As well as the recently announced Vattanac Golf Resort in Cambodia, Faldo Design is busy in neighbouring Vietman, where the firm is building the first course in the city of Huế, the country’s ancient capital.
Nick Faldo himself was in Vietnam recently, visiting the project at Laguna Lang Co. The course is part of a 280 hectare beachfront resort being developed by hotelier Banyan Tree. Faldo Design’s Paul Jansen is the project architect at Laguna Lang Co. Faldo said: “It is rare to have such diversity, including these trees, sand dunes, rice-paddies, rock formations and this stunning coastline as a framework for a strategic golf course layout.”
The finished resort will have around 2,000 rooms, plus spas, villas, and a convention centre.
