Ho Chi Minh golf courses

Originally known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in the whole of Vietnam and was an important port until the 17th century. Starting out as a sleepy fishing village, Ho Chi Minh has experienced many disturbances over the centuries, including being conquered by Spain and France before becoming the capital city of South Vietnam. Now the economic hub of the country, Ho Chi Minh has many thriving industries, including tourism but is still known to many locals by the evocative name of Saigon. If you are wondering when is the best time to travel then we suggest you read Best time to visit Vietnam for golf holiday.

 

Where to stay in Ho Chi Minh

Although the city is divided into many districts, it’s best to stick to District 1 when booking a hotel. This will ensure you are close to all amenities and won’t waste too much time travelling around a crowded city.

Ho Chi Minh golf clubs

Good tee times in Ho Chi Minh on the top courses can be difficult to get so where possible book in advance of the game being played. Check out our blog post on the Best Golf Courses in Ho Chi MInh.

Golf in Ho Chi Minh doesn’t come much better than at Song Be Golf Club, which originally opened to the public in 1994 and offers championship level greens and fairways. Regarded as one of the top courses in the country, this par 72, 27 hole course will challenge even the most experienced golfers.

Set in former rice paddies, Long Thanh Golf Club is a hidden gem, with locals preferring this over some of the more famous courses nearby such as Vietnam Country Club, which is also a Ho Chi Minh golf spa resort. With 36 holes and spectacular scenery, it’s situated around 40 minutes from the centre of the city.

If you don’t mind travelling a bit further then Dong Nai Golf Resort offers a wonderful escape from the city and Twin Doves Golf Club and the recently opened Jeongsan Country Club are growing in popularity.

Cheap green fees in Ho Chi Minh can be deceiving as they may not include the caddy and service tips so check this when booking.

If you’re looking for golf lessons in Ho Chi Minh, all of the clubs have top professionals who can help you improve your game, but check to see whether they speak English proficiently first.

Ho Chi Minh activities and things to do

If you can manage to take a break from the golf Ho Chi Minh is such a vibrant and successful city, there’s an almost limitless amount of things to see and do.

For a spot of military history, the Cu Chi tunnels to the north west of the city were used by the Viet Cong as a base and provided a vast underground network, allowing the movement of goods, medication and food as well as also acting as living quarters for some.

The Suoi Tien Amusement Park is a slightly surreal but absorbing theme park which offers a variety of themed areas, including a manmade beach and a waterfall. The landscaping is expertly thought out and visitors can also learn about Vietnamese legends of the past which are depicted in the illustrations and attractions in the park.

If you’ve ever have a craving to see giant, colourful dragons nestled next to giant Buddha statues in a tranquil garden setting, the Suoi Tien Amusement Park could be just what you’ve been looking for…

Ho Chi Minh Golf - weather and when to travel

Similar to many other destinations in Asia, Vietnam has two distinct seasons: the dry season and the wet season.

Although Ho Chi Minh will receive far more rain in the wet season, in reality the weather is scorching hot all year round. This means that in Ho Chi Minh golf can be played all year round, with some real bargains available during the low season.

Ho Chi Minh nightlife and entertainment

The nightlife in the city is varied and diverse and you will find a huge range of clubs to suit all tastes, particularly in District 1.

Expect to pay a lot for alcohol, particularly imported drinks but some of the settings are quite simply blissful for an evening’s relaxation.

Conclusion

If you want to spend time out on the greens or stock up in the golf shop, Ho Chi Minh offers top level facilities all around the city, with tourists and locals both mingling in the same clubs.

Dong Nai Golf Resort in Ho Chi Minh is set around a huge lake making this one of the most scenic golf courses in Vietnam.  Dong Nai is a little further out of the city than some of the other golf clubs but the extra travelling time is well worth the effort.  In 2003 this course was voted the best in Vietnam and although it would struggle to regain that accolade up against the more recent competition it remains an exceptional layout.

Ho Chi Minh City situated in southern Vietnam is a fantastic base for a golf holiday in the country.  You have some excellent golf courses close by, one of which is Harmonie Golf Park.  It takes just over an hour to reach the golf course from the city centre but this is time well spent and you will see why shortly.

Harmonie Golf Park opened for play in 2018, making it one of the newest golf courses in the whole of Vietnam.  Located in the northern suburbs of Ho Chi Minh City, it is one of two golf courses which are next to each other.  The second golf course being Twin Doves Golf Club, so you could easily stay in the area and combine the two if you wish.

Taekwang Jeongsan Country Club in Ho Chi Minh is the latest resort-style golf course to open in Saigon on a huge island in the Saigon River which can be reached by in 30 minute from the pier in District 1 and it takes you direct to the clubhouse. It’s quite a long course but has several tees to choose from so most golfers will be able to find one to suit their ability.  The terrain is quite flat but the designer has positioned plenty of bunkers to protect the course.

Long Thanh Golf Club is a popular 36-hole layout about 30 kms north of Ho Chi Minh.  The two courses are quite different and the Hill Course is more tree-lined and The Lakes Course, as its name suggests, has plenty of water hazards to negotiate.   Both course is quite forgiving with wide fairways and close-cut rough which is pretty easy to escape from.  The greens also present a large target but if you are not accurate you may have to face a very long putt.  In order to protect the course the designer has placed plenty of high-lipped bunkers in strategic locations and many of the fairways are bordered by water ready to catch the errant drive.

7503 yards | Links-style

The links-style Sea Links Golf & Country Club in Phan Thiet has a reputation of being one of the most difficult golf courses in Vietnam and you will need to play well to protect your handicap.  The golf course architect has carved a courses out of the rolling sand dunes which are common to this part of the coast of Vietnam.  It takes around to reach this course so it’s a full days outing from Ho Chi Minh so maybe better to stay overnight and play the courses twice.

Song Be Golf Resort in Ho Chi Minh offers 27 holes with each of the three courses offering a different and unique challenge with numerous water hazards, mature tropical trees, plants and large uneven greens.  Higher handicappers should probably avoid the more difficult Desert Course.

Located next to the busiest airport in Vietnam the Tan Son Nhat golf complex is comprised of 4 9-hole loops to create to 18-hole golf courses.

Set within a 36-acre site, the course designers have made the most of the flat landscape to create exciting and challenging golf courses that will test the very best players.

The courses are designated Course A, Course B, Course C and Course D.

The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip is another masterpiece from Greg Norman which has really captured the essence of a true links course and is designed around the huge sands dunes with dramatic ocean views.  A unique golfing experience in an unlikely location.  We think is is probably one of the Best Golf Courses in Asia.

Twin Doves Golf Club in Ho Chi Minh is a  27-hole layout about one hour from downtown Saigon which has been designed to blend with the natural terrain.  The course at Twin Doves Golf Club is still maturing so not too many trees and the course relies on the many water hazards and bunkers for protection.

An enjoyable links style experience somewhat off the beaten track.

Whilst it's a fairly lengthy drive from the city to Vung Tau Paradise Golf Resort, those willing to take the trip to the seaside will be rewarded with a 27 holes of links style championship golf on one of Vietnam's least played courses.

The development of new golf courses continues in Vietnam and we have an exciting new addition in Long An Province called West Lakes Golf and Villas.

The golf course is situated to the west of Ho Chi Minh city and takes a little over an hour to reach.  However, there is plenty of accommodation available closer to the golf course should you wish to stay outside the city.

West Lakes Golf and Villas opened for play in 2018 and was designed by Thomson Perrett, a company which was founded by the legendary golfer Peter Thompson.  They have more than 250 other successful golf projects around the world and this is one of their latest designs.
