Bangkok Golf Courses
Bangkok Golf Club
Bangkok Golf club is a short, but attractive course with lots of water, well maintained fairways and excellent greens.
Despite its central location, Bangkok Golf Club has a country side feel to it. A few years ago, the course was entirely flooded and thus completely renovated all the holes. At present the course is surrounded with a concrete wall in order to prevent similar flooding and Bangkok Golf Clubs is now one of the only Bangkok courses to remain relatively dry, even in the rainy season
The second course is the nine hole par 27, Mah Boonkroong International Par 3 Course, in which each hole was modeled after a famous par 3 hole from around the world. Both courses are floodlit for night golf.
Bangkok Golf Club is voted among the top 500 Golf holes in the world by US Golf Magazine in 1999. There is an 18-hole course and 9 hole Bangkok Golf Mah Boonkrong International Par3 in our exclusive 200 acres of privately owned land bank. The landscape includes over 5,000 species of trees, over 2,000 floral and plants, over 200 birds and wild game by the lake.
Our Green Bermuda Tifeagle is specially flown in from California, USA to compliment the turf and has been recognized as the best green in Thailand. In additional, it is the first golf course in the world to receive the ISO 9001:2000 certification.
Bangpakong Riverside Country Club
The Bangpakong Riverside Country Club is located along the Bangpakong River around the halfway point between Bangkok and Pattaya. The golf course was one of the first to be built along the Bangkok-Pattaya golf corridor, where there are now more than 25 courses along the way. Once voted one of Asia’s most popular and one of Thailand’s best golf courses, the Bangpakong layout today is mainly for higher handicappers. The course should not be confused with it’s similarly named neighbor, Royal Lakeside, which is the better of the two anyway.
The management at Bangprakong Riverside places great emphasis on the local ecology by practicing “green” golf course maintenance. The overall impact is refreshing environment for golf, with extensive local flora and fauna surrounding the golf course. The Bangpakong Riverside layout is mostly flat and among large paddy fields. Fairways are extremely wide, sometimes seemingly as wide as they are long, which makes the Bangpakong golf course well suited for beginners. There is some thick rough off the fairways, but the balls sit up high for the most part, again making it easy to advance.
On the other hand, the course plays long, especially on holes playing into the prevailing wind off the Bangpakong River. These strong winds can add extra yardage, particularly so on the par 3 holes where players also have to contend with water carries and 200 yard distances. Blind shots over trees and lakes are featured on a few of the holes and the river winds around the course and comes into play often.
Located 30 minutes east of Bangkok, with the 18-hole, par 72 international championship golf course is a 700 acre reserve which incorporates the Bangpakong River and lakes. Voted "Asia Popular Award 1991" one of the best golf courses in Thailand because the architect took special care to blend each golf hole through the reserve in order not to distrub the natural habitat of a variety of wildlife.
Blind shots over trees and lakes are featured extensively which continually test low handicappers. However, Bangpakong Riverside Country Club is Thailand's best kept secret because the layout offers high handicappers a safe alternative route to the hole. It is truly Thailand's most versatile golf course.
Green Valley Country Club Fast Facts
A favorite of local Japanese, Kiarti Thanee Country Club is ideal for higher handicappers and newer golfers. Wide fairways are common allowing average weekend players to either be on or near the greens in regulation. Kiarti Thanee is a relaxing golf course in this respect, but there are also abundant water hazards and sand traps to challenge most serious golfers. The course underwent an extensive course renovation program in 2003, which has toughened the course up a little and made it more challenging for better players from the back tees.
The 18th hole, a par 5 462 yard gem, is a good finishing hole as it can be reached in 2 by more aggressive golfers. This setups up for dramatic finishing possibilities, even if you have as much as a 2 stoke lead going into the last hole.
Two putting greens, an excellent chipping and pitching green plus a three-tiered grass driving range make Kiarti Thanee well suited for golf practice, lessons, and instruction.
Kiarti Thanee Golf Course’s teeing ground offers 3 tee-off points – back
tee at 6,905 yards; regular tee at 6,451 yards; and ladies tee at 5,488 yards. Spacious fairways are so designed to reduce the game pressure while the course layout is to assist the golfers to approach green, or around, within a few strokes. From the first to the last hole, the golfers will find different levels of difficulties in the course that one explained as “Easy to get a bogie, reasonably easy to get a par, but tough to hole a birdie”.
Krung Kavee is a well maintained course located close to the domestic Don Muang airport along the Rangsit canal. The course was designed by Manabu Sakamoto who has also created over 40 championship golf courses all over the world. However, unlike many of the other Japanese course architects, Mr. Sakamoto goes for long golf courses. He also insisted on an excellent drainage system, which insures againststanding water, even in the Bangkok rainy season.
From the beautifully manicured greens to lush fairways Krung Kavee is a pleasure to play for all golfers. The course has some interesting holes including an island green Par 3, which is large enough to allow a chance for all levels of players to knock it on. The course is typical of most courses built on prior rice fields and features a combination of natural and man-made ponds and lakes as hazards. Holes 6, 7, and 8 are three successive demanding par fours and play very long even from the regular white tees. There are many lateral water hazards and several ’water carry’ holes.
Krung Kavee practices “green” maintenance, which not only gives nice playing surfaces, but also eliminated the use of environmentally unfriendly pesticides and herbicides. The clubhouse overlooks the canal and has a panoramic view of golf course. The Krua Rangsit restaurant offers some of the best Thai food in northern Bangkok including curries, soups and seafood dishes all prepared with fresh ingredients.

Krungthep Kreetha is of the older courses near Bangkok city center and features an attractive layout with big and mature trees. The course was opened 29 years ago and among locals it is one of the best known courses in Bangkok.
In the mid 1990’s the Krungthep Kreetha site was entirely redesigned and renovated by James R. Vaughn. The present course layout brings many water hazards into play, these coupled with mature trees and numerous out of bounds makes straight, not necessarily long, drives the key to scoring well at Krungthep Kreetha.
