Vietnam named Asia Pacific’s Best Golf Destination in 2017

Vietnam has been selected as the best golf destination in the Asia Pacific region in the 2017 Asia Golf Awards online poll conducted by the Asia Golf Magazine.


Vietnam created a good impression on regional and international golfers, thus received the largest number of votes to become the most favourable golf destination in the region, said Mike Sebastian, CEO of the Asia Pacific Golf Group (APGG) – the governing body of the Asia Golf Magazine.


The result was spurred by Vietnam’s meticulous investment in golf tourism. The country is currently home to 40 operating golf courses while other courses currently are under construction will be put into use in 2018. The courses are of top-notch quality as they have been developed by the world’s leading golf course designers. Notably, Nicklaus Design, a renowned golf course design firm with more than 400 golf courses in 43 countries and 39 in the U.S., has become the strategic and exclusive partner of BRG Group, Vietnam’s most dynamic operator of world-class golf courses.


According to te Asia Golf Magazine, Vietnam will be a magnet for golf tourism as along with 30,000-35,000 domestic golfers, the country has been a hot spot for those from Japan, the Republic of Korea, the U.S., France and the U.K. The country’s golf tourism will develop further especially when the country is honoured as the best golf destination in the region. Vietnam will receive the award at a ceremony held in Da Nang city on 11 November. In the three-month poll ending on 30 June, Vietnam received 104,000 votes of golfers worldwide.
