Located some 30 minutes from the Vietnamese city of Dalat you will find The Dalat 1200, a residential resort that screams luxury. Dalat, founded by French colonies in 1898 is in the Lam Dong province and offers a new take on Hill Station living. The 3rd course in the Dalat area, it has shot to prominence quickly after opening, staging the first ladies professional event held in Vietnam.
Owned by Singapore based Centurion the residential resort, due to be compelte4d in 2018 is expected to be managed by an internationally acclaimed management company. With its close proximity to the international airport, it is perfectly positioned for those wishing to enjoy around soon after arrival, or indeed for a quick round before boarding.
A private golf course, The Dalat 1200 is prestigious and the invitation only policy, through selected tour operators will ensure that the course maintains its luxury and select feel. You are invited to experience the luxurious nature of the development, which has taken huge steps to ensure the ecological safety and conservation whilst creating some wonderful apartments and villas that are available for sale. Viewings can be arranged in the clubhouse offices.
The Academy, although temporary at the moment, is more than adequate for golfers needs with a superb driving range, great chipping and putting practice areas which gives visitors the opportunity to experience the Bent Grass greens before starting play, which if you have never played on them before is a totally new experience. Be warned the greens are lightning fast and are considered the fastest in Vietnam, which is scary when you consider Vietnamese greens are already considered quick.
The putting surfaces are immaculate and just as tricky and you will need to pay attention to the caddies if you are looking to hole as many putts as possible, as the greens are somewhat deceptive.
The 7,503-yard par 73 course uses 419 Bermuda grass fairways and rough to ensure high quality conditions throughout the year. Couple this with beautifully manicured bent grass greens and fringes and you have a truly spectacular course that rises and falls seamlessly across the natural terrain.
Strategically placed water hazards, bunkers and natural springs meander through the entire estate, around 900 hectares, add to the pine clad mountains that provide a natural amphitheatre and tranquillity to the course. Dalat is surely one of Vietnams best kept secrets, with stunning scenery and average temperatures of around 23º, and the addition of The Dalat 1200 makes this a golfer’s dream holiday location.
Accuracy is an integral part of the game here if you are to score well. One of the most pleasing aspects of the design is the creation of so many great holes, many of which could be considered as the signature hole for the course, and the naturalness of the entire development.
The Dalat 1200 offers an all-inclusive price of 115$ (weekdays) for the first round, with second rounds (same day) at 75$ which include individual buggy and personal caddy, use of the extensive practice facilities and all taxes.
