the way to a "must visit" French-themed mountain village, is the "must play" Ba Na Hills layout by Luke Donald. 250 km north of Da Nang you'll find Quang Binh, and two recent designs by Schmidt-Curley. 300 km to the south, there's also Quy Nhon Links, with coastal links courses by Nicklaus Design and Schmidt-Curley.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
