Description & Signature hole: Hole 5, Par 3 is Gassan
Khuntan’s signature hole which is an island green that is
set on a lake with the Khuntan railway bridge as a backdrop.
Encircled with trees and no rough, this hole can be
merciless, 163 yards from the blue tees and with poor wind
judgment there could be one more ball in the lake.

Description & Signature hole: Lake City has expansive
water hazards on every hole. Many of the Par 4 can be
driven yet danger lurks. The short approach shots to the
greens demand precision and proper placement since
Lake City rewards thoughtful play over pure power.
Gassan Marina Golf Club

This green of 18 holes Par 72 on 7,761 yards is designed
around the contours of a large l ake in Chiang Mai by
Gassan Construction. Add in plenty of waterside bunkers,
a backdrop of mountains, lush greenery and you have
a stunning vista to complement your golfing challenge.

Golfers will be able to wind down in a luxury club house
overlooking the grand lake and surrounding mountains.
At nearly 10,000 square meters in size, it includes Thai and
international restaurants, locker rooms, a seminar room,
pro shop, and a large banquet hall. Constructed to mix
European architecture with Dubai Arabian style, the palace
looks like an Arabian Sheik’s castle and is out-of-place
among the serene mountains of Northern Thailand.

99 Moo17, Makauejae, Muang, Lamphun 51140
Tel: + 66 (0) 5326 6700-1 GPS: 18.642829,99.092045

Description & Signature hole: Hole 9, Par 4 with water
running parallel on the right as well as an enormous bunker,
the temptation to play left is huge, however, be wary of
the 4 bunkers. Play safely past these for the green with
its entry straight ahead, but stray left and you will be in
the sand once again. Hole 16, Par 3. This is an undulating,
island green, 165 yards from the blue tees and only
1 bunker at the back, however the wind can be
treacherous and the distance deceiving.
