DANANG, Vietnam (Nov. 3, 2018) -- Ba Na Hills Golf Club has again been recognized as "Best Golf Course in Vietnam" and "Best Golf Course in Asia" at the World Golf Awards 2018. The Luke Donald design located just outside Danang received the awards at a gala ceremony held on Saturday at La Manga Club in Spain for the second consecutive year.
Based on a voting system of golf tourism professionals and consumers, the World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses, and golf destinations. “We are proud to receive for the second year running this prestigious recognition from such a well established global award in a very competitive market,” said Tim Haddon, General Manager of Ba Na Hills Golf Club. "Danang is a fantastic place to play golf, and Ba Na Hills Golf Club is a proven world class golf course that delivers an exceptional playing experience.”
Since launching in 2014, the World Golf Awards has come to be regarded as the most prestigious awards program in golf tourism, and to be a winner is truly an honour.

The 18-hole championship course designed by Luke Donald in association with IMG, offers stunning views of the surrounding natural landscape and provides a great test of golf that is unique to Vietnam.
A world class practice facility, full service clubhouse and 18 holes of night golf add to the magnificent experience at Ba Na Hills Golf Club.
