“Madame Nga has a vision to develop a golf culture, resorts, and various residential developments for the people of Vietnam and to help drive golf tourism for the country’s economy. The bar is definitely being set for the golf standard in Vietnam.”
Nicklaus Design Associate, Sean Quinn, has begun drafting routing plans and strategy for the latest course. “There is nothing greater than getting a blank canvas and being able to take a client’s dream and make it a reality,” said Quinn.
“The property is stunning and the natural topography of the existing land is something we look forward to highlighting in the design. We currently have six Nicklaus courses completed in the country– the future is very bright for golf in Vietnam. Speaking on behalf of the Nicklaus Design family, we are beyond excited to start this new project which will feature several holes alongside the beautiful beaches.”
