The 18th Asian Golf Awards were organized for the first time in Da Nang on the night of November 16, where representatives from Vietnam’s golf industry wore a path to the winner’s circle.

In addition to Vietnam itself claiming “Asia Pacific’s Best Golf Destination”, BRG Kings Island Golf Resort overcame Ba Na Hills Golf Club and Montgomerie Links to be named “Best Golf Course in Vietnam”.

“What a night, and what a month,” said Mr. Tim Haddon, General Manager of Ba Na Hills. “For us, these accolades are testament to the hard work and dedication that our team puts into making our guests happy and excited to come back again and again.”

The Asian Golf Awards, which are billed as the regional golf industry’s equivalent of the Oscars, was the final act of the 11th Asia Pacific Golf Summit (APGS), a three-day conference that attracted leaders from the golf business all around the world.

Representatives from high-profile brands such as Nicklaus Companies, PXG, and Topgolf gave keynote speeches at the forum, which took place at the new Sheraton Danang Resort.

Most of the Asian Golf Awards winners were determined by an online survey conducted over a three-month period, beginning in May. Others were selected based on contributions or achievements deemed worthy of acknowledgment by the program’s owner and producer, the Asia Pacific Golf Group.

This year, 100,024 votes were cast covering 51 categories; all-time records for the Asian Golf Awards - the only continent-wide poll of the golf industry in Asia.
