Thailand Winter Golf Getaway
May – October 2017 | Thailand
SPRINGFIELD ROYAL COUNTRY CLUB
The Jack Nicklaus designed Springfield Royal Country Club is located off the Hua Hin bypass road near Cha Am. The course is rated as one of the best Hua Hin golf courses and the traditional Nicklaus layout is as good as they come.
The course at Springfield has been designed to meet the high demands of a recognized championship golf course, and yet it remains an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards.
Each hole has a minimum of five tees to play from, but only the brave, and those regularly rub shoulders with the world’s best will venture from the black tee. Water hazards regularly come into play and each hole presents its own individual challenge and character requiring finesse or unrestraint. Accuracy is required at all times as the rough is comprised of a series of hillocks and holes lined by a forest of mature trees.
Designer: Jack Nicklaus
Location: North of Hua Hin towards Cha Am
MAJESTIC CREEK COUNTRY CLUB
Majestic Creek Country Club is a challenging course that was once rated by a German golf magazine as a Hua Hin’s best golf course. This view is shared by many Hua Hin locals and expatriates. Designed by Dr. Sukkitti Klangvisai, an experienced Thai golf course designer who is also responsible for Phuket’s Loch Palm, Majestic Creek is arguably the best laid out golf course in Hua Hin.
Major renovations covering all 27-holes have been undertaken in 2012 including some of Hua Hin’s best Tifeagle turfed greens.
Majestic Creek Country Club is set in the foothills 20 kilometers west of Hua Hin. The journey towards the course offers rural views of Thai life including sugar cane, tapioca, and pineapple plantations and farms. Majestic Creek has natural surrounding scenery. Valleys in the nearby mountains supply water to the maze of streams winding around the course, and the builders have been careful to preserve them as natural hazards; which makes for some tricky shots over water.
Designer: Dr. Sukitti Klangvisai
Location: In foothills West of Hua Hin
BANYAN GOLF CLUB
Built among a pineapple plantation, Banyan Golf Club in Hua Hin opened in October 2008. Immediately following, the course was awarded 2009 Best New Course in Asia Pacific by the readers of Asian Golf Monthly. Since then Banyan golf course and clubhouse has consistently claimed ‘Top 3 in Thailand’ awards and been featured in the ‘Rolex Top 1000’ in the World.
The world class 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Thailand golf course architect Pirapon Namatra from Golf East and is known to be one of the best layouts in the country.
Designer: Golf East (Pirapon Namatra)
Location: 5 kilometers south of Hua Hin
BLACK MOUNTAIN GOLF CLUB
Black Mountain was transformed from lush jungle and pineapple plantations. It is set in a valley, just next to the “Black Mountain’s”, which are so named because of the large black rocks set into the mountains, providing a nice backdrop to many of the holes.
The Hua Hin golf course was the site for Asian PGA tour events in 2009 and 2010 and the Europe versus Asia match play Royal Trophy in 2011. In 2012 Black Mountain was selected as one of the 100 best golf courses outside the USA by Golf Digest magazine.

Location: 10 kilometers west of Hua Hin
