Where2Golf says: 

Imperial Lake View Hotel & Golf Club (Desert/Links course): An excellent variety of enjoyable and challenging golfing challenges are provided by the 36-holes of championship golf here at Imperial Lake View. The Mountain and Lake-nines (A&B) are layouts with wonderfully tree-lined and contoured holes, set in a typically lush Thai environment. By contrast the Desert-nine (C) and Links-nine (D) are considerably more open, each having its own rather distinctive and separate character. Both follow a classic out-and-back links layout with the later holes passing alongside and in the opposite direction to the earlier holes. However, whereas the Desert-nine (1 thru 9) sports many Arizona-style desert features, the Links-nine (10 thru 18) possesses something of the open character of a British links-style course. Trees are lightly scattered on both nines, where quality of shot-making is at a premium, especially on the tightest and most demanding stretch, between the par-5 2nd and the par-5 8th. This tough stretch of Desert-nine holes is continually flanked by either water or OB on the left side. As in Arizona, many of the tee-boxes on this nine are surrounded by gravelly sand, while rocky boulder outcrops are commonplace along the fairways; cactus however are not much in evidence. The inward-nine (Links) is intentionally kept fairly open and links-like, with water only coming into play at the short, doglegging par-4 11th. The greens here, as on some British links courses, are often vast and extravagantly undulating. As the most recent nine, the Links course could benefit from a further "bedding-in" period, although it is already contributing to the excellent quality and varied golf on offer here at Lake View.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
