Bracing sea air, three kilometres of dazzling white beach, spectacular ocean views from the tee, and a challenging 27-holes of championship golf - all of these combine to challenge and entertain players at Vung Tau's Paradise Resort golf club.
Although popular with tourists and Vung Tau's foreign residents and workers, the course at the Paradise resort remains one of Vietnam's least played, which is surprising considering its quality and the level of facilities available to visitors.
The Taiwanese-designed 27-hole course is Vietnam's first seaside golf course, and offers a challenging play to golfers of all levels. The 6,830-yard, par 72 18-hole course is the most widely played - a testing, links-style course affording spectacular views both out over the sea and inland. Palms offer a little shade, and the sea breeze keeps things relatively cool.
Paradise Golf Club offers Vietnam's only 27-hole golf course. Originally landscaped in 1992 and thoroughly renovated and expanded in 2003-4, the Paradise course lives up to its name, featuring an in-land feel despite its coastal situation with plenty of variety of play throughout the 27 challenging holes, while also offeering a links experience on certain fairways and greens.
It is almost impossible to identify a signature hole at Paradise - the course offers so many options that it is a challenge just to decide. Regular players at Paradise suggest that the hand probably represent two of the more spectacular views from the tee, while the hand offer perhaps the most challenging play.
In addition to the excellent golf course, Paradise Resort also boasts a putting green, driving range with sea views, fully equipped club house, and trolley and buggy rental.
Non-golfers are also very well catered for at the club Tennis courts, water sports, surfing, jet ski etc. provide more than enough diversion for even the most energetic, while those looking for more staid activities can opt for a quiet meal in the restaurant, or a drink in the club house.
