Golf tourism on the agenda in Da Nang

Viet Nam has 32 golf courses nationwide, and 60 others are planned, but golf tourism has yet to take off due to poor connections among travel agencies and golf tour operators.

Da Nang earned US$68 million in 2016 from golf tourism, and the city expects to increase the figure to $186 million in the next five years when three more golf courses open.

The sixth AGTC, being hosted in Da Nang for the first time, has drawn 650 participants, of which 240 were golf tourism operators from 36 countries and territories, for the week long event.

A meeting for 170 buyers, sellers, managers of real estate, hotels and media will be held at Furama resort today, while a golf tournament and a field trip will take place at Ba Na Hills Golf Club in Da Nang, Montgomerie Links in Quang Nam and Laguna Golf Lang Co in Thua Thien-Hue on May 10-12.

According to the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, 169 golf tourism companies operating in Asia plan to expand into Viet Nam.

The International Association of Golf Tour Operators in co-operation with Da Nang’s Tourism department has built a strategy to develop golf tourism for Da Nang in 2017-22.

Da Nang and neighbouring provinces of Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue are popular sites in central Viet Nam, with beautiful golf courses designed by Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Collin Montgomerie and Luke Donald.

Last year, the Ba Na Hills Golf Club in Da Nang was named Best New Golf Course in Asia and the Pacific at the Asian Golf Awards of the Asian Golf Association, and was first runner up as Best Golf Course in Viet Nam.
