Hoiana, which will be Vietnam’s largest integrated resort once completed, will hold a soft opening of its golf course on Sept. 23.
The 18-hole course at the Hoiana Shores Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones II.
It will be the first facility in the resort to open to the public. The $4 billion property was scheduled to open late this year, though Suncity Group, a major shareholder, recently suggested there may be a delay until 2020.
The first phase will feature more than 1,000 rooms, suites and villas, managed by Rosewood Hotel Group, 4 kilometers of pristine beach, a suite of beachside pools and restaurants, a stand-alone beach club, and a casino managed by Suncity Group.
“Hoiana Shores Golf Club will indeed be the first component of this larger development welcoming both domestic and international tourism to our shores,” said Steve Wolstenholme, Group COO at Hoiana. “As a group we intend to showcase the vibrancy and economic potential of not only Hoi An and Central Vietnam but this region in general.”
The course will be available for limited “preview play,” from September whereby all proceeds from visiting golfers will be donated to local charities.
