Lakeview Golf Club
A beautifully located and naturally routed lakeside golf course
Lakeview Golf Club was completed in 2005 and is already regarded as one of the most popular golf courses in the region. It is undoubtedly one of Faldo Design’s most successful Asian projects to date.
The setting for our project near Kunming is visually very stunning. The beautiful Xishan Mountain dominates the skyline and, as the Club’s name implies, our layout hugs the shores of the stunning Dianchi Lake. It has been an inspirational place to work and I’m certain that players will also be inspired to produce their very best golf. In terms of the design, we’ve been very sympathetic to the surroundings, with gently rolling fairways and striking bunkers that patrol the fairways and guard the greens. This is a course that rewards the ‘thinking golfer’ and I’m sure that players of all abilities will find it both challenging and interesting. More than anything, I hope that it will prove to be a fair and extremely playable golfing experience.
