1 Alpine Golf & Sports Club
One of the most technically difficult and visually stunning courses in Thailand, the Alpine Golf and Sports Club will be forever remembered as the site of Tiger Woods’ Johnnie Walker PGA Tour victory in 2000. The course is impeccably maintained with rolling fairways and a series of water and sand hazards to avoid. The name Alpine is a reference to the hilly landscape, and while ‘alpine’ is a little exaggerated, the changes in altitude are unique to the typically flat landscape in the Bangkok area.
2 Thai Country Club
In terms of an overall experience – world class facilities, professional caddies and an interesting variety of holes – Thai Country Club is unbeatable. This prestigious golf club has seen the world’s best play here, and although it is a technically difficult course, wayward shots can often by recovered with a shot out of the scrub. Experienced golfers looking for the complete package often state Thai Country Club as the number one course in Thailand.
3 Lam Luk Ka Country Club
Located an hour outside of Bangkok, Lam Luk Ka Country Club is built on wetlands and is home to many tropical species of plants and animals for an unforgettable round of golf that is distinctly Thai. The variety of trees also provides welcoming shade– something you will be very thankful of if you have a midday tee off. There are two full 18 hole courses at Lam Luk Ka so reservations are usually easier to guarantee than at other courses. For intermediate players, the West Course offers a more modest challenge as the fairways are wide and the distances achievable with woods or irons – although several sloping greens still make putting a real test.
4 Subhapruek Golf Club
Subhapreuk Golf Club is a fairly flat course with pleasant breezes and partial shade from palm trees lining the fairways. Big hitters aren’t really rewarded here as holes are typically shorter than at other top-end courses, making it a great course for a leisurely game. Several par-four holes offer good opportunities for low scores, although water features around the par-threes can be fairly tricky. Subhapreuk Golf Club is a favourite of the corporate crowd and gets busy on weekends, so it’s best to book for a round on a weekday if possible.
5 Thana City Golf & Country Club
minutes from downtown Bangkok, Thana City Golf Course is a tricky course that will make you think hard about the shots you take, especially approach shots, as almost all greens are guarded by hazards on every hole. Designed by the legendary Australian golfer Greg Norman, Thana City has several long holes which are a challenge without a trusty fairway wood or punchy iron. Of course, it’s not all hard work and a round here is delightful, designed as the centre piece of a luxury condominium development, with streams and lakes dissecting the course.
