Montgomerie Links Golf Club (18 Holes)

The over-arching design philosophy behind all of Colin Montgomerie’s designs is to work closely with natural characteristics of each site. Montgomerie Links Vietnam has many truly outstanding natural features. The sandy soil, wind-blown dunes, and indigenous vegetation combine to create the framework for a very strong links-style golf course that caters to players of all abilities and is a sheer delight to play.

Although the course doesn’t officially have a signature hole, the stunning par-5 12th is truly memorable. Playing slightly uphill to a bunker-riddled fairway, the hole is framed by the clubhouse in the background and has been described as the best par-5 in Vietnam.

Montgomerie Links – A golfing gem on Vietnam’s Central Coast

It’s said that life and style go hand in hand at Montgomerie Links. This often awarded, beautiful golf course on Vietnam’s Central Coast is ideally situated a short distance from quite a few recreational and cultural attractions.


Designed by eight-time European Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie, it was the first of the new courses developed on the central coast and is regularly considered to be one of the best courses in Vietnam and throughout Asia.  In 2012, the Forbes Travel Guide rated Montgomerie Links

as one of Asia’s ten most elite courses, and it recently won a prestigious Asia Pacific Property Award.

On arrival we were greeted by the Director of Golf, Taylor Murphy, members of the club’s management team and their well-trained caddies.  They assisted us in a quick and orderly transition from arrival to the first tee within minutes.


The links-style course is perfectly suited for the rolling sand-dunes found along Vietnam’s unique East Sea shoreline.  Located near historical Danang Beach, minutes from Danang City in one direction and the Marble Mountains in another, Montgomerie Links a stunning 7090 yard, par-72 golf masterpiece.
Though I’ve been to Montgomerie Links on several occasions, this is the first time I’ve been fortunate to play 18-holes.  For those in our group, we found it to be challenging enough to test our best players, while also being playable and enjoyable for those of us who are middle-level and higher handicappers.
The links-style course has quite a few outstanding natural features — sandy soil, wind-blown dunes and indigenous vegetation which were well designed and incorporated into the course’s layout.  The rolling, treeless fairways, thick rough and large greens have created numerous memorable holes.
Among the more memorable is the 18th, a perfect closing hole.  The longest par-5 at Montgomerie Links it creates a good opportunity to finish with a birdie before retiring to the clubhouse.  Though slightly uphill, and with a series of fairway bunkers, it allows long hitters to go for the green in two.


The 12th is another memorable par-5.  Extremely well bunkered, it requires 3 strategically placed shots to negotiate the 17 bunkers on the hole.  A difficult, undulating green, it requires the golfer to pay close attention to ensure they’re leaving themselves an uphill putt.
The 2nd hole is a very beautiful, long Par 3.  This stunning hole is surrounded by a native casuarina forest.  Golfers must be careful in club selection due to the prevailing winds off the East Sea.  Our well-trained, friendly caddies were did well in advising us on the proper clubs to use.
Following the round, we made our way back to Montgomerie’s large contemporary clubhouse for a delightful lunch along with the club’s General Manager, Mr. Huỳnh Văn Nhiệm.  Our conversation covered numerous topics ranging from the condition of the course to other features at the club, including their comprehensive driving range/practice facility, and the residential development called The Estates at the Montgomerie Links.

Montgomerie Links is conveniently located midway between Hoi An and Da Nang. Da Nangis the country’s third-largest city, and has the considerable advantage of being right on the beach and just a 30-minute ride from Hoi An Ancient Town (World Cultural Heritage). Two other UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Imperial City of Hue and My Son Sanctuary, are also easy to reach. It is just 15 minutes drive from Danang International Airport, which is serviced by direct local and international flights.

The 18-hole international standard golf course is designed by European legendary golfer –Colin Montgomerie who was Winning Ryder Cup Captain and Eight-Time European Order Of Merit Winner.

The overarching philosophy in the design of Colin Montgomerie is to utilise the natural features. The course has many truly outstanding natural features: the sandy soil, wind-blown dunes, and indigenous vegetation combine to create the framework for a very strong links-style golf course that caters to players of all abilities and is a sheer delight to play. The par 72, 7190-yard course offers a mild coastal climate and year round playing conditions, perfect for golfers traveling the Central coastline.

As one of the premier courses in the Central region, Montgomerie Links received a 4½ star rating and currently ranks No.8 on TripAdvisor among 33 attractions in Da Nang. The Forbes Travel Guide named Montgomerie Link – Da Nang in the list of Asia’s 10 Most Elite Golf Courses and Vietnam’s Best Championship Course – voted by Vietnam Golf Magazine’s readers in 2010, 2011.

Acclaimed by local and visiting golfers alike, the course is a fun and enjoyable layout for players of all abilities, yet challenging enough to test the best players in the world, while being eminently playable and enjoyable for mid and higher handicappers. Although the course doesn’t officially have a signature hole, the stunning par-5 12th is truly memorable. Playing slightly uphill to a bunker-riddled fairway, the hole is framed by the clubhouse in the background and has been regarded as the best par-5 in Vietnam.

The clubhouse is easily accessible to all villa owners who can take advantage of the best in comfort and amenities available which include two fully equipped Pro Shops of international standard, spacious locker rooms with sauna and Jacuzzi area, the main restaurant and The Links Café offering a broad range of local, Asian and Western dishes and a selection of drinks and a covered Driving Range.

Montgomerie Links Vietnam:
(excellent Colin Montgomerie design)

The Montgomerie Links, located just off historical Danang Beach and minutes from the Danang City, is a stunning 7090 yard, par-72 golf course. The course has been rated as one of Asia’s ten most elite courses by the 2012 Forbes Travel Guide as well as most recently has been voted as “Vietnam’s Best Championship Course 2013” by the Vietnam Golf Magazine.

Nearby Hoi An, known for being a UNESCO World Heritage site, also has an amazing beachscape, which makes the perfect palette for this links-style course. Moving boldly over a striking landscape of wispy casuarinas, pines and sand dunes The Montgomerie Links Vietnam gives golfers the feeling of being in Ireland or Scotland without the cold temperatures of the British Isles! The first golf course in central Vietnam it takes advantage of its close proximity to both the Vietnam East Sea and the Marble Mountains; the later are visible from many points on the course.

Eight-time European Tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie, better known as Monty to his worldwide fan base, has massaged massive greens and rippled fairways into the stunning backdrop, setting up a golfer’s course. Montgomerie Links has outstanding natural features. The sandy soil, wind-blown dunes and indigenous vegetation combine in creating the frame work for this links-style golf course along the Vietnam East Sea. Only a few other flagship layouts in Dubai, Ireland and Wales can boast the Montgomerie namesake.

A product of Royal Troon in Scotland, a British Open rotation mainstay, Monty has implemented classic, old world design elements into the Danang golf course, such as rolling, treeless fairways, thick rough, massive greens and tight chipping areas. Among the memorable holes are 7 and 13, a pair of par-4’s with some of the deepest bunkers on the course. The only departure from tradition comes in the form of several lakes and streams, a must when considering the region’s seasonably high water table. The course caters to players of all abilities as holes have been routed through an incredibly natural formation of dunes, heartlands and seaside vegetation. This is as close as you can get to true links golf in Vietnam.

In addition to Colin Montgomerie’s championship golf course, there is a large contemporary club house, comprehensive driving range/practice facility, and residential development called The Estates at the Montgomerie Links.

Golf course specialists manage the course which ensures excellent quality and superb conditions year round. Montgomerie Links Vietnam is a must play for anyone on a golf holiday in Danang or Hoi An.
