Khao Kheow Country Club Description: (popular Pete Dye design)
The Khao Kheow 27-hole golf course is located in the heart of the Pattaya golf corridor on the way to Bangkok and the Suvanabhumi International Airport. Like so many of the Eastern Seaboard’s courses the Khao Kheow Country Club is set in a valley between 2 hills and strong sea breezes are prevalent most afternoons. The course plays quite long and the elevation changes between holes is a welcome differentiating point compared to the other flatter courses in the surrounding area.
In typical Pete Dye design fashion, careful shot making is required to overcome not only the windy conditions but also to take into account the numerous large ponds, bunkers and hills that surround the well-manicured fairways. Greens are heavily undulating which makes precise putting a key to scoring well. Special emphasis on green maintenance insures year-round good putting conditions, which helps Khao Kheow Country Club stand out from the other Pattaya golf courses.
The course really has something for everyone. In particular, the signature par-three seventeen, which plays to an island green will make both amateurs and professionals fell like they are golfing at TPCC Sawgrass. The first 18 have been designed as a championship course and have been renovated in 2013. The final 9 holes are easier, more like a resort course. Playing all 27 holes is a good option for those who would like to enjoy the variety of holes, elevations, and settings.
Those who play all 27 holes can look forward to relaxing at the well-appointed clubhouse after their rounds. The restaurant serves all Thai golfers favourites like spring rolls, minced pork with basil, fried rice, and a wide selection of noodle soups.
Overall Khao Kheow is one of the best values of all Pattaya golf course and ranks as one of the top Pattaya area courses, therefore making it a good choice for inclusion in any Pattaya golf package. Carts are optional, which also helps to keep costs low and affords all golfers a choice of walking or riding.
