Summit Green Valley Chiangmai Country Golf Club Details
Year built: 1990
Architect(s): Dennis Griffiths,
Season: Year round
Summit Green Valley Chiangmai Country Golf Club, designed by Dennis Griffiths, the same architect as Thai Country Club in Bangkok, is one of the best kept in Chiang Mai. Situated in the lowlands and only 20 minutes drive from the center of Chiangmai, Summit Green Valley Chiangmai Country Club manages to offer beautiful surroundings, air freshness, and various native landscaping unique to Northern Thailand. Hundreds of palm trees line the course, which affords nice views of the surrounding mountains.
Summit Green Valley Chiangmai Country Club is very difficult to par, especially from the back tees at 7200 yards. The golf course features an abundance of well placed sand bunkers and lots of water that can come into play on nearly every hole on the course. The fairways, lined with palm trees, seem wide, but golfers must be careful in that water hazards and bunkers are plentiful at the landing areas, thus making the fairways narrow and leaving no room for wayward shots. The greens are large, receptive to approach shots, and putting speed is moderate to slightly fast. However, the course’s length, numerous elevation changes, and prevailing wind make Summit Green Valley Chiangmai Country Club a tough but fair challenge to golfers of all skill levels.
