Lao Country Club Description:
(older walking course in good condition)
The Lao Country Club is kept in good shape thanks to the significant amount of refurbishment that it underwent in 2014. A good job has indeed been done. Previously referred to as the Youth Garden Golf Course, the Lao Country Club was upgraded to an impressive resort that meets even the highest of standards. It is among the oldest golf properties Laos boasts of ever having had.

Fairways undulate gently, with level lies mostly that render it easy to walk on. It boasts of an impressive 35’ elevation change, in between the highest and lowest property ground. Water is everywhere on this course and creates a distraction if not careful. A hint of how the day will end easily comes at the first hole. Decorative water envelopes tee boxes on both left and right sides as water run nearly the full 349 yards from back tee to just shy of the green. At the final 75 yards to the green, there is lateral water to the right, so be keen not to get wet. This introduction is strategic since it is characteristic how the rest of the course design. Specific teeing grounds do have front water pools, though this is more of a psychological and cosmetic than strategic barrier as the distance of carrying hazards is rather modest.

Fairways are somewhat generous, judging from the tees, and there are well-placed bunkers within landing areas. Greens are cut to an immaculate degree which facilitates players to achieve comfortable speed during play, with no non-native grasses encroaching.
