Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - The Golf Life -

On the first day, we were in­tro­duced to Cas­cata Golf Club where the Bridge­stone Ama­teur Open 2017 fi­nal will be held. The 36-hole golf course was built and de­signed by the owner in 2006. The course adopts a rather flat and links-style char­ac­ter­is­tic.

The course is rel­a­tively flat and open with sig­nif­i­cant bunker­ing and an abun­dance of wa­ter on most holes. This is well com­pen­sated with the gen­er­ous fair­ways and straight for­ward de­sign.

The plus point were the fast greens which proved chal­leng­ing due to se­vere un­du­la­tions. Three-putting can be quite com­mon for the av­er­age golfer here.

One of my favourite holes was the dog leg par-5, 6th hole with a great view and in­ter­est­ing lay­out that re­quires sound course man­age­ment. Hole 3 is an is­land par-3 which can be quite chal­leng­ing.

Over­all, Cas­cata was fun to play on and is well-suited for Bangkok bound golfers who are look­ing for an easy round of golf in a nat­u­ral park-like sur­round­ing with clean air.

Fees: THB3,850 for 18 holes (green, buggy and caddy fees).
