Cascata could be the nearest you get to playing a Scottish Links course in Thailand
An excellent links-style course which now offers a 72-hole layout and a Scottish style links experience. Course is in great condition and is a very interesting challenge with generous fairways and numerous water hazards.
The A course on Cascata Golf Club starts with a challenging dogleg par-4 with water all the way down the right side and a green protected by several bunkers including a large beach-style bunker beside the water. This is closely followed by a short par-3 with the same stretch of water protecting the right side. The rest of the course continues in the same vein with water down one side or the other of nearly every fairway and often coming across in front of the tee boxes or greens.
There is not much respite on the B course with more of the same and to add to the challenge there is very heavy bunkering lining many fairways and alongside the water.
The first hole on the C course is a long par-5 with water crossing the fairway and the next hole has a long carry over water. The short par-3 4th hole features an green almost totally surrounded by water and the 5th has a an island fairway which is totally surrounded by the water hazard. This theme continues for the rest of this course so you will need plenty of balls!
A brand new D course has just opened and we have not had time to experience it yet.
Cascata Golf Club is an excellent layout and has become even better with the addition of the new nine holes. Although there is a lot of water the fairways are quite generous so unless you are evry wild you should have an enjoyable game.
Cascata Golf Club has a hacienda-style clubhouse with excellent modern facilities and good food.
If you are thinking of including Cascata Golf Club in your golf break in Thai Golf Holidays can help you to book your chosen tee time here and at the other golf courses in Bangkok.
