NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2014 Vietnamese

Dear Golfers,

Last year the latter half of September brought us quite a bit of rain but so far this year the golf weather is still holding up!  At the beginning of the month, The Danang Golf Association held a sensational tournament which was well attended by many VIP’s .  The awards dinner was held outside the clubhouse using the terrace as the stage for the awards presentations and entertainment.  We would like to thank everyone from the DGA for choosing Danang Golf Club as your home for this wonderful event!

You will notice a new Handicap board in the clubhouse at the top of the stairs leading down to the locker rooms.  Updated handicaps and handicap policies will be clearly posted for all members.  In addition to the new board, members can now access their handicaps online by logging in to: http://www.eHandicap.net/?SysCID=dananggc. From this page, just type in the first letters of your name and you can view your current handicap information.  This web page is linked directly to our handicap system so it is absolutely accurate.  From this point forward, official DGC handicaps will be available here rather than on our website page.  There will of course be a link to the page from the DGC website.  Handicaps are updated at the end of each month.

As we approach the rainy season, we will be doing some preparations to the golf course to ensure turf health through the winter season.  The Superintendent’s corner will explain the procedures in more detail but the things we will be doing will not adversely affect play.  Hope you have a chance to get out there and enjoy the beautiful fall weather on the golf course!

Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

General Manager
Danang Golf Club
From the superintendent

Dear Golfers,

As you have probably noticed verti-cutting of fairways has been completed recently, with focus now on hollow tining all fairways in the coming weeks. Compaction from golf carts and foot traffic will be relieved and also allow water to penetrate through the profile after heavy rainfall.

The greens have been receiving consistent applications of calcium during the past month or two with wonderful results. Calcium helps improve soil structure and increase cellular strength in the plant. It also buffers the growing medium from salts and other harmful toxicities.

Verti-training has also continued in conjunction with sand dusting of greens.

Native grass planting has continued throughout the golf course as has weeding of the sandy waste areas.

Good golfing.

Thank You,

Dan Brown
Golf Course Superintendent.

RULE OF THE MONTH

Match Play

Many of you may have watched the recent Ryder Cup competition between Europe and USA.  This tournament is different from most professional golf tournaments in that it is a team event and also a Match Play event.  Match Play is a head to head competition whereby players play against one another in a hole by hole competition.  In this format, the individual or team that wins the hole is deemed to be 1up.  If they win the next hole, they would be 2up and so on.  The match is won when a team is up by more holes than there are left to play in the round; for example, if a team is 3up with two holes to play, they will have won the match 3 and 2. (3up and 2 holes to play)

There are various formats of Match Play: Singles, where two players play one on one.

Foursomes;  where two man teams play against each other by playing one ball and alternate shots.

Four-ball;  where the best score of two players is played against the best score of 2 opponents.  (This is sometimes referred to as “Better-ball” though technically Better-ball is where one player plays his ball against the better ball of two or three others.)

Most players here play stroke play but try some of these match play formats your next time out for some additional fun!

Good Luck and Good Golf!
Thanks,
Joe Millar, PGA
RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY SET YOUR INVESTMENT ON THE RIGHT COURSE

Vietnam’s real estate renaissance continues as the macroeconomic environment solidifies. The local population exudes confidence when shopping for properties; particularly ‘off plan’ from an array of developers offering extended payment plans. Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi recorded 4.500 and 5,100 transactions through the first seven months of 2014, up an astounding 30% and 50% YOY, respectively! Manifesting itself amongst buyers in Hanoi, enthusiasm fuels the increasing desire to purchase outside the capital, including Danang, as decreasing deposit rates spawn a flight from cash holdings into real estate. Project sites with active development spur higher rates of inquiry and sales from the local market and we expect this trend to continue. VinaLiving’s series of successful events over the summer for all its branded projects yielded sales and invigorated the market even further with an increased number of transactions. Enthusiasm abounds as the outlook for upcoming releases promises big things indeed!

Official Launching for The Point will be organizing at Sofitel Metropole Hanoi on 23 October 2014.

VinaLiving will also be holding a special sales event at Park Hyatt Saigon on 21 November for all projects.

To register to attend upcoming events, please contact VinaLiving now.

THE OCEAN APARTMENTS (PHASE 1) - NOW 82% SOLD!

It thrills us to announce phase one of VinaLiving’s lastest resort offering, The Ocean Apartments! The first of three low-rise towers launched in April and it offers premium finished one- and two-bedroom apartments. We introduced the newest jewel on Vietnam’s booming coast at promotional events in both Hanoi as well as Ho Chi Minh City. Over 350 potential buyers attended the events looking to capitalize and get in early!

With tourism to Danang poised to erupt, the VinaLiving facilities management team offers rental pool services to all our buyers looking to capitalize on the industry, which attracts a growing number of visitors both domestic and international.

In response to fervent demand, phase two pre-launches in December 2014.
