Australian PGA professional and long-time Asian golf club executive, Tim Haddon, has been appointed General Manager of Sky Lake Golf Resort and Golf Club near Hanoi, Vietnam.

Previously general manager of Laguna Lang Co Golf Club near Danang, Tim Haddon’s appointment follows the opening in November 2014 of Sky Lake’s second 18-holes named the Sky Course. The resort’s Lake Course opened in late 2012.

Tim Haddon, who has also worked in senior golf management positions in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, aims to position Sky Lake as an international brand with service and quality standards that make the twin courses a “must-play” golf experience for visitors to Hanoi.

“As a destination, Hanoi stands out from other parts of Vietnam,” he said. “Every aspect of daily life, architecture and history are apparent in the city. It is where Vietnam’s true culture lies. For golfers, Sky Lake also offers a unique experience, taking advantage of the environment and championship appeal to create a wonderful, world-class golf experience. At some stage we hope to host a professional tour event.”

Weaving around Van Son Lake and offering views of the surrounding countryside, Sky Lake’s 7887-yard Lake course and new Sky Course were both designed by Korean golf course architect, Ahn Moon Hwan.

The Sky Course’s signature 15th hole soars above the surrounding countryside and has been named Dien Bien Phu after the pivotal highlands battle been French and Vietnamese forces in 1954 that resulted in France’s withdrawal from Indochina. Hanoi can be seen in the distance on a clear day.

“Playing this hole and reaching the green on the summit feels like a victory in itself,” Tim added.
