Siam Country Club Plantation
Phone: 038 909 700, 038 909 600

Description: Siam Country Club Pattaya Plantation was simultaneously built at the same time during the renovation of Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course, and opened in April 2008. Designed by Lee Schmidt of Schmidt & Curley, the Plantation is a 27-hole golf course and meant to have a clear distinction from the Old Course. Fairways, bunkers and greens are uniquely different from any other golf courses in Thailand. The routing sits high on rolling hills of the natural terrain meandering mountains and natural creeks with a panoramic view of Pattaya. Strong wind is one of the natural character and part of the challenge but the breeze makes the hottest day more pleasurable. The “PLANTATION” name was given in the honor of the historic Sugar Cane, Tapioca, and Pineapple plantations, and each nine-hole is named accordingly. One year after the Plantation open, it hosted the Honda LPGA Thailand 2009 in February, a testimony to quality and service of the golf course. From 2009 onward, the Plantation has been awarded the “Best Maintained Golf Course in Asia Pacific.” A unique architectural “Bird Wings” clubhouse sets on top of the hills. Views of the golf course and its surround undulating terrain can be seen from almost every corner of the clubhouse. From the front balcony, view of the only “Triple Greens,” in Asia, 3 greens of 3 golf holes occupying almost 3,000 square meters is a memorable sight. Inside the clubhouse, ample space and modern style decorations of the locker rooms, restaurant, and pro-shop together with well trained staffs is second to none. Whether the Old Course or Plantation, the distinction is obvious both in the clubhouse and golf course styles. However, the same philosophy of qualities and services are identical. The addition of a new 18-hole Siam Country Club Pattaya Waterside will showcase another style of the same philosophy.

Description: Parichat International Golf Links is located 30 minutes from Pattaya and near to Pattaya Country Club. It takes around 1 hour from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport to reach the course for those coming from the other direction. Opened in 2015, Parichat International Golf Links is an 18-hole course laid out on 200 acres of rolling natural terrain. The short 6,600 yard layout is in average condition and has several tricked out holes which make it best suited for skilled golfers. Large ravines and cliffs frame many of the holes and also come into play to swart good shots from being in play. Another common theme is water that creates unnecessarily narrow openings to the greens juts into the fairways several times through the course. Parichat International Golf Links has several of these “exciting” holes. The par-4 seventeenth plays over 400 yards, is the longest par-4 on the course, and the signature hole. A good score requires a tee shot that negotiates the water which cuts in to the center from the right side of the fairway. The high cliff left frames the hole nicely, thus it’s signature appeal. However, the green is severely sloped from front to back which makes stopping the ball on the approach shot very difficult. The temporary clubhouse is adequate for most needs as are the on-course kiosks. However, the permanent structure once completed will offer better service and more complete facilities. Parichat Links is a choice among many nearby courses for golfers who looking for a decent course at a reasonable price. Carts are mandatory, so this cost must be factored in.

Description: Pattaya Country Club is spread out on over 2,000 rai of park like land amist gentle rolling hills and is one of the closest courses to Pattaya. The golf course is relatively easy and good for golfers of all abilities. Several the holes feature dual fairways making for more challenging as well as for safer routes to the greens. The greens are usually well guarded by bunkers and many are quite undulating. Unlike many other Pattaya area courses, water comes into play on only one hole, the 17th par 4, at Pattaya Country Club. On the other hand, with the vast land area many of the holes are located far away from one another. This not only makes for long walks from greens to the next tees and but also gives rise to the OB areas found on many of the holes. The finishing 3 holes, locally named 'amen corner' are the most difficult on the course and make for some dramatic finishes or surprise scores those counting too early on a good a round. The smaller than usual clubhouse makes up for the lack of facilities with friendly staff and an excellent Thai restaurant, both providing welcome refreshments after any game.

Siam Country Club (Old Course)