Most holes feature water and OB on one or both sides of the fairway. Assuming you do find the fairway off the tee, the accurate approach shots are also a must due to the many water hazards and greenside bunkers The par 3’s are short, but very difficult to hold the putting surface.
The greens are deceiving and somewhat difficult to read. The Par 4 1st can ruin any chances of a good score very quickly, and the Par 5 2nd is equally difficult with a narrow fairway and water hazards on both sides.
The Krungthep Kreetha club house, also renovated together with the golf course is rather grand and boasts an excellent Thai restaurant. Complete practice facilities including an often empty public driving range are also on the Krungthep Kreetha site.
Krungthep Kreetha golf courses’ close proximity to downtown Bangkok makes this course popular with members, locals, and businessman, so early tee time bookings are suggested.
Krunghtep Kreetha Golf & Sports Club
One of the older courses near the city center features lots of water, attractive layout and big & mature trees. Completely rebuilt in 1994 by James R. Vaughn. This is actually a very demanding test of golf, especially if youre not hitting it straight. Most holes feature water and/or Out of Bounds on both sides of the fairway and the greens are deceiving and somewhat difficult to read. The Par 4 1st can ruin any chances of a good score very quickly, and the Par 5 2nd is equally difficult with a narrow fairway and water hazards on both sides. There are significantly more mature trees than most other courses in Bangkok, and combined with several tight driving holes, Krungthep Kreetha can frustrate you as much as any course.
Why You Should Play Krungthep Kreetha Golf & Sport Club
Close to the city,or actually in the city, but if you don't take the right way you'll end up taking an hour to get there anyway so it's important to know which way you're going. Personally we don't like courses that have 10 yards of fairway and water on both sides, but if that's your thing, then this could be for you. Not that bad, but just doesnt do it for us.
Lakewood Golf Club is an interesting course near to Bangkok city center. The Lakewood golf course comprises of a vast green space and a luxurious housing estate. Although the golf course is relatively flat, the surrounding landscaping features more than 45 species of plants and more than 2,000 trees.
The course has 3 nines, Rock, Wood and Lake. All three nines are similar in design with subtle doglegs, slightly undulating greens and water. Fortunately the water (as any OB) should only seriously come into play on a few holes. The golf course is well maintained all year round and has excellent drainage making it a good choice especially in the rainy season.
Fairways are generally wide and the Bermuda grass course is in excellent condition. The fairways drain well, are somewhat spongy which provides a good lie but important to note; because of the sponginess there will be virtually no roll on your drive. This of course means the course plays longer than the indicated yardage. Also impacting the length of play is the fact that the prevailing wind is at most times in your face and usually on the longest holes! The Bermuda rough is typical Bermuda rough and generally not too severe however during the rainy season, it becomes denser thus requiring at times the need to merely take a lofted club and get back on the fairway.
Good golfing at Lakewood can be assured and some of the pars 3’s are really excellent golf holes that rival the best in Bangkok. There are many doglegs as well as water hazards on 22 of the 27 holes. The seventh hole on the ’Wood’ nine, in particular requires a tee shot well left, in order to avoid the huge lateral water hazard which stretches right across the fairway.
The caddies are all well trained with most having worked at Lakewood for over five years. This makes green reading, with their help, a real pleasure. Lakewood is a little more expensive than some other area courses due to its relatively close proximity to Bangkok city center and the new Suvanabhumi airport as well as its popularity with the many Asian expatriate members. Lakewood is a fine course with excellent service and a good course to play as you get your game in shape.
Located just 18 km. from Bangkok at the Eastern outskirts, the most rapid
developing area. Lakewood Country Club is the Largest green area composing
of spacious 27 holes golf course and housing estate of luxurious living. No need
to wasting your time in commuting for enjoyment. You would find yourself in the
atmosphere of upcountry at Lakewood.
Lam Luk Ka Country Club offers the best 36 hole layout in all Bangkok and provides a very relaxing golf day in Bangkok. Because it’s a little further out and features two courses, tee times are usually easy to find. Both courses meander through Bangkok’s wetlands, where over 10,000 trees and waterways provide homes to over 100 species of birds and wildlife. There has been a great deal of tree planting, so the courses are already are blessed with more shade than many of the newer Bangkok golf courses.
In this very natural, rural environment, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bangkok, four relatively similar nine-hole loops are interchangeably used on any given day. The Championship East Course comprises the A & B nines, the Resort West Course the C & D nines.
Though there is little to separate them in terms of quality of upkeep and presentation, which is always excellent, the East course (7012 yards) is longer than the West (6605 yards), and can feel tougher as a result. Water hazards feature on just about every hole on both courses. As long as you can avoid the many lakes and ponds that flank the fairways and protect the greens, ball-finding from wayward shots should not be too difficult with semi-rough beyond the gently undulating and generally wide fairways. Golfers will also be attracted not only by the good course layout, but also by the greens, which are some of the best putting surfaces in Bangkok. Good bunkering throughout and well-paced sloping greens reinforce the overall high quality golf environment at Lam Luk Ka Country Club.
The Championship East Course places a premium on driving the ball long and straight. Host of the 2002 Thailand PGA Championship, Lam Luk Ka’s East Course will punish errant golf shots, but makes for an enjoyable round if played from the somewhat friendlier white tees.
The long Par 4 7th and 8th holes on the East Course are two of the better Par 4’s in Bangkok and usually play into the prevailing breeze. The back nine is considered one of the best in Thailand, ending with a dramatic risk-reward Par 5. The 18th is a an easy par 5 with a generous fairway. The key is not to get too greedy with your drive. Aim about 5-10 yards right of the right edge of the fairway bunker for your tee shot. A deep bunker guards the front of the green, which should be avoided at all costs. There is a lot of room right of the green and missing your fairway wood or long iron approach will give you the best chance to make an up an down for birdie. Lam Luk Ka’s Championship East Course remains one of Thailand’s most challenging layouts.
