  • 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
