The construction of Sir Nick Faldo‘s latest Signature masterpiece, the Silk Path Dong Trieu Golf Course is in progress. The centerpiece of the multi-million-dollar project in the northeast of Vietnam will be an 18-hole championship course, capable of hosting major international tournaments.
Billed as the latest exciting, world-class addition to Vietnam’s burgeoning golfing landscape, Silk Path Dong Trieu Golf Course is located in the town of Dong Trieu in the west gateway of Quang Ninh Province, 78 kilometers from the provincial capital of Ha Long City and 90 kilometers from Hanoi.
Faldo’s brief also includes a nine-hole, par-three course and a teaching academy. Underscoring the ambition of the Silk Path Golf Course Joint Stock Company to create a must-visit destination for the domestic and international markets, villas and a Silk Path Hotel are within the masterplan for a 2023 completion date.
“Retention, transplantation and/or introduction of local and native vegetation will form an important element of the overall design and look of the golf course, which will seek to respond to its locality.”

While the front nine of the championship course will take advantage of the flatter land in the northeast of the site, numerous water hazards will be a feature of the back nine, which will boast a strong finishing stretch.
Made up of par-threes of various lengths, the nine-hole course will be ideal for beginners as well as experienced golfers looking to work on their game while enjoying a fun, relaxing outing with family
The clubhouse will be equally eye-catching, situated in a central location on a vantage point offering spectacular 360-degree vistas, adding class and kudos to a project that promises to become a landmark for golfers.
