A German consultancy has suggested the development of six new golf courses which cover a combined area of over 880 hectares of land in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam in a zoning plan for the 2021-30 period.

In Xuan Loc District, a 212-hectare golf course would be built in Xuan Hung Commune and a 100-hectare facility is expected to be erected near a residential, sports, and resort complex in the northwestern part of Mount Chua Chan, according to Roland Berger, a Munich-based management consultancy.

The remaining four golf courses would be located in Cam My District, Thong Nhat District, Vinh Cuu District, and Long Khanh City, covering 180 hectares, 174 hectares, 155 hectares, and 60 hectares in area, respectively.

Another golf course would span 180 hectares in Xuan Duong Commune of Cam My District.

In May, the provincial Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism in coordination with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment and the Department of Planning and Investment formed a delegation to examine these locations and study the necessity and feasibility of the proposed projects, said a local official.

Subsequently, the Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism recommended that the provincial administration and the Department of Planning and Investment add the six locations to the province’s zoning plan.

As per the proposal, five golf courses would be built between now and 2030, while the 212-hectare facility in Xuan Hung Commune would be developed after 2030.

Roland Berger elaborated that Dong Nai boasts the largest number of industrial parks in Vietnam.

In the near future, Vietnam's extensive Long Thanh International Airport project in Dong Nai will be completed, alongside many urban and service zone developments that are expected to attract more domestic and international employees, specialists, and engineers to the southern province.

The consulting agency concluded that it would be a right move if the province earmarks landbanks for developing golf courses and offering commercial and tourism-related services.

Roland Berger requested that the provincial planning council consider and give the green light to its proposal.

The Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism said that it approved the six suggested locations in principle, noting that the consulting unit should pay much more heed to the sites near water sources or waste treatment facilities.

For example, the suggested site in Long Khanh City is next to the Cau Dau Lake, which provides water for agricultural production and daily activities.

The site in Thong Nhat District is adjacent to a waste treatment facility.

The department underlined the need to create environmental impact assessment reports after these sites are added to the province’s zoning plan, so as to ensure water sources will not be affected by the operations of golf courses.

Vo Tan Duc, acting chairman of the provincial administration, assigned the department to assess the demand for golf courses in the area.

He agreed to include the two locations in Cam My and Xuan Loc in the zoning plan, and instructed relevant agencies to study their feasibility and assess potential environmental impacts on the remaining four sites.

Dong Nai is currently home to three golf courses spanning nearly 700 hectares in Bien Hoa City, Trang Bom District, and Nhon Trach District.

These golf courses also offer premium homes and hospitality services.
