The Dalat at 1200 Country Club Description
The Dalat at 1200 Country Club & Private Estate is the closest course to Dalat Airport. The Dalat at 1200 Country Club is a combined effort of Peter Rousseau (P&Z design) and Kyi Hla Han (Asian Tour). The site is sprawled across 25,000 acres of hilly pine tree forests surrounded by a 5,000 acre natural spring fed lake. This gives the site an alpine feel more resembling Switzerland than Vietnam. The Dalat at 1200 is the first officially sanctioned Asian Tour destination.
Located between 1,200 and 1,600 meters above sea level the climate is ideal for Bent grass greens and Bermuda fairways. Daytime highs reach only 25 degrees centigrade witch not only promotes good grass, but also makes for comfortable year-round playing conditions.
The natural landscape and course layout of The Dalat at 1200 Country Club makes use of native Pine trees, small streams, lakes, and waterfalls that meander through the holes. Additional local flowers and bushes have been planted to frame each hole and provide unique challenges. Each old provides the scenic views.
The holes have long green to tee distances and significant elevation changes between them, so golf carts are mandatory even for golf professionals.
Currently, a small but functional clubhouse sits between the two nine hole courses and adequately serves golfers’ needs. Besides the golf course, The Dalat at 1200 includes a large resort and private housing complex with villas and condominiums planned for the future.
