Heron lake Golf Course & Resort (18 Holes)
Dam Vac Golf & Country Club was designed to create a unique golfing experience in a peaceful setting in harmony with its natural surroundings. The course, approximately 40 km from Hanoi and covering some 90 hactares, blends well with the lake which is the main feature of the entire complex and was created by the completion of the Dam Vac Reservoir in the Vinh Phuc Province. An abundance of palm and evergreen trees provide a picturesque setting to entice any golf enthusiast to challenge his/her physical and mental abilities.
The special attractions of this Graham Taylor-designed course has to be the ‘beach’ bunkers which share the borderline with the water of the lake thereby allowing the water to meet the sand at some part. Depending on your luck, a normal well-practised bunker play could well turn into a mess of sand-mud if the ball would so unkindly land on some damp patches. The greens are generally large but the treacherous slope could prove decisive on many holes.

Heron Lake Golf Course & Resort
( fun and exciting layout, good for all golfers)
Heron Lake is a nice golf course outside of Hanoi. True to its name the Heron Lake course is situated among wildlife areas and most golfers will get frequent sightings of native heron birds. Designed by the same architects as have done Kings Island and Black Mountain in Thailand, The Hanoi golf course makes use of water on most holes and extensive greenside bunkering. Turf is the latest Paspalum grass importuned from Australia making hitting off both fairway and rough areas not too demanding.
The clubhouse is contemporary styed and features full locker/changing rooms as well as an international restaurant.
