Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - The Golf Life -

This stun­ning Robert Trent Jones link-style golf course is sit­u­ated just 25km from the Bangkok air­port. It is still rated as one the pre­mier golf course in the city.

For­merly known as the Pres­i­dents Club, the course re­cently un­der­went a makeover and is in very good con­di­tion with smooth and true rolling greens.

The rather flat course fea­tures gen­er­ous fair­ways, while the lay­out seems easy to tackle but don’t be fooled, balls caught in the rough may need more ef­fort than meets the eye. The greens are not al­ways overly large and are pro­tected by many bunkers, which places a big im­por­tance on ac­cu­rate ap­proach play.

A pleas­ant ar­ray of small­ish trees and gen­tle earth mound­ing pro­vides good sep­a­ra­tion and def­i­ni­tion to each hole, while the plen­ti­ful sup­ply of wa­ter cre­ates many haz­ards which you’ll need to ne­go­ti­ate.

I would rec­om­mend Su­varn­ab­humi Golf and Coun­try Club due to its ex­cel­lent lay­out with good fa­cil­i­ties, good food and good lo­ca­tion for tourists vis­it­ing Bangkok. Green fees start at THB1,599 (Mon­days and Wed­nes­days), THB1,799 (Week­days), THB1,599 (tee off af­ter 11am) and THB2,999 (tee off af­ter 11am on week­ends).
