Danang, Vietnam: Tim Haddon has been appointed General Manager at the IMG-managed Ba Na Hills Golf Club.

Located in Danang, Ba Na Hills was named as the Best New Golf Course at the World Golf Awards 2016.

A professional golf club General Manager, Haddon, who is also an Australian PGA member, has enjoyed a successful 20-year career in hospitality management at leading golf properties throughout  Asia and Australia, including management stints in Melbourne, Singapore, Hanoi and Phuket.

Most recently, Haddon was General Manager at another IMG facility, the Sky Lake Resort and Golf Club in Hanoi, where he successfully moved the club through a key strategic phase. He now brings his strong leadership and management skills to ensure excellent operational standards at Ba Na Hills Golf Club.

“Moving to Ba Na Hills Golf Club is a great opportunity for me, both from a professional and personal perspective,” said Haddon. “I’m truly excited by the opportunity to continue to take this acclaimed club in a positive direction with IMG and alongside such a talented team of associates, who have contributed greatly to the success of the club since its opening last year.”

Ba Na Hills is Luke Donald’s first golf course design project. Owned by the Sun Group, the course is located at the foothills of the famed Ba Na Hills on Vietnam’s central coast, located 25 minutes from downtown Danang.

The par 72, 18-hole course provides a balance of challenge, enjoyment and excitement to golfers of all levels and abilities with five sets of tees to ensure golfers of all standards are assured a pleasurable round.

Ranging from 7,857 yards from the Professional ‘Luke Donald’ tees to 6,022 yards from the white, friendlier tees, a good variety and mixture of playing lengths makes every hole feel unique.
