The 13th edition, organised by Vietnam Investment Review newspaper, is expected to see about 280 athletes tee off.
Apart from prizes for the winners of four categories of men and women, the organisers also present awards for the longest drive and nearest to the pin, while three hole-in-one prizes are up for grabs.
All cash made from the tournament will be used to support excellent students who are in disadvantaged conditions nationwide.
After 12 years the event has collected nearly US$670,000 in donations, handed out 15,000 scholarships and repaired school facilities in 40 cities and provinces.
