HÀ NỘI — Bà Nà Hills Golf Club was voted Asia’s Best Golf Course 2017 at the ceremony of the World Golf Awards held in Spain last weekend.
The Đà Nẵng course beat out 11 nominees, including Angkor Golf Resort of Cambodia, Black Mountain Championship Golf Course of Thailand and The 27 Club of China to take the title.
Bà Nà Hills was also selected as Việt Nam’s Best Golf Course of the year, besting Đà Lạt Golf Palace and Laguna Golf Lăng Cô and six other nominees.
It is the second year in a row that the club has been honoured at this event, which has become one of the most prestigious awards in the world of golf since it was held for the first time in 2014.
Last year, the Bà Nà Hills course was recognised as the World’s Best New Golf Course.
Designed by former world No 1 Luke Donald and managed by IMG, the par-72, 18-hole course is located at the foothills of the famed Bà Nà Hills on Việt Nam’s central coast, 25 minutes from downtown Đà Nẵng.
Its five sets of tees and balance of challenging and enjoyable terrain ensure players of all levels are assured a pleasurable round of golf.
Another Vietnamese winner at the Spanish ceremony was The Grand Hồ Tràm Strip, named the World’s Best Golf Hotel. Việt Nam was named Asia’s Best Golf Destination. — VNS
