  • 1. Golf courses in Vietnam By Takeyuki Koike
  • 2. Introduction  Nowadays golf is the best sport to attract tourists  Tour companies started to include golf tour in their plan (Swing)  Vietnam started the golf project (Hoang) - 144 courses by 2020  Economical benefit, but environmentally and socially unsustainable
  • 3. My point of view  The Vietnamese government should ban the golf course project. - Environmental problem - Social problem - Negative influence from mass of tourism
  • 4. Counter 1: Improve environment  Few cases  Some golf courses in undeveloped area (First)  Good golf course condition  One of the golf courses got the international environmental award (First)
  • 5. Argument 1: Destroying Environment  A lot of area – golf courses and hotels or other resorts  Cutting trees – increase CO2 ⇒global warming (Thanhnien)  Too many chemicals - keep the grass green ⇒Water pollution (Thanhnien)  Not good water clean process – poor people drink that water
  • 6. Counter 2 : Economic Benefit  Number of tourists increasing in previous years  Vietnam can host golf tournament (Thai Airways) ⇒attracts many people.  Tourists bring a lot of money into Vietnam (PM)  Not only golf courses, other resorts also gets money
  • 7. Argument 2 : Social Problem  Most of Vietnamese - farmers  Golf courses are built in rural areas, not urban areas  Loss of land which sustains the farmer’s life style  Poor people have to move because of golf course construction (Thanhnien)  Farmers are not well educated – difficult to get new jobs (Thanhnien)
  • 8. Argument 3 : Tourism Problem  Garbage disposal problem (Thailand) - Increasing tourists = increasing garbage  Water shortage (Thailand) - Too many tourists uses a lot of water  Inflation for the local population (Thailand) - Merchants set the price higher to get more money from tourists
  • 9. Conclusion & Solution  Although golf courses bring money into Vietnam, golf project should be banned because of environmental and social problems caused by golf course construction  No solution from the government  If the government stop the project, Vietnam can use project’s money to other way of develop the country such as reforming education - close rich - poor divide
