Hoiana Shores GC- hole 16Hoiana Shores GC- hole 16


Hoiana Shores Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr and opened for play in September 2019.

Located in sand dunes right on the coast near Danang in Vietnam, Trent Jones has engineered a modern day links course with firm playing surfaces and artistic, yet strategic bunkering and sandy waste areas.

Although the fairways are wide, the bunkering and waste areas push the player left and right, as they plot their way around what is a quite strategic course.

The big rolling greens are typical Trent Jones and are a highlight.

There are some really interesting pin positions engaging the golfer to make risk/reward decisions on the approach..

This course is made for the running ball, and those that can control they ball flight will enjoy taking on the sea breezes.


Hoiana Shores has been heralded as the best course in Vietnam- if not all of South East Asia

Hoianna Shores also boast a delightful short par 3 19th hole to a near island green.


In my opinion Hoianna Shores has raised the bar in Vietnam- a country I really rate for high quality, world class golf.

 I think Hoiana Shores is clearly the best course in Vietnam!
