(site of Tiger Woods' 2000 Asian Tour win)
Established in 1996 and designed by Ron Garl, Alpine is generally regarded as one of the top courses in Bangkok. This 7,100 yard Championship layout has hosted two Johnnie Walker Classics and many other tournaments and its slick greens with severe undulations make it a real test of golf. Always beautifully manicured, but don't be fooled, the bunkering and many water hazards provide a significant challenge.
(solid course & great layout with fast greens, host of 2003 Volvo Masters)
Bangkok Golf Club has one championship 18 hole layout. Established in 1993 by a local architect, the main championship course held the Volvo Masters in 2003 and the Thailand Ladies Open on numerous occasions. Very tight and testing for any level of player, it is usually in good condition and boasts some of the slickest greens in Bangkok.
(wide fairways, large greens and limited hazards)
Established in 1990, the course is one of the more generous courses in Thailand with wider fairways and many of the water hazards not in play. The 6,600 yards of the white markers play more easily than the yardage. Normally in good condition, the fairway grass allows balls to sit up and beg to hit which is great for the longer hitters making two of the par fives easy to reach.
(Thailand's only Arnold Palmer designed track)
Designed by the great Arnold Palmer, this course was once very popular but unfortunately the nearby industrial estate produces unpleasant odours that reach to Bangpoo Golf Course. Traffic jams in the immediate area can also be frustrating when trying to reach the golf course. Established in 1994, this 6,480 yard layout is best played in the morning to avoid the insects and mosquitoes that come around the course in the early evening.
(excellent course set in rural surroundings)
Set among the rice paddies and small villages of rural Ayuttaya, Bangsai Country Club is an attractive, yet challenging course. Situated 80 minutes north of Bangkok it presents a first-class challenge to golfers of any standard.
The course was built by designer, Pirapon Namatra in undeveloped, open countryside surrounded by creeks and woodlands.
(challenging links-style layout by the sea)
Probably the nearest thing to a Links course in Thailand, this Lee Schmidt design was built in 2005 and measures just over 7,000 yards from the championship tees but the ocean breezes can make it feel longer at times. The scenic course, cooling breeze, friendly caddies and close proximity to Bangkok make it well worth a visit. There is a good driving range, and plenty of well stocked drink stops on course.
(generous fairways with some of Bangkok's best greens)
Desiigned by local architect in 2006, this courses is quite a long drive out of Bangkok. Your first impression is a spectacular Spanish style clubhouse with great views over the course which has 27 intersting holes. However the main feature on this course are the greens which are the fastest and most undulating in Bangkok and taking four putts is not uncommon.
(upscale Nick Faldo design with 1st class facilities)
This Nick Faldo designed course opened in 1997, measuring 6,747 yards and remains one of the most underated courses in Bangkok. It's excellent design incorporates good use of water features and bunkers. Be warned that the course is not always in the best condition and the changing facilities are poor.
(well-conditioned Robert Trent Jones Jr. layout)
This Robert Trent Jones Junior course, established in 1998, makes excellent use of a flat piece of land surrounded by up-market properties. Undulating fairways and plenty of water hazards make for a visually attractive course that is challenging to golfers at all levels. Be aware that this courses gets overcrowded at weekends and quite often you need to allow 5 hours to play because they allow six balls.
(pleasant course popular with locals)
Originally opened in 1989, Kiarti Thanee was given an extensive redesign in 2004 to lengthen the course and make it more challenging. Now measuring 6,905 yards from the back tees, the course is dominated by doglegs and a good mix of length on the par threes. There are plenty of water hazards in sight, but not really in play.
(well-conditioned layout in private housing estate)
Designed by Manaku Sukomoto, this public course measures over 7,000 yards from the back tees. Even the white tees at 6,600 yards are very challenging, with some very long par fours with not much run on the ball. Krung Kavee provides a good challenge in peaceful surroundings.
(challenging mature course near the city center)
Opened in 1969, Krungthep is one of the oldest courses in Bangkok. The course was renovated in 1996 and since that time, the condition has been generally very good. The course has narrow fairways with plenty of water hazards and many hidden out of bounds, so take your caddies advice on your shots! The course is 'members only' at weekends so play can be slow but it is well worth the effort to play midweek, so you can enjoy the well-manicured fairways and the native wildlife, including reptiles, fish and birds on nearly every hole.
