Sir Nick Faldo has revealed his latest golf course design with a new peninsula layout near Hanoi, Vietnam. Thanh Lanh Golf Club (pictured above) will be wowing golfers with lakeside views and mountain horizons.
The setting is celebrated from all angles of the design. The site’s returning nines routing reimagine the peninsula layout and inviting the landscape into the playing experience across the holes.
The design harnesses the natural context of the course and responds to it through the detailing of features. Maybe most notable is the use of the bunker shaping to mirror the overlooking mountain skyline.
Completion this summer
The six-time Major Champion, and World Golf Hall of Famer, is set to complete work on the new 18-hole course in Vinh Phuc Province near Hanoi in the summer of 2021.
Sir Nick Faldo commented:
“This is a special site and presents us with an opportunity to create a memorable, world-class golf course. In addition to 9 lakeside holes, our design features spectacular mountain and lake views from all 18 holes. We are also very fortunate to be working with a client who shares the same vision as we do in terms of incorporating the existing natural landscape into a high-quality strategic golf course and development.”
The course will measure at over 7,000 yards and present a strategic challenge using preserved local features. Such as natural streams and relief, to create interest and shot variation around all 18-holes. However, with five sets of tees, the design offers an inviting playing experience for all golfing abilities with generous tee shots and downhill run offs supporting shorter hitters.
