Dear Members & Guests,

                                 Chuc Mung Nam Moi 2013, All the best wishes to all our Members & Guests into 2013, A big thanks to everyone for supporting the club in 2012, and wishing everyone a happy & safe Tet holiday with family & friends.

 

The club has had a successful 2012 with your support, so we thank everyone for that. It has been a very busy year for the operation, but we still managed to do many on course renovations to the golf course in 2012 including moving & re-shaping many bunkers for improved look and to test your skills along with grass changes and overall conditioning. I think we can all see the improvements to both the East & West course. We are also planning some further improvements in 2013, so keep an eye out for some further changes in the near future.

 

From an events side, 2013 we are planning some extra member tournaments; we are currently looking for sponsorship and partners for 2013 and we have some great advertising packages for sponsors, so an opportunity is there to partner with VGCC. Stay tuned for some announcement of future dates and information.

 

In December we had a magnificent Club Championship Tournament. Results are shown below and some photos have been posted to the website. Congratulations to all the Winners!!

REVIEW OF THE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP 2012

The Championships were held over 36 holes, with 304 golfers teeing off to compete for a wonderful array of prizes and trophies. With Green speeds reaching 12.2 (West), and 11.7(East), difficult pin placements and overall firm fast conditions, there were some excellent scores, and overall speed of play was quite good considering the size of the field, and tough conditions. A Big thanks to all the sponsors and of course congratulations to all the winners in 2012.

Funny Story of the month 

Some of our reciprocal membership agreements have certain limits to amount of play during each year.

VGCC and Tam Dao have such as arrangement & 6 times is the limit per year when receiving a special rate. 

One day, a Tam Dao Golf club member checked in at VGCC front desk with a young lady who’s name we shall not mention.   

After looking for the Tam Dao’s member name in our list to check how many time he had played, the receptionist could not find his name at all, and wondered…..could this be his first time to play?

Receptionist - “Is this your first time Sir?”

The man replied calmly….

Tam Dao Member - “Oh Sister… my first time was a very long time ago”!!

ROUND OF THE YEAR 2012 

Congratulations to Mr Nguyen Ngoc Khoi on a fabulous round of golf on the West Course recently on the last day of 2012 ( Dec 31st )  Going back through the records, nobody can remember a lower round on the West course in many years… So we consider this a blue tee course record.

 

  • A round of 6 under par 66 ( par 72 )
  • 6 birdies and 12 pars
  • Birdied holes 1,2,5,8 on front side for a -4 (32)
  • Birdied holes 17,18 for a strong finish and a back 9 of -3 (34)
  • This recent good form has seen Mr Khoi’s handicap drop down to 1 for the month of Feb. New Handicap
