The course changes as you play starting relatively open and forgiving but later on wayward shots will be punished.

A very interesting course as the course has so many different holes. The designer Dr Sukitt Klangvisai has done very well to give the modern golfer a bit of variety.

Prices range quite considerably from the weekend to the weekdays and surprisingly at the weekends the course is pretty quiet.
Riverdale Golf Club
On first glance this course looks quite inviting but it does have a nasty underbelly if you’re not quite on your game. Once the one course trees grow and matures then the oks will also match the test you will get when playing. We have found that the course is more enjoyable if you play it back to front especially as on holes 7, 8 and 9 as these holes take no prisoners.
Bangkok Golf Club
Located just outside the city centre of Bangkok, this relatively young Chris Boonyarattanevet course built in the 1990’s has been host to a number of top events.

Bangpoo Golf & Sports Club (Bangkok)
This is a popular Thai locals and expats course due to its convenient location from the city centre and the fact that for an Arnold Palmer designed course the green fee prices are pretty reasonable.

The Royal Gems Golf & Sports Club
Located around 45 minutes form the city centre this course I convenient to play and it is built on natural parkland. Like its name sake many believe that this is a gem of a course and it has hosted a number of prestigious events.

This course is relatively unknown but it won’t stay that way for long.
Best Ocean Golf Club
This course is for all you golfers out there looking for a good golfing challenge. As its namesake suggests this links style course can be pretty daunting if you’re not on top of your game.

The course plays pretty long and can be your downfall if your stroke play is not up to par. Either way if things don’t go your way you can always reflect at the castle like clubhouse even though it is in need of some renovations.
Lotus Valley Golf Club
This is a really enjoyable Gary Player course with a good balance of holes to constantly keep you on your toes. As you would expect water comes in to play on almost every hole and with close cut fairways the course does play quite tight and can punish wayward shots. So make sure you have stocked up with balls and that you’re on the top of your game.

But don’t let that put you off as the course is a joy to play but you have to make your shots.
Nikanti Golf Club
This golf course has been praised by many due to its interesting and different course layout. Rather than having two loops of nine the course designer opted for an unusual 3 loops of 6.

The club house is modern and a great please to enjoy a meal after your round.

Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club
Consisting of 3 contrasting nines this Dennis Griffith’s designed course located a short distance from Pattaya’s main beaches is a good inclusion in to any Thai golf break. Each course has its plus points but the mountain course does offer the best views of the area. Funnily enough the Ocean course is not near the ocean but the lakes course has water coming in to play on most of the holes.
Eastern Star Country Club & Resort
The is a great addition to any golf holiday in Thailand as it is a fair scoring course for both high and low handicappers alike. This Robert Trent Jones Jr course rewards the percentage shots but does favour the longer hitters amongst you. Set amongst coconut palms and only being a short distance from the sea you are embraced with cool breezes as you play.
Rayong Green Valley Country Club
This Peter Thomson designed course which is located a short 40 minute drive further south is well worth adding to those to play in the area. A test for golfers of all abilities, the main draw to this course is the very picturesque nature of this mature parkland course. It is also a very nice course to walk and if you do you will get rewarded with an ice cold beer from the 3 good quality restaurants including a German themed one.

Siam Country Club – Old, Plantation & Waterside Course
This three courses at the Siam Country club are some of the best in Thailand and between them they have hosted some extremely prestigious events. The Plantation course has hosted the 2009 US LGPA and the 2015 Thailand Open. The Old course since being revamped in 2007 has hosted several top events such as the annual Honda LPGA Classic. The Waterside even though it has yet to host a main event is another beauty. So if travelling and change is not your thing then you could simply rock up to these courses and play a different one every day.
Khao Kheow Country Club
This course has something for all and is a good test due to the course receiving strong sea breezes. This Peter Dye course also plays quite long as the course also has lots of elevation changes. There is a nice balance of holes and the undulating greens will reward the good and punish the impatient putter.
St. Andrews 2000 Golf Club
This is one of Thailand’s most interesting courses, not only due to the fact that the course boasts two par 6’s. But also because down to its namesake has tried to replicate the Scottish links course of St. Andrews. Designed by English architect Desmond Muirhead this course pays pretty hard and the advice is to bring a long a few extra balls for your round.
Laem Chabang International Country Club
This is a must play course when visiting Pattaya and this Jack Nicklaus course is considered one of Thailand’s best. Not only is the course extremely well kept but the layout of the holes of how they intertwine with the natural contours, lakes and foliage. It is well worth extending your day a little longer and playing each 3 nines; the mountain, lake or valley course. Again this course is located in between Pattaya and Bangkok so can be included in 2 different destination golfing trips.
Wangjuntr Golf & Nature Park
This is another course which is located south of Pattaya in the hills surrounding Rayong. It is well worth the journey if you are looking for a change of scenery and to play golf amongst pineapple and cassava plantations. The complex has two contrasting 18 hole layouts; the valley course and the highland course which is the longer and more challenging of the two. The area of Rayong is also a destination in itself with accommodation, restaurants and of course the Gulf of Thailand all nearby.
Pattavia Century Golf Club
This course is located roughly half way between Pattaya and Bangkok so it could be included as an additional round on your arrival or departure day.

