The Imperial Lake View Resort & Golf Club offers 36 holes of golf in Hua Hin. The golf course is a favorite with both residents and visitors to the area and is situated a bit inland amongst small farms & fruit orchids on a large parkland parcel. For many golfers this is the most scenic and pleasant golf course in Hua Hin.
The Imperial Lake View original 18 hole A-B course features small streams and a large lake dividing the course in two. This, together with mature trees, blind shots to some greens, undulating fairways and several doglegs, tests the skills of the low handicapper. The long par 3, 14th hole is particularly tricky and features a tee box on a small island and the green at another island 210 yards away - all surrounded by water. There are a number of easy par holes making the course a balanced test of golf also for higher handicappers
The desert course (course C) is uniquely designed to be different in so many ways that each shot must be carefully planned. Mixing these nine holes with those from the main course provides most with an extremely fulfilling round of golf. The Lake View links course (course D) opened in late 2006, adding a further nine holes to the existing three courses. The course plays over a relatively open area with few trees between the holes, thus earning its links name.
The clubhouse at Lake View is basic and offers pleasant ambience and good cuisine. Spacious changing facilities, a grass driving range and short game practice areas are available for all golfers. The clubhouse also features a pool with golf course view and spa. An on-site 3-star golf resort is a popular option for golf groups from Asia and domestic tourists. However, it is located too far from town making it difficult for Hua Hin golf holidaymakers to enjoy any of the in-town Hua Hin restaurants and night life.
