DALAT PALACE GOLF CLUB
The Dalat Palace Golf Club is a golf retreat that soothes the senses, invigorates the body and calms the mind.

Visitors to Dalat are reminded of the days when the pursuit of leisure was an art form. Now with the opening of Dalat Palace Golf Club, this same pursuit of leisure has returned to the majestic and temperate highlands of Vietnam.

Since the opening of Dalat Palace Golf Club in 1922 (originally a 9-hole course), the city has hosted golfers from around the world, including American champion Billy Casper.

In early 1994, Dalat emerged once again as the ideal golf retreat in Southeast Asia with the revival and expansion of Dalat Palace Golf Club. The 18-hole course is crafted into the area’s gently rolling hills, surrounded by stately pine trees, and seated above majestic Xuan Huong lake, named after an eighteenth century woman poet.

The Dalat Palace Golf Club remains linked to its past by the original clubhouse, built in 1956 when the initial 9-hole club was first renovated. The clubhouse has been fully restored and remains in use today with a full pro shop, restaurant, fireplace and outdoor patio areas.

The clubhouse restaurant offers both superb Vietnamese and International cuisine. Local and expatriate staff greet members and their guests with warm, friendly smiles and service that have made Dalat a popular retreat for decades.

Areas surrounding the clubhouse are landscaped into beautiful gardens, respecting another fine Dalat tradition. Vistas from the clubhouse offer a wonderful canvas of terraced fields & pine trees.

At 7,009 yards in length and par 72, Dalat Palace Golf Club is an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all levels. Low handicap players will be tested by a series of lakes, which meander through ten of eighteen holes, as well as strategically placed bunkers, which penalize the miscalculating risk-taker. Novice players will find relief with large accommodating greens normally left open for run-up approach shots, as well as wide, forgiving fairways.

Dalat Palace Golf Club features par 3’s ranging in length from 164 to 234 yards and par 5’s up to 556 yards. These varied lengths allow a true examination of one’s golfing skills, and require that players use each club in their bag – the hallmark of a great golf course.

Four different tee areas on each hole allow players to determine their own degree of challenge on the course. A full practice area complements the golf course, with an open 290-yard driving range, a putting green, and practice bunkers. The Dalat Palace Golf Club is the only golf course in South East Asia with bent grass tees, fairways and greens – considered to be the ultimate playing surface in golf. The large, undulating bent grass greens are maintained to impeccable standards.

They present a friendly challenge unto themselves and once the pace and trueness become familiar players will agree that they are truly among the finest greens in Asia.

Dalat Palace Golf Club is managed by Jeff Puchalski, PGA A-13 and is fully owned and operated by Dalat Resort Incorporation (DRI), a joint venture between Lam Dong Tourist and Danao International Holdings Ltd, a privately-held US-based company.

Memberships to Dalat Palace Golf Club are available and begin at US$ 13,800 for individuals and Annual memberships are available at US$ 2,000 a year. Family and Corporate memberships are also available, with all memberships transferable (except annual memberships).

Corporate nominees can be re-nominated. All memberships are subject to the approval of Club Management.

Getting there - Vietnam Airlines operates daily flights to/from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), a 40 minute flight via the newly built 66 seater, French ATR 72’s. If you prefer to see the countryside, traveling via road from Saigon is a leisurely four hour drive through Vietnam’s scenic rural landscapes, plantations, rivers and mountain passes.
