The golf courses
The Lotus Valley Golf Resort:
The Lotus Valley Golf Resort was designed by Gary Player. The golf course has two conventional loops of nine holes adding up to a championship length of 6,955 yards from the tips and a par 72. Every hole represents its own individual challenge and affords both an easy path to the green for par or a more risky route for a birdie chance. Water comes into play on every hole to some degree or another. True to Player’s style and in leaning towards the traditional Scottish design, close cut fairways and fringes feature around the greens.
The Riverdale Golf Club:
Designed by Jonathan Morrow and Al Tikkanen, Riverdale Golf Club is destined to become one of the most celebrated Bangkok golf courses. The landscape includes several large lakes which were dredged to create the hills that surround the golf course and frame most of the holes. Once you’ve fired your opening tee-shot at the gently sloping downhill opener, the challenges and considerable charm of these immaculately groomed links will quickly assert themselves.
The Royal Gems Golf City (Dream Arena Course):
The Royal Gems Golf City is Asia’s first replica course and combines 9 of the best holes in the world with the back nine of Augusta National. Stepping onto the first can transport you, not just to holes you’ve never played, but to holes you wish you could. Imagine teeing off at Oakmont’s #3 with the famous church pew bunkers to your left. Then step onto the Royal Gems City #2 – a replica of Bay Hill Florida’s narrow-fairway, curving-around-water par-5 sixth – brings risk-reward drama; with the emphasis on risk.
The Thai Country Club:
Thai Country Club is one of the best in Bangkok as it sets the standard for service excellence. The design adapts to everyday member use up to very tough challenges for major international and PGA tournaments. The 7,157-yard course was the venue for the 1997 Asian Honda Classic, where Tiger Woods cruised to a comfortable 10-stroke victory after shooting a final round of 68 for a 20 under-par total of 268 for the championship. The Thai golf course as expected is well-maintained year-round, features a great variety from hole to hole, and an abundance of water hazards and sand bunkers. The fairway and greenside bunkering is superb, almost like a work of art.
The Suwan Golf & Country Club:
The Suwan Golf & Country Club situated among rural villages which add to the course’s uniqueness. Surrounding fruit orchards, rice fields, palm trees, and lotus ponds, the course has a tropical-Thai character which is most appreciated by both golf professionals and golf holidaymakers alike. Fairways give many uneven lies and many of the greens are well bunkered. There are many holes with significant elevation changes where level fairways play up to built-up and well-guarded greens.
Golden palaces, floating markets, majestic porcelain-laid spires… You’ve never seen a capital city quite like Bangkok. Bangkok is a large city known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. The floating market is a great place to enjoy the atmosphere of the country, boats are still piled high with tropical fruit and vegetables, fresh, ready-to-drink coconut juice and local food cooked from floating kitchens located right on the boat.