Description: Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course is the first privately owned golf club in Thailand, founded by the late Dr. Thaworn Phornprapha, originally designed by I. Izumi. The golf course opened in 1971, and had hosted the Thailand Open 4 times together with many Asian Golf Circuits, and most recently after the renovation in 2007, becomes home of the LPGA in Thailand since 2007. The golf course and clubhouse underwent a complete renovation in 2006, and opened in March 2007. A sister golf course is also simultaneously built nearby with its own clubhouse, called Siam Country Club Pattaya Plantation. Lee Schmidt of Schmidt & Curley Design Inc. took on the redesign the Old Course but kept the original routing of I. Izumi and many of the old characters. Bunkers are added for a modern esthetic look, feel and landscape. Seashore Paspalum is chosen for fairway grass, and Novotek for greens. Despite a new look, the Old Course remains a classic traditional tree line with many fond memories of the past. Classic, beauty, and challenge are what the Old Course is known for today in Thailand. Just like the golf course, the clubhouse also had a 100% complete refurbishment. Utilizing the old structure, modern comforts are added while maintaining a soft executive touch and feel. The restaurant, overlooking the 18th hole (only 50 yd), enjoys spectacular view of the golf course, can host up to 180 guests, and is the best place to be at the end of the round. The guests will find the showers and locker rooms’ facilities to be as comfortable as their homes. Throughout the golf course, there are many kiosks and toilet stops that will assure the guests’ comfort. Shortly after the Old Course was opened in March 2007, it hosted a world class tournament, Honda LPGA Thailand 2007 in October. In February 2009, the tournament moved to Siam Country Club Pattaya Plantation. Since 2010, the Old Course has become home of the LPGA tournaments in February. Events such as the LPGA are testimony to the quality of the golf course, clubhouse, and services. The renovation of Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course marks a commitment of a new level of excellence and is promised to be among the best in Asia Pacific. An additional 18-hole youngest sister golf course, the Waterside, is under construction and is scheduled to open in 2014.

Description: Phoenix Gold Golf and Country Club, opened in 1993, Dennis Griffith's three nine hole courses - Mountain, Lakes and Ocean - presented golfers with great design, stunning views, superb conditioning and proximity to the resort city of Pattaya. The course rapidly became a favourite of locals and visitors alike, and over the years has hosted numerous corporate and charity tournaments, as well as several professional events, including the 2015 All Thailand Golf Championship. In 2013 Ms Chanya Swangchitr, an experienced golf course owner/operator, took over this gem and promptly announced a major investment in the property, signing agreements to upgrade the course, clubhouse, and surrounding 1,000 rai (160 hectares) of property for property development and a planned public listing. With new owners and management, Phoenix Gold has risen, with significant investment back into the course, including a comprehensive makeover that began in 2014 by master designed Pirapon Namatra. The Mountain and Ocean nines have had upgrades of the greens complexes, bunkers, tee tops, fairways and drainage that has produced technical improvements, while not significantly changing the look and feel. By comparison, he has significantly re-routed and toughened up the shorter Lakes nine, adding new water hazards, and overhauling tee boxes and greens, making the new layout much more fun and challenging. But don’t just take our word for it - come and experience the improvements for yourself!

Description: The Siam Country Club Waterside Course is the third layout from Siam Country Club in Pattaya. The Waterside Course, designed by IMG, features gently sloping terrain, making it very different from the hillier Siam Country Club Old and Plantation Courses. Spread out over 200 acres the golfer friendly course is of the same championship quality and 5-star experience as its other two big brothers next door. Environmental waste areas and straightforward holes are the emphasis of most holes at the Waterside Course. Course design is strategic with several lakes and creeks in play. At over 7,400 yards the back tees will challenge the best golfers. At the same time, other tees down to 5,000 yards are available and offer enjoyment for players at any level. Fairways are grassed with the latest variety of Paspalum grass while greens are an ultra-dwarf Bermuda grass. The last three holes of each nine are framed by water. All of the greens are basically flush with the fairways making getting up and down a realistic strategy for most players. Some of the most notable holes include the 17th which is a long 600 yard par-5 that gives big hitters the option to cut across a dogleg left over water to reach the green in two or shorter hitters a layup, but still challenging shot over a deep ravine to make the green in regulation. The lone tree is well left of the green and a good target if playing a layup shot. The final hole is a great finishing hole playing around the large manmade lake in front of the club house. The 420 yard par-4 is a monster for any golfer, especially playing into the prevailing winds. Many rounds will be settled here with the rare birdy possible, but many more bogies or worse more likely. The Waterside clubhouse is of modern contemporary design and has all the facilities of a top golf club. The clubhouse features a 180 degree view of the surrounding valley. From the terrace golfers can see how the course, lakes, creeks and landscaping blend in with natural land formations. The well-stocked pro shop, excellent locker rooms and changing areas, and top quality restaurant serving both Thai and international items add to overall special experience. There is an 18-hole putting “course” next to the clubhouse that can be “played” for as little as THB 100 and is a fun way to settle some bets. The real practice green however is located next to the starting area by the first hole. The excellent staff, thoroughly trained caddies, and first class operations insure a satisfying day out at Siam Waterside for all golfers.
