Ah, the game of golf. Ah, the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Ah, the perfect scenario. Bring your clubs to Dalat, because you’re about to partake in your favorite pastime in one of the world’s most desirable places to golf. Up here in the mountains, the weather is cooler, the atmosphere a little less humid and the feel may remind some of an Alp town, as many of the structures are built in a European and French style.
Just in case you were wondering, yes, Dalat was founded because the French who lived here during the colonial era wanted to escape the heat and humidity that is prevalent in the rest of the country. Dalat is also quite scenic as the area is filled with pine-covered hills, lakes and gardens. Also included is perhaps the country’s most colorful market, the Dalat Railway Station which dates back to 1932, Linh Phuong Buddhist Pagoda, the palace of the last Emperor of Vietnam and the fascinating Lam Dong Museum. And weather wise? Pleasantly warm by day and cool by night (as low as 10 degrees Celsius), averaging anywhere between 18-25 degrees.
Perfect weather for golf, right? Following breakfast at the Sofitel Dalat Palace, head to the renowned Dalat Palace Golf Club. This is one of the most highly rated out there, as evident by its classic design chops, the dramatic rise and fall of the terrain and for its flawless bent grass conditions. The course is truly outstanding, and it sure impressed the former President of the PGA Tour Patrick J. Reilly who commented it as ‘one of the most beautiful courses in Asia’.
After your game, enjoy the many benefits of staying in a top property like the Sofitel Dalat Palace. Enjoy a soothing spa treatment or just relax in the comfort of your luxury hotel room, complete with a wide range of amenities.
Can’t get enough Golfing in the Central Highlands? If time permits, head out back there again on your third day here. If you would like to try something else, then you’re in for a treat. The delicious taste of Vietnam can be yours to master! We’ll take you over to the kitchen for a lesson on the country’s cuisine. Led by the master chef, you’ll visit an organic vegetable garden and Dalat Market to pick up your ingredients. Then, you’ll get going and help cook lunch (aided by the chef), one that you and four others will share and enjoy.
