The West course of Vietnam Golf & Country Club first opened in December 1994, and was designed by Taiwanese architect Chen King Shih. The Par 72 Championship Course hosted the Vietnam Open (Asian PGA Tour Event) in both 1995 and 1997. The course winds its way through the trees offering challenging tee shots to the tree lined fairways before playing to the softly contoured Bermuda TifEagle greens which provide beautiful putting surfaces all year round.
Six–time major champion Lee Trevino was invited to design the second (East) 18 hole course at Vietnam Golf & Country Club, which was opened in late 1997. With more generous fairways than the tighter West course, but equally challenging, guarded by cleverly positioned bunkers, numerous lakes, tricky elevated & undulating Bermuda greens. The Asian Tour revisited Vietnam in 2008 and it was the East course that hosted the Vietnam Hana Bank Masters on this occasion. Both courses are standard configuration par 72 layouts. Whichever course you decide to play, you will leave with fond memories of the golf course and whole experience...
