Navatanee Golf Course
Navatanee Golf Course Details
18 holes par 72 (6902 yards)
Opened back in 1973, the Thailand golf revolution got a big boost when Navatanee Golf Club was awarded the opportunity to host the 23rd World Cup of Golf in 1975 by the International Golf Federation. The winners of the tournament were the US team whose members were Johnny Miller and Lou Graham.
Then in 1999, Navatanee was the chose venue for the Thailand Open. Also in 1999, Golf Digest USA recognized Navatanee as the top course in Thailand.
The course today brings together a sense of peace and quiet along with the challenge of the golf course. The course is has a lot of natural beauty brought about by the Rosewood and ‘Flame of the Forest’ trees and the fairways which are lined with a wide variety of bougainvillea.
This course is still the top ranking course in Bangkok. It is situated very near downtown Bangkok and with the passing years it has only become better. Its beauty is one of a kind when compared with other courses in the city. On weekends only members have access to the course. However, international golfers can use the course during the week.
Maintenance on the course has been kept at an all-time high. The caddies available are well trained and will assist you with everything you need. The course from the black tees designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. will challenge even the most experienced golfers in Thailand.
The par-3 17th and the par-4 16th are seen at the entrance of the course. They offer a breathtaking view of what lies ahead for prospective players. The course is made more interesting by a few holes that are spread throughout. The par-4 5th, though short at 329 yards is one of the most challenging holes. The par-5 9th is around the water. These holes are among the favorite for many players.
To reach the green from the par-5 6th hole which is 445 yards calls for players to draw from the tee. Achieving par on this whole is somewhat of a challenge because of the water which is found on the left of the fairway and fronting the green. Conquering this whole is a major accomplishment.
Navatanee Golf Club has a clubhouse which houses an outdoor restaurant. This restaurant oversees the 9th and its menu includes dishes from the locality. They renovated their changing rooms in 2015 which are now first class. The kiosks located on the course offer a number of drinks and snacks. Visitors to the club should note that there is no driving range.
If you want to have the experience of a private country club in Thailand, Navatanee is the place to go. Players must hire a golf cart making play fast. Its high price range ensures that only a select few can use its facilities.
