Why Montgomerie Links is special ?
Eight-time European Tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie, better known as Monty to his worldwide fan base, has massaged massive greens and rippled fairways into the stunning backdrop, setting up a golfer’s course. Montgomerie Links has outstanding natural features. The sandy soil, wind-blown dunes and indigenous vegetation combine in creating the frame work for this links-style golf course along the Vietnam East Sea. Only a few other flagship layouts in Dubai, Ireland and Wales can boast the Montgomerie namesake.
A product of Royal Troon in Scotland, a British Open rotation mainstay, Monty has implemented classic, old world design elements into the Danang golf course, such as rolling, treeless fairways, thick rough, massive greens and tight chipping areas. Among the memorable holes are 7 and 13, a pair of par-4’s with some of the deepest bunkers on the course. The only departure from tradition comes in the form of several lakes and streams, a must when considering the region’s seasonably high water table. The course caters to players of all abilities as holes have been routed through an incredibly natural formation of dunes, heartlands and seaside vegetation. This is as close as you can get to true links golf in Vietnam.
In addition to Colin Montgomerie’s championship golf course, there is a large contemporary club house, comprehensive driving range/practice facility, and residential development called The Estates at the Montgomerie Links.
Golf course specialists manage the course which ensures excellent quality and superb conditions year round. Montgomerie Links Vietnam is a must play for anyone on a golf holiday in Danang or Hoi An.
