About Eastern Star Golf Course

Eastern Star Golf Course Logo The course was designed by Trent Jones Jnr and was opened in 1992. There is nothing overly complicated or technical about this course but it always manages to be one of the most popular in the area. One of the biggest attractions with this course is the fact the hole srun effortlessly in to each other and there are no long jokes between holes. The terrain is relatively flat making it a pleasurable course to walk and take in the scenery. The fairways are plam tree lined and generally pretty wide although on the 9th and 18th hole the fairways do narrow making the holes even more of a challenge. Should you hit the ball off the fairway into the semi rough finding your ball isn't too challenging - a welcome relief to many higher handicappers. The closing two par 4 holes have more trees to encounter but the attractive backdrop of jungle clad hill is a splendid sight. Many of the holes have flowers adorning them, most notably the attractive par 3 13th hole. One of the key features of the Eastern Star Golf Resort is the quality of the bunkers. All of the bunkers are well placed and wel maintain something that you associate with Trent Jones' designs. The clubhouse is basic but in good condition with a small restaurant and club shop. The locker rooms are clean and tidy. There is a driving range and putting green close to the first tee for those looking to loosen up before their game. The town of Bang Chang is close by and is a popular stop off for golfers before returning to Pattaya. There is a street with a number of bar and the ever popular Camel Pub is a great place to eat after your round.

    Caddie #192, old and fat. Do not recommend booking her. Cannot read greens and is very slow if walking.

    I liked:
    The course is great. The layout is challenging and the greens are fast. There are no straight putts over1 to 2 feet on this course. It plays differently from morning, afternoon and evening. I rate the course overall low so other golfers know what to expect if the decides to play it.

    Needs to improve:
    A prime example for Caddy Training. I tell the caddy to mark how many strokes it takes me to get on and how many putts. At the end of the round my card reflects the attention to detail and usability to learn and understand the international language English. Oh, they expect you to tip them for being stupid too just to show how stupid you are to tip them.

    Caddies The caddies need training on what they are supposed to be doing as a caddy and not worrying about how much money they can get in tips and if the golfer is going to buy them a drink because they are walking. Walking is an issue for lots and most cannot keep up. Most are old and the young are fat and spoiled by the tourist who are too lazy to exercise too. The course is not that difficult to walk. Two-third of the course is flat with a few elevated greens. Most can not read the greens so do not count on their advice if you feel and think differently when it comes to putting. So I suggest if you planning to play the course on an average, take note on how the ball roll on the greens. I have been saying this for a few years now about the caddies. Nothing changed, so I do not tip more than 100-200 baht. I do not believe in awarding someone for unsatisfactory work.

    Great improvements to the Clubhouse

    I liked:
    Massive investment refurbishing clubhouse and huge effort from ground staff. The course was in immaculate condition with super fast greens.

    Needs to improve:
    Back nine fairways need more attention. Very hard and dry in places.
