Cam Ranh, Vietnam

Steve Marnoch, Director of golfmarnoch Limited, International Golf Course Architects is also the Principle of Golf Course Design for The Vitala Group with projects around the globe working within a multi-disciplinary and multi-national team.

The designs were formulated after a hot summer visit to Vietnam during 2009 to collate all the relevant site data and details before formulating the plans and supporting reports/documents. Staying in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) and flying into Cam Ranh Steve hugely enjoyed his first visit to Vietnam embracing the local culture and especially the food!

Designed within a low lying area surrounded by rivers running into Cam Ranh Bay the planning for the golf course and associated facilities had to take into consideration burial grounds and existing water ways to produce the final layout. The routing takes full advantage of the proximity of water with the outward 9 holes running anticlockwise with water hazards predominantly on the right followed by the inward 9 holes with the water on the left yet designed with risk reward in id allowing the golfer to choose the level of difficulty from each tee.
