Blue Canyon Country Club : Lake Course

The eagerly awaited Lakes Course opened its doors to members and their guests for the first time on 14th of February, 1999. Over 100 golfers took the opportunity to test this, the latest addition to Blue Canyon, and indeed found it to be a formidable test of golf. Probably the most talked about hole was the 471 yard par 4, 18th, with its ever present long carry over a canyon to a narrow green.
Blue Canyon now has two championship courses… 36 challenging holes with a choice of five tees on each… unlimited pleasure.

Blessed with rare, natural landscape, the concept of creating a world standard championship golf course has been achieved with both our courses – All golfers are challenged. Our two courses are named The Canyon Course and The Lakes Course.

Two large lakes dominate this former tin mine and rubber plantation, and Japanese architect, Kato, wisely incorporated these in the skilful routing of the course.

Lake Courses Overview
The Lakes course has been renovated to cater for buggies, which are now compulsorily. Whatever length you hit the ball and whatever standard of golfer you are, you will be able to enjoy hitting to the beautifully manicured greens throughout the golf course on every hole.
From the championship (black) tees, target driving areas have been set at 270 yards to accommodate today's longer hitting professionals (the standard for course design has generally been considered 250 yards until recent years). With this in mind the Lakes Course can be used as a tournament venue with the confidence that a challenge will meet even the best players in the world.

Lake Courses Guide

Established in 1999, the Lakes Course has water hazards coming to play on 17 out of 18 holes. The course is a mixture of water-filled canyons created by open cast mining with its natural land flow left relatively unchanged. Its front 9 holes run through a landscape of lakes and original canyons, whilst the back 9 weaves around more scenic lakes and soft whispering woodlands of rubber trees.

Architect Yoshikazu Kato has masterfully provided an inspiring alternative to Blue Canyon's myriad of golfing standards. From the championship tees, this is a 7,129-yard challenge with target-driving areas set at 270 yards to accommodate today's long hitting professionals. . With a range of five sets of tees to choose from, it is capable of challenging the best players in the world, although even modest players can enjoy this course with wide fairways and generous greens.

The greens are much wider than Canyon Course; in fact the Lakes Course boasts some of the largest greens in Asia. Hole 6 occupies 1,115 sq.m. and Hole 2 green is 1,040 sq.m. For Lakes Course, it is often easy to drive to the green but the real test of golfing mettle will be your putting skills to hole them.

The signature hole:
Hole 18 is also well known as one of Asia's best finishing hole in golf. It gives golfers a choice to end their final stroke onto the green from two platforms. A lone tree separates two totally differnt fairway options. The vegetation fringed waterfilled canyon is on the right and expands against fairway. The high left side allow a view of a small green between high rust tinted canyon walls, steep grassed mounds and a big water filled canyon. The right side of fairway allows longer drive, but the partly hidden view of the green psychologically takes back advantage. Lakes Course Hole 18 is ranked as one of the top best par-four in Asia by Asian Golf Monthly 2004.

Hole 1

Although the landing area is very wide, the ideal drive is hit as close as possible to the two large fairway bunkers guarding the left side of the fairways. This will allow a straight shot into a very long green, with water to the right of and behind the green. "Safer" drives on the right side of the fairway will bring the water hazard guarding the green into play.

Hole 2

The pin position on the huge (57 yards wide) green can change this hole from a very benign par 3 to a devilishly difficult one. A large variation of tee positions also creates various distances of water carry.

Hole 3

Similar in topography to the Canyon Course's signature 13 th , this hole features an even more intimidating tee shot, which must carry a huge water filled canyon, or thread a narrow gap between the two canyons guarding this fairway. The green is also perched on the canyon edge, creating the need for very accurate and prudent approach play.

Blue 563 yards

Hole 4

A very wide fairway gives the golfer some strategic choice on the tee shot. The safer "high road" to the left leaves a longer second shot over another sheer-sided canyon. The shorter "low road" to the right flirts with the same canyon, but rewards a good drive with a shorter second shot.

Hole 5

Following two left to right doglegs holes, the fifth hole quickly tests the player who can't control his hook. Another precipitous canyon sits from the corner of the dog leg to the side of the green. Your choice is to play safe with a long iron off the tee or to shape the ball around the canyon enabling a short iron approach. Over-hit second shots find a steep drop behind the green, further rewarding a courageous tee shot.

