Lars Holden expert shared his views on the reason why golf is becoming a pervasive sport that is increasingly attracting to many participants.
The sport uses most tools.
A golf bag is full of nearly 20 sticks. The gold tool also tells a lot about the player, from the color of the uniform, the first covering the sticks, stick bags, kind of sticks that they used shows the player’s personality and the Vietnamese golfers in also followed this philosophy. For example, serious and strict players whose desire to achieve the best performance often use Titleist products, whereas wealthy people generally want to use Honma products to show their class. With so many types and brands of tools today, the golf becomes a great game for those who always love new things and the line of the new device.
No golf pitch are alike
The beauty of golf is that each golf pitch is different from the other and golfers can play in diverse landscape with spectacular scenery anywhere in the world. Vietnam also has all these places, In Hanoi you can play in the field of natural beauty such as Chi Linh and Kings Island, Da Nang has beautiful golf pitch on the coast and in Ho Chi Minh City you can play in the yard which designed in style resort and surrounded by commercial and residential areas. In other words, golf in Vietnam has a unique style that is attracting to many locals and foreign tourists.
The style is becoming very important in golf, and Vietnamese golfers are not different from golf enthusiasts in any other country. We are showed that more and more colors on the golf pitch as colored clothing, tools, shoes, hats, … and brands like Footjoy, Puma with their new products on exquisite style and diversed colors and golfers are always excited expecting the latest designs from professional designers.
The largest playing area
We can see that there has no sport that is played on a large area such as golf. In Vietnam, Golf Phoenix is the largest golf area with 54 holes located in a spectacular area. Many complex areas with 36 golf holes have been built, and many other golf projects are also being implemented. However the size is not the most important aspect of landscape, the field design is the most concern of most players. According to me, VinPearl golf pitch in Nha Trang is truly outstanding, each hole of golf you can observe the sea, which is the most unique thing that the others do not have and there is no better place to sit and enjoy “19th holes of golf” while enjoying the wonderful natural landscape there.
The sport game takes longest playing time
A round of 18 golf holes usually takes 5 to 6 hours, if the weather is cool, it does not matter what the weather, playing golf in more than 30 degrees celsius is also quite tired and this thing is also popular in Asia. However, playing golf with friends, enjoying the smiles of the caddies and walking around the fairway will make a long round of golf more enjoyable and comfortable.
It is difficult to predict who is the winner
In golf round, you always have the risk of breaking the game so it is dangerous to predict that you are the winner, many times a golfer stumbled at the final hole and lost what she/ he had thought it was achieved in the previous rounds. This rule happens to all golfers, for example, a few weeks before, I played with friends at Montgomerie Links Danang, I thought that I would certainly win and having a few copper to show off at dinner, but at 15th hole to have victory in my hand, I lost 14 tools and so “laugh” becomes “crying”.
The sport is most close to nature
Nothing is greater than playing golf in the early morning, the fresh air, the scenery and the natural flavor as well as the excitement of sport will make every golfer passionate despite how weather is it. In the north of Vietnam at this time of year, there’s always the dew on the ground and the first car wound on the lawn will make you really feel any affection. We can say that golf pitch is one of the most amazing places to start a new day.
In the life of a professional golfer, I have also witnessed many funny situations and bizarre happening on a golf pitch, since the car was pushed into the lake, sticks were lost in the grove, golfers reacted positively and negatively as they played well or not, golfers looked for ways to find their ball … have been interesting stories.
Golf is a very unique sport that is popular around the world so I saw a bright future and great of the Game in Vietnam. I really hope that all golfers in Vietnam, whether native or foreign, resident or tourist, will continue to learn to be able to enjoy golf, play with the right spirit and adhere to the law and always respect the other golfers around. A long way to ensure that all golfers can enjoy and come into what essence of the Game.
