4-star rated course
The Dalat Palace Golf Club is a golf retreat that soothes the
senses, invigorates the body and calms the mind.
Visitors to Dalat are reminded of the days when the pursuit
of leisure was an art form. Now with the opening of Dalat Palace
Golf Club, this same pursuit of leisure has returned to the
majestic and temperate highlands of Vietnam.
Since the opening
of Dalat Palace Golf Club in 1922 (originally a 9-hole course),
the city has hosted golfers from around the world, including
American champion Billy Casper.
In early 1994, Dalat emerged once again as the ideal golf
retreat in Southeast Asia with the revival and expansion of
Dalat Palace Golf Club. The 18-hole course is crafted into
the area’s gently rolling hills, surrounded by stately pine
trees, and seated above majestic Xuan Huong lake, named after
an eighteenth century woman poet. The Dalat Palace Golf Club
remains linked to its past by the original clubhouse, built
in 1956 when the initial 9-hole club was first renovated.
The clubhouse has been fully restored and remains in use today
with a full pro shop, restaurant, fireplace and outdoor patio
The clubhouse restaurant offers both superb Vietnamese and
Local and expatriate staff greet members and their guests
with warm, friendly smiles and service that has made Dalat
a popular retreat for decades.
Areas surrounding the clubhouse are landscaped into
beautiful gardens, respecting another fine Dalat tradition.
Vistas from the clubhouse offer a wonderful canvas of terraced
fields & pine trees.
