Krungthep Kreetha Sports Club
Mature Golf Course near the centre of Bangkok

Krungthep Kreetha G.C. was developed 29 years ago and is one of the best known courses in Bangkok. The course is located approximately 30 minutes North East of the City Centre. In 1996, the entire course was renovated including the club house. The course layout brings many water hazards into play, these coupled with mature trees and numerous OB's means accuracy is the order of the day.

Most holes feature water and OB on one or both sides of the fairway. Assuming you do find the fairway off the tee, the accurate approach shots are also a must due to the many water hazards and greenside bunkers The par 3's are short, but very difficult to hold the putting surface.

The greens are deceiving and somewhat difficult to read. The Par 4 1st can ruin any chances of a good score very quickly, and the Par 5 2nd is equally difficult with a narrow fairway and water hazards on both sides.

The Krungthep Kreetha club house, also renovated together with the golf course is rather grand and boasts an excellent Thai restaurant. Complete practice facilities including an often empty public driving range are also on the Krungthep Kreetha site.

Krungthep Kreetha golf courses' close proximity to downtown Bangkok makes this course popular with members, locals, and businessman, so early tee time bookings are suggested.