The shorter West Course suits all levels of golfers and will test golfer’s course management skills.
The West Course is relatively short, but water comes into play on 15 holes making course management a key factor in scoring. Every hole provides several options, so longer hitters can still hit driver although it’s not necessary on most holes. The West Course is a favorite of tourists and recreational golfers, and is home to a plethora of native birds and wildlife.
The 18th is a very difficult finishing hole where golfers should consider hitting a 3-wood off the tee, aiming down the left side of the fairway. Pay special attention to your aim to ensure you give yourself the best chance to hit it straight. If you miss the fairway consider lying up short of the creek that bisects the fairway. The front portion of the green slopes from front to back, which makes it difficult to get the ball close to a front pin location.
The large clubhouse provides every amenity for the golfer. After a round at Lam Luk Ka, golfers can relax and take a swim in the Olympic-sized swimming pool or enjoy a range of Thai or international culinary delights in the clubhouse restaurant overlooking the 18th hole of the East Course.A short drive from Bangkok's thriving metropolis, Lam Luk Ka sets the stage for a golf experience not easily forgotten. Both courses meander through Bangkok's wetlands, where over 10,000 trees and water ways provide homes to over 100 species of birds and wildlife. After your round, relax and take a swim overlooking the 10th, or enjoy a range of thai or international culinary delights in the clubhouse restaurant overlooking the 18th.

Legacy Golf Club Bangkok
The Legacy Golf Club is the only Jack Nicklaus course in Bangkok. It was formerly known as Natural Park Ramindra Golf Club and part of the large Natural Park group of courses. Before Legacy Golf Club was taken over by the Natrural group it was independently run as the Winsan Golf Club. The golf club is located next to Safari World in the Minburi area and is a very easy 40 minute drive from the city center of Bangkok. The course is popular with local Thai golfers, members, and golf visitors alike. Course conditions are well kept especially considering the amount of rounds played. Caddies are well trained and as good if not better than other Bangkok golf courses. However, during the rainy season the fairways can get soggy very quickly as the course is in one of the lower lying areas of Bangkok.
Legacy Golf Club was built between two lakes and is equally challenging for amateur and professional golfers alike. All the common Jack Nicklaus design features such as waste bunkers, wide fairways, and tight approaches are found in abundance at Legacy.
The Jack Nicklaus designed course measures over 7,100 yards from the “Jack” tees, but with 5 tee boxes to choose from the golf course provides a tough test for players of all abilities. Huge lakes come into play on almost half the holes. Greens are good but sometimes on the slow side, at least compared to some of the top Bangkok golf courses such as Alpine and Thai Country Club. Most of the greens are well guarded and surrounded by deep bunkers. The par 4, sixteenth plays especially difficult as a large island green is all but surrounded by water and sand.
The large clubhouse has several restaurants and function rooms. Service is quite good and the Japanese cuisine in particular is well priced and quite tasty.
The Legacy Golf Club, Bangkok, Thailand - Jack Nicklaus
This very popular Jack Nicklaus design features Nicklaus' trademark waste bunkers wide fairways and tight approaches. Course conditions are excellent considering the amount of rounds played. This course provides a good test of golf from the back tees while also being payable by higher handicappers from the forward tees. A local and tourist favourite, The Legacy Club continues to improve all aspects of the golf operations.
Why You Should Play The Legacy Golf Club
Close to the city, reachable in 40 minutes even amongst the worst of traffic conditions. Good caddies, friendly staff and striving to get better. Book your tee times in advance, weekends are especially busy because of its location. Use your American Express Card for a special rate.
Muang Kaew Golf Club Bangkok
Recently redesigned by Lee Schmidt and John Curley from the USA, Muang Kaew now boasts 18 well guarded greens, many of which are elevated with large side catchment areas, a very unique design aspect and hardly ever seen on Thailand golf courses.
Wide fairways give players some respite for approach shots, most of which are into difficult to hold greens due to the aforementioned elevation changes, high lipped bunkers, and shaved fringes.
The course seems to get better by the hole with the back nine offering a great variety of holes starting with the exciting risk-reward Par 5 13th, where players have a blind tee shot and an approach shot over a large and intimidating water hazard. Even shorter hitters can bite off a bit of the dogleg and have a go at the green, although you’ll need to carry the ball at least 150 yards over the water.
The nine ends with deceiving 18th, a Par 5 where any approach shots short and right will have a watery ending into a blind pond guarding the green.
A new greens keeper and course superintendent along with continued new investment by management to upgrade the greens and some fairways to Tiff Eagle and Paspalum grass, respectively, have resulted in Muang Kaew moving up from a better than average course to a truly excellent Bangkok golf venue.

The Golf Course was originally opened 14 years ago within an established wooded area divided by kalongs and one large river which winds through the first 3 holes of the front nine. The Owners decided to upgrade the golf course in 2003.
Flat green complexes were changed to well protected greens - raised above the fairway level to make for more challenging approach shots and some cavernous bunkers to add difficulty.
Use of Tiff Eagle Grass on the greens enables our Team to produce excellent putting surfaces all year round that run at around 10 to 12 on the stimpmeter. This green speed is demanded by all golfers and is impossible to achieve using the grasses used on most courses in Thailand.
Undulations were added to all the fairways to aid drainage and to produce a running surface all year around. New Turf Maintenance equipment is now used to maintain and condition all areas of the course.
Navatanee Golf Club Bangkok
One of the top 3 Bangkok courses and host of the 1975 World Cup of Golf, Navatanee has improved with time and matured into one of Bangkok’s most beautiful courses. Play is strictly for members only during weekends, but the course does allow international guests to play during weekdays.
