Thai Country Club
Superb service at this immaculate course – the site of one of Tiger Woods many victories. There are no better places to start than the world class Thai Country Club. Despite its difficulty, it is widely regarded as one of the best courses in the whole of Thailand by experienced golfers, due to its variety of holes and perfectly manicured fairways. Designed to US PGA international standards by Denis Griffith, numerous water and sand hazards, combined with a course length of between 6,105 and 7,157 yards, makes the Thai Country Club an endlessly challenging course for even the world’s leading players. The course certainly requires excellent game management partly due the way the course has been sculpted with plenty of bumps and hollows and it is difficult to believe that this area was once flat. The fairway and greenside bunkers are very well positioned which demands careful shot making. If you do get offline, you can usually find your ball quite easily although the clingy semi-rough makes returning to the fairway that little bit more difficult.
You will really notice the difference when you are off the course as the club is managed by the Peninsula Hotel Group and the quality of the service and food is such as you would expect from a 5-star hotel. Location: 50km north of Bangkok in the Chachoengsao province. Birdies: Excellent buffet lunch is the perfect complement to a fantastic course. Bogeys: Closed every Monday Favorite hole: Signature Par-3 6th was named the best Par-3 in Asia from 2001-2006
