Dong Trieu, Vietnam: Sir Nick Faldo has predicted his latest Vietnamese design project has the potential to become the best golf course in the country.

Joined by his team from Faldo Design, Sir Nick made his first site visit to the Silk Path Dong Trieu golf course last week – and was suitably impressed with what he saw.

Sir Nick reviewed and evaluated each hole under construction and made adjustments on details of his design work to produce a golf course that is not only visually stunning but also loaded with challenges for golfers of all abilities.

At an intimate gathering in Hanoi between Sir Nick and Silk Path’s senior management and project team, the six-time Major champion said: “I really enjoyed my first site visit to Dong Trieu and am very happy with the golf course progress.

“We have many great golf holes with interesting features including rock, elevation changes, pine trees, streams, lakes and mountain views. Silk Path Dong Trieu has the potential to become the best golf course in Vietnam and I look forward to seeing the construction progress on my next design visit in 2023.”

In addition to being funded and developed by Silk Path Group, a company with extensive knowledge of the luxury resort and five-star hotel industries, the Dong Trieu golf course project also receives advice and oversight from Everygolf Vietnam Joint Stock Company.

With a development area of more than 130 hectares and an investment of more than US$60 million, the project satisfies all requirements for holding future international golf tournaments.

“This is a crucial project for the company in 2022 because it will help to further the promotion of the Silk Path brand and draw in a variety of tourists, including those from markets like South Korea, Australia, the United States, and Europe, in addition to domestic tourists,” said Bui To Minh, Chairman of Silk Path Group.

The project’s elements include an 18-hole championship length Sir Nick Faldo Signature course and a shorter nine-hole course integrated with a golf instruction academy.

Accommodation and top-notch entertainment amenities, and five-star-quality services are also included in the Silk Path branded resort environment.

Along with emphasising the design sector, Silk Path Group has been making significant investments in the development of human resources with a team of domestic and international professionals, combining modern equipment to bring professional and top-notch golf course products and services to Vietnam and the region.

Silk Path Dong Trieu project, which is scheduled to be finished at the start of the fourth quarter in 2023, aims to redefine the golf experience for golf enthusiasts while also becoming a benchmark for high-end golf courses in Vietnam.

Sir Nick owns and heads up Faldo Design, one of the world’s leading golf course design companies which is an Associate Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
