The Imperial Lake View Resort Golf Club is one of the most scenic golf courses in Hua Hin and is located in the foothills not far from Kaeng Krachan National Park so you’re guaranteed some beautiful scenery. Originally there were two 9-hole layouts:  Mountain A and Lake B; later two additional nines one is a desert style course which is unusual and the fourth is predictably based on Scottish links with lots of open space and is the easier of the four nines.

The main A to B courses at Imperial Lake View are bisected by a lake, and the streams that supplies the lake runs alongside many of the holes. There are some mature fully grown trees here with some challenging dog-legs and the odd blind shot, with holes that leave you wondering how to make par regardless of what your handicap is. These difficult holes are balanced by some easier ones so you at least you get some relief along the way.

The desert nine requires careful management and is arguably one of the best 9 holes in the area.  The short 4th for example will test your skill, it contains a stream running along the fairway and some rocky outcrops that could easily swallow your ball.
