The Dunes course is situated on the fledgling central coast of Vietnam amid 150 hectares of dunescape similar to what the worlds first golf courses were carved from. Its chief feature is a 7,160-yard, 18-hole, links-style layout that was designed in the true spirit of the game blown-out bunkers, firm and fast fairways that bleed gently into wild seaside vegetation, rugged waste areas, swales and hollows by Australian golf legend and former world No. 1 Greg Norman. It lies in close proximity to two of Vietnams most historic destinations UNESCO World Heritage sites Hoi An and Hue and offers breathtaking views of the Marble Mountains, East Sea and Cham Islands. It is recognized as one of the 15 best new courses in the world by USA GOLF magazine when it first opened in 2010. Da Nang Golf Resort has been awarded a number of awards, amongst them the 2011, 2012, 2013 best golf course in Asia by the readers of Asian Golf Monthly as well as the 2012 Best Golf Course in Vietnam by USA Golf Digest and the 2014 IAGTO Diamond Award.
