Danang: Finally after three years construction theMontgomerie Links Vietnam is finished. How can a project possibly take that long? Who cares, hopefully, the old motto “great things take time to brew” can be applied here. I am still waiting for an invite from Jon and his crew there. They seem to be quiet shy about starting promotions, no idea why!

Haiphong: Yup another Vietnam golf destination in the making. Do Son Golf Resort, just outside of Haiphong, will be opening 18 holes at end of September. Haiphong is 65 miles east of Hanoi, near Halong Bay. The course designer is Pacific Coast Design who also did the excellent Black Mountain in Hua Hin. The golf resort’s owner also owns Kings Island in Hanoi so it should be good! Once Do Son opens it will make a great stop for those on the way to/from Halong Bay, thus easing the logistics of the long Hanoi-Halong overland trip.
