Bangpakong Riverside Country Club
- Bangpakong Riverside Country Club Details
18 holes par 72 (6685 yards)
Halfway between Bangkok and Pattaya along the Bangpakong River is the Bangpakong Riverside Country Club. The first course to be opened in the area back in 1990, the Bangkok-Pattaya golf corridor now has as many as 29 courses among them being the Bangpakong course.
Even though it is currently mostly used by high handicappers, this course was once recognized as the most popular course in Asia and among the best in Thailand. It shouldn’t be mixed up with the Royal Lakeside course which is situated near the Bangpakong and is considered to be better.
Keeping with its mandate to conserve the indigenous ecosystem, the Bangpakong Riverside management team ensures that the maintenance of the course is ‘green’. This practice has resulted in a clean fresh golf course as well as indigenous fauna and flora found all around the course. Overall, Bangpakong Riverside grounds are almost completely flat amidst big paddy fields. It has very wide fairways which sometimes appear to be long and wide. This feature makes this course ideal for first-time golfers. Advancing on the course is further simplified by the rough fairways which allow balls to sit up high.
The Bangpakong River brings prevailing winds to the course. These winds allow for long plays on holes which play into them, adding an additional yardage. This is especially useful on par-3 holes which have carries, distances of 200 yard and water which make play a bit tougher. Some holes are characterized with blind shots over lakes and trees. The river flows along the entire course and features in throughout the game.
The course also has a large old fashioned clubhouse, driving range and practice area.
