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.
Central : Nakhon Pathom
Suwan Golf & Country Club
(18 Holes Par 72, 7,100 yards)
The golf course is over 7,100 yards from the championship
tee. The quality of the course, hilly layout and sloping
dramatic green surrounding fruit orchards, rice fields, palm
trees, and lotus ponds give Suwan Golf a tropical-Thai
character. The course is appreciated by both golf
professionals and golf holidaymakers alike.

Description & Signature hole: Hole 11 Par 5. All measure
-ments are in yards to front of the green only, and for the
range to center of the green add another 15 yards. This
beautiful and fun Par 5 is the longest drive and take all your
power. Take aim to the right of the big tree to the center
of fairway to save your shot. The second shot, a medium
club selection is best to cross the water hazard and the big
trees. Third shot iron up the green must carry to the finally
putt. Be careful of water hazard on the right side of the
green.

Hole 17 is the signature hole with a well bunkered green
surrounded on three sides by large lily ponds. This challeng-
ing hole exemplifies golfing at Suwan at its greatest.

Description & Signature hole: The Par-5 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 dogleg, and
an extremely difficult second shot, after which a highly
skilled third shot is called for.
