The Ba Na Hills Golf Club won “Best New Course 2016-2017” at the annual Vietnam Golf Magazine Awards in Hanoi on October 31.

Based on the results of an online survey and input from a panel of golf course design experts, the award is the third of its kind to come the club’s way in less than a year. “While it’s possible those accolades may have paved the way for this honor, you just never know,” said Mr. Tim Haddon, Ba Na Hills Golf Club’s General Manager. “Our No. 1 goal is to make the experience here better every single day. If you can do that, the awards should come.”

Last November, Ba Na Hills was named “World’s Best New Course” at the World Golf Awards in Portugal and “Best New Course in Asia Pacific” at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit in Thailand.

Since opening in March 2016 on the outskirts of Da Nang, Ba Na Hills has made a name for itself by offering a golf product unlike any other in Vietnam.

Among the course’s standout features are its flexibility - it can play long, short, or anywhere in between, thanks to five sets of tee boxes - its comprehensive lighting system, and its views.

The most breathtaking vantage point comes at the par 3 12th, which plays downhill to a bunker-guarded green backdropped by a dense forest stretching as far as the eye can see.

Ba Na Hills Golf Club is managed by IMG and owned by the Sun Group, one of the leading investors in Vietnam and with The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, Novotel Danang Premier Han River Hotel, and Ba Na Hills Mountain Resort counting among its other properties.
