The event, which is set to wrap up on Friday, is jointly hosted by the Ho Chi Minh Department of Tourism and the Vietnam Golf Association.
The festival features the Cup Ping Vietnam 2023 tournament, which attracts some 1,000 golfers.
The participating golfers are entrepreneurs from localities across the southern region.
The golf tournament is aimed at contributing to popularizing the city’s tourism products and services among local and international golf communities.
According to the municipal Department of Tourism, Ho Chi Minh City made great strides in tourism post-COVID-19, fueling the city’s socio-economic recovery and growth.
Apart from tourism promotion activities, the city is focusing on launching new products to diversify tourism services, as well as offer new experiences to tourists.
Notably, the city is moving toward developing golf tourism based on the potential of its two major golf courses, Tan Son Nhat and Thu Duc.
Vietnam has over 100 golf courses. In 2019 and 2022, the Southeast Asian country was picked as the world’s best golf destination by the World Golf Awards, local media reported.
