Springfield Golf Club  (18 holes par 72)  -- 3 Rounds

 




 

Opened in 1993, Springfield is a championship course in the true sense of the word.   With five sets of tees to play from the course offers varying degrees of difficulty.  Be prepared for some long carries if you are brave enough to play from the back markers (7063 yards). The design is classical Jack Nicklaus with large areas of sand and well-appointed water hazards.  The course is exciting and offers a fair challenge when played from the standard tees.  It is one of the best maintained courses in thailand and has a clubhouse with luxurious facilities as well as an excellent restaurant.

 

 

Majestic Creek Country Club (18 holes par 72) -- 2 Rounds




 

Also opened in 1993, home of the Thailand World Pro Am the same year. Majestic is the latest of the new courses to open and is already winning the heart of many local and visiting golfers.  The road to the course passes through rural Thailand and farming communities abundant in tropical fruits.  Set beneath a backdrop of the mountain range dividing Thailand from Myanmar, the course is bisected by a maze of streams creating many natural water hazards.  There are some excellent golf holes that are both challenging and demanding and require good golfing skills to achieve par.  Golf course maintenance is good and the friendly staff add the final touch to an enjoyable round of golf.

 

 

 

Lake View Princess Resort & Gof Club  (27 holes par 72)  -- 2 Rounds



 

Designed by Roger Packard, Lake View is another excellent championship course which has been designed to convey a sense of adventure.  The greens are often hidden from the tees but the well defined fairways between large mounds and well-placed bunkers produce a succession of outstanding golf holes.  There are thousands of mature palm trees scattered throughout the course and water hazards come in to play regularly.  The well guarded greens often have interesting borrows and are a good test of courage and putting expertise.  The spacious clubhouse has first class amenities including a 75 room hotel with swimming pool overlooking the 18th green.  Course maintenance is always very good.
