The course was formerly a palm plantation; you can play while enjoying the exotic atmosphere of the tropics because of so many palm trees around the course. I felt that the course rating 74.0 is a little high due to the generous fairways. There are many water hazards that don' t come into play much but bunkers at each hole are strategically placed.

A dogleg to the right, long par 4. The view of the green and its surroundings is beautiful.

The narrow fairway with water on both sides extends from the tee to the green, so accurate shots are a must on this tough hole. Some 10 bunkers in total come into play on the tee and second shots.

A good par 4 with a pond on the left. The small green swings to the left with water on the front left, so a precise second shot is required.

A par 3 over water. It is not long but has well positioned bunkers around the green. A beautiful lake in front of the green, palm trees behind it and the blue sky combine to create a picturesque view.

It takes 50 minutes from Pattaya by car. The restaurant is comfortable and the food is delicious.
