Thai Golf Courses - Khao Khew Country Club

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.

played this course as an after thought, spare day,glad i did-i believe a good challange of your game some holes have water in your driving range off the tee keep it straight! fairways a little soft so little or no run on ball,greens slow but helps keep your line.overall glad i decided to play this course.

May be I had a little higher expectation as I know the reputation of the designer. The course is not as though as a usual Pete Dye design. The hole with the island doesn't give you a fright, when you see how big the target is. Pace of greens was rather slow. Still is interesting enough to spent a day here.

We play on 15th Oct., fairways are narrow, if you can drive on fairways, you will get reward. the 9th or 18th holes, if you drive 200yards over water hazzard, you can par on easily, even 2on. But greens are so fast, especially you played at Pattana 14th Oct.. Our group are 4 players, 2 of 4 caddies are students, one even only 15 years old,she knows nothing. old caddie is good, she will give you useful advice.Overall, it's a nice course in Pattaya area.

green speed is a bit slow cause from top soil, but over all condition is OK, however, green fee normal rate is too high!

played over the bank holiday weekend, a great course but totally useless management, i phoned up the day before to book, got on at 12.30 no problems or so i there 1 hour before teeoff only to be told that there was no caddies!!! what?? theres too many people playing today was the reply.....i ask you what a useless #$%%$# that is the worst organization i have ever experienced. the manager K.Supol was available for comment i expect he was hiding in his office.. i really felt sorry for the girls on reception who had to deal with all the angry customers..... Extremely poor management on this day!!
