Emerald Golf Club since rebranding in 2006 has done a good job to improve course and playing conditions to its former international standard. Originally named Ban Chang and then Rayong Century Golf Club the course is set into the mountains just outside Rayong and near to Eastern Star.
Emerald Golf Club is nestled in amongst meandering hillsides and is laid out in a jungle setting. This course has some of the most beautifully designed holes on the Eastern Seaboard of Thailand. The 18-hole course is carved through a virgin forest of full-grown trees that make for excellent playing under mature conditions.
There are only a few water hazards, but continued undulated and narrow fairways and well placed bunkers as well as some difficult Par 3’s combine to make the Emerald Golf Club a challenging test of golf. Driving accuracy, as opposed to distance is the key to scoring well on the Emerald Golf Club.
The small but charming clubhouse with open-air restaurant provides nice time after the game. While not as famous as some of the other Pattaya golf courses, the excellent layout along with beautiful scenery makes the Emerald Golf Club a good play for any Pattaya golfer.
