In keeping with its design philosophy you won’t find much water and instead in line with traditional links courses you will find fast and firm fairways that bleed gently into the natural local vegetation, bumps and hollows, huge bunkers and uneven waste areas.\n
The prevailing wind, also a traditional hazard on Scottish links courses, also plays a part here but fortunately not too many of the holes play into the prevailing wind.\n
The opening hole should help you to get off to a good start and the tee shot is set up for a gentle fade around the natural looking bunker on the right of the fairway. A simple approach if you find the fairway but be careful to find the correct level on the tiered green. The next is the longest par-3 at Danang Golf Club but the large green offers an inviting target and even if you miss left there is a generous bail-out area. Avoid the right side as it’s very well guarded by six bunkers. The 3rd offer a scoring opportunity providing you can avoid the huge bunkers which guards the front left side of the green – once on the putting surface the ball tends to feed towards the middle. This is followed by back-to-back par 5s and the 4th is a tough one and is mostly uphill and you cannot see the green until you are within 150 yards. The 5th offer more of a birdie chance than the previous par 5 and big hitters can get up in two but need to avoid the bunkers which protect the slightly elevated green. The 6th is a gentle dogleg left par 4 which can either offer a birdie opportunity or wreck your card depending on which way the wind is blowing and best avoid the huge waste bunker down the left. Plenty of bail-out room to the right of the green. The finishing hole on this half looks pretty innocuous from the tee but get your approach wrong and the ball will roll back down the hill and could end up 60 yards from any pin position.\n
The back 9 at Danang Golf Club is as good as you\'ll find anywhere and it starts with the longest par 5 on the course with the majestic Marble Mountains in the background. The hole ends at a green bisected by a dangerous ridge. The 10th which plays downhill to a wide green is one of golf\'s best par 3s but watch out for the bunkers which guard the front and back of the green. The 13th is rated the most difficult and offers no respite and requires a perfect drive and approach to a slightly elevated green with a false front. The 14th is a driveable par-4 from elevated tees but probably not worth the risk except for the single handicapper. The 16th is Danang Golf Club’s signature hole with the sea and the Cham Islands in the background – the wind makes club selection difficult. A tough finishing hole but if you can avoid the menacing bunker on the left side of the fairway you should be able to reach the green.\n
A truly stunning golfing experience with few equals in South East Asia with a purpose built clubhouse with everything you need to compete a perfect day on the links.\n

The designers have used the wonderful natural terrain to its full advantage and have produced a course which is suited to golfers of all playing levels. The variable lengths and uneven lies resulting from the undulating terrain will ensure that you have to call upon all of your shot-making skills to conquer this course.\n
My pick of the holes on the outward nine includes the brute of a par-3, 2nd which is 260 yards from the back tees – only relief is that it’s downhill and the green is generously large. The 5th is the second of back-to-back par-5’s and measures 708 yards!! It starts with a medium to long carry off the tee (depending on which tee you play) and then the hole zigzags right and then left as you get close to the green which is protected by bunkers on both sides. The 7th is a classic risk and rewards par-4 and long hitters need to be aware of water which waits around 290 yards off the tee – better to lay up between the fairway bunkers leaving a reasonable shot to the green . If you blast it over the bunker off the tee you can be rewarded with a much shorter approach but plenty of danger waits if you don’t catch it just right. The 8th is a wonderful par-3 and you have to take on the water and hazard if you want to attack the pin – less accomplished golfers will probably want to bail out right.\n
The shortest par-4 on the course to start the back nine so you can open your shoulders but beware the raised bunkers in the centre of the fairway and then it’s a tough approach to an elevated green. The par-5, 11th is probably the most difficult on the course with a very narrow fairway lined by water on one side and jungle on the other. Great view over the entire area from the 12th tee box. This long par- 3 is made shorter as there is a 50 metre drop from tee to green so you probably need to choose at least 2 clubs less than you would normally. The 16th is another par-3 and you play from another elevated tee to an island green which is quite generous in size. The 17th is great fun and is a sharp dogleg which demands and accurate tee shot between the fairway bunkers and an accurate approach to the green which is surrounded by water in front and to the left.\n

Bana Hills Golf Club in Danang, Vietnam is the latest golf course to open in Danang. This is the first golf course designed by Luke Donald, the former number one golfer, and when it fully matures it will rank with the best golf courses in Vietnam and will be the forth golf course to open in Danang and the first mountain course in this region.',
The course is located about midway between Danang and Hue and takes about 1.5 hours from each.
Most modern golf course designers try to use the natural terrain as much as possible and here Sir Nick was spoilt for choice with natural sand dunes and rice paddy fields, mature trees and scrubland and exposed rocky outcrops in addition to the dramatic coastline.
In keeping with his style of play he has built a very strategic golf course which offers various route options and will require players to pick their way between the natural obstacles
of the area.
Pick of the holes is the par-3 5th with large mounds protecting the green and you end your round with a challenging par-5.
Great clubhouse facilities
Nick Faldo’s 2nd course in Vietnam and his best yet built on a stunning and diverse piece of land with the hills on one side and the white sands of the South China Sea on the other.',
You can be fooled as you tee off on the opening par-5 as the fairway is more receptive than it looks. You need to avoid the fairway bunker with your 2nd shot before attempting your approach into the very well-protected green. A beautiful par-3 to follow which is partially sheltered by the native casuarina trees but can still get affected by the prevailing winds. The 4th is a long par-4 with several well-placed fairways bunkers waiting to swallow your tee shot and then a relatively simple approach into a bowl-shaped green. The 4th is a driveable par-4 and the shortest on the course but you need to avoid the water on the right. On the par-3, 5th you have to play across water all the way to the green and club selection is tricky as the winds can vary. Just beside the 6th tee box is a pillbox from the Vietnam War and we hope it won’t put you off as you tee off downhill trying to keep to the right of the fairway which gives you the best position to play into a green with water along the left. Slightly unnerving blind approach on the par-4, 7th but no hazards await you. The sloping 8th fairway has a tendency to push the ball to the right so you need to flirt with the fairway bunker to be best positioned for your approach. Wonderful finish to the front 9 as you tee off between the casuarinas towards the large green protected by water on the right.\n
As you start home the 10th has a wide-open fairway allowing you to take on the dogleg over the trees but the deep green means you have to watch for the pin position. The uphill par-3. 11th is very well protected by a wall of bunkers so take an extra club here. No less than 17 bunkers on the par-5, 12th so careful shot making is required to avoid them – sloping green means you should try to keep below the pin as its very quick downhill. You can open your shoulders on the downhill par-4, 12th but the approach is tricky. The 14th is a long par-3 with water along the right and bunkers giving the green further protection. The 15th is a driveable par-4 but plenty of risk if you don’t catch it out of the middle. The 16th is a visually stunning hole and providing you can avoid the right side fairway bunker it’s a scoring opportunity. You get close to the dunes on the 17th but be sure to avoid the fairway bunkers and set yourself up for a simple approach. The longest hole on the courses to finish as you work your way uphill to the undulating green past numerous fairway bunkers – this is a birdie opportunity for the big hitters.\n
There is a large, modern clubhouse and excellent practice facilities.
Once voted by Forbes magazine as one of the ten most elite courses in Asia this links-style golf course combines many natural features with wind-blown sand dunes and the natural vegetation to create another Monty classic. A feature of the course are the casuarina trees which line most of the fairways and the natural waste areas which cut into many of the fairways. Water comes into play on quite a few of the holes and some of the greens are literally surrounded by bunkers.',
