It will be mysole purpose to provide Danang Golf Club with the type of leadership and management that enables success and a first class golf experience. We will continue to raise the bar in service and conditions as the club continues to mature.

I am originally from Northern California, USA and am a Class A member of the PGA of America. It was over 5 years ago that I first came to Vietnam to work in golf course management. My prior experience in the USA includes private club management at The Santaluz Club in Rancho Santa Fe, and many years at The Four Seasons Resort Aviara in Carlsbad, California.

March was a great month for golf with fantastic weather and some good tournament fun at The Mercedes Trophy Qualifier. On the 16th of March, 5 players qualified to play in the Mercedes National Final with a chance to move on the Asian final held in Australia. Congratulations to Mr. Than Duc Nghiem Huan, Mr. Nguyen Dung, Mr. Vo Ngoc Huong, Mr. Le Dai Nghia, and Mr. Vo Ngoc Chau who are the qualifiers for the national final. A very special thing also happened at the beginning of the tournament that day on Hole #2. The first shot of the first flight was a hole in one that won a Mercedes Benz automobile! Mrs. Do Thi Thuy Hien put her fist shot of the day in the hole and won herself a beautiful Mercedes E200 BE. It was very exciting day!

There is more excitement on the way here in April as we get ready for the Danang Golf Club Championship! The Championship will be held over two days, on Saturday and Sunday, April 6th and 7th with shotgun starts on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

From the superintendent

Dear Members and guests,

The pinnacle event for Danang Golf Club each year is the Club Championships. This year they are to be hosted on the 6th and 7th of April. I do hope everyone can join the event and good luck to everyone who plays.

The maintenance report for April 2013 is as follows; The greens speed was at an average of 10.5 on the "Stimp meter", Greens are being cut at 2.5mm, Tees at 7 mm, Fairways 9mm, The roughs at 57mm. The rainfall for March was 31ml.

A scheduled aeration program has been arranged shortly after the club championships on the entire course starting Monday 8th April. Tees will be renovated which includes verticuting the surfaces, coring and top-dressing with sand. Fairways and green surrounds will be lightly verticut and cored to reduce compaction and also thatch buildup.

Isolated dry areas on the course will be cored using 5/8 and back filled with Zeolite and sand, this will hold more moisture and more nutrients for the plant and will improve these areas during the hot summer months.

Happy April golfing and good luck again for the Club Championships.

Thanks and Regards,
Ali Macfadyen
Course Superintendent
