HA NOI — Ba Na Hills Golf Club was voted Asia’s Best Golf Course 2017 at the ceremony of the World Golf Awards held in Spain last weekend.

The Da Nang course beat out 11 nominees, including Angkor Golf Resort of Cambodia, Black Mountain Championship Golf Course of Thailand and The 27 Club of China to take the title.

Ba Na Hills was also selected as Viet Nam’s Best Golf Course of the year, besting Da Lat Golf Palace and Laguna Golf Lang Co and six other nominees.

It is the second year in a row that the club has been honoured at this event, which has become one of the most prestigious awards in the world of golf since it was held for the first time in 2014.

Last year, the Ba Na Hills course was recognised as the World’s Best New Golf Course.

Designed by former world No 1 Luke Donald and managed by IMG, the par-72, 18-hole course is located at the foothills of the famed Ba Na Hills on Viet Nam’s central coast, 25 minutes from downtown Da Nang.

Its five sets of tees and balance of challenging and enjoyable terrain ensure players of all levels are assured a pleasurable round of golf.

Another Vietnamese winner at the Spanish ceremony was The Grand Ho Tram Strip, named the World’s Best Golf Hotel. Viet Nam was named Asia’s Best Golf Destination. — VNS
