Lake Course Summary & Design Features

Blue Canyon Country Club Courses

Following the success of the challenging Canyon Course, the Lakes Course opened in 1999, offering a whole new challenge to the game of golf with water hazards on 17 out of 18 holes. It is a mixture of water-filled canyons created by open cast mining with its natural land flow left relatively unchanged.

The Lakes Course has been designed to cater for a broader range of golfers with Silver Tees being added between Red and White Tees. With Blue and Black Tees, a total of five sets of Tees offer a complete golfing experience, for all golfers' standards from the Championship Tees, target driving areas are set at 270 yards to accommodate today's long hitters, enabling Lakes Course to be the venue for world class tournaments; with the confidence that the challenge will meet the very best golfers from around the world.

Its front 9 holes run through a landscape of lakes and natural canyons, whilst the back 9 weaves its way through scenic lakes and soft whispering woodlands of rubber trees. Gentle winds at 10mph constantly add a challenging dimension to any game.

Lakes Course: Top Holes

Hole 4
Requires nerves of steel. The hardest hole on the course, this par four offers up a wide fairway, then doglegs into a maze of trees and foliage, with a huge canyon yawning in front of an elevated green.

Hole 18
gives players the choice of going left or right of a tree on the crest of the fairway. Go left and you face an awesome shot over canyon country.

The right-hand option provides more fairway but a severe uphill second shot is required to the small, elevated green. A wonderful par four.
