This is a parkland-style course with few ups & downs, which lies in a valley surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. There are thousands of mature native trees, marked by creeks and well-designed water hazards. The main hazards are generally the mature trees that line both sides of the fairways. The course, following the slope of a natural creek, contains many ancient trees, demanding you precision and strategic placement off the tee. The course was designed by a local golf enthusiast, Dr. Sukhun. It is the most successful effort by someone, who although not a professional golf architect, had an intuitive understanding of what was required and utilized successfully the natural terrain without major modifications. Having a golf round here will be just walking in a big garden.

It remains quietly in the forest. Three trees in the front left of the green are in play.

A dogleg to the right. The landing area off the tee is narrow with a well-placed water hazard on the right. The second shot is over the water. A full carry is needed on the second shot as the front side of the green boarders the water. The green slops steeply from back to front.

A dogleg to the left with creeks on both sides of the hole. A winding creek, which hugs the left side from tee to green, becomes a blind lake cutting into the fairway 250 yards off the tee, which force a long hitter not to use a driver unless his shots are accurate. It also snakes across the driving line to pass behind 3 bunkers on the right. You should avoid these, and the second shot is slightly downhill. The green is gurded by bunkers on the front and behind and the ever-present creek on the left. The green is narrow & small and slopes from the right to the left.

A slight dogleg to the right. Accuracy on the tee and second shots is required as the relatively narrow fairway is protected by trees on both sides. Watch out for a water hazard on the right side of the green

It is a 40-minute ride both from Chiang Mai and airport. A hotel is adjacent. I could choose freely which tees to play from.
