115 Golfers Competed at the Vietnam Golf Trophy in Hanoi!
Feb 21 – 26, 2016
STORIES, PICTURES & RESULTS
The inaugural Vietnam Golf Trophy took place in Hanoi from 21 to 26 February, 2016 and we are back to base after a grand 1st Edition. It was great putting it together, especially working with the diversity of 14 different nationalities that made up the 115 golfers and 30 non golfers. The event was fully sold out.
The Vietnam Golf Trophy is very simply a celebration of a combination of two things – Golf & Vietnam. As an attraction, Vietnam has few equals – given the landscape, the natural beauty, the unique culture and fabulous cuisine, which is a huge draw even for those, who have visited this country multiple times. And golfers were awestruck by the diversity and landscape of the golf courses.
The weather gods were kind, even if a little cold that allowed uninterrupted golfing and evening experiences. Judging from the response and the feedback, the Vietnam Golf Trophy is set to become a bigger and a better experience as we learn from the inaugural edition and most specifically the feedback of the participants.
The tournament was played over 3 rounds of golf at Sky Lake Golf Club, Tam Dao Golf Club and Phoenix Champion Golf Course with competitions in 4 age-based categories. The Welcome Dinner at the Dong Son Drum restaurant was as Vietnamese as it could get with a stunning ambience and with Lacquerware art displayed by the Art Tunnel Gallery. The grand finale of the Gala and Prize Distribution Dinner at an exotic cave in Ha Long Bay was truly outstanding with free flow of drinks, great music, dance and of course prizes for the winners.
