If you want to fit a game or two of golf into your Hanoi holiday, contact the golf course directly and book accordingly. On the weekends, slots fill up quickly and courses run a strict tee off schedule so make sure you arrive with plenty of time. The alternative is to go through an agent who will organise everything for you. This is probably your best shot at getting on a green. There are seven courses for you to explore in and around Hanoi.
Vietnam's golfing course was initially charted by the French, who built greens for their military leaders. Recently, golf has expanded at an international level and Vietnam is not excepted from this rising tide. When golfing around Hanoi make sure to take along plenty of drinking water, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen as the heat and sun can be deceptively fierce. Green fees vary according to the course and number of holes played. Clubs, shoes and caddies can be had for reasonable prices, and a growing number of golf clubs and resorts offer accommodation and other facilities.
