Asia’s Grandest Stage:

The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip

JGTA Team Media | November 2, 2019

The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip, host venue of the JGTA Junior Aspirations at The Bluffs, is the epicenter of golf in Vietnam and sets the bar for the growth of the game in Vietnam.

The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip was designed to capture the true essence of links-style golf. Set on the coastline – as almost all great links courses are – The Bluffs is routed over and around towering sand dunes, which have been shaped over thousands of years by the elements.

The wind plays a major role in the experience here; it’s always strong, and its prevailing direction differs depending on the time of year. Said the course’s designer, Greg Norman: “The experience of playing true links golf among the dunes of southern Vietnam and having dramatic ocean views throughout your round will make The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world.”

The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip pit its wits against the best of the best golf venues in the world and was awarded the honor of the #35 World’s Greatest Golf Courses according to Golf Digest. It has also been awarded “Vietnam’s Best Golf Course” (World Golf Awards, Vietnam Tourism, VGA and Vietnam Golf Magazine), and  “World’s Best New Courses” by Golf Magazine USA.

In addition, the course hosted the Asian Tour’s Ho Tram Open in 2015, which went on to win “Event Of the Year”. The event was won by AJGA Tournament host and supporter, Sergio Garcia.