(parkland layout with multiple tees & emphasis on shot making)
Established in 1993, the course has three good quality nine hole lay outs, with excellent water features and mature trees in natural surrounds. There is plenty of variety in terms of length, width, dog legs to the right and left. The fairways are mostly in good condition but the greens are generally a bit on the slow side and the rough is probably too punishing for the average golfer.
(challenging course with 'sea monster' island greens)
Opened in 2015, Lakewood Links is situated very close to Bangkok city. Thanks to it’s floodlighting, it has become very popular with locals for an after work round of golf. Although the course has been built on relatively flat land, it still includes typical links style challenges, such as sandy waste areas, dunes and rolling fairways, plus large undulating and multi-tiered putting greens.
(strong parkland layout & Asian Tour Q-School site)
This 36 hole Roger Packard design is one of the best in central Bangkok. Not overly long but both the East and West courses present a good challenge. The clubhouse is a little dated and needs a facelift, but the facilities are more than adequate with a nice restuarant overlooking the course.
(Jack Nicklaus design with interesting hole routing and large waste bunkers)
The only Jack Nicklaus designed course in Bangkok and an easy 40 minute ride from the city centre. Popular with Thai golfers, members and visitors alike, the course is generally in very good condition considering the amount of golf played here. Although it does get very wet and soggy in low season.
(perfectly conditioned and only Gary Player course in Thailand)
Opened in 2008, Lotus Valley is still regarded as a hidden gem, possibly due to its significant drive from Bangkok city centre. Originally designed by Gary Player in 1998, the course was later renamed by new management before being redesigned by the outstanding Jon Morrow. Once through the impressive entrance way, the well-trained staff go out of their way to make all visiting golfers feel welcome.
(well-maintained course with good variety is testing though enjoyable for all)
Probably the closest course to the centre of Bangkok. It does get very busy at times, but a lot of effort has been put into making it a top notch course. Fairways, bunkers and greens are always in great condition and apart from fairly long walks between the tees, the only critisism of the course, is the slow play so be prepared for a four and half hour round.
(beautiful Robert Trent Jones Jr. course; host of 1975 World Golf Championship)
Designed more than 40 years ago, this Robert Trent Junior course, still stands the test of time. From the 6,900 yards from the back tees, it remains one of the most challenging courses in Thailand. Although the World Cup was held here in 1975, championship golf is no longer hosted here.
(all-inclusive course & one of Bangkok's best)
Designed by Thai golf course designer and architect, Piraporn Namatre of Golf East, Nikanti is a unique 18-hole golf course. At 6,580 yards from the black tees, it is short in length compared to many other golf courses around Bangkok. Rather than having a traditional front and back nine, Nikanti is made up of three loops of six, each one starting and ending at the main clubhouse.
(premium course with pretty caddies at extra cost)
This 27 hole layout, located north east of Bangkok and designed by Ronald Fream in 1989, remains one of the most popular courses in Bangkok. The three nine-holes each have their own character (lagoon, palm and garden) and are generally in very good condition. The championship tees measure over 7,000 yards and for the average golfer the white tees are a perfectly good challenge.
(host of 1992 Johnnie Walker Classic & 1994 Thailand Open)
27 golf complex with the novelty of night golf here as well a Lodge and a Sports Club. Was previously one of the most famous courses in Bangkok and a must play for everybody. but it is now showing signs of age and is in need of a facelift.
(links-style course with a variety of challenging holes)
Opened in 2006 and designed by Dr Sukitti Klangvisai, this course offers day and night golf. The design is varied, if a little flat. Water comes into play on most holes along with huge bunkers.
(premium course with excellent greens and hole routing)
One of the newest additions to golf in Bangkok, Riverdale was opened in 2010 and designed by the well regarded Jon Morrow. Not the prettiest venue, surrounded by old industrial factories it will look better in a few years when the trees have grown. Built on old farm land, the course is laid out in a huge bowl which can get very hot due to the lack of wind but the modern clubhouse has fantastic views over the whole course.
(renovated and well-maintained parkland course)
One of the newer additions to golf in Bangkok, Rose Garden was reopened in 2012 after being flooded the year earlier. Large trees, new turf, and well-maintained facilities characterize Rose Garden Golf Club. The course is mainly flat as it plays through rice paddy land.
(challenging Schmidt-Curley designed course offering private country club golf experience)
This modern Schmidt-Curley designed golf course is located in Ayatthaya Province, north of Bangkok. The layout includes many memorable holes, incorporating elements of fun, such as a large variety of distances, large mounds flanking each hole, and many blinds shots into bunker-protected greens. Moreover, the clubhouse is designed in an elliptical shape so no two walls are parallel.
