The Dalat Palace Golf Club in Dalat, Vietnam

The Dalat Palace Golf Club in Dalat, Vietnam, is convenient to both the Sofitel Dalat Palace and the Novotel Dalat. At 4,920 square feet, the 18-hole golf course offers challenges for all skill levels. Low-handicap players will be tested by a series of lakes that meander through 10 of the 18 holes, as well as strategically placed bunkers which penalize the miscalculating risk-taker. Novice golfers will find relief with large, accommodating greens normally left open for run-up approach shots. This undulating course sits right in the heart of the city, with panoramic views of Dalat. A full practice facility complements the golf course, with an open 290-yard driving range, a putting green and practice bunkers. A round of golf for guests at the Sofitel Dalat Palace or Novotel Dalat costs $65 on weekdays and $ 75 on weekends.
