The country has earned the title for two consecutive years now.

In addition, The Grand-Ho Tram Strip in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau received the “Asia’s best golf hotel” award, while Ba Na Hill Golf Club in central Da Nang city was honoured with the title of “Asia’s best golf course”.

According to the VNAT, the tourism sector needs to devise a long-term strategic development plan and popularise golf tourism, which in turn will bolster tourism growth and investment in Vietnam.

As the country boasts a number of challenging golf courses with spectacular scenery, golf tourism holds huge potential in Vietnam’s tourism development.

World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses, and outstanding golf destinations.

The global voting process lasted seven months this year. Votes are made by professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry, including senior executives, tour operators, agents, media professionals, and golf tourism consumers.

Earlier, the ministry selected Australian professional golfer Greg Norman as the next ambassador for Vietnamese tourism for the 2018-2021 tenure.

Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien presented the appointment decision to Norman at a ceremony held in Hanoi on October 31. Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted a reception in Hanoi for Norman the same day.
