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 ... many 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 no invasive real estate!

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.
