Around 170km south of Hanoi you will find the FLC Samson Golf Links, part of the 450-hectare Samson Beach and Golf Resort, one of the most expansive resorts in the region.
The beach side location is typical of the links style golf courses that typify the British Isles.
A backdrop of the South China Sea, the River Ma and the sand dunes of the Sam Son Beach provide golfers with some truly amazing views as they plot their way around the 7200-yard, par 72 18-hole course.
Another project headed by Nicklaus design, the course screams quality from arrival at the stunning, opulent clubhouse, which provides more than any golfer could ever require from a clubhouse.
It is a testament to the international acclaim and love of the British links that this course screams traditional links.
Set amongst the dunes, the hard, fast fairways lined with native grasses create the perfect frame and when coupled with the backdrop of the South China Sea the golfer is transported to another world, for at least a while.
Water hazards wrapped with sleeper clad walls, create an aesthetically pleasing break to the traditional links feel.
Typically, large undulating greens sit at the end of beautiful, rolling fairways that are a delight to play from and a credit to the maintenance teams that work hard to maintain the incredible standards across the resort.
At 7242-yards this championship course will provide a stern challenge to any golfer.
Add to this the unpredictable coastal winds and you have a sublime golf course that will play differently each and every time you visit.
The clubhouse is modern, state-of-the art and provides golfers with all the amenities they need from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave.
Large, spacious locker rooms enjoy air conditioning and have a 5* hotel feel to them, whilst the pro-shop is well-stocked and supplies a range of golf equipment.
An ever-growing trend in Vietnamese golf is the on-course rest spots, which provide respite from the weather and the drain of playing golf on tough courses.
The extensive practice facilities lend themselves to be used by the visiting and local golfer. A large driving range, chipping, bunker and putting areas really enhance the appeal of the Samson Links Resort and it is an absolute must visit resort in the area.
At just over two hours from Hanoi, Samson Golf Links is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after courses in the area and it is no surprise that it has quickly gained recognition as one of the best 18 hole tracks in the area.
