Vingroup has announced it intends to attract even more golfers and tourists to Vietnam through its golf course developments.

“It’s the most ambitious move anyone here has ever made to put Vietnam on the world golf map,” said Mr. Niklas Robinson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Vingroup’s golf division, Vinpearl Golf. “The landscape here has always been conducive to golf. We are committed to unlocking its potential and delivering a suite of products as good as any you’ll find elsewhere.”

Vinpearl Golf currently has two golf developments in its portfolio: Vinpearl Golf Nha Trang, a hilly, resort-style layout overlooking a secluded bay on Hon Tre Island, just off the coast of Nha Trang, and Vinpearl Golf Phu Quoc, a 27-hole facility that opened last year and is situated within an old-growth forest on the north end of Phu Quoc Island, the country’s top island destination.

Both courses were conceived by IMG, one of the world’s premier golf course design companies. And the next Vinpearl Golf project to come on line will have IMG’s fingerprints on it as well.

Vingroup is currently developing courses near Hanoi and Hai Phong. The Vu Yen Golf Community, located in Hai Phong, will offer two distinct championship courses, with one routed through marshland and the other featuring an abundance of lakes. On the outskirts of Hanoi, the multi-course Vinpearl Golf complex is taking shape and when finished will include 54 holes along the Red River. Both are expected to debut in October.

The group plans to do the same in Quy Nhon and Can Tho for the sole purpose of attracting golfers to two of southern Vietnam’s most compelling destinations.
