Panya Indra Golf Club
Panya Indra Golf Club Details
27 holes par 72/36 (7260 yards)
1991 brought with it the opening of the 27-hole Panya Indra Golf Club. This club, located to the North of Bangkok in the area of Ram Indra, is one of Ronald Fream designs.
Possibly one of the busiest courses in the region with night golf here too, expect to experience some great golf challenges.
The club can be accessed off the Outer Ring Road making it very accessible from the center of Bangkok. The Panya Group opened this golf course as its first masterpiece and now has a few other courses in Thailand.
The club is made up of three 9-hole championship courses. Each of these courses has its own unique design and setting. The names of the courses are Palm Course, Garden Course and Lagoon Course. The general layout of the course is breathtaking. The landscape is filled with shrubs, bushes and colorful flowering plants. Palm trees line the fairways and every hole at Panya Indra features ponds and lakes which come into play. The natural feel of the course is further enhanced by the lines of the fairways and the bunkers that appear like they are curved out of the ground.
Testing holes and smooth contours await any players who try out one of the three courses i.e. the Lagoon course (A). The Palm course (B) or the Garden course (C). All three courses have a water feature but the Lagoon has more than the other two. Some of the interesting features at Panya Indra include the undulating fairways.
The courses pose various challenges the biggest of which are the par-3 holes. Players on these holes will need to hit over water on four different occasions. The par-3 4th hole of the Palm course has an exceptional island green. The dogleg holes on each of these nines are also quite challenging.
Open fairways are to be found on the courses along with holes that have bunkers overrun by clover leaves, a feature that is seen on the way to the testing and attractive greens. The lack of flat spots on all of the 27 putting surfaces causing putts to go in a many different directions. These putting surfaces sometimes of a small size. The fairways, with all the smooth contours, add to the uniqueness of each hole.
They have a large number of experienced caddies, some moonlighting from the nearby university. You can pay one price for caddie and cart to stay on the pathways and a higher rate if you want to drive onto the fairways. Rumour has it that the prettier caddies drive onto the fairways!
The course is well maintained all year round. It is popular among Thai government officials and business executives. Golfers who wish to play at night can do so with the help of the floodlights that are used on the course. The clubhouse has various facilities, restaurants and locker rooms are the also keep in line with the standards of the course.
