The Dalat Palace Golf Club is situated 5000 feet above sea level in the temperate highlands of Dalat and plays downhill to the Xuan Huong Lake. Golfers at Dalat Palace are reminded of the days when the pursuit of leisure was the norm for the French colonialists. Local Vietnamese staff greet guests with warm, friendly smiles and service that has made Dalat a popular retreat for decades. Surveys in 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2007 by Golf Digest ranked the Dalat Palace Golf Club as the top course in Vietnam. Asian Golf Monthly in 2007 recognized the course as one of the top-10 in all Asia. The club is also a member of the Finest Golf Clubs of The World (London). All awards are a tribute to Vietnam’s best golf course!
Built as a 9-hole layout in 1922, it took support from the country’s most prominent golfer (Bao Dai, the last emperor of Vietnam) to finish the construction of a full 18-holes later in the decade. The Dalat Palace golf course was abandoned after WWII and revived in 1959. In early 1966, Dalat palace hosted professional golfers from around the world including Billy Casper several months before he beat Arnold Palmer to win the U.S. Open at San Francisco’s Olympic Club. The course was abandoned again in 1975, after the reunification of Vietnam, and initiated its second comeback in 1993 with a major renovation by a group of American investors. In early 1994, Dalat emerged once again as one of the up-and-coming golf destinations in Southeast Asia with the revival and expansion of Dalat Palace Golf Club.
The original clubhouse, built in 1956, at the Dalat Palace Golf Club is still in use today. The clubhouse has been fully restored with a full pro shop, restaurant, wood burring fireplace and outdoor patio areas. The clubhouse restaurant offers both superb Vietnamese and International cuisine. A full practice facility complements the golf course and clubhouse, with a 290-yard grass driving range, a putting green, and practice bunkers. Areas surrounding the clubhouse are landscaped into beautiful gardens with bougainvillea, red salvia, impatiens, mimosa and hydrangeas. Views from the clubhouse patios include terraced rice fields and pine forests.
