The only course in Thailand designed by Arnold Palmer
The course features many elevated tees, plus large, gently sloping greens that roll rather fast, especially when you are above the hole. Ranging from six feet to 25 feet above sea level, ample fairways, big greens and not too much water deliver entertaining golf for the average player. The course is located near the seaside, only 1.6 miles from the Gulf of Thailand, providing pleasant breezes to keep you comfortable even during the hottest of days. Those same winds can sometimes be tricky and require adjusting your club selection and ball flight path. There are fewer water hazards than at most Bangkok Golf courses but the course is still challenging without being too difficult for the majority of players.
