true essence of links-style golf

The Bluffs Grand Ho Tram Strip was designed by a true legend of the game: Greg Norman. The ‘Great White Shark’ as he’s lovingly called, spent an astounding 331 weeks atop the world golf rankings and won the Open Championship twice.

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 Grand Ho Tram Strip one of the most unique golf experiences in the world.

HOLE BY HOLE

PREPARE YOURSELF

Hole 1 - Par 4

Stroke Index WET Season: Men: 18 Ladies: 18
Stroke Index DRY Season: Men: 17 Ladies: 17
Yardages: 337 331 299 248

Much like the opening hole at storied St. Andrews, the 1st is a par 4 that shares a fairway with another hole (the 9th), making it a very manageable start to the round. But the straighter the tee shot, the more straightforward the approach. Favor the left side of the elevated green with your second, as there’s good chance a miss in that direction will still kick onto the putting surface.

Hole 2 – Par 3

Stroke Index WET Season: Men: 10 Ladies: 12
Stroke Index DRY Season: Men: 5 Ladies: 7
Yardages: 232 183 144 106

The first of the short holes at The Bluffs is also one of the most difficult. While it plays downhill, it’s very well protected — national forest left (out of bounds), a large front bunker and another behind the green that are ready for any miss clubbed shots. Play the yardage and make a smooth, confident swing. A relatively flat green is the reward for those who manage to find it.

Hole 3 – Par 4

Stroke Index WET Season: Men: 8 Ladies: 10
Stroke Index DRY Season: Men: 1 Ladies: 1
Yardages: 376 360 351 268
Don’t be fooled by this straightaway par 4’s ‘blind’ tee shot; there is more room out there than can be seen from the teeing area. Left-center of the fairway offers the best angle to come in from, as the green is guarded all along on the right by a large, deep bunker. The green also slants toward the trap, so any chip or putt attempted in that direction ought to be played with soft hands.

Hole 4 – Par 3

Stroke Index WET Season: Men: 14 Ladies: 14
Stroke Index DRY Season: Men: 7 Ladies: 9
Yardages: 172 147 129 98
The second par 3 is considerably shorter than the first, but with an extremely steep trap front left reminiscent of the 4th hole bunker at Royal St Georges, and a pot bunker front right, it’s extremely well defended. It’s also more exposed. Give extra consideration to the wind’s strength and direction before selecting a club. Then take aim at the middle of the green, whether the pin’s there or not. Par is an excellent score.
