Thai Golf Courses - Laem Chabang Country Club

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.

Simply the best I have seen in Thailand. The course was in a super. "Just try it, and for sure you will love it". Only one 'negative' thing.......it's not located in Bangkok.

We were 2 flights comprising of golfers from Spore, and fellow friends from Thailand. Of the 3 courses that we played on this golfing holiday, Laem Chabang (LC) was Tops! Unfortunately it rained quite heavily during our first 6 holes, and then there was a big private tournament on that resulted in we being pushed around a bit. However we managed to play all 27 holes. Jack Nicklaus has done a superb job in design the course - all 27 holes have their own unique design and challenges. Fairways were well kept (rough are really tough to get out of!), and the greens were in excellent condition. The course has lots of slopes and undulations, and lots and lots of water! You better bring lots of balls with you if you choose to play at LC. The Valley course is the most difficult, challenging and a pleasure to play. Even though I did not play well I thoroughly enjoyed the day at LC. Highly Recommended; MUST play if you are golfing in Bangkok/Pattaya. In my humble opinion, LC is as good as, if not better than the more popular Blue Canyon course in Phuket.

I played here 5 times,I still think it's the best course in Thailand, even in Asia. We stayed 1 night and played 18 holes, and had dinner and breakfast, it's worthy.

Very intersting design,good challenge to all levels of golfers.Fairway grass not so healthy but greens putt better than they look,New bunker sand is shocking,stick to the old firm stuff.Restaurant band is pure cheese,what are you thinking! Potentially the best course and resort in Thailand but a long way to go.Well worth a game though,good value sport day Tue+Thur.
