Asian Golf Travel Nation - April 2015

Dear Golf Travelers,

Golf in AsiaWelcome to the latest issue of the Asian Golf Nation, the source for news breaking information about golf in Asia. In addition, unique golf playing tips for Indochina's tropical environment, announcements of golf travel promotions and our latest subscription offer are all integral parts of today's newsletter.
It's officially low season and April is one of the best times to visit. The weather is quite warm as we approach the summer season, however most visiting golfers have gone home which means wide open fairways and lower green fees. Golfers enjoy the sunny days, well maintained courses and beach, city or highlands.

For even more fun, why not plan to golf in Thailand, Cambodia, or Laos during the grand water celebration in the middle of the month. This is an amazing festival where water pouring, squirting or throwing are meant as symbols that wash all of the bad shots away when celebrated in the traditional manner. Experience culture, play great golf and enjoy all the rituals and festivities. After all where else can a traditional celebration improve your golf game? Let me know if you have any questions or information on the best places to golf and celebrate.

Our Masters events; the Centara World Masters and the Accor Vietnam World Masters continue to be well received as are our series of Amateur Golf Weeks.  With over 500 golfers already confirmed for Hua Hin in June, this Masters event will be the largest golf tournament ever held in Thailand. Sponsors include the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Centara Hotels and Resorts, TaylorMade Adidas Golf, Coca-Cola, Thai Beverage and many other companies whose prizes will be given away throughout the week of golf and fun. Be sure to sign-up and be part of the festivities before all the slots are taken.
Of course there are lots of golf 'happenings' around the region so with that I invite you to enjoy this edition of the Asian Golf Nation. To those who are traveling with us, thank you for your support. To others who are still at home; I hope to welcome you to the world-class golf courses and unique Asian culture very soon.

A winner of the 2015 World Golf Awards with the title of Asia's Best Golf Tour Operator 2014, Golfasian has once again been nominated for Thailand's & Vietnam's Best Inbound Golf Tour Operator. Please, vote for us now:

Golf news from around the region:

*Nikanti Golf ClubBangkok: Bangkok was ranked 18th among the world's top 25 best destinations by travel Trip Advisor's 2015 Travelers' Choice awards. The nation's capital climbed two spots from 2014. With new courses like Nikanti and Bang Pa-In coming on stream, better visitor accessibility at courses like Amata Spring and Thai CC, the lowest hotel prices of any major city and excellent dining and entertainment Bangkok is also becoming a more and more popular golf destination.


*Bana Hills Golf ClubDanang: Golf in Danang is on an upswing. The Bana Hills Golf Club project is progressing in the hills west of Danang. With major shaping completed the course could be open for play by the end of this year. Designed by IMG and Danang's 4th golf course, Bana Hills will further cement Danang as Vietnam's best golf destination.

Looking out ahead, Vina Capital announced new partners in their new casino, resort, and golf course to be located in South of Danang in Quang Nam Province. According to initial information, phase one will include the development of golf course, casino and hotel and will be completed towards the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019. Vina Capital is the same group that brought us the award winning Danang Golf Club and I expect this new project to be on par or better!


Legend Hill Golf ResortHanoi: Legend Hill Golf Resort, Vietnam's first Nicklaus golf course is moving again. Construction of greens, water hazards and bunkers is in progress. Once completed this unique 36-green and 18-hole layout can be set-up differently each day varying both the length and strategy of each hole and ensuring an interesting golfing experience for all. Legend Hill is situated in the hills, 30 minutes north of Van Tri Golf Club and not far from the Hanoi Airport. The design and build team calls for construction to be completed in two months, with a summer opening. Realistically, an end-of-year opening would be doing well.

*Angkor Golf ResortSiem Reap: Due to popular demand the 4th installment of the Cambodia Amateur Golf Week is to be held August 2-10, 2015. The four-round event plays at all 3 Siem Reap courses and includes entry into the Angkor Amateur Open to be held at the award winning Angkor Golf Resort. Play 2 tournaments in one during this great 8 days of golf and fun.



With that I wish all golf travelers a great start to the season and warmer weather for most ahead. The golf, culture, and beauty of Asia continue to be perfectly suited for an unforgettable golf experience. Tailor-made itineraries fitting your specific needs, expectations and budgets are our specialty; contact us for a competitive quote.

