The Sawang Course features natural harzards, acres of lakes, multiple tees and slick Bermuda Tiff Dwarf greens.
Contoured Fairways, skilfully placed sand bunkers, hazardous lakes and mountainous ranges are harmoniously combined to create beautifully distinctive and challenging golf environment.
Sawang Resort & Golf Club is located 1 hour from Hin Hin in neighbouring Petchaburi province. Surrounded by rice fields and fruit tree orchids Sawang plays over rolling hills. The Hua Hin golf course a good alternative to the busier resort courses in Hua Hin itself.
The 27 hole layout looks like it has always been there with a mixture of both water and tree lined holes. Overall Sawang is an enjoyable course with generous fairways that appeals to all standards of player, but with a few surprises for the lower handicapper looking for some challenge.
The East - South combination is the best routing. Hole 2, a 535 yard dogleg par 5 is one of the better holes as is the 407 yard par 4 17th which plays over water to an island green.
A nice course to play in what is a quite rural setting. If you prefer playing with the locals rather than tourists then this is the course for you.
