Vietnam Golf & Country is widely recognised as one of the best clubs in the South and is conveniently located about 20 kilometres from downtown Saigon. A 36 hole layout set amidst mature woodlands and lakes.
Wandering through 300 hectares of the original woodland very little earth was moved during construction relying instead on the natural terrain. The original West Course was designed by Lee Trevino and the West Course which opened in 1994 was designed by a Taiwanese architect.
The course is renowned for its narrow tree-lined fairways and beautifully prepared greens and whichever course you play it makes for a great day out.
The East course features more generous fairways than the West Course but the many strategically placed bunkers and water hazards offer more than enough protection. The West Course is very long so we do not recommend the back tees and it requires great accuracy to score well as the trees lie in wait for that errant shot.
This is a private club so the clubhouse and changing rooms are excellent as is the restaurant and very well-stocked pro shop. Members take priority at weekends so we strongly recommend that you play midweek if possible.

This is a reasonable layout and in quite good nick. I played both courses and had a good time which was helped by my excellent caddy who was very entertaining and knowledgeable – especially at reading greens. It’s not my favourite course in the area but definitely worth playing.
