Review By Vietnam Golf Tourism

Chi Linh Star Golf and Country Club is a 1-hour drive on the way from Hanoi to Halong Bay. Surrounded by 100 hectares of rolling forest hills, this 36-hole course stretches along 324 hectares on a magnificent valley nestling beside a large lake. Leave behind the stressful rhythm of city life behind and come play golf. This sport is relaxing, empowers the concentration, the memory and the flexibility. Allied to these benefits, there is the beautiful, quiet and harmonious landscape.

Due to being located beside a large lake with natural water flowing from the surrounding areas, water hazards come into play on 11 holes over 36 (6 over water and 5 touching water) providing a challenge for all skill levels. For example, several holes feature tee-shots with water carries and others play to island greens formed by the lakes many capes and bays.

Playing conditions at Chi Linh Star are well kept year round. Tifdwarf grass on the greens ensures smooth putting surfaces and provide golfers with a first rate facility. Grass coverage of the tee areas and fairways uses a species of grass originally developed in the U.S.A and currently sourced from Australia. Bermuda grass is a perfect choice for the tee boxes and fairways as it is an extremely strong grass type able to withstand Hanoi’s changing temperatures. The thick rough, particularly when left to grow long, will present a constant challenge even for the most accomplished of golfers.

The greens are large, fast-running and immaculately conditioned, strategically placed bunkers. elevation changes, together with the large lake and rolling hills create a memorable golf experience that will challenge golfers at every level.

There are several factors that influence the success or failure of a golf course: irrigation, drainage, effective and practical design, not to mention experience and knowledge. In Chi Linh Star, maintenance equipment has been imported from the U.S.A. manufactured by “Toro” a world leader company that offers the very best quality products and professional service and support to golf courses. The club house sits on the top of a hill, offering a panoramic view over the golf course, make it the perfect place to relax after a round of golf.

Whether for a day trip from Hanoi, or merely stopping by on the way to or from Ha Long Bay, Chi Linh Star Golf and Country Club is the proverbial must play for a great round of golf.

Chi Linh Star Golf & Country Club
(well designed and unusual course is scenic, challenging and enjoyable)

The Chi Linh Star Golf & Country Club features 27 holes of challenging international standard golfing. The golf club, one of the newest in Vietnam, opening in late 2003, and is located about half way between Hanoi and the popular Halong Bay. Chi Linh Star Golf & Country Club played host to the first professional golf tournament in the north of Vietnam, the 2004 Carlsberg Masters Vietnam at which time the pure beauty of the layout was recognized by both golf professionals and amateurs alike.

Chi Linh Star Golf course was designed and constructed by Independent Golf Course Services a well known Australian firm who have also completed golf courses in Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and China. The golf course is constructed in a beautiful valley on rolling forested hills, with several creeks, lakes, and natural water hazards.

A large natural lake in the center of the course ensures that water comes into play on many of the holes. For example, several holes feature tee-shots with water carries and others play to island greens formed by the lakes many capes and bays. For those playing well through the round, be forewarned, the final hole is nothing less than a 680 yard (yes that is correct and not a typo) uphill par 5. So make sure you have some reserve power and do not let up until you are safely in the club house sipping a cold one with your mates.

The par 4 380 yard second hole is also one of the best at Chi Linh with a long carry to an elevated well guarded green needed to par this hole. Other memorable holes are the par 5 fifth which features side hill lies all the way down the right side of the fairway and that large lake mentioned earlier down the left side.

Playing conditions at Chi Linh Star are well kept year round. Tiff Eagle grass greens insure smooth and fast putting surfaces similar to those of other prestigious golf clubs in the region (e.g. Thai Country Club in Bangkok). Tee boxes and fairways are a Bermuda variant developed specifically for Hanoi’s changing temperatures. The thick rough, particularly when left to grow long, will present a constant challenge even for the most accomplished of golfers.
