Golf is on the rise in Vietnam. There are dozens of courses, sometimes beautifully situated on a lake or in the hills. Known golf courses are King Island Valley Golf at Hanoi, Vinh Pearl Golf Course on the island of Hon Tre at Nha Trang and the Dalat Palace Golf Club. In general, all with much cheaper green fees than in the West.
The game of golf is a hobby of the richer Vietnamese, tourists and foreign business people. Many golf courses date from the French colonial era and have been renewed in recent years. It’s especially beautiful on the historic course in Dalat.