Until the next month, happy golfing and I hope to see YOU in the area very soon!

- Asia Golf Week - Amateur Golf Weeks in Asia
Asia Golf Week

Early March saw Hua Hin the venue for the first of 10 Golfasian Amateur Weeks; tournaments run along professional lines but very much with the emphasis on enjoyment and camaraderie. There were 70 participants from as far afield as Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, United States, Norway, India and the Czech Republic. Players were competing for a huge array of daily prizes in many categories and of course the ultimate accolades of scratch champion and net champions in 3 divisions.

Angkor Golf ResortGolfasian partnered with primary sponsor Amari Hua Hin who were gracious hosts, plus in-vogue golf ball producer Volvik and the Springfield Royal Country Club. 4 competitive rounds were played at golf courses chosen for their quality, challenging layouts and variety, headlined by Black Mountain which was recently awarded best championship course in Asia.  An experienced team of Golfasian administrators, drivers and coordinators led by tournament director Mark Penfold, ensured that everyone could focus on their golf. When players arrived at the course they were greeted by buggies loaded with their clubs and smiling caddies sporting professional-style bibs adorned with their own and sponsors' names. Once group photographs were taken, the tension rose on the first tee just like any televised tournament albeit alleviated by some friendly banter.

The links-style Sea Pines proved a stern test for the opener as a strong breeze blew. Scores were modest and although at first the mood at the daily prize giving and draw for the next day was somewhat subdued, this gave way to a buzz of excitement as stories of good and bad shots were shared and new friendships forged. This was a common theme as you'd expect from a group of like-minded individuals enjoying great weather and a superb golf experience with just a touch of competitiveness.

Angkor Golf ResortRounds followed at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Springfield, then 2009 Best-new-course-in-Asia Winner Banyan and of course culminating in the impeccable Black Mountain which was generally considered the highlight and a great way to finish. At the gala dinner on the last night, in A grade, 5-handicap Nigel Phillips collected the trophy for scratch champion and Joe Napier best nett. B Grade scratch winner was Shaoyu  Xue and best stableford place winner was Sascha Helfrich. Best ladies score was posted by Lada Hongchai.

A welcome feature of the tournament was the 50,000 baht raised for the PIMALI foundation which was enthusiastically supported by Amari General Manager, Christoph Leonard. This was the icing on the cake for an event widely praised as the best anyone had attended; the first of 10 in 2015 in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.     

Our Early Bird Booking offer is 1 free night accommodation or free round of golf at Phuket Country Club for payment in full prior to 20th April 2015.

- Golf Travel Testimonials

Thailand GolferMy name is David Blakeborough. I am from Manchester in the UK but currently live in Doha, Qatar.
I have played golf for 25 years in total, presently off a handicap of 15. I am about to become a member of the Doha Golf Club, home to the PGA European Tour's Qatar Masters. Doha GC is a parkland-style layout bordered by desert wastelands (naturally!). My previous two clubs were a links course in the UK and the prestigious Jumeriah Golf Club in Dubai so I am no stranger to quality golf.

This was my second visit to Pattaya on a trip organized by Golfasian but the first Amateur Week I had attended. Amateur Week is one of 10 annual tournaments run along professional lines by Golfasian in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. While the golf is taken quite seriously rest assured the emphasis is placed on camaraderie and having a good time. I came alone on my holiday but the tournament gave me the opportunity to meet many diverse and interesting people. I was particularly thankful that a group from Australia "took me under their wing" so to speak; this group consisted of some 10-12 golfers of varying ages. I was also lucky enough to meet a couple from the North East coast of the UK so could discuss important matters such as football and 2 wonderful ladies from the Czech Republic. These people all made me feel as if I had known them for years.

The hotel we stayed in (Centara) was ideally located in central Pattaya which made getting around very easy. My itinerary was perfect as I arrived two days earlier than most giving me time to get my bearings prior to the golf starting.

