NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2012 Vietnamese
Dear Golfers,

It is with much excitement and anticipation I would like to announce that Danang Golf Club has joined with Pacific Links International and its worldwide network of renowned golf experiences as one of its ‘Affiliate Clubs’. This benefit of membership gives DGC members exclusive playing privileges at international championship courses around the world and at many of them without payment of a green or guest fee.

Founded in 2009 in Canada, Pacific Links International is focused on implementing a plan whose main feature is reciprocal access to multiple clubs around the world that have strong design and deliver a memorable golf experience. Pacific Links International is rapidly expanding the number of owned courses in North America. They currently own or operate nine courses located in Hawaii, Las Vegas and West Virginia in the United States. While some restrictions apply, this new membership concept unites the very best courses within Asia, Australia and America and provides unique experiences to the members of the participating clubs. The list of clubs is growing rapidly and soon will include clubs in Europe. View the map of courses here.

Greg Norman is the international brand ambassador for Pacific Links International. Recently I was invited to the corporate launch of Pacific Links International during the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship at Kapolei Golf Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, a USPGA Champions Tour event held in September. I had the opportunity to meet and discuss this new program with Greg. He was proud that Danang Golf Club which he designed was selected to join the program.

Shortly, members of DGC will be receiving a special Pacific Link International Membership Card for identification when you access these privileges. Members of the Pacific Links Affiliate Clubs will be able to book times up to 60 days in advance directly with the Pacific Links Las Vegas Reservation Center or through Danang Golf Club’s membership office, whichever is more convenient for you. At the Pacific Links owned courses in Hawaii and Las Vegas, and at all other Affiliate Clubs there are no green or guest fees. At the Reciprocal Access Clubs, members of Danang Golf Club are given a discounted green fee. Cart and/or caddie fees apply at all clubs.

Any golfer lucky enough to score a Hole in One on this hole with at least 3 golfers in the group will win 1 Return Airfare on any route VietJet Air operates.

Danang Golf Club has once again been recognized as the Best Course in Vietnam, this time by the illustrious Rolex Top 1000 Golf Courses in the World. Rolex has published a book to promote the Top 1000 golf courses in the world whereas they have an editorial committee to research and survey the best of each country. Danang Golf Club received the highest points for Vietnam; Rolex was quoted as saying “The Best though arrived recently courtesy of Greg Norman in 2010 where his ‘Dunes Course’ at Danang is now unquestionably the best in the country”.

Finally this month’s October Member’s Monthly Medal was hosted on the 27th with over 50 participants. Congratulations to all golfers and the winners of the day. The Medal winner was Mr. Le Hong Minh with a gross score 79.

From the superintendent
Dear Members and Guests,

Danang Golf Club, Dunes Course greens are running at 9.5 foot currently, we’ve raised the cutting height from 2.5 mm – 3 mm hence the greens feel slightly slower than usual. Raising the cutting height increases turf resoluteness and assists in turf endurance through the wet season. When the wet season has finished, greens speed will be back to the usual speeds of 10.5 to 11.5 feet. Weekly pencil tinning and dusting will also be carried out on the greens to increase the gas exchange and percolation rates before the wet season hits us.

All big renovations have been completed for this year, playing surfaces are recovering well and will be fully recovered within the coming two weeks. Thank you for understanding and being patient when we carry out our renovations of the golf course playing surfaces.

Happy November golfing and play well.

Thanks and Regards,
Ali Macfadyen
Course Superintendent

Rule of the month
Weather Siren
Danang Golf Club is fitted with weather Sirens on both the front nine and back nine for golfers safety. During a storm, the Committee or General Manager may sound this siren to indicate the course is no longer safe to be on. As per the Danang Golf Clubs local rules, three short blasts of the siren will suspend play and as the ‘R and A’ Rules of Golf suggest, any golfer continuing play after hearing the siren would be disqualified. One long blast of the Siren will sound to resume normal play. Golfers, please take notice of this rule as it is only in place for the safety and well-being for all guests at Danang Golf Club.
November Quiz
Be the first to answer the question via facebook, email or phone and win a Danang Golf Club polo golf shirt!
