South-central Binh Dinh province has lobbied MPI for FLC Group's 18-hole golf course to be included in the government's development planning for golf courses to 2020.
The Binh Dinh People's Committee has submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Planning and Investment for it to add a new golf course in the south-central province to the development plan for Vietnam's golf courses to 2020.
The 18-hole course is part of the $162 million Nhon Ly resort, villa and luxury entertainment complex in Quy Nhon city, developed by the FLC Group.
FLC plans to build the course on area of 100 hectares within the general planning for the 300-hectare project, which comprises villas, a six-star resort, a five-star restaurant, an international conference center, and an entertainment complex. Construction will begin on May 19 and take three years.
At a recent ceremony granting an investment certificate to the project the provincial government committed to offering favorable conditions to the investor and will direct its Management Board and relevant agencies to facilitate investment procedures so the project can proceed on schedule.
The provincial government has previously suggested that other golf courses, such as nine-hole course at the Phu Hoa tourism, general sports, and urban area complex, and the 18-hole course at the Vinpearl Quy Nhon project also be added to the government's golf course development plan.
Under the Prime Minister's direction, to be listed a golf course must be developed by investors with strong financial resources, be built in areas with major tourism potential, and must not use agricultural land.
