We have just spent two wonderful months at the Montgomerie Links Golf Club and Villas. We visited this area in 2011 and played golf at Montgomerie Links at which time they were building the villas. We discussed coming back here and staying for a period of time to enjoy the golf courses and surrounding area. Apart from the golf the other major attraction in this area is the food as you will have seen from my previous blog.
The first week we were here our friends from Nelson, Rod, Janine, Hunter and Zoe joined us which was lots of fun – we re discovered and they discovered the area together. We then had three weeks on our own to hone our golf skills before Paul and Laura joined us. We spent an action packed 12 days with them which was so much fun and a very special family time.
We then had another three weeks on our own where we continued to enjoy the golf course and the team at Montgomerie Links. All the staff here are so friendly and there was no shortage of a xin chào or a good morning along with a friendly wave as we walked around the resort. We were spoilt with gifts in our last week – a nice bracelet from Nga in the restaurant as well as a marble plate from the Food & Beverage Team.
We organised to have our two favourite caddies, Hoa and Tinh join us for our last round on Wednesday and they also presented us with a bracelet each. I then received a nice bag and Steve a golf shirt from the management team.

The Lovely Staff
Van and Hang our Villa Reception superstars. These two made sure we had everything we needed and made sure everything in the Villa was spot on. A special mention to Van who stayed until 9pm the night we arrived trying to track our lost luggage down. Van & Hang also personally delivered us to the airport the day we left so they could wave goodbye.
The Golf Reception Team – these girls were at work every morning at 5.15am setting up ready to greet and check the golfers in as they came to tee off. They organised all our tee times and were always ready with a friendly wave or hello when we saw them. Steve, who has never done a ‘selfie’ in his life was quite excited to be taking a selfie with these girls.
The Food & Beverage Team (Nga, Suong, No and Thuy) were always a pleasure to deal with and we enjoyed a chat every morning over breakfast. Once they sussed out our little idiosyncrasies re our breakfast requests I am sure we were the easiest breakfast guests ever : )
