Dear Golfers,

On behalf of all the staff here at DGC, I do hope all golfers had a wonderful Luna New Year and enjoyed some great times with family and friends. Danang Golf Club was a constant buzz during this time with over 200 golfers a day playing our course.

2013 holds some exciting events for Danang Golf Club and it all starts with the Mercedes Trophy Qualifying on the 16th March at 12pm shotgun. There will be loads of prizes for golfers with the best 5 members that own a Mercedes car scores gaining an invitation to the regional stages of the Mercedes Trophy for Vietnam. We have secured a "Hole in One" Mercedes Car for the first player to score a hole in one on the 2nd Hole par 3.

Now it seems we have seen the end of the cooler temperatures and the course has pulled through really well thanks to Ali and his team. You may notice many of the bunkers around the course have been renovated with new "walk ins" built and further maintenance carried out.

Danang Golf Club is also proud to announce the dates of this year's Club Championship's will be hosted on the 6th and 7th of April 2013. A 36 Hole event to determine the best players of the last 12 months. Any members or business owners that may be interested to sponsor our event can contact with the sales team on email: nu.dang@dananggolfclub.com

In other news, I want to take this opportunity to inform all members and golfers of DGC that I will be moving on to take up a new position within Vietnam. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Danang Golf Club and meeting all the golfers this past year. I want to thank the management of VinaCapital for their trust in me and also my staffs who have strived to achieve the honor of being the Best Course in Vietnam. Good luck and I look forward to seeing DGC continue to thrive and achieve further greatness. See you all around the greens...

From the superintendent
Dear Members and Guests,

Happy New Year, I hope you and your family had a great TET holiday and best wishes for 2013.

Finally Winter has passed and we are into Spring. Temperatures have eventually increased and slowly the course is experiencing recovery on the greens, tees, surrounds and fairways.

Our first verti-cut of 2013 was carried out on the 12th February, weekly light verti-cut with a light dusting of sand to be carried out to reduce the thatch and grain on the greens. Grooming will be done also 3 times a week on greens to increase vertical growth and also reduce dead leaf material. Continual aeration on tees, surrounds, fairways and roughs will continue to increase gas exchange, increase root growth, increase percolation rates and also reduce compaction. We have also implemented a removal program of casuarinas around the course as they are over grown now and causing root problems, air movement problems and shade problems for the turf. Thinning out the trees properly will improve grass health and grass playability.

Happy February golfing.

Thanks and Regards,
Ali Macfadyen
Course Superintendent
