Schmidt-Curley Design to create a new 18-hole golf course in Ha Long City.

Award-winning Schmidt-Curley Design has begun construction on another golf course Halong Bay, Vietnam.

It marks the company’s second project for the FLC Group and will bring world-class golf to the destination resort town, considered among Southeast Asia’s prime tourist destinations.

The course is uniquely situated high above the town centre on a mountain property that offers epic, sweeping views of Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its towering, vegetated vertical rock formations that rise from the calm blue waters of Ha Long Bay.

The course will offer numerous green sites with the stunning backdrop of Ha Long Bay viewed from high above, framed by rock outcrops and mature native vegetation punctuated with pines. The site and its dramatic terrain offers a drastic departure from the sandy dunes of many Vietnamese sites along the coast, including the Schmidt-Curley Design, 10-course project underway in Quang Binh. Being above a series of ridges, the course will feature dramatic, sweeping views on every hole and strong elevation changes in many cases.

At Ha Long Bay, Schmidt-Curley Design has once again teamed up with Flagstick Golf Construction Management and its President, Martin Moore, another veteran of transforming difficult terrain into stunning designs.

“Ha Long Bay will soon have one of the most photogenic courses in the world,” said Brian Curley, who is heading up the effort. “We are very fortunate and honoured to continue our maiden efforts into the Vietnam golf market with the FLC Group, a team with enormous vision that has its sights set on creating fantastic golf on world-class properties that will soon be at the forefront of the travelling golfer’s list of must-play destinations.”  Curley also said the design team is eager to create a course with unique features, including a wide variety of length, such as a 110-yard par-three overlooking Ha Long Bay.

The 18-hole Ha Long Bay course is expected to be completed by year’s end and open for play in 2017.
