Firstly, I would like to take the opportunity on behalf of the Staff and Management here at Montgomerie Links to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2018 was a very busy year for the club and there were some great highlights both on and off the course.

We had some great events in 2018 and we would like to take the chance to congratulate all the winners across the year and we hope that they can all be back to defend their titles in 2019. We will open our 2019 event calendar with the staging of the very popular Mercedes Qualifier that will be held on March 30th 2019. Our event team will have all the relevant information out soon, but in the meantime please put this event on your golf dairy as it will be well contested event as always.

Montgomerie Links was very proud and honored to receive the title of Best Golf Course in Vietnam in 2018; the announcement was made in Bangkok in November at the Asia Pacific Golf Awards. It’s a great result for the team here at Montgomerie Links and we are very proud that our hard work has been recognized with this award.

We would like to again wish you all the best in the holiday season and of we hope to see you out here in the great conditions in the near future.

MOMENT OF TRUTH

“…..The caddies were the best I've experienced anywhere. I was amazed. Tam was spot on with yardages and I was testing here with my phone app too. Reading of greens was excellent. The course is not long so decent golfers should play from the back markers. I played from the blues and it was not long for me. Greens a little slow but they are trying to get some grass coverage due to the rain” - BlueHeeler777 (Atlanta, Georgia).

“Had a fantastic day. The course was in immaculate condition and the practice facilities first rate. We had caddies and carts for the round but found ourselves walking while the caddies drove the carts to our ball. The caddies most of the time read the greens pretty well but may have got a couple misreads along the way. Overall though they were pretty good and distances seemed accurate. Highly recommend having a game here and if you get a chance use the practice facilities” - Mantis77 (Murwillumbah, Úc)

“Outstanding course, best “Monty” track I’ve played, the ones in the Middle East have no comparison. Also, one of the best serviced courses I’ve had the pleasure of playing in Da Nang” - Mjsharp66 (Sacramento, California)

GOLF COURSE MAINTENANCE

The wet season arrived late this year, normally in December we have an average of 270 mm but on the 9th of December we had 490 mm in one day and the average this month will be 3 times the normal.

To keep course in good condition during heavy rain, we install extra pipes in for drainage left of green # 14 and near green # 6. We needle tine the greens 2 times a month to get all water get off quickly on surface of green.

At the end of the driving range we make a new nursery using Zoysia grass. When ready we will use this grass around the edges of all bunkers because is stronger than our Paspalum grass.

And the extra hole 16A is progressing nicely already mowing the grass, it will be ready for play off in next 2 months.