The Navatanee golf course is always well maintained and the caddies are very knowledgeable. Some great holes are sprinkled throughout the course including the short Par 4 5th which is one of the more difficult despite being only 329 yards, and the Par 5 9th around the water, which receives unanimous approval from all who play here.
The signature 6th hole at Navatanee is a 445 yard par-4 that demands a draw from the tee in order to reach the green in regulation. However, with water guarding both the entire left side of the fairway and another lake fronting the green, making par on this hole is a notable achievement!
The clubhouse at Navatanee Golf Club has a superb outdoor restaurant overlooking the 9th that serves up some of the best local food around.
Navatanee Golf Course is an exclusive course. It was built in
1973 specifically to host the 23rd World Cup of Golf in 1975. The majestic layout was the result of the vision of its Founder,
Sukum Navapan, being skillfully brought to life by
world-renowned Architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr. s’ philosophy, which was to create a course that was tough for the professional golfers yet provided an enjoyable challenge for golfers of more modest talent. He transformed paddy fields into a 6,902-yard championship course of truly international standards, and his first masterpiece in Asia.
In 1975, the selection of Navatanee by the International Golf Federation to be host venue for the 23rd World Cup of Golf was
the most fitting accolade. The event was won by the US team, represented by Johnny Miller, at the peak of his game, and Lou Graham. Navatanee also hosted the Kingdom’s National Open in 1999, in commemoration of His Majesty The King of Thailand’s
76th cycle birthday. In the same year, Navatanee was ranked
among top courses in the mainland Thailand by Golf Digest USA.
Such rich history, coupled with the striking beauty of the
‘Flame of the Forest’ and Rosewood trees and vivid arrays of bougainvillea that adorn the fairways, creates a perfect harmony
of serenity and challenge that enchants golfers from all over the world. The signature 6th hole is a daunting 445 yards par-4 that demands a draw-shaped shot from the tee in order to reach the green in regulation. However, with water guarding both the entire left side of the fairway and another lake fronting the green in a
sweeping reverse ‘S’ shape, making par on this hole is a notable achievement!
Aside from its proximity to central Bangkok, the course’s
prestigious nature means that it is possible to enjoy a round
within 4 hours.
Navatanee has become a legendary course in Thailand that
simply must be experienced.
Panya Indra Golf Club Bangkok
The 27-hole Panya Indra Golf Club was designed by Ronald Fream of the USA and opened in Ram Indra, just north of Bangkok, in 1991. The golf course is just off the Outer Ring Road which makes for short travel times from Bangkok city center. The Panya Indra Golf Club is the premier and showpiece golf course of The Panya Group, which owns several others around Thailand.
Panya Indra Golf Club comprises three separate 9-hole championship courses, each with an individual design and unique setting. Each course offers its own distinctly different playing experience. The courses aptly named are, the Lagoon Course, Palm Course or Garden Course. The golf course has been extensively landscaped with colorful flowering plants, shrubs, and bushes to provide a beautiful backdrop. Fairways are limed with palm trees and lakes and ponds come into play on almost every hotel at Panya Indra. The bunkers look as though they have been freshly carved, and the smooth flowing lines of fairways give the course a natural feel.
Whether you play the Lagoon course (A), Palm course (B) or Garden course (C) pleasantly contoured and testing holes wait. There is more water to negotiate on the Lagoon, although the Palm and Garden nines do not lag too far behind on that score. Panya Indra offers several unusual design features, in particular undulating fairways and greens. The par three holes are perhaps the most testing aspect of this course and on four occasions the player has to hit his tee shot over water. The Palm course actually boasts an excellent island green par-3, its 4th hole. There are also some very testing dog-leg holes on each of the three nines.
The terrain here is always fairly open with a liberal sprinkling of palm trees and splendid clover-leaf bunkering defining the holes, en route to the testing and at times mesmerizing greens.These 27 putting surfaces, sometimes relatively small in size, do not have a single flat spot on them. All your putts will be breaking left or right, up or downhill - or any combination of those movements. In a similar fashion the fairways, which are also splendidly contoured, give each hole its own unique character in this relatively compact environment.
Course conditions are well kept year round, due in part to the popularity with local Thai business executives and government officials. The course is floodlit for night golfing and the clubhouse facilities, locker rooms, and restaurants are of a very high standard.
The Panya Indra Golf Club was developed by The Panya Group in 1989. Created by top U.S. designer Ronald Fream, it is located on 800 rai of land on Ramindra Rd.
Panya Indra Golf Club comprises three separate 9-hole championship courses, each with an individual design and unique setting. Each course offers its own distinctly different playing experience. You can choose the Lagoon Course, Palm Course or Garden Course. These three beautifully sculpted courses are located in one exotic tropical location, offering the player a golfing paradise.
These courses are very popular with local players and foreign visitors alike. The courses are open six days a week and night golf is available on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Pinehurst Golf & Country Club Bangkok
Pinehurst Golf Club, venue for the 1992 Johnnie Walker Classic and 1994 Thailand Open, is an international standard golf course 15 minutes north of Don Muang (Bangkok’s old) airport and 45 minutes from Bangkok center. This flat course consists of 3 nine holes each with theoretically different styles. The Lake course is similar to many American municipal golf courses. The Greenfield nine is very smooth and flat. The Forest course is the most challenging of the 3 nines.
Pinehurst is rather average in quality and the club house and golf lodge are showing their age. That being said, the convenient location, wide fairways, and flat greens make it suitable for mid to high handicappers who want a relaxing game at an easy to reach Bangkok golf course. One of the par-3 holes boasts the largest putting green in Asia!
Another unique point at Pinehurst is the VIP golf carts with Rolls Royce branding that are available for rent! This together with night time flood lighting makes Pinehurst popular with the locals and Asian expatriate golfers. The course has a generous clubhouse, on site golf lodge (only 2 star quality), and several restaurants. The view from the clubhouse lounge is quite nice, with the golf course all around.
