BA NA HILLS GOLF CLUB RECEIVES DUAL ACCOLADE AT 2020 WORLD GOLF AWARDS
The Luke Donald design voted as ‘Best Golf Course in Asia’ and ‘Best Golf Course in Vietnam’ for the fourth consecutive year.
It is the fourth consecutive year that Ba Na Hills Golf Club has received this dual accolade and the fifth consecutive year the club has been recognised in the prestigious awards after it was voted ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ in 2016, just a few months after its official opening.
It has been a successful few months of media recognition for Ba Na Hills Golf Club. Following a year of exceptional traveller and tourist views on the popular Tripadvisor website, the club also received a prestigious Traveller’s Choice Award in September, ranking in the top 10 percent of outdoor attractions worldwide.
Designed by former World No.1 golfer Luke Donald and managed by IMG, Ba Na Hills Golf Club, in Da Nang, Vietnam, is set among some of the most impressive forests and mountain ranges in the region. In addition to an 18-hole fully floodlit championship golf course, the destination includes a modern 18-bay covered driving range and short game area, a golf academy, restaurant and bar, and VIP dining rooms. The course is ranked 89th in Golf Digest magazine’s highly acclaimed World Top 100 Courses ranking.

Reaction from Luke Donald, course designer
“I am proud that my very first golf course design project has been so well received and attracted so many good reviews. Ba Na Hills is set among beautiful hills in the forest and we could really make full use of that land to create a golf course that flowed through the hills. I think that makes it unique.”
