BRG Open Golf Championship Danang 2022 will bring a world-class golf experience to Vietnamese golf fans.
1. This is the first time an event of the Asian Development Tour come to Vietnam
In the past, Vietnam has been the destination of many major golf tournaments under the Asian Tour system. These include tournaments such as the Carlsberg Masters 2004 and 2005 or the Ho Tram Open 2015, the event with the participation of the world's top golfers such as Robert Rock, Darren Clarke, Sergio Garcia, Geoff Ogilvy, Thomas Bjorn. However, since then, there have not been any more international tournaments.
BRG Open Golf Championship Danang 2022 will be a tournament to help Vietnamese golf fans satisfy their thirst for world-class golf experiences. This is also the first time that a tournament under the Asian Development Tour system has chosen the "S-shaped country as a stopover". This is a great honor and also the result of the unremitting efforts, as well as the cooperation of the whole community in developing golf in Vietnam.
2. BRG Danang Golf Resort is going to be a tough pill to swallow for golfers
For the first time, the BRG Open Golf Championship Danang 2022 will take place on the Nicklaus Course of the BRG Danang Golf Resort. Designed by Nicklaus Design, the course features the typical embankment design of golf courses in Florida, USA, with extremely complex terrain on the green.
The greens here are designed to make it difficult to read. In addition, they always tend to slope outward on all four sides, making the approaching shot even more tricky. It is expected that the green speed will be adjusted by the referees to 10 to 10.5 feet during the official competition days.
Also, the area around the green will also cause golfers a lot of trouble. The grass growing against the green will make golfers’ club get “stuck” easily, making shots more difficult to control.
At the tournament, Nicklaus course will be adjusted from Par 73 to Par 72 with a total length of 7,363 yards, in which the 10th hole is usually a Par 5 hole will be adjusted to a Par 4 hole with a length of 502 yards.
