Beautifully landscaped with eucalyptus, bamboo and bushes, the Phoenix Golf and Country Club utilizes wooded, rolling terrain on its three nines – Ocean, Lake and Mountain. Although fairways are narrow, the greens are most spacious and the middle nine is one of the most playable in the kingdom due to its large amount of water hazards. Hole 17 – a very tough par – four – dog – legs around the lake and has left some of Asia’s most experienced golfers in serious trouble. Excellent clubhouse utilities and a sports complex make this one of the best courses on the Eastern Seaboard.

This 27 – hole golf course is situated along route 36 heading towards Pattaya and takes about 80 minutes to reach from central Bangkok. Like so many of the Eastern Seaboard’s courses the Khao Khew Country Club catches a strong sea breeze thus players have to plan their shots carefully on account of the numerous large ponds, bunkers and hills that surround the greens and fairways. The course really has something for everyone. In particular, watch out for the par – three seventeen, it’s a killer for both amateurs and professionals and relies on the golfer having a certain amount of luck on his/her side. The first 18 have been designed with a stadium championship course, while the back 18 are definitely more geared towards a resort course. Those daring enough to do the whole lot in one day can look forward to relaxing at the lush clubhouse afterwards, which incorporates a sports club, swimming pools, hotel accommodation and tennis courts in its design.

Recently immortalised in Thai golfing history by Tiger Woods' win at the 1997 Honda Classic Invitation Tournament here, the Dennis Griffiths designed Thai Country Club is now almost certainly destined to become the home of some Asia's most important golfing events. At only 35 km. along Bangna-Trad highway, the course easily accessible from Bangkok and the Eastern Sea Board, and with it tournament history and challenging layout is definitely to be enjoyed. Following a recent redesign, the course is renewed for its attention to detail-the grass was imported from Hawaii and grown locally-and really is on of the finest in Asia.

This spectacular Jack Nicklaus designed championship course truly is one of Thailand’s finest. The 27 – hole – Mountain, Lake and Creek nines – Laem Chabang International Country Club is located in Sriracha, approximately two hours away from Bangkok and is well worth the visit. The rolling hills of the surrounding countryside have been used to great effect, and hazards to stop you reaching the large elevated greens are in abundance. Not only does the course have a lot of bunkers, sand traps and water hazards, there is also a lot of natural hazards in the shape of exposed rock formations, lakes ponds and creeks. Excellent clubhouse facilities and accommodation superbly complement all of this.
One of the most prestigious courses in Asia , the 18-hole Blue Canyon Country Club was developed I 1991 to a design by Yoshikazo Kato. This beautiful course hosted Thailand's leading golf tournament, The Johnnie Walker classic, in 1994 and 1998 and relies on well guarded greens, narrow landing areas, island greens and rolling fairways for its hazards. Most famous of the course's holes are the par three 14th (island) hole, where players have to hit a perfect tee shot onto an island, and the par-4 14th (The Canyon) where players have to use a hard drive to clear the obstacle. A course of such splendid stature is, of course, accompanied by a large and opulent clubhouse offering splendid views of the fairways and greens.
