Work began on FLC Samson Golf Links, the largest-ever golf and resort complex in the central province of Thanh Hoa, on May 4, as part of the National Tourism Year 2015 programme to be hosted by the locality.

Once operational in the next 10 months, the 92.4 ha compound will have an 18-hole golf course, greenery, lakes, club houses, high-end hotels and villas on the premises.

Besides this 1.2 trillion VND (50 million USD) project, the home-grown FLC Group also poured nearly 4.3 trillion VND (200 million USD) into a five-star resort next to the golf course, and a cultural and tourism complex on Con Noi Island. The Con Noi facility is expected to become as well-known as Vinpearl resort in the central beach city of Nha Trang.

The investor will spend nearly 1 billion USD in Thanh Hoa in the next five years in the hope of turning it into the top tourist destination in the northern and northern central regions.-VNA
