Dalat Golf Holidays
Dalat Golf Information
Dalat is a city with more than 200 French colonial villas scattered on the hills, many beautiful lakes and waterfalls can be found in and around Dalat together with hills, pine-tree forests, vegetable gardens and flowers. This city is not only know as flower city but also the birthplace of golf in Vietnam.
Discovered by Alexandre Yersin in 1893 the city was established in 1902 and quickly became fashionable due to its 1,500 meter altitude and cool average 18 degrees centigrade temperatures
In 1992, Dalat Palace was conceived as Vietnam 's first golf course. However, it was not until Bao Dai, the last of the Vietnam, developed his own golf interest that Vietnam’s first golf course was actually built and opened for play in the 1930’s. In 1994, a multi-million dollar restoration project was completed and since that time Dalat Palace Golf Club has been recognized as one of the leading courses in the whole of Asia.
Dalat is an excellent golf stopover for those Vietnam golf visitors looking for a cool destination to contrast the otherwise tropical playing conditions throughout the rest of the country.
