Chuan Chuen Golf Club
Chuan Chuen Golf Club Details
18 holes par 72 (6747 yards)
1998 brought with it the opening of the Chuan Chuen Golf Club. This is among the few Bangkok-based golf courses that has been designed by Nick Faldo. Found north of Bangkok, near the old Don Muang Airport the course is built in an expansive housing estate. The golf experience on this course is made even more natural by the numerous birds and old trees found on it.
Players at various stages of playing golf will enjoy the woodlands at Chuan Chuen. 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.
