One of the Top Courses in Asia - Hosted The Johnnie Walker Classic
This award winning golf course, famous for hosting The Johnnie Walker Classic has been ranked as one of the most prestigious in Asia. The undulating fairways are carved through a landscape of wooded hills which have a mix of natural hazards and freshwater lakes. Measuring 7,179 yards off the championship tees the course has many memorable holes. The most famous is the intimidating 390 yards par four thirteenth, where Tiger Woods successfully drove the green in 1998. The holes are built along the edges of canyons and are designed to blend in with the natural landscape. This championship course is an unforgettable golfing test for the well travelled and discerning golfer.
Surrounded by freshwater lakes and in harmony with the earth, the Canyon Course brilliantly features natural hazards, towering trees, multiple tees, rolling fairways, long carries, narrow landing areas and well-guarded slick Bermuda Tiffdwarf greens. As its name “Canyon” suggests the holes are built along canyon edges with undulating fairways and greens.
The course also has an intriguing mix of narrow tree-lined fairways requiring accurate tee shots and a number of doglegs demand precise shot making together with a selection of demanding Par 3s and large, fast, and very true greens. Players have found that each and every one of the 18 holes has its own characteristic which makes it memorable for them.
Bearing the proud signature of natural canyons: Holes 13, 14, and 17 are significant as they are built on existing canyon structures that suddenly plunge into deep waters. Hole 13, christened "The Tiger Hole" after Tiger Woods' supreme "one-on" shot across 270 yards, past the great canyon from the black tee to the green, is our hole of legends. Our supermodel of a hole, number 14, has won the hearts of many players and been the dramatic backdrop to many ecstatic holes-in-one. Hole 17, the longest par-3 in Thailand, and awarded "Top 500 Best Holes in the World", is a quiet beauty that seldom yields to a golfer's game, but occasionally allows for a hole-in-one.
