Hoiana Shores Golf Club - Ranks for Vietnam in Golf World Top 100  

The award-winning Hoiana Shores Golf Club has added another accolade into its impressive honor board by being the only Vietnamese representative in the World Top 100 list, ranked by Golf World Magazine.

Hoiana Shores Golf Club (HSGC) has quickly earned its spot as top clubs in the world according to the latest World Top 100 Golf Courses’ rankings by Golf World Magazine. HSGC is one of the only four Asian golf courses in this coveted list, ranked along with other famous courses globally. 

“The bar was naturally set exceptionally high for a course to make it into the most prestigious and competitive of our rankings and very few Asian or indeed Middle East courses made the cut when up against the powerhouses of Britain & Ireland, the United States and Australia. However our experts in those areas did pinpoint a handful of candidates and Hoiana Shores was one which comfortably made it into the 100. What made Hoiana Shores stand out in Asia, and in particular Vietnam, is the beauty of the duneland and the fact that the development footprint allowed golfers more than just a cursory excursion into the prime beachside strip. There are several holes right along the coastline, and although all of the holes are attractively built, those along the sea are especially memorable,” shared Mr. Chris Bertaram, Top 100 Courses & Resorts Editor.   

Set against a spectacular coastline and unspoiled terrain, approximately 8km south of UNESCO World Heritage Site Hoi An, HSGC is one part of the larger Hoiana Integrated Resort. Celebrated architect Robert Trent Jones II designed HSGC to complement its unique location. Carved from a treeless dunescape with six holes in direct contact with Vietnam’s East Sea, the par-71, 7,004-yard layout is one of the very first truly authentic links courses to be developed in Southeast Asia.

It also features a luxurious clubhouse with multiple dining areas, a state-of-the-art function space, locker room facilities and a golf shop. In addition, the Golf Academy provides a tailor-made golf coaching program, featuring an indoor teaching studio and outdoor driving range, fully equipped with 26 hitting bays and an excellent practice bunker, pitching area and putting green.

“We are honored to be recognized in the Golf World Top 100. This recognition once again shows our continuous efforts in the journey to offer exceptional golfing experiences that will inspire both new and returning golfers to Hoiana Shores,” said Mr. Ben Styles, General Manager of HSGC.

Previously, HSGC was recognized as the “World's Best New Golf Course 2020” by World Golf Awards, “Best New Golf Course” for 2019 at the Asian Golf Awards. It was also awarded “Best Golf Course in Vietnam” by Golf Digest while Cloud Golf Association in China nominated Hoiana Shores Golf Club among the top 100 golf courses in the Asia-Pacific region.

Not only offering exceptional golfing experiences, HSGC has, from the beginning, committed to contributing to the socio-economic development of local communities. When the course welcomed its first players in September 2019, in lieu of any payment to the course, golfers were encouraged to make donations to support local schools. After just six months of Preview Play Period, from September 2019 to March 2020, HSGC raised a total sponsorship value of over four billion VND. This collection fed into a wider plan to improve the learning environment for children at three schools in Quang Nam: Duy Hai Kindergarten, Duy Hai Primary School and Ngo Quyen Secondary School.

All these prestigious awards as well as HSGC’s contributions to the local communities are strong testament to the dedication of the operation and project management team in the quest to continuously provide top-class travelling experience to Vietnamese people, at the same time, help to place Vietnam on the global tourism map.