President Country Club Bangkok
The President Country Club is a classic Trent Jones Jr design of 36 holes. The course is surrounded by rice paddies and has lots of migratory birds and other wildlife in abundance. Being slightly further from Bangkok makes tee times easy to book on all but the busiest holiday weekends.
Each hole was designed to be distinct in approach from all the others. Fairways are wide, but undulating and offer a variety of lies. The rough of wiry Bermuda grass, if found, often forces the golfer to play a less aggressive lay-up shot. Water hazards come into play on about half of the holes and well positioned bunkers, a Trent Jones trademark, surround the greens. Accurate shot-making will be well rewarded. Greens run fast and true, but the player must be aware not to miss the subtle breaks found on almost every putting surface.
The pars 3’s are tricky as most of them require long water carries to greens guarded by deep bunkers. The par 4’s are mostly less than 400 yards which allows for good birdie chances for accurate second shots.
A huge clubhouse caters to all the golfers needs with a well stocked pro shop and adequate coffee shop serving both Thai and International dishes.
At first sight the fairways may appear wide, but placing your drive in the correct position to attack the flag is a major factor to scoring well at President. The tough wiry Bermuda rough, it found, often force the golfer to play a less aggressive shot. Most greens are well protected by deep greenside bunkers and getting up and down is no simple task. Greens run fast and true, but the player must be aware not to miss the subtle borrows.

Ratchakram Golf Club Bangkok
Rachakram Golf Club is a newly opened course in the Bangsai area of Ayutthaya province north of Bangkok. Ratchakram features a great layout offering a tremendous variety of memorable holes. Greens are quite firm and fast, but receptive to holding approach shots, even with long irons and/or woods. In addition to superb greens, the bunker sand is of a nice firm texture, providing the ability to put good spin on bunker shots. The fairways provide excellent lies and are generous with young trees lining most. Now they do not present much of a problem, but naturally they will in future years, enhancing the challenge of Rachakram Golf Club. Designed like a links course there are the undulations and openness in front of the greens enabling shots to run up to the greens on a number of the holes. This course has a great variety of holes both in length and design. The pars 3’s are challenging with lengths of 193, 230, 206 and one short one of 136 yards. The par 5’s all measure over 500 yards and with the wind against you at times; these par holes can play like well over 600 yards!
There is plenty of water including some blind water hazards. The most scenic holes due to their outstanding design are number 10, a dogleg par 4 with a carry over water to a huge green with a false front and hole 12, a long par 5 into the prevailing wind; don’t even think of reaching in two shots.
The Ratchakram clubhouse is new, very modern and clean with excellent locker room facilities.
This is a must play course, especially before word gets out and it becomes more popular. While the drive from Bangkok is slightly longer than other Bangkok golf courses, playing speed, even on a weekend, is less than 4 hours, making the overall elapsed time quite reasonable.
Ratchakram Golf Club, opened December 2006 is in the Bangsai area of Ayutthaya province, north of Bangkok. Designed by the same Thai golfer who designed Phuket Country Club, I found the course to be a great layout offering a tremendous variety of memorable holes. I never did find out the types of grasses used, but nevertheless the fairways provided excellent lies and greens superb putting surfaces. It reminds one of a links style course with the undulations and openness and the ability to run shots up to the greens on a number of the holes.
The par 72 course measures 6827 yards from the blue tees. Under construction are a championship set of tees which will definitely challenge even the best golfers. Expecting flat and somewhat municipal design, I was amazed to find the course in excellent condition from tee through green, with many undulations, not only throughout the fairways and rough but on the greens as well. The greens are outstanding, with the as mentioned significant undulations. They are firm and fast, but still receptive to holding approach shots, even with long irons and/or woods. To date, they are some of the best greens I have experienced in Thailand. In addition, the bunker sand is of a nice firm texture (not soft and fluffy), providing the ability to put good spin on bunker shots.
Fairways are generous with young trees lining most but they do not present much of a problem now but naturally in future years will enhance the challenge of the Rachakram golf course.
This course has a great variety of holes both in length and design. From the blue tees, the par 5’s measure 500, 550, 578, and 556 yards. With the wind against you at times, a couple of these par holes likely play well over 600 yards!
Again from the blues, the pars 3’s are challenging with lengths of 193, 230, 206 with one short one of 136 yards. There are some blind water hazards and this will challenge the first time player at Ratchakram. The course layout on the scorecard cannot be relied on as several of the hole layouts were totally inaccurate. Our caddies spoke no English so they were of little help, in fact since this is a new course, they are new as well and thus require quite a bit more training and development.
There are several scenic holes due to their outstanding design. Bring your camera for number 10, a dogleg par 4 with a carry over water to a huge green with a false front. Hole 12 is a long par 5. At 578 yards with the wind is in your face, don’t even think of reaching in two shots.
The clubhouse is new, very modern and clean with excellent locker room facilities. We did not try the restaurant as our driver took us to a nearby local restaurant on the Chao Praya River to enjoy some fresh seafood and cold beers.
Rose Garden Golf Club Bangkok
Rose Garden Golf Club is the one of most well known golf courses in Thailand. This beautiful golf course has once been voted by an international golf magazine as among the best 20 resort courses in the world. Well maintained and lush with mature trees and thick vegetation, the Rose Garden more than lives up to its name in substance as well as tranquility. In particular from February to April, golfers can enjoy the good views of the many flowers in full bloom around the course.
The course is mostly level, with narrow tree-lined fairways and heavily-bunkered greens. The positioning of water around the course not only challenges the keen golfer, but also enhanced the beauty of the course. One unique feature of the Rose Garden Golf Club is that each hole has two greens, one left and one right, which not only ensures good conditions from less frequent play, but also adds to the variety for those golfers playing multiple rounds. The par-five holes are perhaps the highlight of the round, particularly the 11th, where the player must hit to the right from the tee in order to be able to negotiate the left and dog-leg, and an extremely difficult second shot, after which a highly skilled third shot is called for.
