Dear Golfers,

I hope all golfers have been enjoying the unseasonably great weather here in Danang recently. It has been another fantastic month for Danang Golf Club with some exciting new events on the horizon for 2013.

In recent sensational news, Danang Golf Club was awarded the ‘Best Golf Course in Vietnam 2012’ at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit in Brunei. I attended the event and was honored to receive this award. It is validation of the hard work and professionalism of my staff here at Danang Golf Club and a special thank you must go out to all our wonderful members for helping us become the Best Course in Vietnam 2012.

I would like to thank all those who voted for us and visited our course during this past year. We add this trophy to ‘Best Course in Vietnam 2012’ by US Golf Digest and ‘Best Golf Course in Vietnam’ by Rolex thus making a very successful year.

In November Danang Golf Club was privileged to host the Chinese ‘Danang Cup 2012’. The event was hosted on Saturday 17th with a Gala Presentation at the Crowne Casino in Danang. Danang Golf Club wishes to express our deepest thanks to the organizers and Mr Fang Hong for choosing our club. We look forward to this event to be bigger and better next year.

Some new areas of Danang Golf Club that may interest golfer are the new addition to the Pro Shop, the Cobra Puma wall full of all the newest golfing accessories, club, apparel and oddments from Cobra and Puma Golf. The Driving Range has undergone a facelift with the addition of a new professional Golf Academy called ‘Academy of Golf’ from Singapore, new distance markers and an extended grassed area to practice from.

Our end of year ‘Christmas Monthly Medal’ will be hosted on December 22nd from 7am with a BBQ lunch preceding the game.

With the hugely successful international launch of the Pacific Links program last month we have received golfers from all over Asia planning trips for 2013. If any Danang Golf Club members are travelling abroad, don’t forget to talk with the Sales team to learn what Championship courses you are reciprocal with around the world.

On a personal note, I would like to thank all golfers, staff and management for a hugely successful 2012, we aspire to deliver even higher results for 2013. On behalf of all Danang Golf Club staff Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year and good golfing. See you in 2013!

From the superintendent
Dear Members and Guests,

Christmas wishes to you all, wish you and your family a great festival season.

Golf Course Update: green speed is at 10.5 foot average whilst rainfall for November was 174 ml. Fortnightly verti-cutting and dusting on greens is underway through the cooler months to increase density and growth, fortnightly pencil tinning on greens, monthly pencil tinning on tees, green surrounds, fairways and rough to decrease compaction, increase gas exchange and percolation rates to ensure healthy playing surfaces throughout the wet season.

Last month I attended the Barclays Singapore Open as a volunteer for the week. Andy Johnston, Chief Agronomist and Rodney Mckeown, Superintendent from Sentosa took 42 volunteers from around the world to help with tournament preparations during the week. The volunteer program included hands on experience with tournament preparations on the course and during the event. Danny Potter of Centaur sponsored three presentations after we worked in the morning. Ben Bibson of E-Par talked about Sustainable Environmental Management, Sam Bauer of University of Minnesota talked about Social Media in Turfgrass Management and Russ Mitchell of MAI company talked about Differences between Post-Patent Pesticides and Branded Products. I would personally like to thank everyone from Sentosa Maintenance, volunteers, speakers and sponsorships for an educational and knowledgeable week.

In response to many requests from members we have now installed yardage signs on the driving range, come on down test your length.

Happy December golfing and play well.

Thanks and Regards,
Ali Macfadyen
Course Superintendent

Rule of the month
The R & A has ruled to ban the use of anchored putters and such grips that are considered to anchor against the golfers body. I have found this recent article from the USGA that outlines these rules. Please take the time to read and understand the rules for your own benefit.
