Lam Luk Ka Country Club, just a short drive from Bangkok’s thriving metropolis, sets the stage for a golf experience not easily forgotten. Both courses meander through Bangkok’s wetlands, where over 10,000 trees and water ways provide homes to over 100 species of birds and wildlife.
The Championship East Course places a premium on driving the ball long and straight. Host of the 2002 Thailand PGA Championship, Lam Luk Ka Country Club’s East Course will punish errant golf shots, but make for an enjoyable round if played from the somewhat friendlier white tees. The back nine is considered one of the best in Thailand, ending with a dramatic risk-reward Par 5. Lam Luk Ka Country Club’s Championship East Course remains one of Thailand’s most challenging layouts.
The West Course is relatively short, but water comes into play on 15 holes making course management a key factor in scoring. Every hole provides several options, so longer hitters can still hit driver although it’s not necessary on most holes. The West Course is a favorite of tourists and recreational golfers, and is home to a plethora of native birds and wildlife.
