Sir Nick Faldo said the new Silk Path Dong Trieu course in the Quang Ninh province of Vietnam “has the potential to become the best course in Vietnam”. He was speaking while on a visit to the site where his Faldo Design team are progressing with construction work.
“I really enjoyed my first site visit to Dong Trieu, and I am very happy with the golf course progress,” said Faldo. “We have many great holes with interesting features including rocks, elevation changes, pine trees, streams, lakes and mountain views.”
The work is part of a $60 million project by resort developer Silk Path Group on a 320-acre site 50 miles east of Hanoi. Faldo has recently adjusted the design of the 18-hole course. A new nine-hole academy course and teaching facility are also planned.
Bui To Minh, chairman of Silk Path Golf Course, said: “It is our vision to deliver a golfing paradise in Vietnam. The golf course will strive to showcase the very best of Vietnam and will aim to attract golfers from all over the world who wish to discover a truly unique and memorable golfing experience.”
“I look forward to seeing the construction progress on my next design visit in 2023,” said Faldo.
Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2023.
