Golfing in Dalat has been a tradition since 1922 when the first course in Indochina was built at the Dalat Palace Golf Club. Gently crafted into the rolling hills of Dalat and overlooking the majestic Xuan Huong Lake, the course weaves its way through stately pine trees to over sized and delicately manicured bent grass greens.
