Hanoi Golf Experience

Hanoi, located in northern Vietnam, is the capital city and home to most government complexes and embassies. Not the financial hub of its fellow city in the south, Saigon, Hanoi is known for its rich culture, maintaining traditions, and rich heritage. Hanoi is very unique to any other South East Asian city. There are hardly any skyscrapers, most buildings are old and have been maintained over time, which means there are lots of great places to see, have a bowl of Pho soup, relax at and have a coffee at.

The main parts of Hanoi are The Old Quarter and The French Quarter, both of which are side by side which makes it an excellent city for tourists. The area can be traversed on foot, and with so many small roads and different avenues, one could wander through Hanoi for hours and never get bored.  In the evening, the area around Hoan Kiem Lake in The Old Quarter comes alive, with some excellent spots to have a beer, great dining options, and some festivals and markets that pop up.

The golf in and around Hanoi is spectacular, with the courses set in the forested hills on the outskirts of town. This provides lots of undulation, excellent vistas across the valleys, and challenging golf.

After spending some time in Hanoi, head 3 hours east to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ha Long Bay. This is a must-see when visiting northern Vietnam. Spend some time on a boat cruising the bay, take in the sites of over 1,000 limestone formations coming out from the emerald coloured water, and relax under the stars with a nice drink. This is coupled perfectly with a round at the stunning FLC Ha Long Bay Golf Club, which has amazing views over the bay while playing your round.

BRG Kings Island Golf Resort

Unusual concept of having to get a speed boat across to the island, but that just adds to the experience. Three courses are on the island of which the Mountain View and the recently opened Kings course are the best two and up there with the best that Hanoi has to offer.

Stone Valley Golf Course

An 18 hole course designed by Brian Curley of Schmidt-Curley Design. The greens offer sizeable slopes and ridges as well as bowls and backstops with fairly flat pinnable areas. Stone Valley is a unique golf course in Hanoi. The view is worth it alone, but with a great round of golf and excellent clubhouse thrown in.

Van Tri Golf Club

First class private members course and one of the closest to the centre of Hanoi. Restricted tee – times at weekends, but always in fantastic condition and a must play course. 

BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort

Jack Nicklaus design and an unusual concept of twin greens. Probably the best clubhouse in Vietnam.

Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club

Top class 36 hole complex with the championship course for the members and the Sky Course for visitors. Quite a long drive from the centre of Hanoi but the spectacular mountain views make it well worth the drive.

Long Bein Golf Course

One of the Public Courses in Vietnam so can get very busy at weekends.  Not overly difficult but in terrific condition

FLC Halong Bay GC

Brian Curley design and how he managed to build a course on this terrain is amazing. Truly the best views you will ever see on a golf course overlooking Halong, and a once in a lifetime experience.
