BLUEBELL TOURS VIETNAM – Vietnam Golf Coast, a freshly rebooted destination marketing initiative that links Central Vietnam’s best clubs, is boosting the next generation of Vietnamese golfer stars via world-class events and grassroots initiatives. This will help to boost golf tours in Vietnam as well as attract more local as well as international players to golf courses in Vietnam.

With an array of championship layouts designed by the likes of Sir Nick Faldo, Luke Donald, Greg Norman, and Robert Trent Jones Jr, Vietnam has emerged as one of the world’s most exciting destinations for golf tours in Vietnam.

And it flourished in the spotlight at the end of April as the Faldo Series Asia —one of the world’s most celebrated junior circuits – returned to Laguna Golf Lang Co.

The final leaderboard for the event had a decidedly local flavor. A final round of 67 saw homegrown hero Nguyen Anh Minh take top honors at the event. Minh (16) made history by becoming the first Vietnamese to emerge as the Faldo Series Asia Champion. This encourage more parents to invest for their children to play golf in Vietnam and follow golfing as professional careers.

Further back, Vietnamese youngster Le Khanh Hung was tied for third place. Other Vietnamese in the top ten were Nguyen Dang Minh (8th) and Nguyen Duc Son (9th).

The strong showing by young local stars reflects increased domestic engagement with the game. And with events like the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final providing a stage for Vietnamese starlets along with the best Asian juniors, the VGC is offering significant guidance for the stars of tomorrow.

“Our long-term status as the home hub for the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final reflects our support for the junior game in Vietnam and throughout Asia,” said Adam Calver Director of Golf and Destination Marketing at Laguna Lang Co, one of the driving forces in the VGC. “Therefore, it’s fantastic to see a Vietnamese Champion and strong performances from other Vietnamese juniors claiming four of the top 10 spots. The future for golf in Vietnam is looking very bright.” It is surely that, there will be more golf tournaments in Vietnam will be organized.

The Faldo Series, which has nurtured major winners including Rory McIlroy, Danny Willet, and Yani Tseng, has named Laguna Lang Co as its home hub in Asia until 2026. And VGC clubs are doubling down on their commitment to supporting the junior game via initiatives including discounted green fees and youth coaching programs.

“How do we find the stars of the future? Let them play!” said Gary Dixon, general manager at Ba Na Hills Golf Club. “The future of Vietnam Golf Tours is in the hands of the juniors, and we are determined to be at the vanguard of efforts to help their development.”
