Sir Nick Faldo: “Silk Path Dong Trieu has the potential to become the best golf course in Vietnam”
On November 8, world golf legend Sir Nick Faldo and the Faldo Design team spent a day at the Silk Path Dong Trieu golf course site.
During the visit to the site, Sir Nick Faldo personally reviewed and evaluated each hole under construction and made adjustments on details of his design work to produce a final golf course that is not only visually stunning but also loaded with challenges for golfers of all abilities.
At an intimate gathering later that day in Hanoi between Sir Nick Faldo and Silk Path’s senior management and project team, he declared: “I really enjoyed my first site visit to Dong Trieu and am very happy with the golf course progress. We have many great golf holes with interesting features including rock, elevation changes, pine trees, streams, lakes and mountain views. Silk Path Dong Trieu has the potential to become the best golf course in Vietnam and I look forward to seeing the construction progress on my next design visit in 2023.”

In addition to being funded and developed by Silk Path Group, a company with extensive knowledge of the luxury resort and five-star hotel industries, the Dong Trieu golf course project also receives advice and oversight from Everygolf Vietnam Joint Stock Company.
With a development area of more than 130 hectares and an investment of more than USD60 million, the project satisfies all requirements for holding future international golf tournaments.

The project’s elements are, specifically, Sir Nick Faldo Signature courses of 18 holes championship length and one 9-hole course of shorter holes integrated with a golf instruction academy.
