Sapa Grand Golf Course

Outstanding characteristics

Sapa Grand Golf Course, also known as Lao Cai Golf Course, is located in Bat Xat, northwest Vietnam near the border with China.

Developed by Sun Group and designed by IMG, an esteemed international golf course design company, it stands as the province's first publicly accessible course. This makes it a suitable choice for both local Vietnamese golfers and international visitors. The hilly terrain presented a challenge in accommodating all 18 holes within the limited space available. As a result, some holes are positioned in valleys while others traverse along ridges, offering breathtaking views of the picturesque countryside. The course incorporates significant changes in elevation, enhancing the overall golfing experience. A notable feature of Sapa Grand Golf Course is the presence of lakes, streams, and waterfalls that gracefully wind through the site, intersecting six holes starting from the twelfth and concluding on the seventeenth.

Additionally, the course runs alongside narrow ridges and deep valleys, providing glimpses of the Red River that separates China and Vietnam from several vantage points. While the predominantly fertile soil is occasionally interrupted by rocky outcrops, errant shots may find themselves ensnared in native grasses surrounding the fairways or the shrubs and trees beyond the course's boundaries.

To cater to golfers of varying skill levels, each hole at Sa Pa Grand Golf Course offers five sets of tees, ensuring flexibility and accessibility. The fairways are wide, and the greens are spacious. The use of platinum paspalum grass guarantees excellent playing surfaces, although its ability to withstand the colder temperatures of the North Vietnam mountains remains to be seen.
