The Tan Son Nhat Golf Course covers over 132ha, including 111ha for a 36-hole golf course, a 14.7ha lake, a 3ha golf club, and a 2.6ha golf driving range. According to Tan Binh District authorities, the project also includes hotels and restaurants covering nearly 7ha, 3ha for schools, 9.7ha for villas and apartments for lease, and 7.8ha for roads. All these facilities is located within the 820ha Tan Son Nhat Airport area which is managed by the Defence Ministry.
Tan Son Nhat golf course would meet the needs of sports and entertainment and luxury resorts of the city residents and international visitors to build HCM City to become attractive destination in the new millennium while contributing to create aesthetic part of the country as well as to utilize land efficiency
Tran Van Tinh, deputy chairman of Long Bien Investment JSC, developer of the Tan Son Nhat Golf Course Project, said the project was initiated in 2006 and approved by Government a year later. Tinh told the Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the $300 million investment in this golf course aims to effectively exploit the plot of land in a prime location that has been “left unoccupied for several years”.
To better serve golf players, the golf course must provide supporting services, including accommodation and entertainment services. Therefore, the area includes 54 villas, 1,000 apartments and a five-star hotel, “all for lease, not for sale,” stated Tinh. Schools to be built in the area will admit not only tenants of the project but also residents in surrounding areas.
In addition to the inner roads, the Long Bien JSC has proposed the construction of two new roads. One, 3km long, will run parallel to Quang Trung Street and link the Truong Son Intersection in Tan Binh District with Tan Son Street in Go Vap District; and the other, 500m long, will connect the Tan Son and Pham Van Bach streets.The new roads will help ease traffic pressure on Quang Trung Street.
