Designed by Luke Donald in association with IMG, and also managed for IMG by Aussie PGA member Tim Hadden as of Jan 2017, Ba Na Hills is a world class facility and is Luke Donald’s first golf course design project. Owned by the Sun Group, the course is located at the foothills of the famed Ba Na Hills on Vietnam’s central coast, located 25 minutes from downtown Da Nang. The course was awarded “World’s Best New Golf Course” at the World Golf Awards November 2016.
Located at the foot of a towering mountain range near Danang, Vietnam’s fourth largest city and gateway to three other designer courses built within the past seven years, Ba Na Hills is different as it plays away from the coastline, at elevation, in a cooler setting typically void of wind. Ba Na Hills is also the only floodlit 18 holes in Da Nang (see photo)
The par 72, 18-hole Championship golf course provides a balance of challenge, enjoyment and excitement to golfers of all levels and abilities with 5 sets of tees to ensure golfers of all standards are assured a pleasurable round of golf. Ranging from 7,857 yards from the Professional “Luke Donald” tees to 6,022 yards from the white, friendlier tees, a good variety and mixture of playing lengths makes every hole feel unique.
