Tan Son Nhat Golf Course Description
Tan Son Nhat Golf Course is a public golf course located 4 kilometers from the center of Ho Chi Minh City. Built across 156 hectares, the 36-hole Tan Son Nhat Golf Course borders the Tan Son Nhat Airport – the busiest in Vietnam.
Nelson & Haworth Golf Course Architects designed a top course out of the surrounding flattish land. Significant earth mounding, many water hazards, large bunkers, and undulating greens have been built on every hole. Paspalum turf used on the tees, fairway, rough, and greens ensure top year-round playing conditions. The Saigon golf course is a modern city layout.
Course A plays away from the clubhouse and in an area designated for apartments, villas and an on-site hotel. Course B, C and D all play around the existing clubhouse. Each nine is equally challenging and well-maintained. The par-5’s play long and mostly into the wind. The par-3’s offer good chances for par provided the greenside bunkers are avoided.
The Tan Son Nhat clubhouse is one of the largest in Asia and can accommodate not only golfers, but large banquets weddings, and other official functions for up to 5000 guests at a time. Several on site restaurants serve tasty Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and western dishes at very reasonable prices.
Other faculties of Tan Son Nhat Golf Course including pro shop, driving range, chipping and putting areas, locker rooms, and changing areas are all first rate. Tan Son Nhat Golf Club is managed under the supervision of the Vietnam Ministry of Defense. Golf carts are mandatory and relegated to cart paths only, although prices are reasonable and golfers can still choose to walk the fairways while caddies drive the carts.
