Ba Na golf course is located in the valleys which are surrounded by mountains. The golf course has extremely diverse natural terrain and abundant vegetation. The holes at the top of the course offer breathtaking views of the valleys below.
It is necessary to have a reasonable height change between the holes and the appearance of large trees or small winding streams that increases the level of difficulty and danger as well as the golf holes. This par-72 golf course has a length of 7,595 yards that not only creates challenges but also provides relaxation and enjoyment for golfers of all levels. The change in height as well as the different slope of each hole makes it much more difficult to accurately calculate the distance that the ball will roll. This requires golfers to have a variety of shots and be well-skilled throughout the 18 holes.
As observed, the front 9 holes have the shape of a traditional park golf course which is surrounded by pine forests. The rest 9 holes are quite long with up and down terrain surrounding the mountain with many twists and turns that make the shots often obscure the view. Those are very arduous and challenging golf holes.
Besides, the Sand Trap at this place is very special with a lot of long grass around the edges and sides of the sand trap. You can easily see this from the tee box or ball strokes approaching the fairways. The greens are usually placed at an angle to the fairway and are only a bit winding. This makes it easy for the golf course to have many options for placing holes as well as for golfers to have many ways to approach the green.
Holes #4 and #5 are two of the most memorable holes. Both are par-5 holes, but only the fourth hole can reach the green by 2 shots. Hole #5 is quite long with a tee shot over the water lake and the next 2 hits will be with a long iron or hybrid to bring the ball to the green neck. Hole #10 par-4 is quite easy to join and is one of the highest positions on the golf course. This is a great opportunity for you to take wonderful photos from the green. Hole #12 par-3 has a reverse, downhill direction and is one of the best locations of Bana Hills Golf Club.
The golf course’s top-notch facilities include a modernly designed clubhouse, a golf practice course and exercise skill regions on real grass, and a pro shop. The restaurant has a panoramic view of the golf course, with a menu that includes many delicious Vietnamese dishes.
Due to management by IMG, Bana Hills Golf Club is always operated and maintained to international standards. All 18 holes are full of light and allow late golfers to finish their last holes before it is dark.
