Nikanti Golf Club

All-inclusive course & one of Thailand’s best

Nikanti Golf Club stands as a distinctive 18-hole masterpiece nestled in the scenic Nakhon Pathom province, just west of bustling Bangkok. Crafted by the innovative Thai golf course designer and architect Piraporn Namatra of Golf East, Nikanti Golf Club introduces a golfing revolution on multiple fronts.

Unlike the typical city courses, Nikanti offers a breath of fresh air amid former rice paddies. Its unconventional approach begins with the yardage, measuring a concise 6,850 yards from the black tees. However, the real game-changer lies in its layout. Eschewing the traditional front and back nine, Nikanti comprises three unique loops of six holes, each commencing and concluding at the central clubhouse. Each circuit cleverly integrates two par-3s, two par-4s, and two par-5s. This equal distribution of hole types, although somewhat unconventional, invites golfers to relish a diverse range of challenges throughout their round, maintaining the allure of a par-72 experience.

The abundance of par-3 and par-5 holes grants golfers ample scoring opportunities, yet Nikanti remains a formidable challenge, even for seasoned professionals. Its sprawling fairways, adorned with undulating mounds and elevation changes, eschew flat lies as the exception rather than the norm. Meanwhile, greens flaunt dramatic undulations, speed (especially on downhill putts), and are often vigilantly guarded by intricate bunker complexes. Water hazards come into play on numerous holes, particularly the enticing par-5s.

While Bangkok's golf courses are often critiqued for their lack of elevation changes, Nikanti defies this norm. Club selection is further complicated by the prevailing winds sweeping through the course's valleys. Nikanti rewards precision over sheer distance, with many holes within reach for under-par scoring.

The modern clubhouse at Nikanti Golf Club offers a multitude of amenities typically associated with private members' clubs. Full-length lockers, gourmet dining options, an observation deck, and a lounge featuring satellite TV create an atmosphere that makes you forget you're at a daily fee public golf course. Exemplary service standards include 15-minute tee times to ensure a brisk pace of play, a cashless transaction policy, and complimentary local beverages and two meals. All in all, Nikanti Golf Club stands tall as one of Thailand's premier golf courses, offering a truly unique and exceptional golfing experience in the heart of Asia.
