Royal Thai Army Golf Club – Old Course
The Royal Thai Army Golf Club, as the name implies, is under the ownership and management of the Thai Army and is conveniently located just outside the bustling heart of downtown Bangkok. This facility is distinguished by its two full-fledged 18-hole courses, known as the Old Course and the New Course.
In contrast to many nations where military golf courses are typically off-limits to civilians, Thailand extends a warm welcome to visitors who wish to enjoy these courses. Notably, the Royal Thai Army Golf Club is one of the few places in Bangkok that offers night golf, with floodlights illuminating the fairways until 11 p.m. every evening.
The layout of the site comprises two parallel 18-hole, par 72 parkland-style courses, each surrounded by lush trees, presenting an equally formidable challenge. The relatively level terrain makes for an enjoyable round of golf, catering to players with a range of handicaps.
While the New Course and Old Course share a clubhouse, their teeing areas are located on opposite sides of the Royal Thai Army Golf Club. The New Course closely mirrors the Old Course in terms of design, but its holes are slightly shorter, typically spanning 20-30 yards less. Both courses cater to golfers of varying skill levels, from low handicaps to high handicaps.
Given its reasonable pricing and central location, the Royal Thai Army Golf Club experiences high demand, particularly on weekends and Wednesday afternoons when soldiers are allocated time for sporting activities. Therefore, it’s advisable to make a reservation by calling ahead to secure a tee time.
The caddies at this club are highly trained and professional, assisting golfers and maintaining a good pace of play, even when accommodating groups of six players.
