Recently, the 19th hole was introduced to the golfer community of Vietnam, raising the total number of holes of BRG Kings Island Golf Resort to 54. Specifically, the 19th hole is situated in the “Royal Tee,” an exclusive area for play-off grounds, and is perched on top of a waterfall, overlooking two separate greens—“King Green” and “Queen Green,” posing plenty of must-try challenges to golfers.

Additionally, Kings Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, the eldest son of the world’s golf legend Jack Nicklaus and president of Nicklaus Design, stretches over the hillside of Ba Vi District and Dong Mo Lake, offering golfers diverse and breathtaking natural landscape.

Jack Nicklaus II highlighted that Kings Course was born to please the kings of golf with experiences flying beyond expectations and royal service quality.

Talking about the beauty and the golfing experience on Kings Course, Jack Nicklaus II highlighted that Kings Course was born to please the kings of golf with experiences flying beyond expectations and royal service quality.

Particularly, Kings Course has welcomed foreign golfers from South Korea, Thailand, and Malaysia, all of whom left positive feedbacks regarding the exquisite natural landscape, including the 30-metre waterfall and the natural lake, and the cleverly-designed golf tees as well as the international-standard service quality.

To date, nearly 40 golf courses were introduced to domestic golfers, drawing substantial attention from golfers in the region as Vietnam was ranked among the top golf tourism spots in the Asia-Pacific. Additionally, the country offers great growth opportunities for the hospitality industry, such as hotels, culinary and shopping experiences.

According to a recent survey by BRG’s system of golf courses, the past several years recorded a notable upsurge in the total number of golfers, especially foreign ones.

Since Vietnam was reported to possess plenty of five-star golf courses stretching over the 3,000-kilometre coastline, Nguyen Thi Nga made a commitment on behalf of BRG Group to construct at least 10 more international-standard golf courses, taking advantage of the recently improved infrastructure, such as airports and hotels.