The caddies are always neatly dressed, well-mannered, and have a firm knowledge of the course and the game. Service at the Rose Garden is very good and the course has its own on site golf lodge and resort.
General Over View
This beautiful golf course has been rated in the top 50 of the world's courses by international golf magazines. Superbly maintained and lush with mature trees and thick vegetation, the Rose Garden more than lives up to its name in substance as well as tranquility. The course is rather flat, with narrow tree-lined fairways and heavily-bunkered greens. The par-five holes are perhaps the highlight of the round, particularly the 11th, where the player must hit to the right from the tee in order to be able to negotiate the left and dog-let, and an extemely difficult second shot, after which a highly skilled third shot is called for.
Royal Gems Golf and Sports Club
At Royal Gems, Designer Garry Roger Baird has build a ’gem’ of a course equal to his other masterpieces; the famed Shuzu course of the Shishido Kokusai Golf Club in Ibaraki, Japan, and the Hermitage Course, a permanent LPGA tournament site in the United States. The Royal Gems Golf club is one of only a handful of Thailand golf courses to be officially accepted as a member of the United States Golf Association; which is only granted to clubs after their layouts and facilities have been deemed to meet Championship standards.
Playing to 7,107 yards from the blue tees, the par 72 layout features deep blue lakes, wide and narrow fairways, deep rough, big bunkers and huge greens. The member’s only course is one of most stylish of all the golf courses in the greater Bangkok area. The course has a mixture of American, Scottish and Thai features. It is relatively lesser known among Bangkok golf courses and is rarely included in Bangkok golf packages due to the difficulty in securing tee times; only available for in-house guests or through a handful of authorized agents.
Although relatively flat, each hole has been individually sculpted and presents its own array of challenges, usually clearly visible from the tee. The par-five holes are testing and three of the four par-three holes require the tee shot to be hit directly over water to reach the green. Water is often in play, so too the excellent fairway and greenside bunkering. A wonderful array of trees lines the holes to catch those occasional wayward shots. Overall, Royal Gems is a beautifully presented collection of golf holes, enhanced by top-quality green-keeping and located in a very pleasant and natural parkland environment.
The golf club includes a 98-room golf resort, condominiums and houses. There is a grass driving range and a host of other practice facilities for golfers. The small restaurant at the club house serves up some great Japanese, Thai, and Western delicacies.
Golf Course Details
Once you have made your way to the first tee you will find yourself challenging to our spectacular golf course lay-out. The designers wanted each hole to be so difference that no two shots would be the same on any holes. To achieve this they have combined Thai, American and Scottish design features on to the course, including "grass bunkers" and the "stepped bunkers" which most local golfers will not have played before. These hazards are unique and challenging even to golf veterans.
Royal Golf & Country Club Bangkok
The Royal Golf & Country Club is the closest 18-hole standard golf course to the Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi international airport. Specifically, the golf course is located off Bangkok Chonburi Motorway around 30 minutes from the main tourist and commercial areas of Bangkok or 5 minutes from the airport.
Chohei Miyasawa designed the Royal course to preserve the natural environment throughout and to give golfers a scenic, yet refreshing atmosphere in which to enjoy their game surrounded by many colorful flowers and shade trees. The layout features undulating fairways and tied greens on nearly every hole. Lots of unique and well-kept flower beds make this course particularly pretty with nice surrounding scenery, including excellent view of 2006 Thai prime minister’s home and back yard: making a real “Royal Golf” experience.
Long par 3’s on the course are some of the most challenging in Bangkok, especially the 230 yard 17th, which is as difficult as they come! The 14th, a par 4 of 409 yards, requires two very long shots to reach the green in regulation. The next hole, a par 5, is famous for the narrow fairway and landing area, requiring three straight shots to avoid the water running down the left side of the hole. Hole 16, another tricky par 4, dubbed the "Mickey Mouse hole" because its sand bunker, resembles the famous Disney Character, has two imposing ears sticking out. The greens, in particular at Royal, are some of the best kept in Bangkok, and roll year round at over 10 on the stimpmeter.
Good practice facilities with putting green, pitching green, sand bunker, and grass driving range make Royal a good place for a pre-round warm up or practice session.
A spacious clubhouse is perfect after-match comforts, making a round at Royal a great way to spend a 5 hour layover in Bangkok!
Opening in 1993, the Royal Lakeside Golf Club located at the mouth of the Bangpakong River features beautiful surroundings, with a profusion of shrubs and flowers. The riverside setting ensures for cool breezes throughout the day and golfing enjoyment is enhanced by the beautiful surrounding. A unique feature of the golf course is that there is the private marina for yachts wanting to dock in the area. Members can enter the golf course from the Yacht Club which makes it possible to reach the golf course by boat from Bangkok or Pattaya.
Some holes run right along the Bangpakong river banks. From the white tees the course gives the average handicap golfer the chance to make a few pars, especially on the par-three holes. The greens are fast and true and the fairways and bunkers are always kept in immaculate condition. Often strong winds from the sea provide a special dimension for the game.
The center piece of the resort is a stunning white clubhouse. Two excellent Japanese and Thai restaurants make for a nice choice of fine dining after a round.
When Pete Dye designed this golf course, it was known as the Bangna Country Club, but is now called Subhapruek (pronounced su-paa-preuk) Golf Club. The course location is very natural, with only the tall white tower, golden domes and spires of the nearby ABAC University visible above the tree-lined perimeter. Although constructed out of flat marshy rice fields, Dye has laid out a visually exciting and challenging layout that has grown into one of Bangkok’s finest golf courses. Palm tree lined fairways with shaped bunkers, big water hazards, and mature stands of trees describe this Bangkok golf course. Well maintained year round, the quality of golf matches the excellence of the layout. A pleasant breeze is often present and this course just lays itself in front of you and gives you exactly what you see. At just over 6800 yards this course presents a terrific challenge to golfers of all levels. Water comes into play on almost every hole at Subhapreuk. This is definitely not a course for hookers or slicers and long hitting is not the name of the game either. A shorter, controlled game will generally prevail over a long, errant one. The fairways often look narrow from the tee-box, but open up nicely around the landing areas.
