Lae Golf Club: Laid out on a former colonial plantation and WW2 American army camp, the Lae golf course includes several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined parkland layout is dotted with native and tropical vegetation and will provide an enjoyable test for most facets of your game.

The predominantly straightaway holes play through relatively tight tree-lined fairways. Although many fairways are bunkerless, it's a different matter around the relatively small well-defended greens. Worth visiting if you are in the area.
