Ba Na Hills Golf Course, located in Da Nang, won two awards at the recent World Golf Awards held in Spain and was named “The Best Golf Course in Asia – 2017” and “The Best Golf Course in Vietnam.” The awards were determined by the votes of 1.1 million people from 40 different countries and were collected by the World Golf Awards between April and October of this year.
Designed by Luke Donald and managed by IMG, Ba Na Hills is a world-class facility that is located at the foothills of the famed Ba Na Hills on Vietnam’s central coast, approximately 25 minutes from downtown Da Nang.
The property is set amongst some of the most impressive mountain ranges in the region. The par 72, 18-hole Championship golf course provides a balance of challenge, enjoyment and excitement to golfers of all levels and abilities with 5 sets of tees to ensure golfers of all standards are assured a pleasurable round of golf. Ranging from 7,857 yards from the Professional “Luke Donald” tees to 6,022 yards from the white, friendlier tees, a good variety and mixture of playing lengths makes every hole feel unique.
In 2016, Vietnam Golf Magazine named the course, designed by former world champion golfer Luke Donald as the “The Best New Course in Vietnam – 2016 ~ 2017”. The course was also named the “Best New Course In Asia-Pacific” at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit that was held in Thailand.
Tim Haddon, the General Manager of Ba Na Hills Golf Club, said at the awards in Spain, that “The awards are a great recognition for the golf club as well as a monumental achievement considering the tough competition for such a world-class award.”
