Golf Tourism Predicted to Flourish in Vietnam

BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort is among the high quality courses in Vietnam.

Hanoi, Vietnam: Golfing tourism is poised to become a key revenue generator for Vietnam, according to one of the most prominent individuals in the country’s golfing and business industries.

Founder and Chairman of the BRG Group, among the leading private multi-sector economic groups in Vietnam, Madame Nguyen Thi Nga has been at the forefront of the country’s remarkable economic growth over the course of the past quarter-of-a-century.

And she believes the quality of Vietnam’s 60-plus golfing facilities will, in the years ahead, ensure the country becomes an increasingly popular destination for well-heeled golfers from around Asia and beyond.

During an exclusive interview with the Asian Golf Industry Federation as part of its Women in Sports series, Madame Nga said: “Our country is rich in tourism potential.

“When Vietnam’s tourism industry is considered as a key economic sector, diversifying products and services, aiming for high-class tourists and exploiting natural strengths are extremely important.

“In addition to the goal of attracting tourists, it is extremely important to encourage spending per visitor. So we must have more high-end products and services to encourage tourists to spend double or even triple than regular visitors.

“Golf is playing an important role in attracting such tourists because this is still a new sector with many interesting things to discover.

“With ancillary services supporting golfers, the number of international visitors coming to Vietnam through golf will also bring a larger source of income than regular tourists, which helps stabilise and develop the socio-economy of the locality where the golf course is located.”

As of the start of 2022, the BRG Group owns and operates seven international golf courses in Vietnam, including BRG Kings Island Golf Resort (55 holes) and BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort (18 holes) both in Hanoi; BRG Ruby Tree Golf Resort in Hai Phong (18 holes), BRG Da Nang Golf Resort (36 holes) and the BRG Golf Centre golf academy system, all under an exclusive co-operation agreement with Jack Nicklaus Golf Design and Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf.
