Royal Bang Pa-In Golf Club located north of Bangkok, in Ayutthaya Province is in the heart of Bangkok’s new golf epicenter. The 7,052-yard Schmidt-Curley designed track is unusual as it managed like a country club member’s course. The 18-holes at Royal Bang Pa-In are spread out over 100 hectares. The designer and construction team has turned flat marshland and rice paddies into an impressive modern golf course. Unique features include some of the most massive greens in Asia planted with the latest variety of Champion ultra-dwarf Bermuda grass. The fast speeds and severe undulations make for some very interesting putts which require excellent green reading and lag putting ability just to 2-putt. Fairways and rough are grassed with Paspalum turf. The fairways are, for the most part, very hard, which promotes good run out on low and draw shots. The rough is thick and sticky, which makes it that much more informant to keep balls in the fairway to make pars. Royal Bang Pa-In includes an ultra-modern clubhouse designed in an elliptical shape where no two walls are parallel. The entrance is massive and even consists of a heliport for arriving dignitaries. The large rock waterfall spans the entire rear of the clubhouse, with water raging down from the second level to the golf courses. Extensive locker rooms lighting using small opaque glass panes that allow natural light while still offering privacy. The excellent 360-degree course views the dining room makes use of the floor-to-ceiling restaurant windows. Other amenities, food selections, service, and layout are first-class. Bang Pa-In is one of the Thai golf courses that are sure to please discerning golfers.
