Jeongsan Vina Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of South Korea’s Taekwang
Group, on Sunday opened the Taekwang Jeongsan Country Club golf course in Nhon
Trach District, Dong Nai Province.
The 18-hole course features high-grade entertainment, resort and service
facilities. According to the project owner, players can come to the golf course
by road or water from Bach Dang Wharf in HCMC, which takes 30 minutes.
The course designed by the U.S.-based Golf Plan Company is developed on an
84-hectare area, consisting of resort, swimming pool and tennis court. The total
cost of the project is US$44 million.
This is the third golf course put into operation in Dong Nai. The other two are
Long Thanh and Song May golf courses located in Trang Bom Town.
It is also the second South Korean-invested golf course in the southern region,
after Twin Doves in Binh Duong.
Phan Thi My Thanh, vice chairwoman of the Dong Nai government, said the golf
course is a component of Dai Phuoc Eco-Tourism and Urban Area developed by
Development Investment Construction Corp. (DIC) in the province. The project
covering 464.5 hectares and costing over VND7.2 trillion is the biggest
satellite urban project, east of HCMC.
Apart from the Taekwang Jeongsan golf course, DIC will invite investors for
other components of the Dai Phuoc project.
