Thai Golf Courses - Blue Canyon Country Club
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.
