Located just over an hour from downtown Bangkok, beyond the Don Mueang International Airport, lies the Wang Noi Prestige Golf & Country Club. The former Muang Ake layout underwent a significant revamp in 2018, involving re-grassing, clubhouse renovations, and a shift in management. Today, Wangnoi Prestige stands as a compelling choice for those seeking an exceptional golf experience in Bangkok without breaking the bank.
Spanning 7,238 yards, the course boasts native Zoysia grass fairways and top-tier ultra-dwarf TiffEagle greens. Golfers are greeted by expansive fairways surrounded by towering trees. Moreover, the clever placement of bunkers, coupled with natural water bodies, adds a challenging dimension to the predominantly flat terrain.
The 17th, a 568-yard Par-5 (Handicap 1), holds the distinction of being the signature hole of Wang Noi Prestige. While ambitious players might attempt to cover it in two strokes, caution is advised due to a water hazard lining the left edge of the fairway and green, urging most golfers to play conservatively.
For those looking to gear up, the club’s pro shop offers a wide array of golf essentials. Aspiring players can refine their skills using the grass driving range, short-game area, and expansive practice greens complete with bunkers.
Post-game, the main clubhouse restaurant beckons players to unwind. It offers a versatile menu ranging from local Thai dishes to international delicacies. Additionally, the well-curated wine cellar, a unique feature among Thai golf clubs, allows guests to indulge in fine wines.
