The BRG Golf Hanoi Festival offers a chance for international golfers to experience a chain of high-class courses, special culinary identities, and the professionalism of the host. As the tournament is held in the autumn, it is an optimal time for tourists who want to explore Vietnam through golf, and enjoy the most beautiful and romantic weather that Hanoi can provide.
One golfer, American David Elliott, said excitedly, “I have played golf in Hanoi for eight years and have many friends who play golf here. Some of them recommended me to play golf at Kings Course and this is part of the reason I participated in the tournament. I am really impressed with the festival’s professional organization, beautiful golf course, and also the great weather. I think it will be a great experience here.”
