Cascata Golf Club

Cascata Golf Club Description: (generous fairways with some of Bangkok’s best greens) Cascata Golf Club is a relative newcomer to Bangkok’s seemingly endless supply of excellent quality golf courses. Opened in 2006 and predominantly designed by its owner; the original A and B Courses at Cascata incorporate many open fairways, creating a Scottish links-style experience. Cascata is kept in excellent condition and is an exciting challenge with generous fairways and some of Bangkok’s best greens. Both A and B Courses are dotted with trees, although the general feel will always be open and expansive, with limited protection from the wind, which can indeed be a factor. The longer A-course introduces players to ever-present water hazards, opening with a short, tightly dog-legging par-4 and then a testing, water-protected par-3 (where an over-sized wine bottle further reinforces the course’s European connections). The Cascata clubhouse is Spanish style and adds even more fun to the overall experience. However, don’t let the appearance fool you. The restaurant is 100% Thai as is the excellent food prepared by the local chef. Overall, Cascata is fun and fair to play on and is well suited for Bangkok bound golfers who are looking for an easy to play golf course in natural park-like surroundings with clean air. Compulsory golf buggies unnecessarily add to the overall cost, but Bangkok golfers will enjoy their round at Cascata Golf Club nevertheless. The driving distance to Cascata is well worth the time as play is always fast and conditions are at tournament levels through the year.
