The internationally-acclaimed design firm and Robert Trent Jones, Jr.,its Chairman and Master Architect, is recognized as one of the industry’s most prominent architectural firms, and has been at the heart of some of world golf’s most treasured properties. During his recent site visit to Hoiana to survey progress, Jones was adamant about the potential of his newest partnership just south of one of the world’s best-loved tourism destinations. He said:

“This property is the most perfect canvas. Alongsidethe beautiful coastal terrain, we have been given the ability to shape a design befitting this special region and magnificent new destination. To have a golf course in such close proximity to such a place as Hoi An makes this extra special.”

With Hoiana Shores Golf Club scheduled to open in mid-2019, the ownership group, Hoi An South Development, is confident that their masterplan will have a significant impact at national and international levels.

The new destination, neighbouring the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hoi An, will be home to a selection of luxury hotels, entertainment outlets, residential communities, retail complexes, as well as the world-class golf club, and is earmarked to become a major attraction for tourists globally.

RTJ II was selected as the golf course design firm following a comprehensive tender process.

“The decision to partner with RTJ II was centred around the ownership group’s desire for a distinct and authentic design, emblematic of where we are situated,” said Ben Styles, Vice President Golf & Residential Hoiana Shores Golf Club, Vietnam.
