Mountain Creek Golf Resort and Residence
Mountain Creek Golf Course is Thailand’s only Seve Ballesteros designed golf course. Nestled in the mountains on 1,750 Rai, 200km north-east of Bangkok, this 27-hole golf course is spread out over three nine-hole loops, namely the Highlands, Creek and Valley loops. Creek and Valley are widely considered to be the most interesting.
The Mountain Creek golf course is a challenge for most golfers. Hazards are strategically positioned to lure in shots from every angle. Dense jungle frames many of the holes forcing you to keep the ball down the centre to avoid costly penalties. Be prepared to use every club in your bag, given that holes play to various distances from a short 330 yard par-4, to a monster 550 yard par-5.
Resort facilities are good and include a large clubhouse, numerous practice areas, a pro shop and locker rooms. The Clubhouse acts as a kind of hub with all three nines starting and finishing close to it. A small resort with other sports and spa facilities is also part of Mountain Creek.
