A successful tournament beyond expectation

During the past week, all the attention of the Vietnamese golf community has been focused on BRG Da Nang Golf Resort, where the 2022 BRG Open Golf Championship Da Nang – the first ever Asian Development Tour (ADT) tournament – took place in Vietnam.

Golf fans have been watching the exciting competition between Asia Tour’s top golfers. Until the last shot, the tournament couldn’t be concluded and had to be determined by a playoff hole. The victory belonged to Chinese golfer Chen Guxin, who had a very convincing style and showed his bravery and skills to win the Nicklaus course of the BRG Da Nang Golf Resort.

The heads of Da Nang City and BRG Group presented the championship trophy and prize to the winner, Chen Guxin.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the 2022 BRG Open Golf Championship Da Nang, Mr. Tran Phuoc Son, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Da Nang city and Head of the Organizing committee of the Da Nang Golf Tourism Festival, gave a special thanks to the companionship of BRG Group and other sponsors; the efforts of agencies, units, and localities; the professionalism of domestic and international golfers; and the enthusiasm of fans, which have made this a memorable tournament.

Mr. Son affirmed: “Da Nang city warmly welcomes clients and tourism ambassadors in the coming seasons of the tournament. With this impressive start, we are committed to taking the tournament to a higher level, and seek to lure world-class golfers.”

Mr. Tran Phuoc Son, Vice Chairman of Da Nang City People’s Committee, shook hands with Madame Nguyen Thi Nga, Chairwoman of BRG Group, acknowledging BRG Group’s contributions to the success of the tournament.

The success of the tournament highlighted the willingness to contribute of BRG Group 

In order to organize a tournament like the 2022 BRG Open Golf Championship Da Nang that brings a lot of excitement to golf lovers in Vietnam, it is impossible not to mention the bold statement of BRG Group as title sponsor, bringing an international professional event to Da Nang at the right moment.

After two years greatly affected by COVID-19, Da Nang city needs a push to attract more domestic and international sightseers to its beautiful coast, especially in the high-end class. Therefore, a continental golf tournament in Da Nang would be a great opportunity to fascinate golf lovers and widely promote the best attractions of Da Nang to luxury golf globetrotters, who always have a higher spending than ordinary tourists.

That’s the ultimate goal, but to bring a tournament at continental level with the participation of top players is not a “long story short”. Besides financial requirements, the organizing committee also needed to find a partner who was confident in their abilities.

And BRG Group itself is the guarantee of the success of the tournament.

Right after receiving the information from Da Nang city about this international golf tournament, BRG Group sent an official letter asking to partner with Da Nang city.

BRG Group has rich experience in the management of the BRG Da Nang Golf Resort, the first and only 36-hole golf course in Da Nang complying with international quality standards. This is a golf course that can be said to be “unique in the world” when it was designed by two golf legends, “The Golden Bear” Jack Nicklaus and “The Great White Shark” Greg Norman. Last May, BRG Da Nang Golf Resort was selected by the American television channel CNN to be introduced on the program “Living Golf” in order to find out why Vietnam has been voted as “Asia’s Best Golf Destination” and “World’s Best Golf Destination” for many years in a row. In June, BRG Da Nang Golf Resort was included in Golf Digest Magazine’s list of the “Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the World” for 2022. The highly rated golf course was a main factor that convinced ADT to choose this venue.

Besides the “hardware”, which is the amazing playing field, the event was perfectly carried by the “software”, which is the people of the BRG Group. As a golfer and golf enthusiast, Madame Nguyen Thi Nga, Chairwoman of BRG Group, herself, has continuously followed and detailed the preparation and operation of the event, saying: “This isn’t an ordinary tournament. It also builds the trademark of BRG Group, of Da Nang city, and of Vietnam in the eyes of the top golfers on the continent.”

Prior to the tournament, PGA-quality’s world-leading golf operators and maintenance specialists from BRG Da Nang Golf Resort and other BRG golf courses had to constantly check and survey every hole, making sure that the quality of the course had to be at its best. In addition, the most talented cadets were also selected for intensive training before joining the Da Nang caddy team for this tournament. It can be said that the staff of BRG Group’s Golf Division have devoted 100% of themselves to this tournament.

The quality of the people and the professionalism of the BRG Group have been clearly proven during the 3 days of the tournament: the fairway quality was sublime; the green was perfect to guarantee the best ball speed for a high-level professional tournament (10.5–11 feet). Golfers, reporters, and international spectators coming to BRG Da Nang Golf Resort for the first time were very surprised by the beauty of this golf course. Almost everyone who was on the course shared that they want to come back here again and again, not only to attend the tournament but to experience the golf course while travelling, as well as other famous landmarks in Da Nang city. 

With the success of the 2022 BRG Open Golf Championship Da Nang, BRG Group has emphasized its leading position in the Vietnamese golf industry by providing the best services, the most attentive staff, and the best grass on the golf course, pleasing all golfers participating in the tournament.

BRG Group has been part of the Vietnamese golf industry since its first day. The success of the 2022 BRG Open Golf Championship Da Nang is another bold mark of BRG Group, confirming that Vietnam is fully confident in hosting bigger golf tournaments in the region and around the world. These will be significant international events to boost Vietnam’s tourism and Vietnamese people and to create conditions for Vietnamese golf to get closer and closer to world golf.
