My own trip through Vietnam in 2005 showed me a country that had come a long way from the days of the 1970s warzone. But I was floored to recently learn that significant parts of the Ho Chi Minh Trail have been converted into a golf resort.
The Ho Chi Minh Golf Trail launched in July 2007 as Southeast Asia’s first integrated golfing course. It is a connection of courses with first class hotels, golf academies, all with stunning dune-strewn topography. What better way to celebrate the development of Vietnam from a backwards, war-torn Southeast Asian nation to an economically developing nation?
