The southern capital of Vietnam, Mui Ne has risen from an isolated fishing village to an up market resort holiday destination with some of the most exclusive eateries, shopping arcades and market in Vietnam. Resorts such as Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa can be found along the coastal strip, overlooking tropical gardens that lead down to the beach.
Mui Ne is well-known for its seasonal surf waves and windy weather, but it’s also the location of the very first links golf course in Vietnam. Just a short drive from Mui Ne is the Sea Links Golf Club, a world-class course which is considered to be one of the most challenging in Asia. Situated high atop a cliff, 60 meters above sea level, Sea Links combines spectacular panoramic views of the South China Seas and the beautiful Mui Ne Bay that can be enjoyed by players whilst they navigate around the lush fairways and rolling bunkers.
Many of the formidable sand dunes that this 18 hole golf course was constructed on, still remain, so there’s no shortage of frustrating bunkers. Plus, there are more than a few water hazards to keep in mind here. Mui Ne’s year-round warm climate also gives this golf course an advantage no other links course has, players need never worry about the heavy rains along the south or the cold weather of the north, affecting their game.
The Sea Links Golf Club provides members and guests with an array of delicious food and cool beverages from their restaurants, and a place to relax in between games. There’s also a driving range near the club house for golfers who want to practice their swing. If you’re new to the game, a specialty golf store, located at the club house provides everything from premium golf club sets for pro golfers to comfortable sportswear for beginners.
