  • Vietnam Golf & Country Club

    Day 3: Vietnam Golf & Country Club

    After enjoy buffet breakfast at your hotel. We travel to the Vietnam Golf and Country Club - Lee Trevino designed and home of the 2008 Vietnam Carlsberg Masters Asian Tour Event. The club is home to two 18-hole courses (East and West). Initial impressions of this course upon arrival are fantastic. Impeccably manicured greenery flanks the drive in as you pull up to the modern clubhouse and are directed to the spacious locker rooms. The courses themselves are well worth the trip. The older West course is marred slightly by the presence of a single giant tree in the centre of the fairway on several holes, a design quirk that is slightly overused but enjoyed by many. Nevertheless, holes such as the 5th - a tricky short dogleg par-4, and the 18th - a grandstand closer played downhill through a narrow funnel of trees, are top shelf holes by any standards. The East course is slightly more forgiving than its Western companion due to its wider fairways. However, hugely undulating greens and plentiful water hazards mean that it’s far from easy. Top holes here include the 5th and the 6th, the second of which is an uphill par-5 and is probably the toughest of either course.

    Transfer back to Saigon city.

    Enjoy your special dinner on Bon Sai cruise, cruise along Saigon river, enjoy your dishes and listening to traditional folk music, sing and dance. You will have relaxation-time to catch the over view of the city, people working at Saigon port.
