Course Review and Comments

Altogether, we played at three top golf facilities in the Saigon area and this was the crene de la creme among them. I wish we had played here more than once for sure. I noted upon leaving that there seemed to be condos or villas along the roadway and I don't know if they are private or available for renting. For the serious golf devotee who is not all that excited about the hustle and bustle of Saigon and what it has to offer, this would be the place to hunker down contentedly and play often. Other golf facilities are not that far away if the urge strikes to vary your golfing experience. However, this place is the best in my opinion.

Date course was played Thursday 03rd of March 2011
Price paid for golf 0
Price comments As part of a pre-paid golf package, I don't know what the actual green fees were. This website lists them at $60.00 so I assume that's what they were for the day we played.
Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments We played a combination of both courses, the back nine of both the Hills course and the Lakes course. The Hills course was just that... quite hilly with interesting elevation changes and some very intriguing holes particularly 10 and 18. The Lakes course is also aptly named with a number of them coming into play on virtually every hole on the back nine. View the course from the clubhouse... it gives you a good perspective of what you will be encountering. The par threes are particularly noteworthy. All in all, a very nicely designed and challenging course.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments I gave it 5* but it wasn't exactly perfect. Recent very hot dry weather prior to our arrival was causing some turf burn-out issues but most of the course was in excellent condition and I could envision what it normally would be like. It was superbly groomed and the greens ran true. It was a pleasure to play.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments No complaints whatsoever!
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Outstanding clubhouse and locker facility. The landscaping at this course was brilliant with topiary of all types including one very long dragon! Miniature pagodas and temple-like structures scattered about the property added to the Oriental charm.
