The 3-in-1 membership will allow players to enjoy the benefits from the three golf clubs rather than having to register separately for each club. By combining membership of all three clubs, players can save up to 90 percent in club fees

Annual membership is US$950, taxes included.

Benefits offered by the new membership are free green fees, priority reservation of a caddy and a free golf lesson. Members also enjoy a competitive discount on hotel bookings. In addition, the clubs offer green fee discounts for friends of existing members.

Membership is transferable with an extra charge of 10 percent.

T.W. Hughes, general manager of Dalat Palace and Ocean Dunes, said, "Besides the local benefits, the members can use their membership cards at all the member clubs of the international IMG Sport Club."

The Dalat Palace Golf Club, in the Central Highlands' city of Da Lat, and Ocean Dunes Golf Club, southeastern city of Phan Thiet, were both ranked first and second place in the national golf club rankings in 2003, 2005 and 2007 by the U.S. Golf Digest magazine.

In 2007, the two clubs appeared in the Asian Top Ten, as voted by the Asian Golf Monthly magazine.

The Montgomerie is the newest of the three courses and is located in the central costal city of Da Nang.
