Southern Golf Courses
The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip
The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip was designed to capture the true essence of links-style golf. Set on the coastline -- as almost all great links courses are -- The Bluffs is routed over and around towering sand dunes, which have been shaped over thousands of years by the elements. The wind plays a major role in the experience here; it's always strong, and its prevailing direction differs depending on the time of year.
Said the course's designer, Greg Norman: "The experience of playing true links golf among the dunes of southern Vietnam and having dramatic ocean views throughout your round will make The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world."
The 'Great White Shark' spent an astounding 331 weeks atop the world golf rankings and won the Open Championship twice. His Florida-based design firm has conceived more than 70 international-standard layouts worldwide. But if you ask him, few compare to what he has created at The Ho Tram Strip.
"This is one of only two pieces of land of this quality and character I have ever been given to work with -- the other being Doonbeg [in Ireland]," Norman said. " I'm a firm believer in using what Mother Nature gives us on a particular site. This one has it all."
