Today we play the Laguna National Masters. Affectionately dubbed ‘The Grand Old Lady’, the Masters Course is a much-loved treasure that has stood the test of time. For the best part of three decades, the Andy Dye-sculpted layout has been lauded for its fast and true Bermuda grass greens, towering raintrees and beautiful lakes. In the best traditions of parkland-style courses, the Masters demands accurate approach shots and astute course management - attributes that have contributed to it winning multiple awards and widespread plaudits from professionals and amateurs alike.

Today you will walk from your accommodation to the first tee of the Laguna National Classic course. Laguna National’s Classic Course revels in its reputation as one of the most difficult and dramatic tests of golf in Asia.

Visually stimulating and refreshingly bold in its presentation, the Classic challenges every element of your game.

We see the landmark red-brick Notre Dame Cathedral, the Central Post Office, with its iron and glass ceiling, designed in 1891 by Gustave Eiffel, the Ben Thanh market and the Hotel de Ville, a town hall lifted straight out of the French provinces. The North Vietnamese came crashing through these gates and ended the South Vietnamese regime.
DAY 11 Monday 22 January 2024 Nha Trang, Vietnam
Today is a day for tourism. Nha Trang has a split personality. One takes the form of a smaller Danang – a bustling Vietnamese city humming with commerce but blessed with access to a beautiful beach. The other is a Western resort town encompassing several blocks of hotels, tourist shops, bars and international restaurants. The city is indisputably beautiful, bordered by mountains, with the beach tracing an impressive long swoop along a bay dotted with islands. Topiary and modern sculpture punctuate the immaculately manicured foreshore. Nha Trang offers plenty to keep you dazzled – from island-hopping boat trips and scuba diving, to mud baths and historic sites.
DAY 12 Tuesday 23 January 2024 Hue/Danang (Chan May),
With a limited time in port we are managing to fit in 9 holes at the superb Nick Faldo designed Laguna Lang Co. Course. In keeping with its links-like characteristics, the Lang Co layout also offers a traditional out-and-back routing, presenting a host of varied shot opportunities along the way.
