Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club is the latest addition to a growing number of golf courses in Hanoi and the north of Vietnam.
Located at the Van Son Lake area of Hanoi Vietnam, Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club is made up of two 18-hole PGA standard courses. The Sky Course is open for play and the Lake Course is under construction. The entire project is baked by Korean investors with golf course design by Robert Painter (Kingsbarns Golf Links, UK) and Ronald Leck (Sky 72 Golf Club, Korea).
The Sky Course is routes over rolling hills with many holes being carved out of hillsides. Scenic views overlooking the surrounding farmland can be had from the club house 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 Sky 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.
After a round, golfers can enjoy a nice Vietnamese meal and cold beer at the club house restaurant which looks out over this Vietnam golf course.
