The original course at Dalat Palace was laid out by the French not long after World War I, but fell into disuse after World War II. Reopened again in the late Fifties, the club was visited by Billy Casper in 1966 in the lead up to his US Open victory; the modest English clubhouse dates from this period, and contributes to the vintage feel of the place. After again falling into disuse after the US withdrew from Vietnam in 1975, the classic design was reinvigorated by Brit Stenson in the early Nineties. The club occupies a site at nearly five thousand feet in elevation, with evergreen woods and abundant native water hazards that factor into more than half of the holes. Most of the fairways are generous, as are the greens of bentgrass, which allow for some bump and run. Players of all kinds will appreciate the welcoming service and the clean crisp atmosphere.

A fabulous and pretty members type course, very different to the resort style courses we have played previously so far in Vietnam. In many ways it felt like we could have been in France or Portugal. An excellent challenge and a great variety of holes from start to finish. Having played only once it’s a testament to how much we enjoyed it as we can both remember almost all 18 holes a couple of days after playing. The card is a little unusual with a short Par 34 front nine and a much longer Par 38 back nine. There’s plenty of challenge, especially on the back half with holes playing over large water hazards just short of greens a number of times. Lots of elevation and directional changes, carries off the tee over water and good greens (despite recent coring and sanding). Really a very good place to play.
