Located 45 kilometers from central Hanoi, Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club is made up of two contrasting 18-hole courses – the Sky Course and the Lake Course. Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club was awarded in 2015 as both the best championship course in Vietnam and the 5th best course in Vietnam. This was the only Hanoi golf club to receive such notoriety. Both courses were designed by Korean architect, Mr. Ahn Moon Hwan of Bori Golf Design.
The Lake Course provides members with championship level golf and plays up-and-down through a series of lakes with mountains as backdrops. Most holes are routed over rolling hills. Scenic views overlooking the surrounding farmland can be had from the clubhouse and from many points on the course itself. Fairways and greens are undulated and follow the hilly contours of the area. The course is long and challenging as it plays to 7,265 yards from the tips.
Long and accurate drives are required to reach several lengthy uphill par-4 holes in regulation. Straying off the fairway will result in difficult lies in the thick rough or worse as large trees and severe drop off areas flank most holes. Moreover, large multi-tier greens guarded by steep greenside bunker complexes are also found on many of the Lake Course holes. At least to put things in perspective, most fairways are wide enough to accept most off-center hits and the ball sits up very well on the lush Paspalum grass.
The public assessable Sky Course is surrounded mainly by natural Vietnamese jungle and is suitable for golfers of all abilities. Fairways and green complexes are more generous and errant shots are not punished so severely.
Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club is managed by IMG which helps keep course conditions, facilities, and operations well-running throughout the year. After a round, golfers can enjoy mainly Korean food at the clubhouse restaurant which looks out over the golf course.
