Playing Golf in Vietnam

Find out about the golf courses and playing golf in Vietnam…

The Vietnamese Golf Association (VGA) was formed in 2007 and joined the International Golf Federation (IGF) in 2009. It now has around 5,000 members who can play at around 25 courses spread throughout the country. Most courses are privately owned and are normally situated adjacent to a resort or residential complex; however, access can be gained through membership or even day tickets in most clubs.

They then need to submit 10 score cards and pay a small annual fee for a VGA licensed handicap. The VGA is licensed to use and authorise handicap certificates according to the US Golf Association (USGA) system, thus also making it recognised internationally.

Some of the courses that have already been internationally rated are:
