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.
