BRG Da Nang Golf Resort is situated on the fledgling central coast of Vietnam with 350 hectares in area (200 hectares Nicklaus course and 150 hectares Norman course) and similar to what the world’s first golf courses were carved from. It is the first golf course in Danang to harmonise designs from the industry’s top two designers: Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman.
Location:Truong Sa Street, Hoa Hai ward, Ngu Hanh Son, Danang City, Vietnam
Types of Golf course
1. Norman Course is the first true links style course in Southeast Asia. Its tapestry of Old World features is reminiscent of the traditional links courses of the UK, while its indigenous surroundings call to mind the acclaimed courses of Australia’s Sandbelt region.
2. Nicklaus Course is the first true bulkhead course in Southeast Asia. Inspired by world-class Florida style courses, the authentic hardwood bulkhead materials forms a key feature of the Nicklaus Course golfing strategy around Coco River.
BRG Da Nang Golf Course’s chief feature is a 7.160-yard, 18-hole, links-style layout that was designed in the true spirit of the game — blown-out bunkers, firm and fast fairways that bleed gently into wild seaside vegetation, rugged waste areas, swales and hollows — by Australian golf legend and former world No. 1 Greg Norman.
Following the banks of Coco river, Nicklaus Course owns the broad fairway, features the first and only genuine North America hardwood bulkhead, and is one of the longest course with 7.380 yards, 18-hole, and Par 73.
