Golf tourism is a trending statement for a luxury leisure vacation. Golf tourism was quite popular in Europe and North America but in the last decade, the emerging demand of most golfers and even amateurs to play golf in the midst of unbeatable backdrops has swayed the way for developing countries to invest on golf tourism. Vietnam is a big example of this list. Encompassing some of Vietnam’s world-class golf courses- King’s Island Golf Resort, The Dalat Palace Golf Club, The Paradise Marina Club, Star Golf and Country Club, Ocean Dunes Resort Golf Course to name a few, Vietnam golf tourism allows the avid golfers to enjoy their hobby complemented by unprecedented natural sceneries of mountains, lakes, and sea. Vietnam, once an emerging golf tourism destination has now turned into a high-end favorite for golfers across the globe, offering an increased competition to traditional Asian golf destinations like Thailand, Malaysia, China, and South Korea.
With its beguiling landscape and serpentine coastline, Vietnam is a highly captivating tourist destination, and when complements its golf courses in Danang, Dalat, Vung Tau, Thu Duc, Phan Thiet and Hai Duong with its elegance and lavishness, playing golf becomes more exhilarating and passionate.
Generally, professionals never get the chance to play golf during their business trips and hence bleisure travelers are not so common in Vietnam golf tourism.

Statistics reveal that most Asians, Australians, and Europeans fly to Vietnam for golf travel experiences. For Asian gleisure travelers from countries like South Korea, China, Japan, the duration of the trip generally remains short for 4-5 days but in a group of 10-30 golfers.
