Luang Prabang Golf Club

As you play, there are splendid views of the Mountain and Mekong River on hole 16th and 17th. The weather between November to February is ideal and cool for a great game of golf, temperatures between 15-25 degrees combine with the challenging courses with natural landscapes of limestone mountain/forests.

Luang Prabang Golf Club sits about 6 km west from the centre of town, situated along the south bank of the Mekong River surrounded by forested tropical mountains. Holes 14 through 17 parallel the riverbank with the par three 17th playing right along the river’s edge. Water is evident on nine of the 18 holes but really only comes into play on holes 3, 5, 7, and 14. The par four 18th hole plays uphill 35’ over 375 yards from the tips to a medium-sized green that slopes 7’ right to left across 75 feet of putting surface. The greens, in general, tend to be medium to small. Elevation changes across the entire layout are mild with hole 18 being the only exception and walking is not difficult, consisting of the level to gently undulating terrain contours.

Like most memorable and classic venues, Luang Prabang takes you on a journey. There are no parallel fairways so you really enjoy the sense of going somewhere as you play out away from the River on the front nine. On the back you play in getting gradually closer to the majestic Mekong over four of the last five holes until you are beside it for the last 190 yards at the par three 17th before you turn up the 18th fairway toward the clubhouse.
