Vietnam looks to welcome more golf travellers post-pandemic

Awarded with the World’s and Asia’s Best Golf Destination, Vietnam has competitive edges to gain a stronger foothold in the golf tourism market post-COVID-19.

There are about 60 million golf players worldwide, and Vietnam is completely capable of conquering this segment.

The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism said anticipating a growing golf tourism trend ways before the COVID-19 broke out, Vietnamese developers have invested heavily in building golf courses across the country.

Golf courses must get prepared to welcome back foreign tourists when international travel resumes. Besides, it is crucial to apply technology for greater exchanges among golf clubs and better connection among golf courses and local authorities must help improve linkages among tour operators to boost golf tourism.

Additionally, Vietnam needs to open more golf tournaments, attractive enough to both local and international golfers.

In late October, Vietnam was named the World's and Asia's Best Golf Destination 2021 at the eighth annual World Golf Awards held in Dubai./.
