GOLF COURSES PATTAYA

Pattaya, located about 1½ hours from Bangkok and about 1 hour from Suvarnabhumi Airport, is a lively seaside resort and a top golf destination.

The area offers more than 15 top golf courses, designed by 'golf greats' like Trent Jones jr., Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Ronald Fream and Desmond Muirhead - to name just a few.


BANGPRA INT. GOLF CLUB

One of the oldest courses in the area, it goes back to 1958 but was redesigned several times. A fine example of Japanese golf design, with lots of trees and lush tropical surroundings.

The Par-3 Rock Course near the gigantic clubhouse is fun to play.

PATTANA SPORTS CLUB
A new addition to Pattaya’s already fine collection of courses. It aims to become the most comprehensive sport complex of the area, with its 27 holes of golf, olympic-size pool and soccer field, amongst other amenities. Very challenging and demanding layout, will be a top course when grown in a little bit with more mature trees.

ST. ANDREWS 2000
Designed by the late Desmond Muirhead, it comes as close to typical Scottish links course as it gets. Remarkable are two Par 6 holes with more than 800 yards from the back tees.

Difficult but fair course; however, no fun for high handicappers.

THE EMERALD GOLF COURSE
Despite being a public course it is one of the most scenic and designed by none less than Nick Faldo and Desmond MUIRHEAD. A very appealing course, with very reasonable green fees, which unfortunately sometimes results in less than necessary maintenance; especially during the rainy season the course tends to get ‘muddy’. But is still worth a visit - the multi-tiered elevated greens are always in very good condition. Is fun to play.
