The Luang Prabang Golf Club lies six kilometers to the west of the town center along Mekong River (Laos). It is surrounded by tropical mountains which are forested. Right from inception through construction and operation, the project has maintained an eco-friendly policy in every possible aspect.
The golf club, just like most other classic venues, takes visitors and players on a memorable journey. No parallel fairways exist, and golfers truly enjoy a sense of expedition while playing out on the front nine, a bit distant from the river. It is picturesque at par 72 and measuring 7,443 yards right from tips.
Luang Prabang golf has golf cart, but is not difficult to walk, as it consists of terrain contours whose slope is gentle to undulating. This track features fairway landing areas which are 35 to 40 yards in width and bordered by moderate semi-rough. Sand traps protect most greens, and fairway bunkers have been used liberally, which affects the placement of the tee shots.
Holes 14 to 17 run parallel with the river. The par three 17th plays right, along with the edge of this river, while par four, hole 18 plays uphill, 35’ over 375 yards right from tips to the medium-sized green sloping 7’ right to left, going across a putting surface of 75 feet. In general, the greens tend to be in-between medium and small in size. The elevation changes throughout the whole layout are mild, except for the 18th hole.
In conclusion, at 7,443 yards from the tips and par 72, it is a picturesque and liberating challenge you are certain to embrace, and afterward you’ll unwind in the congeniality of the comfortable clubhouse.
