Some members may have seen the changes to our driving range recently with the addition of a new Golf Academy called ‘Academy of Golf’ based out of Singapore and Australia. Currently the Head Professional of the Academy in Singapore, Mr Chris Marriott is the instructor to many leading amateurs and professionals in the region. Shortly a schedule will be available to all golfers on our website to be aware of the times that the highly qualified PGA instructors will be here to help with your game.

Laguna Lang Co has opened to the public and after playing this course personally can recommend all golfers to try this magnificent Sir Nick Faldo design. The course is somewhat similar to Danang Golf Club being a links styles with large sand waste areas and rolling fairways. Graciously the management has offered our members of Danang Golf Club a special rate of 50% off weekday green fees from January 7th to February 7th. Laguna Lang Co is the third course to be a part of the Golf Coast Vietnam group with Montgomerie Links and us.
