PROJECTS over the years
Hoiana Shores showcases an excellent course of impeccable design by the very genius of Robert Trent Jones Jr.
The course highlights unspoiled and natural looking terrain, with an amazing coastline that gives golfers spectacular views of not just the course - but also the Eastern Sea and the nature around. The course, which is also close to the famous Cham Islands, offers a Golf Club (HSGC) which provides exciting and engaging links golf experiences for every level of golfer.
Linksshape worked on this course extensively from start to finish, and we faced various obstacles involving new changes thanks to weather and many other common course construction subjects. Regardless, our Vietnam team succeeded in managing the construction of the amazing Hoiana course. The course, constructed with an environmentally friendly mindset by Robert Trent Jones Jr., offers a delight to players with the low-impact nature of this course.
We are very proud to have constructed this amazing course, and to have experienced working alongside many amazing industry professionals.
The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip is a Greg Norman designed golf course located on the southern Vietnamese coastline, around 80 kilometres southeast of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The uniquely designed links style par-71 golf course was named “Best New Course of 2014” by industry bible Golf Digest and was rated #74 in the 2016 Golf Digest Global Top 100 golf courses. It is an exceptional course that is recognised and held in high esteem internationally.
As the main contractor, Linksshape worked closely with course designer Greg Norman and consultants from IMG Golf Course Services in order to create this masterpiece. It is built on a coastal plateau elevated 50 meters above sea-level, with salty sea breezes often flowing onto the site - a benefit granted from it’s unique geographical layout. The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip features towering dunes near the sea with hole routing allowing for increased challenge for even the best of golfers, thanks to the affect of the seaside winds. Next to the course is The Grand Ho Tram Strip golf resort which is a 5-star hotel featuring a casinon, making this course the first in Vietnam to combine a casino, resort and golf course all at once.
Ba Na Hills Golf Club was Luke Donald’s first design project, constructed with the contributions of Linksshape under the management of IMG. Linksshape was contracted to undertake the site clearance, bulk cut & fill, and rough shaping.
This professionally designed and internationally recognised course features 18 holes - stretching over 7,800 yards, Vietnam’s longest - and a spectacular sunset view every evening. In fact, this course is a pleasant alternative to the traditional and boasts a peaceful setting away from the coastline with lower winds.
The courses 18 holes are all comprehensively lit, allowing golfers to play in the evening or as dusk settles in delivering a relaxing and beautiful sight - a truly unique experience that fits in perfectly for a world-class golf course. Included in the course is a golf academy with onsite PGA professionals.
Discovery Bay Golf Club
