Located off the southwest coast of Vietnam, the idyllic island of Phu Quoc might be the best tropical paradise you’ve never heard of. With golden beaches, tranquil waters, spellbinding sunsets as well as verdant woodlands and 5 star luxury resorts, it won’t stay secret for long.

There’s more to Phu Quoc than unforgettable scenery and luxury accommodation though, for the island is home to one of the continent’s best golf courses, the world – class Vinpearl Golf Phu Quoc.

Vietnam collected awards for Asia’s Best Golf Destination and World’s Best Golf Destination at the 2019 World Golf Awards, and it’s easy to see why at Vinpearl Golf. Nestled in natural beauty on the north of the island, Vinpearl Golf Phu Quoc is the last word in majestic golf experiences.

The IMG designed course was opened in 2015, as a part of the complex Vinpearl Phu Quoc. Staking a huge claim for the best luxury beach resort in Vietnam, Vinpearl Resort Phu Quoc offers a 402 room hotel, 220 villas, the child friendly VinWonders (a.k.a Vinpearl Land) Theme Park and Safari, a casino, wellness spa, as well as a restaurant, convention and retail complex — all within a stone’s throw of the glistening ocean.

The pristine 18-hole course at Vinpearl Golf Phu Quoc flows through 100 hectares of unspoiled woodlands and lakes along the Ganh Dau Commune. Two separate 9 hole loops guide players through the peaceful and abundant forests, where indigenous wildlife roams free, and emerge from the woods before meandering around a number of sun soaked lakes.

Each 9 hole course is directly accessible from the back of the clubhouse, which itself warrants high praise. Designed using locally sourced wood and complete with a thatched roof, the clubhouse slots elegantly into its surroundings. Inside though, everything whispers the arts of nature design, from the warm tones of the wood panelled locker rooms to the panoramic view of the course from the bar & restaurant.

Top of the range Titleist clubs and Footjoy shoes are available to rent if you’ve elected to leave your equipment behind, and the club pro shop stocks high end golf-wear, accessories and equipment. Full equipment rental is available to use to, from and on the course.

If you want to polish your skills or indeed take a beginner lesson, you can make use of the driving range and putting green before taking to the perfectly manicured course at Vinpearl Golf Phu Quoc. Full practice facility and lessons available from novice to experience golfers if you want to learn the game or brush up on your skills.

Groups of a maximum of four players are guided around the fairways and greens by expertly trained, English speaking caddies. It’s required in Vietnam that caddies are used, unlike in many European countries or Australia. These caddies know the fairways inside out, and are a valuable source of knowledge for long-haul golfers on the run of each hole.

Each and every hole presents a different challenge, and the finishing holes of each course bring the play to a wonderful climax. The piece de resistance of Vinpearl Golf Phu Quoc, however, is the Phu Quoc course’s third hole. Make sure to stop for a moment and take in the stunning views from this enjoyable 145 yard par 3, which plays out onto the cusp of Bai Dai Beach, with its green surrounded almost entirely by water.

After 18 holes of enjoyable golf in an enchanting natural environment, it’s well worth your while to unwind for a period back at the clubhouse. Shower facilities are available to freshen up before sitting back for a meal or drink.

The bar is well stocked with beer, wine and spirits as well as plenty of non-alcoholic options, while the considerately-curated restaurant menu offers an array of Vietnamese and Western dishes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served a la carte and buffet style.

By day, this course is special, but in the late afternoon and early evening hours, it stirs an entirely new magic. At around 5 pm year round, the sun begins to set over the east sea and the island takes on a golden hue. The temperature drops just a touch, and a cool gentle breeze picks up.

For the most awe-inspiring of golf experiences, book your spot on the course for the mid afternoon in order to finish up around this “Golden Hour”.

After a stimulating day on the fairways, it’s only a short drive back to the main resort. Lay by the pool with your feet up, get pampered at the spa, or sit down to a high end dinner at one of the litany of restaurants at the Almaz complex. If you’re feeling lucky, head to the casino which has its very own sports bar and even a nightclub! With plenty of entertainment in store for the next day at the safari, the theme park, or just a simple stroll along the private access beach.
