The former French hill station of Dalat is the birthplace of golf in Vietnam. Discovered by Europeans in the late 1800s the city was established in 1912 and quickly became fashionable due to its 1,500 meters altitude and cool average 18 degrees centigrade temperatures. The French endowed the city with wide boulevards and its European charm remains today. Many beautiful lakes and waterfalls can be found in and around Dalat together with hills, pine-tree forests, vegetable gardens and flowers. Dalat has more than 300 French colonial villas scattered on the hills, the best of which now serve as glamorous hotels and a sign of good times past.
“Land of peach blossom”, or “City of flowers”, “Foggy town” are the beautiful names that lovers put in this beautiful plateau city. At an altitude of 1500m above sea level, surrounded by high mountains, Da Lat always has a mild and cool mountainous climate all year round, with rich vegetation as varied as hundreds of species of flowers, evergreen pine forests and fresh crop fields. Thanks to these favorable conditions, the Da Lat Flower Festival is held every year with vivid colors of flowers, freshness and deliciousness of fruits and vegetables, attracting enormous tourists to attend and experience. In addition, there are many beautiful natural and romantic landscapes such as Xuan Huong Lake, Cu Hill, Love Valley, Than Tho Lake, Prenn Waterfall, Cam Ly Waterfall, Elephant Waterfall and Lang Biang Plateau. It is this gentle, dreamy beauty that has consumed so much ink of artists and poets over the generations for “The City of Thousand Poems.”
In 1922 the plan for Vietnam’s first golf course, the Dalat Palace Golf Club, was conceived. However, it was not until Bao Dai, the last King of Vietnam, developed his own golf interest that Vietnam’s first golf course was actually built and opened for play in the 1930s. In 1994, a multi-million dollar restoration project was completed and since that time Dalat Palace course has been recognized as one of the leading courses in the whole of Asia.
