Asian Tour Heads Back to Ho Tram

HK Golfer - - Divots -

The Asian Tour will re­turn to Viet­nam’s most ac­claimed golf fa­cil­ity in 2018 and 2019, as the Ho Tram Play­ers Cham­pi­onship will take place Dec. 6-9 next year, and then again at some point the fol­low­ing sea­son. In 2015, the links-style lay­out on Viet­nam’s south-cen­tral coast staged the Ho Tram Open, which was won by reign­ing Masters Cham­pion Ser­gio Gar­cia and voted ‘Event of the Year’ by Asian Tour mem­bers.

Since open­ing in 2014, the spec­tac­u­lar Greg Nor­man de­sign has earned a num­ber of ma­jor ac­co­lades, in­clud­ing ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ at the 2015 World Golf Awards. The Bluffs was also the only course in Viet­nam to make Golf Di­gest USA’s 20162017 rank­ing of the ‘100 Great­est Golf Cour­ses in the World.’

“The Ho Tram Open was a huge suc­cess,” said Michael Kelly, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man and CEO of Asian Coast Devel­op­ment Ltd. (ACDL), de­vel­oper of the Ho Tram Strip. “It’s time for some of the world’s best golfers to come back to Ho Tram, and for us to once again show the world how spec­tac­u­lar The Bluffs and the coun­try of Viet­nam are.”
