There are 36 holes including the AB course. The AB is longer and has wider fairways. The CD Course is a little shorter but water comes into play on 15 out of 18 holes, so the best strategy is accuracy rather than power play. A few holes have water on both sides of the fairway and at the back of the green. Especially, the back 9 holes are great and all of them are impressive.

A dogleg to the right par 4. There are double fairways and the left fairway is longer but wider. Some fairway bunkers are in play. There are several mounds in front of the green, which enhance the view of the hole.

A nice short par 4. You do not need to use a driver because of the narrow fairway with trees on the left and water on the right. The approach shot is over water.

Although this par 3 is also relatively short, it is pretty and demanding because the water is in play.

This is short par 4 where finding the fairway is crucial because both sides of the narrow fairway have water. The approach shot is over the water. Beautiful curves of the elevated green together with the lake and the bunker in front of the green make this a challenging but lovely hole.

The left side of the green faces water, so an accurate approach shot is required.
 
13th Par 5 529 yards
A great par 5 with water guarding the entire left side of the hole. The fairway is tight and it slopes from right to left, so each shot is demanding. The green is deep but narrow with bunkers and water on the left and mounds on the right. Another bunker guards the front right of the green.

The green is surrounded on three sides by water and bunkers. This hole is beautiful, too.

A difficult finishing hole with a dogleg to the right. The drive is over water and the fairway bunker on the left is in play. There is a creek crossing the fairway in front of the green and running through the left side of the green.

It takes a little over 1 hour by car from Central Bangkok.

The other Roger Packard designed course in Thailand is The Imperial Lakeview H&GC.
