Golfasian, a Thailand- and Vietnam-based golf tour operator, has signed a strategic partnership with Vietnam Golf Coast, a DMO made up of six of golf courses in the central area of Vietnam.
This coordinated push was created to bring golf visitors to the Central Vietnam area and build on the region’s appeal, and to leverage Golfasian’s expertise in tying golf to other regional draws such as the cuisine, heritage and shopping.
“Central Vietnam is certainly one of the best golf destinations in the region,” said Mark Siegel, managing director of Golfasian. “There’s everything from traditional links-style golf to tropical garden-style layouts. Together we can showcase all these great courses as well as the compelling tourism activities available in this part of Vietnam.”
“It’s a real boost for us to have an operator as able as Golfasian on board,” said Adam Calver, director of Golf at Laguna Golf Lang Co. “It has been the leader in golf tourism throughout South-east Asia for the past two decades – including being awarded the best tour operator in Vietnam several years running. Therefore, we are delighted to announce this strategic partnership as we aim to grow the game in Central Vietnam.”
Inaugurated earlier this year, the six member golf courses are Laguna Golf Lang Co, Ba Na Hills Golf Club, BRG Da Nang Golf Club, Montgomerie Links, Vinpearl Golf Nam Hoi An and the soon-to-open Hoiana Shores.
Established in Bangkok in 1997, Golfasian boasts a membership base numbering over 160,000.