(well-maintained with slick greens, doglegs, and water hazards)
The closest course to Bangkok International Airport and set amonst a luxury housing development, Royal Golf & Country Club has the fastest greens in Bangkok. Established in 1993 and designed by Chohei Miyazawa. the course has water on nearly every hole meaning it is a course for the straight hitter! The Driving Range is basic but there are two large chipping and putting areas.
(riverside course with excellent facilities)
Royal Lakeside was set up as more of a recreational course than a championship venue. The greens are consistent and meduim paced. Water comes into play on more than half the holes as does the frequent breeze.
(challenging Pete Dye design)
Designed by Pete Dye in 1993. this is still one of the most underated courses in the Bangkok area. The fact it is great value for money makes it a little crowded at times, but it's well worth a visit to experience a Pete Dye design making great use of the water and bunkers.
(aging and artificial Nick Faldo design with nice clubhouse)
Designed by Nick Faldo in 1993, over the years Summit Windmill Golf Club has gone through several re-vamps although the clubhouse seems to be constantly under renovation. Nearly 7,000 yards off the back tees, this course has serious drainage problems in the rainy season so better to avoid playing it at this time of year. The course needs to be improved but given the fact that its open day and night, this seems unlikely to happen.
(strategic Trent Jones design with challenging green complexes)
Robert Trent Jones Junior designed this 36 hole facility in 1993. It recently underwent a complete renovation to upgrade the course to its former glory. Both courses are quite short by modern standards, but the Club has a quiet, relaxed feel and the well trained, polite caddies make it a pleasant golfing experience.
(championship course and site of 2010 Asian Tour International & 2011 Thailand Open)
Opened in 2005, Suwan Golf & Country Club is one of the newer courses in Bangkok. It initially experienced issues with its greens but this problem has long been rectified. This outstanding course hosted the Asian Tour International in 2009 and 2010.
(prestigious club has hosted PGA wins by Tiger Woods & Vijay Singh)
Denis Griffith designed this course in 1996. The Thai Country Club sets the standard that is the undisputed benchmark for others to follow. From the moment you enter the well manicured drive you sense you are arriving somewhere special.
(Greg Norman design with good variety)
Thana City Country Club is a Greg Norman designed course and amongst the best in Bangkok. Back in 2011, when the course and clubhouse were extensively renovated, the man himself re-opened the new look clubhouse. Over the years, the course has matured well and the fairways are normally in excellent condition.
(Bob McFarland course in upscale housing estate)
Thanont Golf View & Sports Club is on the outskirts of Bangkok and therefore one of the easier courses to get to. It is ideal for Bangkok golfers not wanting to travel too far. One of a handful of Bob McFarland courses designed in Asia, this course appeals to both the average and advanced golfer.
(challenging and exclusive course is well-maintained)
Royal Gems is styled as an English parkland course, designed by Roger Baird in 1992. The course is well maintained with good fairways and pristine greens that were once the largest in Thailand, although recently they have been reduced in size. The rough is not too difficult, but the large number of trees often block your shot to the greens.
(Augusta comes to Bangkok at Asia's first & only replica course)
A completely new concept for Thai golf and sure to be very popular in the future, this replica course features famous holes from all over the world. The front nine includes holes from Doral, Sawgrass, Troon and St Andrews.
(very good though little known Arthur Hills course; 1st class clubhouse too)
The Vintage Golf Club, designed by Arthur Hills in 1995, is one of the best and underated courses in Bangkok. Generally in excellent condition, close to the centre of the city, this course benefits from the cooling breezes off the Gulf of Thailand. The normal tees make the course a bit on the short side but the black tees will test any low handicapper and the four hole stretch from 12 to 15 is extremely attractive, with water features making driving accuracy a must.
(good layout with wide fairways in relaxing environment)
Just over an hour from Bangkok, Wangnoi Prestige Golf & Country Club is a well-priced, above average golf experience. Under new management in 2018, the former Muak Ake layout was re-grassed and the clubhouse renovated. The course is 7,238 yards with Zoysia grass fairways and ultra-dwarf TiffEagle greens.
(well designed parkland style course)
Windsor Park Golf Course is a sprawling 36 hole complex with a large clubhouse dominating this Ronald Fream design. Originally constructed in 1993 with three nines (Lagoon, Palm and Garden), in 2006, a fourth (Lakeside), was added. The C and D combination offers the best golf but do bear in mind that five and six balls are allowed here making round very slow at times, even with buggies.
