Hoiana Shores Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2019

Hoiana Shores Golf Club is a relatively recent addition to Vietnam's "golf coast", which lies mainly, but not exclusively, a few miles south of Da Nang. The super-linksy layout was crafted by the prolific Robert Trent Jones Jr and his inexorable firm of golf course architects ... marking their first project in Vietnam.

If "pure links" conjures up thoughts of golfing directly beside the sea, with rolling fairways lacing their way through vast acreages of sand, then Hoiana Shores ticks the box. In this part of the world, monetising the beachfront land usually takes precedence over all other considerations. But here we are treated to six beachside golf holes ... more than is usually the case.

Built on a vast area of sandy duneland the two nine-hole loops contain very little water. But you'll find more dunes, sandy waste areas and "blowout" bunkers than you'd dare to imagine. Like many a wind-blown links, the green sites are suitably large and undulating.

As a nod to the winds that frequently fan this coast, the flagsticks are topped by red baskets (à la Merion GC) ... rather than flapping drapeaux. And all this framed by majestic views of the East Vietnam Sea, the offshore Cham Islands, and inland to the Truong Son (aka Annamite) mountains ... and very little invasive real estate!

Did you know?

Facing seaward, Hoiana Shores' luxurious two-storey clubhouse is just one of the impressive features of this excellent addition to the golfing scene around Da Nang and nearby Hội An.

The "Da Nang-Hội An" golf destination is now home to several of Vietnam's top-rated courses, designed (or at least co-designed) by some legends of the game. Danang GC boasts two championship courses, one by Nicklaus Design, the other by Greg Norman. In addition, there's Montgomerie Links (by Monty), Vinpearl Nam Hoi An (IMG Design), and Hoiana Shores (by Robert Trent Jones Jr).

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. Just north of Da Nang is the Nick Faldo-designed Laguna Lang Co, one of Vietnam's highest rated courses.

Published ranking

Vietnam's 4th best course (Golf Digest, 2022).
World's 94th best public access course (GOLF World, 2023).
