Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club is set to become one of Asia’s premier lifestyle destinations. With 36 holes of championship golf and resort style facilities being planned, the club offers two very contrasting 18-hole PGA-standard courses: Sky Course and Lake Course.
The members-only Lake Course provides a championship test of golf and promises to become one of the region’s finest. The more accessible Sky Course is open to the public and can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels.
Around 170km south of Hanoi you will find the FLC Samson Golf Links, part of the 450-hectare Samson Beach and Golf Resort, one of the most expansive resorts in the region.
The beach side location is typical of the links style golf courses that typify the British Isles.
A backdrop of the South China Sea, the River Ma and the sand dunes of the Sam Son Beach provide golfers with some truly amazing views as they plot their way around the 7200-yard, par 72 18-hole course.
Another project headed by Nicklaus design, the course screams quality from arrival at the stunning, opulent clubhouse, which provides more than any golfer could ever require from a clubhouse.
It is a testament to the international acclaim and love of the British links that this course screams traditional links.
Water hazards wrapped with sleeper clad walls, create an aesthetically pleasing break to the traditional links feel.
Typically, large undulating greens sit at the end of beautiful, rolling fairways that are a delight to play from and a credit to the maintenance teams that work hard to maintain the incredible standards across the resort.
At 7242-yards this championship course will provide a stern challenge to any golfer.
Add to this the unpredictable coastal winds and you have a sublime golf course that will play differently each and every time you visit.
The clubhouse is modern, state-of-the art and provides golfers with all the amenities they need from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave.
Large, spacious locker rooms enjoy air conditioning and have a 5* hotel feel to them, whilst the pro-shop is well-stocked and supplies a range of golf equipment.
An ever-growing trend in Vietnamese golf is the on-course rest spots, which provide respite from the weather and the drain of playing golf on tough courses.
The extensive practice facilities lend themselves to be used by the visiting and local golfer. A large driving range, chipping, bunker and putting areas really enhance the appeal of the Samson Links Resort and it is an absolute must visit resort in the area.
