Phoenix Golf Resort
Phoenix Golf Resort is located 40 kilometers north of Hanoi in an area referred to as 'Halong Bay on Land'. The view from the course and clubhouse is spectacular as the limestone outcroppings which frame and come into play on many of the holes resemble those most people only expect to see in the famous Halong Bay.
The 54 hole Phoenix Golf Resort is the largest pure-play golf facility in Vietnam and second largest in Asia, only after Mission Hills China.
Designed by Ronald Fream, each of the three courses at Phoenix makes use of severe fairway and green undulations as well as clever routing through and around the unique-looking limestone cliffs. Additional Japanese and Korean design inputs ensure that the surrounding environment is both well protected and stunning at the same time.
The three courses are named Phoenix, Dragon, and Master. The Master is a links-style open course, while the other two play in a more mountainous fashion. You may like to try the Phoenix course, but be sure not to miss a single hole on the most spectacular and best - the Dragon course.
The front-nine may well leave you speechless; such is its dramatic splendor and intensity. You can recover your breath on the inward-nine, where the layout gradually brings you back towards the clubhouse to a closing stretch that also contains many beautifully crafted, testing and immaculately presented holes. The long par-4 18th, with a deep watery ravine protecting the front left of the green, is as tough a closing hole as they come.
The huge European-styled clubhouse is on site with the intent to offer every modern convenience to those Hanoi golfers making their way to Phoenix Golf Resort. Unfortunately, despite the use of imported materials the facilities fall short due to lack of maintenance, poor staff service, and a general feeling of incompleteness. Therefore, it is recommended to golf and get back to Hanoi before enjoying any after-round relaxation, food, or entertainment.
