Golf tourism is a niche market in the high-end segment, generating high revenues, promoting growth in destinations and creating job opportunities around the world. Vietnam currently has more than 30 golf courses of regional and international standards, located across the country. In March, Forbes magazine said, “Vietnam has developed golf the fastest in the world”.
According to the representative of Vietnam Tourism Association, Korea and Japan are currently two leading markets in Vietnam. In particular, the golfers are very fond of the yards in Da Nang or Thu Duc, Ho Chi Minh City. In 2019, some travel operators plan to operate charter flights (chartering the whole aircraft) to bring this passenger line to Nha Trang, Phu Quoc.
Having surveyed many regional golf courses, members of the World Golf Tourism Organization have evaluated that the courses ‘quality in Vietnam are after Thailand and Malaysia but have the advantage of being beautiful, new, diverse terrain and designed by many world famous golfers. Meanwhile, golf courses in Japan are more beautiful but cannot operate in the winter. That is one of the reasons why international visitors choose Vietnam to play this sport.
