Navatanee Golf Course is an exclusive course. It was built in 1973 specifically to host the 23rd World Cup of Golf in 1975. The majestic layout was the result of the vision of its founder, Sukum Navapan, being skillfully brought to life by world-renowned architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr. s’ philosophy, which was to create a course that was tough for the professional golfers yet provided an enjoyable challenge for golfers of more modest talent. He transformed paddy fields into a 6,902-yard championship course of truly international standards, and his first masterpiece in Asia. In 1999, Navatanee Golf Course was ranked among top courses in the mainland Thailand by Golf Digest USA.
Such rich history, coupled with the striking beauty of the ‘Flame of the Forest’ and Rosewood trees and vivid arrays of bougainvillea that adorn the fairways, creates a perfect harmony of serenity and challenge in Navatanee Golf Course that enchants golfers from all over the world. The signature 6th hole is a daunting 445 yards par-4 that demands a draw-shaped shot from the tee in order to reach the green in regulation. However, with water guarding both the entire left side of the fairway and another lake fronting the green in a sweeping reverse ‘S’ shape, making par on this hole is a notable achievement.
