Dalat Palace Golf Club has a long history, dating back to its inception in 1922 and including being revived twice following abandonment following the Second World War and the Vietnam conflict. Following US investment, it finally took on its current form in 1994 and is deservedly ranked amongst the very best courses in the country. Situated some 5000 feet above sea level, the course benefits from a cooler climate that allows the use of bent grass on the tees, fairways and greens - for many, this is the ultimate surface on which to play golf, and the only course in South East Asia to use it.

With water featuring on over half of the holes and plenty of well-placed sand traps, there is plenty to test the lower handicap golfer intent on taking on the course, while the high-handicappers can find some relief in the wide, open fairways and greens that allow run-up approach shots. If you can overcome the numerous elevations changes and reach the greens in regulation, par is never guaranteed thanks to the extreme pace of the putting surface. There are some tough holes here that will test your skills with all the clubs in your bag. The front nine features a particularly tricky sequence of holes: at the par-3 5th, your tee shot must carry 230-odd yards over water to reach the green, and on the par-5 6th, it's all about accuracy with water all the way down one side of the narrow fairway and out-of-bounds on the other. If all that wasn't enough, at the par-4 7th you can either try to carry two lakes from the tee or play it safe from the tee but leave yourself a long uphill approach. The original clubhouse, built in 1956, has been fully restored and contains spacious locker rooms, a well-stocked pro shop and a restaurant serving local and international fare with views from the clubhouse patio of the terraced rice fields and the pine forests that cover the mountains.

Given the challenge that you now know lies ahead, it's probably worth taking advantage of the on-site practice facilities that include a grass driving range, putting green and practice bunkers; be warned that even these bunkers won't fully prepare you for the unique challenges posed by the deep pot bunkers on the 15th fairway, which you are well advised to steer well clear of. All of this adds up to an impressive package, and it is no surprise to learn that Dalat Palace Golf Club has repeatedly been voted the top course in Vietnam by Golf Digest, and in the top ten in Asia by Asian Golf Monthly. Highly recommended.

Dalat Palace Golf Club

In the heart of Dalat

Reviewed by ; on
Interesting layout. Par 3 start then you don't see the club house to the 18th. Drink stations along the way. Plenty of water to make shot making decisions interesting. Very well maintained course and facilities.

    AdditionalDescription:  {  html:  'Dalat  Palace  Golf  Club  has  a  long  history,  dating  back  to  its  inception  in  1922  and  including  being  revived  twice  following  abandonment  following  the  Second  World  War  and  the  Vietnam  conflict.  Following  US  investment,  it  finally  took  on  its  current  form  in  1994  and  is  deservedly  ranked  amongst  the  very  best  courses  in  the  country.  Situated  some  5000  feet  above  sea  level,  the  course  benefits  from  a  cooler  climate  that  allows  the  use  of  bent  grass  on  the  tees,  fairways  and  greens  -  for  many,  this  is  the  ultimate  surface  on  which  to  play  golf,  and  the  only  course  in  South  East  Asia  to  use  it.    With  water  featuring  on  over  half  of  the  holes  and  plenty  of  well-placed  sand  traps,  there  is  plenty  to  test  the  lower  handicap  golfer  intent  on  taking  on  the  course,  while  the  high-handicappers  can  find  some  relief  in  the  wide,  open  fairways  and  greens  that  allow  run-up  approach  shots.  If  you  can  overcome  the  numerous  elevations  changes  and  reach  the  greens  in  regulation,  par  is  never  guaranteed  thanks  to  the  extreme  pace  of  the  putting  surface.  There  are  some  tough  holes  here  that  will  test  your  skills  with  all  the  clubs  in  your  bag.  The  front  nine  features  a  particularly  tricky  sequence  of  holes:  at  the  par-3  5th,  your  tee  shot  must  carry  230-odd  yards  over  water  to  reach  the  green,  and  on  the  par-5  6th,  it\'s  all  about  accuracy  with  water  all  the  way  down  one  side  of  the  narrow  fairway  and  out-of-bounds  on  the  other.  If  all  that  wasn\'t  enough,  at  the  par-4  7th  you  can  either  try  to  carry  two  lakes  from  the  tee  or  play  it  safe  from  the  tee  but  leave  yourself  a  long  uphill  approach.  The  original  clubhouse,  built  in  1956,  has  been  fully  restored  and  contains  spacious  locker  rooms,  a  well-stocked  pro  shop  and  a  restaurant  serving  local  and  international  fare  with  views  from  the  clubhouse  patio  of  the  terraced  rice  fields  and  the  pine  forests  that  cover  the  mountains.    Given  the  challenge  that  you  now  know  lies  ahead,  it\'s  probably  worth  taking  advantage  of  the  on-site  practice  facilities  that  include  a  grass  driving  range,  putting  green  and  practice  bunkers;  be  warned  that  even  these  bunkers  won\'t  fully  prepare  you  for  the  unique  challenges  posed  by  the  deep  pot  bunkers  on  the  15th  fairway,  which  you  are  well  advised  to  steer  well  clear  of.  All  of  this  adds  up  to  an  impressive  package,  and  it  is  no  surprise  to  learn  that  Dalat  Palace  Golf  Club  has  repeatedly  been  voted  the  top  course  in  Vietnam  by  Golf  Digest,  and  in  the  top  ten  in  Asia  by  Asian  Golf  Monthly.  Highly  recommended.