Blue Canyon Country Club – Canyon & Lakes Course
If in Phuket for long enough it is a must to play both of these course but if you have to select one then most will chose the Canyon Course. The reason is that this course not only hosted the 2007 Johnnie Walker classic but is also home to Tiger Woods 1998 Asian tour victory. Since then Tiger has returned to the course two more occasions again wining in 1998. The lakes course on the other hand which is also designed by Yoshikazu Kato is another great test of golf and should not be overlooked.
Mission Hills Phuket Golf Resort
This picture postcard Jack Nicklaus designed course is a must if visiting Phuket. Feel like a pro and play some holes along the coast that overlooks the Andaman Sea. From pretty much everywhere on the course you are blessed with wonderful panoramic views of the sea and as you would expect with any of Jack’s courses that water comes in to play quite a lot. The whole golfing experience is all about service and food and drinks can be ordered out on the course, so if the round is not going too well then you know what to do!
Katathong Golf & Resort
Located in a valley in the province of Phang Na about an hour’s drive from Puket. This course has an interesting history as it was built on land that was left over from tin mining back in the 1900’s. The open mines and certain landscaping made the area perfect for a golf course. The course as has interesting layout and incorporates all the natural contours making it quite a challenging course to play.
Phuket Country Club
A fair course for fair players. Ok this is not the greatest statement to tempt you to play this course but it is fair and true. The course is actually Phuket’s oldest and most mature and well located in the middle of the beach resorts. So if you are new to golf then this would be the perfect place to start even though there are some challenging holes. The club also has a further 9 holes which are mostly reserved for its members.
Laguna Golf Phuket
Previously known as the The Puket Golf Course but changed its name after a 2014 re-design. This course originally designed by Max Wexler now is even more challenging that it was before. The course is a wonderful test of golf and has even hosted the Thailand Open back in 2009. The course is not only perfect for golfers but the excellent restaurant and Sap facilities make it the perfect resort for all.
Phunaka Golf Course & Academy
If you are a serious golfer then this is a course to give a miss however if you are looking for a bit of fun to fill a couple of hours then look no further. The course is even floodlit so you can play in the evening which is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. There are lots of pars 3’s as you would expect and wayward shots are punished due to the long grass. There is also a driving range and a good restaurant to enjoy a couple of drinks before and after your round.
Loch Palm Golf Club
This is a lovely little course and extremely enjoyable to play and it has a very nice local club feel to it. Even though the course is not the longest you still have to plan your way round to make sure you walk off with a respectable score. As the name suggests there are plenty of palm trees on the course as well as a loch that features on the front nine so wayward shots will get wet.
Red Mountain Golf Club
A must play course when visiting Phuket. This course is interesting, undulating and has a wonderful lay out that meanders its way through water features and gradients. This course is another in the area that was built on an abandoned mine and it is probably Phuket’s hilliest course. It is also a great test of golf as you have to plot your way round and make good decisions of where you are going to land your ball. So very much a risk and reward course.
Tublamu Navy Course
This is another course for the beginner not because it is particularly easy but because it is a public municipal golf course. So if you are new to the game and you are still learning the correct course etiquette then you will not feel completely out of place on this course. So as long as you’re not slow and hold up the locals then this is a good course to break your 18 hole virginity.