From the white tees, the par fours are generally short and can offer some good scoring opportunities. The par three’s are all over water and very tricky - mastering them will be the secret to a good score. This is a challenging, but fair test of golf and in signature Pete Dye trade mark, even higher handicappers have escape routes on the more difficult holes. The finishing holes on each nine are the highlights, the Par 5 8th doglegging slightly around a lake and the Par 4 9th also protected by water on the entire right side of the hole. The most menacingly closing threesome are the real stars of Subhapreuk. The boulder-rimmed, island green par-3 16th is delightful, while the short par-4 17th, wrapped around a lake, is as tight and testing as they come. The same lake is also in play alongside the par-4 18th, which is reminiscent of the 18th at the TPC at Sawgrass. With waterfall in the back drop, this is one of the prettiest holes in Thailand golf. Just in case you can’t get enough of this course, or you need to settle a tied match play, there is even a short par-3 19th thrown in for good measure. The clubhouse is excellent and features a great restaurant serving equally as good Asian and Western food. The Chinese Dim Sum and Thai noodle selections, available throughout the day, enjoyed with a few cold beers is particularly a good way for golfers to count their score and reflect on the their round. Subhapruek Golf Club. Opened in 1993 and formerly known as Bangna Country Club. HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn in 1995 graciously bestowed the name Subhapruek which literally means beautiful plants.Walking the course gives the player a pleasurable, sensual, and sensational experience. Each hole is intentionally designed as a signature hole and a challenge to test the players and demands not only skill shot making but an intellectual approach to the game. Indeed the course is very playable and enjoyable for golfers of all skill levels.
Summit Windmill Golf Club Bangkok
Summit Windmill is one of the most challenging layouts in Bangkok. Despite its difficulty, it continues to remain an attraction for all types of players as course conditions are always kept up well.
TWater comes into play on many of the holes starting with a large hazard that flanks the left side of the long par-5 1st hole. The same concept is repeated on the 18th and both these holes also happen to be the golf course signature holes that well exemplify the course challenge. The 1st hole is a long 624 yards, even by today’s standards, and the 18th is an exciting finishing hole that can provide some dramatic endings to any round.
Nick Faldo’s often innovative design also is further characterized by contoured fairways and four excellent quality, water-protected par-3’s, thebest of which is the island green 12th. A variety of palm trees line most fairways and give the course a Thailand tropical feeling. With little rough to worry about, golfers can look forward to getting their balls onto the many elevated greens and coping with the undulations.
Make sure you play from the set of tees most suited to your level of play or you’ll be in for a rough day. The black championship tees in particular are set on their own island teeing areas and are placed at very different and more difficult angles than the other tees.
The clubhouse is one of Thailand’s most opulent, resembling a European castle. Some of the golf villas in the surrounding housing estate are just as grand and could easily be mistaken for the clubhouse at any other course. Good views into these homes can be had from many of the holes at Summit Windmill making for interesting walks and when waiting between shots.
Lighting was installed in 2004 and this makes night golf an option for those with limited time in Bangkok and wanting to get in as much golf as possible. In 2007 course owners appointed Le Meriden Hotels to build a hotel on site. In 2009, the course and hotel will be re-branded as Le Meriden Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Golf Resort.
Summit Windmill is popular with both locals who are mostly members and also tourists who want a quick round at excellent course as it just 30 minutes from the center of Bangkok. Good tee times are at a premium and the golf course is almost always fully booked on weekends. Although located within the city suburbs, there is a definite oasis quality about Summit Windmill. The golf course is great choice to escape to and enjoy the pleasures of tropical golf course – an outstanding choice for inclusion in any Bangkok golf vacation package.
Suwan Golf & Country Club Bangkok
Suwan Golf & Country Club is a new course is just less than an hour drive from Bangkok. Surrounding fruit orchards and rice fields along with the golf course’s hilly and challenging layout makes every hole have its own unique character. More than most other Thailand golf courses there are many holes with significant elevation changes where level fairways play up to built up and well guarded greens.
Several holes require long and straight tee shots when played from the back tees so as to take the strategically placed fairway hazards out of play. The tips play at over 7100 yards! Water or OB comes come in to play on most holes, putting shot making accuracy at a premium.
Holes number 2 and 14 are among the more challenging, the former being a double dog leg par 5 and the later being a long par 4 with water running down the right side. Careful shot planning is required to make par on both of these holes and only repeated playing will give the golfer the correct club selection knowledge required. Hole 17 is the signature hotel with a well bunkered green surrounded on three sides by large lily ponds. This challenging hole exemplifies Thailand golfing at its greatest.
Imported Paspalum grass is used in fairways while the greens are constructed of Sea Isle turf from the USA. Putting surfaces are among the best in Bangkok, even rivaling the lightning fast speeds found at championship courses like Alpine or Thai CC.
Suwan Golf and Country Club is one of Bangkok’s best golf courses. The club is a must play as part of any Bangkok golf vacation and playing now is even better as the course has yet to be discovered and Suwan is less crowded as compared to the other Bangkok championship golf courses.
his new course is just less than an hour's drive from Bangkok. Surrounding fruit orchards, along with the course's excellent hilly and challenging layout makes every hole have its own unique character. Several holes require good & distant tee shots when played from the back tees so as to take the strategically placed fairway hazards out of play. Water also comes into play on nearly every hole putting shot making accuracy at a premium. Imported Paspalum grass is used in fairways while the greens are constructed of Sealsle turf from the USA. The Suwan Golf & Country Club course should be one of Bangkok's best if maintained properly over the next several years.
