Lakewood Links Golf Course is the second project of its kind promoted by Lakewood Land Co., Ltd. The 7,102-yd championship standard par-72 course has 10 par-4s and four each of par-5s and par-3s. The flagship, Lakewood Country Club, situated next door, is home to the finest 27-hole world-class golf course designed by J. Michael Poellot of USA. Set in a serene and tranquil countryside close to Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bang Chalong district off Bangna-Trad Highway (KM 18), this 18-hole paradise has all the prerequisites to become the city’s hottest destination for four hours of excitement and fun-filled golf, spiced with a buffet of challenges, risks, surprises and rewards! Just a half-hour drive from downtown Bangkok, Lakewood Links Golf Course is located on Wat Sriwaree Noi Road, 4.2 km off the highway and is. It’s been aptly named ‘Lakewood Links’ since its terrain reminds one of a ‘linksland’ characterised by undulating sandy grounds dotted with bushy dunes and water bodies.
The 18-hole, 7102-yard layout boasts of quite a few elevated tees, rolling fairways separated by several big and small lakes and generously large greens many of which are undulating and multi-tiered. Water comes into play on many holes, while those with narrow fairways and elevated greens demand precision shot-making and pose significant challenges for high handicappers. Both the greens sit side by side in the middle of a large lake and are connected to the land through timber bridges. The greens appear as if they have been chiseled to shape on a landmass bordered by sand and surrounded by water. A peculiar character of the two holes is that they share the same black tees. With ‘sea-creature’ greens, these truly special holes create an illusion that Lakewood Links Golf Course is close to the ocean! This strange combination of two holes sharing the same back tees and with greens shaped like sea creatures cannot be found anywhere in Thailand or, perhaps, in the entire world, but Lakewood Links!
