Ba Na Hills Golf Club named on Golf Digest list of world's greatest courses

20 January 2020

IMG managed Ba Na Hills Golf Club in Danang, Vietnam has been included on Golf Digest’s biennial ranking of the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses. The club has entered the International ranking on the 89th position.

Golf Digest’s Course Ranking Panel includes more than 1,700 North American golfers and over 350 international players, featuring one of the most exclusive and respected Golf Course Rankings on the planet.

Designed by Luke Donald in association with IMG, the stunning Ba Na Hills Golf Club is set in the foothills and native forests of the famed Ba Na Hills, only 25 minutes from Da Nang City, Vietnam. Opened in 2016, the course is surrounded by magnificent scenery that offers spectacular views on every hole. Playing to a par of 72, this highly regarded championship layout, offers a great test of golf and a wonderful golf experience. A world class driving range and magnificent clubhouse add to the excellent facilities.

The Luke Donald design has also recently won the awards for both 2019 Asia’s Best Golf Course and 2019 Vietnam’s Best Golf Course at the World Golf Awards ceremony held in Abu Dhabi. This is the fourth year in a row Ba Na Hills Golf Club has won at the World Golf Awards, that started in 2016 with the World’s Best New Golf Course. The club has won both Vietnam and Asia’s Best Golf Course every year since then.

Paul Burley, Senior Vice President, IMG Golf Course Services commented: “We’re extremely proud to see Ba Na Hills Golf Club being included in such a prestigious global ranking. It’s amazing if you think that the course only opened in 2016, yet has already been recognised several times as one of the best golf courses not only in Asia, but around the world.”

Tim Haddon, General Manager, Ba Na Hills Golf Club commented: “To be one of the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses is a fantastic achievement for the whole team and ownership. We’re also proud to be associated with names such as Luke Donald and IMG, which have been a great support to us since opening in 2016. We look forward to continuing to welcome golfers from around the world to Ba Na Hills and Vietnam”.
