Thai Country Club

The Thai Country Club has been voted the “Best course in Thailand” in 2001 and 2006 and is one of the most challenging championship layouts in Asia. From the magnificent club house (voted best in Asia in 2006), to the immaculate fairways and greens, this is a truly wonderful golf experience.

Muang Kaew Golf Club
Recently redesigned by Lee Schmidt of Mission Hills, China, Amata Springs and Chiangmai Highlands fame the Muang Kaew Golf Course features 18 subtlety guarded greens most of which are elevated, set in a parkland environment with lakes and klongs winding their way through this Bangkok golf course. The holes are lines with a variety of mature trees, The fairways are generous to give the golfer space to circumvent the bunkering and challenging greens. The real challenge is positioning off the tee – the pin position dictates the area on the fairway to be on. The short game practice facilities feature two tiff eagle putting greens, chipping area and practice bunker. Par 72, a challenging 7200 yards of the championship tees but a more playable 6500 yards from the normal tees.
Navatanee Golf Course
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.
Summit Pinehurst Golf and Country Club
Summit Pinehurst Golf and Country Club: 27 hole complex that has extensive corporate facilities. Not the longest golf course on our list but more than makes up for this with a great variety and complexity of holes. The golf complex consists of a hotel and serviced apartments that will meet every need. A very challenging golf course that is one of our favourites.The golf club has extensive club hire, buggy hire and caddies.
Bangkok Golf Club
Bangkok Golf Club: Exclusive club with excellent facilities. A very challenging golf course with excellent greens. The golf course measures nearly 7000 yards off the championship tees and includes an island green, an island tee and the most exciting waterfall hole you will ever play!! The golf course has excellent facilities including a driving range, comprehensive pro shop and a number of really good restaurants. This golf course specialises in night golf which is a must do thing.
Royal Gems Golf Club
Playing to 7,107 yards from the blue tees, the par 72 layout features deep blue lakes, narrow fairways, deep rough, big bunkers and huge greens. The member’s only course is one of most stylish of all the Bangkok golf courses in the City area. The course has a mixture of American, Scottish and Thai features. 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. Wonderful arrays of trees line the holes to catch occasional wayward shots.
