You can enjoy a round of golf surrounded by the cool hills or tea plantations or alternatively head down to the fringes of the South China Sea in this country of over 200 courses. Top names like Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Greg Norman and Max Wexler have all brought out the best features of the local environment whilst incorporating their own unique styles and features when designing golf courses in Malaysia.

Certainly Laos is a junior partner in terms of the Asian region’s golf offerings but with recent investment in courses, management and their service ethic, Laos has some surprises in store for those wishing to explore golf further afield. Facilities and amenities are modern and clubs like Luang Prabang are comparable with other championship courses such as Thailand’s Siam Country Club yet different in character. Added to which, the Unesco Heritage City of Luang Prabang, on the banks of the Mekong, is a wonderful place to explore and Laos’ foremost tourist showpiece.
This isn’t the only location for Laos golf, also seek out the capital Vientiane which not only is a base that offers great cuisine courtesy of its historical French connections but also boasts 2 other fine tracks, Lao Country Club and Long Thanh Golf Club. Combining golf in Laos with that of its neighbour Thailand might be the ultimate holiday.
