An exclusive and challenging golf course
The Royal Gems Golf & Sports Club, known as "The Crown Jewel" of Thailand's golf course, is one of the best course in South East Asia. With a concept of "Whole in one", you will enjoy our challenging 18 hole par 72 of USGA standard plus prestigious Sports Club, Lodge and Condominium.
The course is located in a very pleasant and natural parkland environment west of Bangkok. Royal Gems plays to 7,107 yards and features a handful of lakes, narrow fairways, deep rough, large bunkers and fast greens. The member’s only course is one of most stylish of all the golf courses in the greater Bangkok area. Royal Gems has a mixture of American, Scottish and Thai features.
Overall, Royal Gems is a beautifully presented collection of golf holes, enhanced by top quality greens keeping. Although relatively flat, each hole has been individually sculpted and presents its own array of challenges, clearly visible from the tee. The par-5 holes are testing and three of the four par-3 holes require the tee shot to be hit directly over water to reach the green. Each hole is framed by trees to catch occasional wayward shots. Water is often in play, so too is the fairway and greenside bunkering.
Playing to 7,155 yards from the blue tees, the golf course layout features enormous area of deep blue lakes, wide and tree-lined fairways, deep rough, big bunkers and huge undulated greens. The whole estate consists of 250 plots of real estate with some of the most beautiful house in Bangkok, 55 units of super luxurious condo 214 units of deluxe condo and hotel.
Once you have made your way to the first tee you will find yourself challenged by a spectacular golf course lay-out. The designer wanted each hole to be so different that no two shots would be the same on any holes. To achieve this they have combined Thai, American and Scottish design features on to the course, including "grass bunkers" and the "stepped bunkers" which most local golfers will not have played before. These hazards are unique and challenging even to golf veterans.
The Prestige Sports club provides recreation and relaxation for your total well being. Complimenting the sports facilities are business centre and banquet hall for 200 people.
