Golf Clubs and Courses

in Central Western Thailand

Rail Track through the countryside in Kanchanaburi

What was once a wilderness is now a playground of several golf clubs set amidst the countryside in central western Thailand. While the town of Kanchanaburi may be better known as the world famous site in which the Bridge over the River Kwai was immortalized in books and movies, its jungles and wild beauty are now tamed and incorporated into superb resorts with just as many challenging golf courses.

The rugged natural beauty of the region is surrounded by spectacular limestone hills, fertile river valleys and expansive sugar cane fields. And all it will take to get to Kanchanaburi is a comfortable two hour drive by car or a relaxing three hour journey by train from Bangkok.

There are several golf clubs located fairly close to the town of Kanchanaburi and the infamous River Kwai. The 18-hole Par 72 Blue Sapphire Golf Course designed by Stephen Youdan and Anan Yomchinda opened in 2002 and measures 7,000 yards.

The 18-hole Par 72 Ever Green Golf Course measuring 6,879 yards, is another At Anan Yomchinda designed course which opened in 1994. And below you'll find a few more golf clubs around Kanchanaburi reviewed in greater detail.

Further afield in central western Thailand is the town of Ratchaburi where you will find several golf clubs such as the 18-hole Par 72 Dragon Hills Golf Course measuring 6,812 yards which was designed by Jim Engh and opened in 1994.

In the same town is the 18-hole Par 72 Royal Ratchaburi Golf Coursedesigned by At Anan Yomchinda. The course opened in 1992 and measures 6,975 yards.

Nichigo Resort and Country Club

Nichigo Resort and Country Club

Nichigo Resort and Country Club is situated near the banks of the River Kwai and has a magnificent limestone escarpment as a backdrop. The 27-hole Par 108 golf course measuring 7,141 yards is an awe-inspiring treat for the eye and a real challenge to your golfing skills. The course was designed by Mitsuaki Kabayashi and opened in 1992. With its well-stocked lakes masquerading as water hazards, the course is divided into three attractive nine-hole segments aptly named River, Lake and Mountain so as to reflect their principal topography.

The course is not overly demanding for those of you seeking a pleasing game in a pleasant setting. Should the heat of the day prove a tad torturous or you have stretched yourself to the fullest, there are refreshment huts at every third hole. The spacious clubhouse offers several amenities such as a swimming pool, a Japanese Jacuzzi pool, fishing opportunities as well as a driving range, a jogging track, a karaoke room, a snooker room and some excellent restaurants.

Barrington Saiyoke Sports Club

Barrington Saiyoke Sports Club is located within easy walking distance of the spectacular Saiyoke Waterfalls in Kanachaburi National Park. This beautiful 18-hole Par 72 golf course measuring 6,800 yards is also nestled in a bend of the River Kwai and offers splendid views of the surrounding tropical forests and the superb limestone ridges above them. The course is designed along English lines with its fairway threshold well wooded. Two of the holes are played over lakes.

Complementing this golf club is the stylish clubhouse which resembles one that you'd find in an English countryside. It offers a full range of facilities and amenities associated with sports and relaxation. There are several restaurants serving both European and Thai cuisine. And nearby is the Barrington Polo Club.

Milford Golf and Country Club

Milford Golf and Country Club nestled near the River Kwai is as much inviting as it is intriguing. Its stunning setting, will surely inspire you. The 27-hole Par 108 golf course measuring 9,966 yards is a real jewel and will appeal to golfers of every calibre. The three individual nine-hole courses are distinguished by their distinct characteristics which will ultimately depend greatly on your level of skill.

One of the courses is steep and hilly requiring power and precision. The second is gentle but demanding and the third is forgiving but precise. All around are water hazards provided by a number of tributaries from the River Kwai. Not only does the elevation of the clubhouse offer you excellent panoramic views of both the course and the surrounding hills, there is a variety of sports and relaxation facilities on offer as well as several restaurants in which to dine.

Mission Hills Golf Club

Mission Hills is one of a few golf courses in Thailand designed by Jack Nicklaus. This 18-hole Par 72 Kanchanaburi golf course measuring 6,364 yards was crafted along American PGA lines. So much so, the owners spared no cost in keeping up with an American theme even importing sand from USA for the bunkers.

The fairly flat terrain is riddled with sand traps offering some serious challenges. There are five well-spaced tees per fairway and five holes have double fairways giving two approaches to each green. The spacious clubhouse offers a variety of relaxation facilities including a range of sporting and dining alternatives.
