Eight-time European Order of Merit winner and 2010 Ryder Cup-winning captain Colin Montgomerie designed this challenging course. When playing the course you get to realise just how many bunkers feature on every hole of this layout and there are also seven lakes. Although ‘links’ is in the course’s name and description, Montgomerie has put his modern touch to a traditional links environment.
The par-3 2nd is relatively long and surrounded by a native casuarina forest but you have to be careful with club selection because of the wind. The par-3 fifth, in comparison, is much shorter and you need to hit across the water to land on the green. Luckily the landing area is generous although be careful not to overshoot the green as there is thick vegetation guarding its back. The par-5 12th is a beauty and requires three strategically placed shots to get your way around the bunkers and once on the green you’re almost guaranteed an uphill putt. Playing slightly uphill to a bunker-riddled fairway, the hole is framed by the clubhouse in the background and has been described as the best par-5 in Vietnam.
The finishing hole is superb although the longest at 538 metres and it’s a real possibility to get a birdie on the hole before retiring to the clubhouse in high spirits. Long hitters will want to go for the green in two, if only just to try and avoid a number of left and right hand side fairway bunkers, but be prepared for an undulating and elevated green. Facilities include villas, modern clubhouse, driving range, pro shop, sauna, Jacuzzi, restaurant & bar and member’s lounge.
