The Lao Country Club is now in excellent shape thanks to the significant amount of refurbishment that it has undergone lately. 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.
You can find here fairways which 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 quite an interesting distraction, which could derail your shot if not careful. Take care to discipline yourself and focus your attention. Your hint of how your shot will end easily comes at the first hole. Decorative water envelopes tee boxes on both left and right sides as water runs nearly the full 349 yards from back tee to just shy of the green. At the terminal 75 yards to green, there is lateral water to the right, so be keen not to soak in your shot. This introduction is strategic since it makes you aware of how the rest of the course has been designed. Certain teeing grounds do have front water pools, though this is more of a psychological and cosmetic than strategic barrier as 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 mowed to an immaculate degree which facilitates players to achieve comfortable speed during play, with no foreign grasses encroaching.
