We are moving into summer time and the weather is getting hotter so Summer tee times will be in effect beginning Saturday, May 11th. We will continue to operate a two tee start from tee's #1 and #10 on the weekends so more players can get off the tee early and as of May 11th, the first tee time will be 5:44 AM to allow players to start earlier and beat the heat!

From the superintendent

Hi all at Danang Golf Club,

Most of you now know that Mr. Ali Macfadyen has left for another project and I was lucky enough to replace him as Golf Course Superintendent. Being Australian and from Brisbane I’m very familiar with Danang’s weather and course conditions so have settled in quite nicely. My previous posts were India, Malaysia and USA just to name a few and have ranged from construction, grow-in and general maintenance to a PGA tournament in New York.

I hope to continue the high standard we have here and work to keep the course moving forward. If you see me around the course please say hello and I welcome your feedback.

For the month of May I will be focusing on the following areas:

• Fairway aeration and de-compaction. One fairway a day will be worked on. Coring and removing dead grass will allow more airflow and water penetration, the sand will be rubbed in to create and smoother more level fairway surface to play off.
• Weekly dusting of sand on greens. So light you will not notice as we water in immediately
• Weekly needle tine on greens to create airflow into soil profile
• Cleaning of native areas and re-planting with local species
• Continual spot spraying of weeds
• Bunker preparation will change. Smooth firm faces to prevent “plugged” lies

See you on the greens!

Rule #8: Advice; Indicating Line of Play

Rule 8-1 says that, During a stipulated round, a player must not give advice to anyone playing in the competition other than his partner, or ask for any advice from anyone other than his partner or either of their caddies. (Breach of the rule is loss of hole in match play and 2 stroke penalty in stroke play)

This can be a tricky rule because of the definition of advice… Here is the definition and it is in two parts:


• Advice is any counsel or suggestion that could influence a player in determining his play, the choice of club or method of making a stroke.
• Information on the rules, distance or matters of public information, such as the position of hazards or the flagstick on the putting green, is not advice.

So, if you are playing in a competition with someone, you cannot ask them what club to use or tell them what club you think they should use, but you can ask how far it is from tee to green. If you have any questions on this rule or any others in the Rules of Golf, please feel free to ask me anytime!
