Here is the latest from Rick, one of the key guys on the ground involved in Saigon golf development.
I just spent the weekend in Danang. Montgomerie Links Vietnam and Danang Golf Club are both in the best condition I have seen them in. The greens at Danang Golf Club were running at about 10 with not one single deviation or bump off line. I just wish I could read the greens properly.
The new superintendent at Montgomerie Links Vietnam has it striped up and looking really good, greens were very true. I also had a knock round the Faldo track at Laguna Lang Co Golf Club. It still has about 4 holes growing in and some landscape to fill out but it is a really good test for all standards with breath taking views of the hills as a back drop. The clubhouse is well put together and they are getting their act together with service levels. A full day package of golf, food and beverages, spa and beach would be a great day out for anyone visiting Hue for golf. As you know it is realistically an 80 min trip from Danang or Hoi An. A nice tranquil day of beach and pampering with golf would be perfect. The Lang Co beach is really nice and the area is almost silent, no traffic noises etc. I could envisage Laguna Lang Co Golf Club getting 2013 best new course in Asia. The superintendent is intending to keep it with running fairways and has all the necessary equipment to implement what he says.
I just wanted to give some feedback to you. Keep up all the good work and news of golf in Asia.
