WHERE TO GO FOR THE BEST GOLFING EXPERIENCE IN PATTAYA
Where to play golf in Pattaya? That’s easy. Siam Country Club has four golf courses that together provide the golfing enthusiast with the best golf experience to be had in Pattaya. With the addition of the Rolling Hills Course, Siam Country Club has expanded its repertoire of golf courses to offer every golfer a varied choice of golfing experiences to choose from.
Siam Country Club has had a long and successful partnership with the Honda LPGA Thailand, that has seen them hosting the Thailand leg of the tour a record twelve times since 2007. This underlines the quality of the golfing experiences that are offered by these four magnificent courses under the Siam Country Club banner.
The Old Course
The venerable Old Course is the first course launched by Siam Country Club. This I. Izumi-designed course was recently renovated by Mr. Lee Schmidt of Schmidt-Curley Design Inc. to improve the playability of the course further. The fairways were replanted with Seashore Paspalum grass, and Novotek grass was chosen for the greens.
The Plantation Course was so named for the Pineapple, tapioca and sugar-cane plantations in the vicinity. This hilly course with several elevated tees offers not only a superb round of golf but a panoramic view of Pattaya and the Gulf of Thailand as well.
Schmidt-Curley Design Inc. designed the course, and it also features the only triple-greens on the continent of Asia. The golf course was immediately attractive to professional golfers. Only one year after it opened in 2008, it was chosen as the golf course to stage the Honda LPGA Thailand. The course was also chosen “the best maintained golf course in Asia” by Asia Golf Week Magazine.
The aptly named Waterside course was designed by IMG and features lakes, ponds, and creeks in play on several of the holes. Laid-out around a large lake, the final three holes on both the front and back nine have water features. This wide-open course also features a 600-yard, par-5, 18th hole that will reward long-hitting golfers with the option of cutting the dogleg across the lake to lay up in two.
A spectacular, modern clubhouse offers a fully-equipped pro shop with all the latest gear to lower your handicap. With both a practice range and an 18-hole, miniature putting golf course adjacent to the clubhouse, the Waterside course offers 5-star facilities for the serious golfer.
The Rolling Hills Course
The newest course under the Siam Country Club banner is the Rolling Hills Course. This Brian Curley-designed course from Schmidt-Curley Design Inc. offers a back nine that is laid-out across gently rolling hills and provides golfers a change in elevations to maintain interesting play.
The featured hole on the course is the par-5, 15th, which provides the greatest challenge in reaching the green because it is ‘guarded’ by “the wall of death”. This ‘wall’ is a series of bunkers that punish golfers shooting short or long. Luckily, the hole has a forgiving option to bailout to the right of the green that saves a lot of frustration for a lot of golfers.
The final three holes climb a hill providing cooling breezes and a great view of Pattaya and the Gulf of Thailand in the distance before dropping back down to the level of the clubhouse.
Multiple Clubhouses Offer a Range of Venues
Each of these four courses has a magnificent clubhouse as well featuring a restaurant offering both Thai, Japanese, and international foods as well as bars and banquet services. All the clubhouses are available for weddings, parties and business functions.
