Royal Golf & Country Club Details
18 holes par 72 (7054 yards)
If you are looking for a standard 18-hole golf course in Bangkok, then look no further than the Royal Golf & Country Club. To be more specific, this majestic golf course is just off Bangkok-Pattaya highway, so players from both cities can enjoy a round here, and it is also only 10 minutes away from Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
The Royal golf course is designed by none other than Chohei Miyasawa, who hails from Japan. His design preserves the natural and indigenous environment but still providing a very picturesque and refreshing feeling that assures players of all standards will enjoy every minute of their game.
The landscape design will take you away; from the beautiful flowers and many shade trees, undulating fairways together with tiered greens close to every hole, not to mention numerous canals that part each hole plus the entire golf course away from surrounding housing that is largely owned by the elite in Thailand. For instance, one can clearly view the backyard and home of the 2006 country’s prime minister therefore giving it an actual ‘Royal Golf’ encounter.
It boasts of having long par 3’s that are among the extremely challenging in the city of Bangkok. It also features a difficult 230-yard 17th matching up to others of its kind. The 14th, which is a 409 yard par 4, needs a pair of extremely long shots in order to make it to the green on regulation. The hole that follows, a par 5, gains its popularity from having a narrow fairway along with its landing area. This one requires 3 straight shots for one to evade the water that runs down on the hole’s left side.
The ‘Mickey Mouse hole’ is a par 4 hole 16 that is as tricky as they come. Its nick name comes from the sand bunker, which has two large prominent ears, resembling the renowned Disney character. The greenside in the Royal Golf & Country Club are among the best well-maintained in Bangkok rolling all around the year and score over ten on a stimpmeter.
The state of the art practice facilities along with excellent putting green, sand bunker, pitching green and not forgetting grass driving range available in the golf course, affords you the right place for you to have a before-game warm-up or even a practice session. An ambient and spacious clubhouse provides the much needed comfort and relaxation facilities after a match. This is definitely the place in Bangkok to lay over.
