Rachakram Golf Club

Rachakram Golf Club Description: (links-style course with a variety of challenging holes) Opened in 2006 and located 1:30 from Bangkok, Rachakram Golf Club offers excellent value-for-money. The Bangkok course design by famous Thai golf architect Sukitt Klangvisai (Phuket Country Club) offers a tremendous variety of memorable holes. Similar to a like a links course there are the undulations and open spaces in the fairways enabling shots to run up to the greens. The fairways are flattish and generous which often provide good playing surfaces. Most holes are tree lined and as the trees mature they will continue to enhance the challenge of Rachakram Golf Club. Greens are quite firm and fast, but receptive to holding approach shots, even with long irons and woods. In addition to superb greens, the bunker sand is of a nice firm texture, providing the ability to put a good spin on bunker shots. This course has a great variety of holes both in length and design. The pars 3’s are challenging with lengths of 193, 230, 206 and one short one of 136 yards. The par 5’s all measure over 500 yards and with the wind against you at times; these par holes can play like well over 600 yards! The Rachakram clubhouse is modern with large, clean changing and shower facilities. The restaurant has a beautiful view over the course, especially at night when it is floodlit. Other facilities include a driving range, and two short game and putting areas. While the drive from Bangkok is slightly longer than other Bangkok golf courses, brisk playing speed makes the overall elapsed time quite reasonable. Additionally, low green fees make Rachakram a good value-for-money. Day and night golf is available seven days a week.