One of the best things about the experience with Golfasian is that from when you arrive ‘til when you get home everything is taken care of. The staff are super friendly and help to iron out any small problems that might crop up. The golf itself is run like a well-oiled machine from when the draw is published the night before (in this instance) until you arrive on the tee in your buggy complete with the inevitably charming caddie. The weather was exceptional for golf, the caddies knowledgeable about the course plus speed and lines of the greens and the condition of the courses were outstanding. The cost of all this is a pittance against the staggering cost of golf you can be charged in other parts of the world. One of the most enjoyable things about this particular golf experience is the number of different prizes on offer every day (best scratch/net/front 9/back 9/near pins etc.) which means everyone has a chance of winning something. Of course we are all aiming for Tournament scratch and net champion...alas not this time!

Thailand GolferMy favorite course was Siam Country Club's Old Coursewhich only a few weeks before had hosted the Honda LPGA Thailand 2015 so you can imagine how immaculate it was. My favourite hole was the par 4, 5th on Siam Plantation's Sugar Cane nine with its twin fairways and seemingly more bunkers than you could count. My best score came on the Plantation Course so I'll nominate that as my favourite day.
The "après golf" was huge fun as you can imagine with a large group of like-minded people.  When we got back to the hotel there was a party atmosphere with some elated after a great day's scoring and others debating the strengths and weaknesses of their swing over an ice cold glass of beer. During the week there was of course time to visit the city's various markets and abundant restaurants.
All in all I had a great time and would recommend golfing in Thailand to anyone. If you are travelling alone an Amateur Week may be the perfect holiday solution. I am interested in further exploring the golf courses of Thailand and other South East Asia countries, particularly Vietnam about which I've heard great things.

- Nha Trang - A Destination Review

Nha Trang - A Destination ReviewNha Trang, while generally known to local and Asian tourists, is just blossoming onto the international golf scene. The two international standard Nha Trang golf courses rank among the best in Vietnam. Vinpearl Golf Club is a spectacular design located on its own private island. Diamond Bay Golf & Resort, completed in 2013, is one of Vietnam's most strategic layouts and will challenge even the best professional golfers.

The southern coastal city sports many mid-priced and high-end resorts, some even on their own private island. After golf Nha Trang city lights up with its many entertainment and dining options. Fresh seafood is plentiful, inexpensive, and highly recommended. 

In addition to playing great golf and enjoying top resorts, a few days exploring the surrounding countryside and offshore islands is also a good idea. Notable activities and sights include a day cruise to a nearby island and visits to Long Son Pagoda and the well-preserved Po Nagar Cham-era ruins.

Nha Trang is served by Cam Ranh Airport with multiple daily flights to Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Danang.

- Featured Golf Course - Diamond Bay Golf & Villas

(exciting layout on Nha Trang beach)

Diamond Bay Golf & VillasDiamond Bay Resort & Golf is a 7244 yard championship layout golf course designed by American golf course developer and architecture Andy Dye. Diamond Bay has a natural habitat playing along the South China Sea on one of Vietnam's best beaches. The course is easily reached from both Nha Trang City and airport in less than 15 minutes.

The Diamond Bay golf course is set on 76 hectares and nestled naturally in between the mountains and sea. Natural marshes, majestic pines and sandy dunes contrast sharply with the lush fairways. Platinum TE Paspalum grass, white sand bunkers and incredible views of Nha Trang Bay create stunning color contrasts on every hole. Early morning golfers can further enjoy the beauty of the fog-clad mountains in the distance.

With its unique scenery, Diamond Bay Golf & Villas is one of the truly fascinating Vietnam golf courses. Platinum TE Paspalum grassed from tee to greens makes for excellent hitting surfaces throughout the golf course.  The signature par-3 hole 12 is nicknamed the "smiling hole" as it has been built overlooking the sea and resembles a smiling face. Hole 18 is also an excellent finishing hole that requires 3 accurate shots to reach the green in regulation on this 546 yard par-5.

The clubhouse and associated resort are both 5-star with facilities and amenities that discerning golfers expect and appreciate.

- Golfing Tips - Affirm, Visualize, Commit & Execute

-Golf – The power of positive thinking
Have a mental pre-shot routine...

I am going to hit this near the pin...not I am not going to hit this in the water

Visualize your shot and outcome.
Nick Faldo is a great champion of this process which some of us use but probably without any conviction. Persevere and you'll get better results.

Commit and Execute
After you have programmed your subconscious mind by affirming your outcome and visualizing your success, you no longer need to think about anything.  It is now time to fully commit to your shot, step up with confidence, and make it happen.
