An attractive scenic course
The club shares the same location with the St Andrews 2000 Golf Club and the Rayong Green Valley Country Club. It is distinctively named after a native of Australian tree that resembles a pine and is the main tree planted throughout the golf course. The backside of the leaf has the colour of silver grey that looks attractive in the wind.
Silky Oak is a regulation par-72 layout. However, it is conceptually different from other courses in that the 18 holes are based on 18 greens, but only 9 fairways. The shared fairways are extra-wide to accommodate holes playing in either direction and the greens are quite large as well. However, unique green complexes and severely undulating land require short game finesse to score well. Most holes on the course play to panoramic views of the surrounding hills. The half-way houses located on top of the hills have extra special breathtakingly scenery. Be sure to stop here between nines to really take in the magic of the area.
The clubhouse and other facilities at Silky Oak are adequate, but nothing special as compared to the golf course itself.
