A shot golfers cannot miss

Although golf has only just started becoming a favourite pastime amongst Vietnamese people, it has a strong appeal to the elite. Not only does golf have significant health benefits, it is also a great way of relaxation. Let us explore the special experiences that enchanted golfers in Vietnam.

Privileged golfing experience at private courses

Practicing and competing at private golf courses are always on the top of golfers’ agenda because of the top-notch services these private golf courses bring. Some of the Vietnam’s most advanced golf courses have already made a name for themselves on the international scene. Van Tri Golf Resort, with the maximum capacity of 400 members and an area of 7,200 yards offers international-standard cuisine.

Skylake Resort & Golf Club with its 2 PGA standard 18-hole courses stretching over 7,300 yards each was voted the most challenging golf course in Vietnam in 2012 and 2013.

Bluffs Ho Tram, designed by legendary golfer Greg Norman on an area of 2,300 square metres with stunning natural terrain and professional customer services.

These golf courses give golfers an experience that leaves nothing to desire. However, private golf courses usually are open only to members and are only available to non-regulars at exorbitant prices.

Understanding the desire of golfers, TPBank launched a credit card with attractive privileges reserved for the world of golf, the TPBank World MasterCard Golf Privé. Card owners are offered enticing benefits at the aforementioned private golf courses.

“Not everyone has the opportunity to play and relax at a golf course as highly ranked as Skylake. This is the ideal holiday paradise, be it for playing golf with business partners or spending time with family —perfect holiday memories await,” said Long (Hanoi) at Skylake Resort & Golf Club.

Be a part of special golf events

Opportunities to participate in golf events and major tournaments as well as to socialise with the cream have been an important facet of golfing in recent years. TPBank World MasterCard Golf Privé cardholders have the opportunity to be invited to the special golf event organised by TPBank, offering exciting networking opportunities with fellow golfers and reputed golf coaches.

Long still holds fond memories of the unique experience joining a recent golf event organised by TPBank: “Not everyone had the opportunity to stand on the same field, be guided by, and compete with world-class golf coach Wayne Johnson from the international academy of EPGA & Abdul Wahhed. I enjoyed this valuable experience when participating in this recent event dedicated to the debut of a TPBank card that is exclusive for golfers at Long Bien Golf Course, Hanoi.”

In addition, golfers owning the TPBank World MasterCard Golf Privé are automatically invited to TPBank’s annual international golf tournament to meet, greet, and connect with other golfers in Vietnam and from around the world.

See a new world at a discount

In addition, golfers owning the card gain interesting privileges, such as a 100 per cent discount when playing at the six most beautiful golf courses in Vietnam and a 50 per cent discount at their 10 favourite golf courses in Southeast Asia. Golfers can comfortably enjoy the poetic mountains and forests of King’s Island Golf Course, or put themselves to the test at the advanced holes of Sky Lake Golf Courses. Enjoy the endless breeze at Montgomerie Links and Long Thanh Golf Courses, or relax at the quiet and scenic Dong Nai Golf Course.

If you are looking for a challenge, swing at the famous tournaments at Vietnam Golf & Country Club. Even more, take your family, friends, and business partners to discover new golf courses in South East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand…) at a 50 per cent discount.