Thai Country Club played host to the 2006 Volvo Masters. This prestigious member’s course is managed by the Peninsula Hotel, Bangkok. Thai County is often considered the best in Bangkok as it sets the standard for service excellence.

Thana City Golf & Country Club is one of only a handful of golf courses in Southeast Asia designed by Australian Greg Norman. The golf club hosted several major professional tournaments including the 1993 Thailand Men’s Open, the 1994 and 1995 Kosaido Thailand Ladies Open and host of the final round of the Johnnie Walker Super Tour 1996 which was won by Ernie Els.
Plain grasses, reeds and lots of sand were used to create an illusion of a seaside links right in the middle of one of Bangkok’s biggest condominium developments. The course layout is enhanced by natural streams, lakes and an abundance of strategically-placed sculptured sand traps. Accurate tee shots are required on almost every hole to avoid the many fairway bunkers. Four island greens on the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 12th holes make for some interesting approach shots.
The large opulent club house and sports complex share the same thoroughbred as the course and is starting to show some signs of it’s age. One highlight is the club house pro shop, which is one of the better stocked and more reasonably priced golf shops attached to any Bangkok golf course. The club house dining facilities are also recommended as a nice selection of traditional Thai, Chinese, Japanese, and western dishes are served together with ongoing beer promotions by very friendly staff.
Close to the city and with Greg Norman's name on it, Thana City Golf & Country Club gets a lot of play everyday of the week despite the owners investing very little capital into course improvements. There is a good mixture of short and long Par 4's and Par 5's and the golf course design is one of the better ones in Thailand. Once home to the Nick Bolliteri Tennis Academy and David Leadbetter Golf Academy, the Master Plan fell short of its vision but the course remains popular with locals and tourists alike. Still, if you're just wanting to play a good golf course without the bells and whistles, then Thana City is worth a visit.Greg Normans only golf course in Thailand and a good track for all players. Shocking service and very grumpy Assistant Manager, coupled with some of the worst restaurant service you'll find anywhere, but if that doesnt bother you, a good day of GOLF is to be had.
The Vintage Golf Club is one of Bangkok’s lesser-known layouts, so much so that many players are pleasantly surprised by this course. Vintage was designed by the up and coming US golf architect Arthur Hills, one of his only Asian creations. The course also retains many of the natural surroundings like marshes with reeds and multi-colored bougainvillea plants to give the golfer the feeling that he is in the Thai countryside rather than at a championship course in the outskirts of Bangkok.
Vintage Golf has some thrilling short golf holes including the 128 Par 3 2nd, Par 5 10th and Par 4 13th, all of which will have you writing down a high score if you lose concentration or hit a bad shot.
TThe course is almost always in excellent playing condition and the fairways are harder (less muddy) than most other area courses making 50 to 80 yard rolls from low flying (line) drives easily achievable.
Less publicity makes for readily available tee times at Vintage, and fast play without delays, especially on weekdays when course is practically empty. Vintage should be considered as an alternative venue for those persons wanting a good off-the-beaten track course as part of an overall Bangkok golf package.Incorporating a glamorous clubhouse with swimming pools, tennis courts and a fitness center, the 18-hole Vintage Club is located in pleasant countryside about 30 minutes from central Bangkok and ten minutes off the Bang-na Trad 28 km junction at Bang Phli.
Although the course is rather flat, its greens, water hazards and fairways are well-placed and it is always in excellent condition, particularly on the par-five's, which are the course's most difficult holes. 5
Make sure you save a couple of your best shots for the 18th, a 385 yard par 4 that features a very tricky second shot into a long, narrow green that is bordered by water.
Windsor Park is set in a large park land on the outskirts of Bangkok. The course features mature tree lined fairways, many green side bunkers, sweeping creeks and ponds, and sloping greens.
The first 27 holes consisting of Courses A, B, and C all opened the same time and share similar design characteristics. All aspects including design, challenge, beauty, and playing conditions are in perfect harmony making Windsor golf a perfect course for all players. Windsor Park Golf Club is a favorite among locals and an excellent choice for thosewho appreciate a good course that is away from the Bangkok hustle and bustle.
The most recently constructed 9 holes (course D), opened in 2006, is one of the best challenges in all Bangkok. This nine at Windsor plays around a man-made lake and requires very accurate tee and approach shots in a similar style as the exclusive member’s only Amata Springs Golf Club. Undulating and close cut greens make this nine even more of a challenge and scoring well can be very frustrating even for the best golfers.
The golf course upkeep is better than most other Bangkok courses, including the large club house which overlooks the course C 9th hole and serves excellent western breakfasts as well as the usual Thai and Asian selections. The staff is friendly and oftentimes they have ongoing beer promotions featuring ice cold local brew on tap. A great way to wrap up a day at this Bangkok golf course!
About an hours drive from downtown Bangkok, pass Minburi on Suwintawong Road, Km 9,5 Panya Park, a place that top U.S. designer Ronald Fream created what were once rice paddies to a golf course that within nature's serene harmony, lies the personal challenge of golf.
The 27-hole, par-108 championship course, was created to be a player's course. The layout features gently contoured sloping greens, smooth flowing lines of tree lined fairways, scalloped and deceptively shallow bunkers as well as soft sweeping creeks and ponds that come into almost every hole.
More than 6,000 colorful plants and trees were added to further enhance the courses' natural feel of lush garden and serenity. The course may be short, but is perfectly formed, offering a strategic playing ground for all golf-enthusiasts.Panya Park offers 3 nine-hole courses, each a unique challenge in distinctly different surrounding. A course, B course and C course each extends nearly 3,470 yards from the back tees. Complementing the international standard course is Panya Park's magnificent centre piece, the elegant and spacious clubhouse.