Hole 6

Water greets errant tee shots on the left and the right side of this shortish downhill par 4. An interesting feature is the " Pine Valley " style short and long fairway "islands" separated by a waste area. The successful risk taker off the tee will be looking for a birdie. But a strongly sloping back to front green requires accurate approach play from the more conservative player.

Blue 563 yards

Hole 7

Accurate drives will hug the canyon edge on the left of the fairway at this strong right to left par 4. The second shot will have to cross the canyon edge to an elevated green. Golfers playing from the safe right side must be wary of three fiendishly placed greenside bunkers.

Hole 8

The most picturesque par 3 on the golf course. High teeing areas give a great view of this large green, beautifully framed by water and a bunker short and left and another bunker behind. Flowering Allamandas complete the backdrop. The green is subtly shaped to give very challenging tournament pin positions.

Hole 9

The first of the par 5's. A straight forward drive gives the opportunity to "open up the shoulders". Only the longest hitters can
consider taking on the waste area on the second shot to get home in two. Most will need a well placed second shot to avoid a large bunker at the left end of the dog leg and a small stand of trees on the right. Three good shots will be needed for a birdie chance.

Hole 10

Another par 5, but this time right to left all the way. The drive has a beautifully contoured landing area over water and framed by bunkers on the left. Long, well-placed drives down the right side of the featuring will allow for a clear second shot over a rough valley. Only right to left second shots here will leave a short pitch to a raised green and a genuine birdie chance.

Hole 11

One of the highest points on the course the teeing areas afford a lovely view of this short par 4, with the green tucked to the right in the rubber trees, protected behind by a sharp slope into water. A powerfully hit left to right drive may find the front of the green. If you don't get it right, your path to the green will be blocked and you may not find the green in two! A shorter accurate tee shot to the left over the rough hollow may be the smart choice..

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards

Hole 12

The shortest par 3 at Blue Canyon . The green is virtually on an island, with water just short left, and long right of the putting surface. Seeing a well struck short to medium iron from the elevated tee, out of a chute of trees, is one of the most enjoyable shots on the course. But poor club selection could yield a 3-putt bogey or worse, on this large green.

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

 

 

Hole 13

Normally a par 5 for regular play, today's professionals will find this a two shot hole. A large tree stands in the fairway's center. Accurate drives will pass left of it leaving an easier second shot. Drives to the right leave a choice of a safe second or a long shot over water to a well-guarded green.

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

 

 

Hole 14

The start of the difficult finishing stretch. This long uphill par 4 is becoming a very demanding tee shot as the trees mature. Drives must find the left half of a "hogback" fairway or they are kicked behind a Padauk tree guarding the right hand dogleg. The second shot requires control of distance to a raised green, guarded front left by a cavernous bunker. Putts from "over safe" second shots behind the hole will be extremely fast.

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

 

 

Hole 15

From the championship tee, this slightly left and right par 5 descends the full 22 meters of elevation change on the course. A wide fairway begs you to let rip from the tee; which you will have to do to be able to carry the water on the second shot. Beware, as there is also water close behind the green. This hole presents a definite birdie chance for the long hitter.

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

 

 

Hole 16

Cautious drivers will steer clear of three interestingly shaped bunkers on the corner of this dog leg left. However, staying too far right will result in a long iron to this large green and three putts will be more likely.

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

 

 

Hole 17

This is the first and only hole with no water in play. However, the severe undulations of this unusual par 3 level green more than compensate. Again, it is a refreshingly moderate par three in length, where good club selection and accurate execution will avoid very testing putting conditions.

 

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

 

 

Hole 18

From the championship tee, perhaps the most difficult natural par 4 finishing hole in golf! A single tree separates fairway options. The high left side allows a beautiful view of a small green slotted healthy between high rust tinted canyon walls, step grassed mounds and a vegetation fringed water filled canyon. A single bunker provides "relief" for slightly pulled second shots. The right side of the fairway allows longer drives, but the partly hidden view of the green psychologically takes back the advantage. Over safe long second shots find rough slopes, awkward to chip from. There is nowhere to hide on one of golf's most testing holes.
