Flora Ville Golf & Country Club
Flora Ville Golf & Country Club Details
18 holes par 72 (6747 yards)
With golfing star Nick Faldo at his peak, several Thai courses paid him to add his mark to their course, and back in 1998, aided by IMG Design, Faldo opened the Chuan Chuen Golf Club. This along with Summit Windmill is the only Bangkok-based golf course that the Masters champ has lent his name.
Found north of Bangkok, near the old Don Muang Airport, this 18 hole course is built in an expansive housing estate. Although close to the city, here your golf experience feels like a true country course with the numerous birds and old trees found along the way in a very peaceful setting. Players at various stages of playing golf will enjoy the woodlands at Chuan Chuen, with over 8,000 trees dotted around this 6,747 yard course.
Its fairways are kept in perfect condition and are characterized by water hazards on the side of most of its holes. To get a good score, players must make as accurate a tee-shot as possible because of the dogleg holes. Greens on this course are relatively flat, fast and small.
The 6th is a par-3 hole of 173 yards. It is among the course’s better holes. Depending on the direction of the strong prevailing winds, the hotel can play up to 3 different clubs. To succeed, players must steer clear of the water at the front, to the right and over the green, the deep bunkers. Getting yourself entangled in either of the two will lead to a bogey or something worse.
The 12th par-5 hole is short and tricky. The tee affords a view of the lake when the player looks on the fairway’s right. For a decent second shot, you need to be extremely accurate off the tee so that you can reach far enough to the left. A dogleg on the right which has water on its left allows players to approach the small green.
Other amenities on the course include the clubhouse as well as satisfactory facilities such as simple locker rooms along with a suitable Thai restaurant. Chuan Chuen offers golfers a memorable experience.
