Nikanti Golf Club is a one-of-a-kind unique 18-hole track, situated in Nakhon Pathom province west of Bangkok. As a work of Thai golf course designer and architect Piraporn Namatra of Golf East, Nikanti Golf Club is revolutionary in more ways than one.
For a start it measures a short 6789 yards from the black tees. Nikanti Golf Club is a course with significant challenge, even for professional golfers. The fairways, while wide, feature plenty of mounding and elevation changes. Many of the greens, meanwhile, are strongly undulated, run fast (especially downhill), and are guarded by excellent bunker complexes. Water comes into play on many of the holes, especially on the par-5s.
Bangkok golf courses often get criticized for their lack of elevation change, but that’s not the case at Nikanti Golf Club. Club selection is also impacted by the prevailing winds that sweep don through many of the valleys that dot the course. Nikanti Golf Club rewards accurate shots over distance more than most other Bangkok golf courses. Still, many of the holes are reachable in under-par.
Nikanti Golf Club features and impressive modern clubhouse with many amenities only found at private members clubs. Full length lockers, gourmet food and beverages, observation deck and lounge with satellite TV all make you forget that you are at a daily fee public golf course. Service is also exemplary including 15-minute tee times to insure good place of play, all inclusive and non-cash policies, strict “no tipping”, and free local beverages on course.
