Central Region

Bangkok and the nearby provinces surround the base of the Chao Phraya River delta as it flows into the Gulf of Thailand. In a snapshot this region illustrates the stark differences between modern-day consumer-culture Thailand and the traditional agrarian society of yesteryear. The region is an interesting choice to take a golf tour with convenience and all other urban attractions nearby in the metropolis with its shopping.

Description & Signature hole: 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
and 200 yards distances. Blind shots over trees and lakes
are featured on a few of the holes and the river winds
around the course and often comes into play.

today’s golfers.

Description & Signature hole: Every hole represents its
own individual challenge and affords both an easy path to
the green for Par or a more risky route for a birdie chance.
Water comes into play on every hole to some degree.

Scottish design, close cut fairways and fringes feature
around the greens.

challenges from the teeing ground all the way to the green,
whether it is the trees, or sand hazards in the middle of
the fairway, in addition to the strong winds blowing in from
the Gulf of Thailand.
