18 Holes Golf Course

The Royal Chiangmai Golf Course was designed by Perter Thomson five times British Open Champion

The Designis reminiscent of a traditional British Parkland course with some interresting "links" additions.

The Course is heavily tree-lined and water hazards are in play on almost every hole. The "Rough" is True to the meaning of the word.

 

HOLE-COURSE
#
HOLE NUMBER : 1
396     PAR 4     HDC 11

PAR 4   A gentle  dogleg  to the  left with  a small  green  protected  by three pot bunkers. Play this  hole  down  the  right side  of the fairway  to avoid  the  coconut  trees  on the  left for a clear approach to a well guarded  green.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 2
361     PAR 4     HDC 17

PAR 4  Another  gentle  dogleg this  time  to the right,  a narrow  undulating  green is awaiting  your approach   shot just short  of the  fairway bunkers   for a low to  mid  iron approach to a tricky  but fun green. Do not miss the green to the right.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 3
160     PAR 3     HDC 9

PAR 3   A great  little par 3  with  a green  guarded  by several  deep pot bunkers,  water  to the right and back of the green. Due to the hole playing  slightly  down  hill take  one less club  than  what  you  would  normally hit this  distance.   Short of a deft  touch  with your wedges,  this green  must be hit to ensure par.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 4
438     PAR 4     HDC 1

PAR 4   A long  uphill par 4 that demands  a good  drive to have  any chance  of knocking your  2°ct  shot on the green.  If you  can't  make  it on the green  for two, the  best option  is to weave  your  approach shot past  the numerous fairway bunkers  to short  of the  green. This will leave you with a relatively simple  uphill  chip to a fairly flat green.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 5
563     PAR 5     HDC 5

Par 5    This hole demands  respect,  aim your  drive  at the two large trees  on the left side of the fairway and watch  your drive  drifts back towards  the middle  of the fairway.  This will  leave you  with  a mid to long  iron pass the slight  dogleg that  approaches the green. A simple  pitch, two putts and walk off happily  with a par.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 6
202     PAR 3     HDC 3

Par 3    This  calls  for  a well  struck  long  to mid  iron  to a well-elevated  green.  Given  a front pin placement, any shot to the back of the green will put you in 3  putts territory  on this back to front slopping green.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 7
358     PAR 4     HDC 13

Par 4    A short but well designed  Par 4. Bang your drive over the complexes of fairway bunkers  for a wedge  home.  For  the  conservative, take  a mid  to long  iron short  of the fairway bunkers,  your approach needs to be spot on to hold the small guarded  green.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 8
543     PAR 5     HDC 15

Par 5    Aim  your  drive  at the  single  coconut tree  in the  middle  of this  fairway.  This leaves  a long  iron  or a utility club to the approach to the green  if you  can avoid  several fairway bunkers.  A well-placed pitch will leave you with a great chance  at birdie.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 9
428     PAR 4     HDC 7

Par 4    The  ideal  drive  would  be just  short or to the right  of the fairways  bunkers,  but bunkered  green. Double check with your  caddie  on the  green  as this  green  offers a fair amount  of movement.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 10
397     PAR 4     HDC 6

Par 4 Thmental  test continues  on the backs nine.  Place  the tee shot well  short  of the creek running through the 10111 fairway. This will leave a fairly flat lie in which you can pepper the pin with your approach.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 11
172     PAR 3     HDC 12

Par 3 Nice  uphill par 3  that requires  soft hands  if the kidney shaped  green is  missed with the approach.  Double-check your line on this back to front slopping  3  'putt  able' green.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 12
565     PAR 5     HDC 16

Par 5 Birdie hole par 5.  Set up and whack the drive to the corner of this slight dogleg right hole. Pull out the three wood and have a go, but be sure not to miss it right.  Stiff a wedge from 50 yards after a good second shot and birdie is all yours.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 13
409     PAR 4     HDC 8

Par 4  A great hole. Take on the right hand side fairway bunker if you dare, this would leave a full wedge to a slippery green. If this hole is played in a conservative  fashion off the tee, be prepared for a long downhill approach, a par would be a great score.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 14
374     PAR 4     HDC 18

Par 4 Beautiful  short par 4 to have a go, but beware of the OB down a tight right-hand side. It is still a birdie chance if the tee shot is accurately placed between the two sets of fairway bunkers, leaving a nice wedge shot to a small green.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 15
584     PAR 5     HDC 4

Par 5 A long, real thinking par 5.  A good drive is needed to relieve some pressure from the second shot. Aim your second shot over the single palm with a slight draw to avoid the  set of fairway bunkers  on the right  hand  side.  Beware, anything short-left  of the single palm will find a watery grave.  From this approach, your third shot is all feel  into a relatively unsighted green, be happy to walk away with a par.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 16
418     PAR 4     HDC 14

Par 4 Avoid the bunkers down right and the deep rough to the left, this is a necessity if you are to hold this green with the approach.  Regardless  of the pin position,  aim your approach  at the front  section  of this  green,  as an aggressive approach  will not  hold. Don't let the look of simplicity from the tee fool you.

#
HOLE NUMBER : 17
173     PAR 3     HDC 10

Par 3 The signature  hole. A magical par 3 that requires a well struck mid to long iron to hold the wide, thin green.  Block out the water from your mind and launch  your tee shot high and long.  Miss it  anywhere,  and the only sight of the hole will  be the top of the flag. Many a great round was blown just by missing this green, is there really a good bogie?

#
HOLE NUMBER : 18
428     PAR 4     HDC 2

Par 4 A nice finishing hole that  is  not  set up to murder a good round as the previous hole has probably taken care of that. Knock the drive down the middle avoiding bunkers on the left while leaving it just short of the bunker to the right. This would leave a short to mid iron  approach  to a well-guarded  green. A huge bunker  would  eat up anything short. There is really such thing as an enjoyable par to finish the Par 72 round.
