Two years ago,this land was transformed into an ideal weekend rendezvous for golfers.Among pristine forests and sea vistas the course has become recognized as one of coastal Vietnam’s best.


Designed by American Ronald Fream of the Golf Plan Company to be similar to courses found in Scotland.Sea Links Golf and Country Club is the most challenging links style golf course in the area.It is 60 metres above sea level with some amazing views of the ocean below.Scotland is the country which fathered the noble sport of golf and sea links golf and Country Club combines the best of the tropics and the highlands of Scotland.This golf course was opened for golfers just over three months ago.Its growing reputation and beauty have attracted a number of golfers.”Many of the golfers at Sea Links Golf & Country Club are Korean who are living and working in Vietnam”said Ms Pham Thi Thanh Hoa,F.O Manager.The passion of all sportsmen and women is to experience a challenge,and overcome it.Sea Links Golf&Country Club will satisfy this need in both the passionate and the casual golfer.

Ms Hoa said “Many golfers report that this golf course is the most challenging course they’ve ever okayed because of its sloping location”.The golf course will be more challenging with i8 holes which are scheduled to open in mid-November.”Once completed,golfers will even be able to shoot a round at night because a system of high pressure lights,imported from America is being readied to serve nighttime golfers”.Hoa added

AROUND THE GOLF COURSE

Covering an area of 153ha,this project consists of an i8 hole-golf course,(which meets international standards)high- end villas and several other features and amenities for golfers.The woman who showed me around the course on the day I visited was Ms Hoa.We toured the course in a golf cart like the ones that are popular with golfers around the world.”Because the golf course is so large I frequently got lost when I first started working here a year ago”.She said

Hoa skillfully maneuvered the course and took us to the sand traps and the fairways which are covered with green grass imported from Thailand.A tea house was erected near the holes to offer water and refreshment to golfers.As we moved around I was struck by the land and seascapes before me and in the distance I could make out some  caddies assisting a foursome.”Approximately 200 wokers are working at Sea Links Golf & Country Club to assure as perfect an experience as is possible”.Hoa said.

Hoa took us around the course and we enjoyed breathtaking settings which are heavenly.The most spectacular views are found on holes seven through nine where you can see the panoramic view of Mui Ne.

Finally,Hoa took me to the Club House where golfers can enjoy their favourite foods and beveragers.We enjoyed the picturesque scenery of the ocean while sipping a cup of coffee.Sea Links is truly a destination for golfers to both relax and conquer this challenging course by the sea.
