Stone Valley Golf Resort (in Vietnamese Sân Golf Kim Bảng): Around an hour's drive south of Hanoi, the first stages of this inland golf and resort development are now in place. Many accolades are being heaped on Brian Curley's 18-hole course design, with another 18 holes slated for the near future. The golf is to be complemented by a resort villa area.
The golf course occupies a picturesque 200-hectare valley, which is surrounded by jungle-clad hills and folding ridges, interspersed with dramatic pop-up limestone hills. Although the site offers several dramatic elevation changes, the master craftsmanship of Brian Curley ensures a walkable course has been created.
The front-nine loop is characterised by a flatter, broader valley, where water and rock features play their part. Some holes have exposed sharp-edged rocks resembling lava fields.
In contrast, the back-nine climbs into steeper terrain, from where you can enjoy views across the course. The layout builds to a fabulous finish, with the last four holes playing from the highest elevations, which offer spectacular mountain and valley views. The par-3 17th and long par-4 18th four eighteenth play around the original quarry site.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Stone Valley was developed by the Truong An Golf Company as their first golf course in Vietnam. The near-200 hectare site lies in a region known for river tours that weave through valleys between jungle-clad mountains. The area has served as the location for feature films, including King Kong.
