The world’s prettiest courses
Many of the golf courses in Thailand are built to impress you in every way, with constant reminders of where you are in the world, Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, on the other hand, will provide a unique sense of comfort.
It’s the first golf course to have been built in Thailand back in 1924 and due to its British designer, it will remind you of many British golf courses. This provides a sense of comfort when standing on the first tee and will continue throughout your round as you play along the rolling, tree-lined fairways.
The most famous course in the area is Black Mountain, in part, this is thanks to its pedigree on the professional circuit having hosted Asian and European Tour events. It’s stunning to behold as you play at the foothills of Black Mountain and the course is kept in immaculate condition year-round.
Banyon is another terrific course in the Hua Hin district that can vary in difficulty based on the tees you choose to play from. The course features plenty of water hazards and bunkers that’ll need to be avoided if you want to post a decent score.
