Springfield Royal Country Club

The traditional Jack Nicklaus designed Springfield Royal Country Club located off the Hua Hin bypass road is a top Hua Hin golf course and an excellent cost-effective alternative to Banyan and Black Mountain. Springfield has been designed to meet the high demands of a championship golf course, and yet it remains an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards. Each hole has five tees to play from, but only golf professionals should attempt the back Jack tees. Water hazards periodically come into play, and each hole presents its challenge and character requiring shop making finesse. Accuracy is needed as the rough comprises a series of hillocks and holes lined by a forest of mature trees. The first hole is a gentle 389-yard par-4. The first appearance looks quite simple. Hopes can quickly fade, as the well-protected green can prove difficult & requires accuracy. The finishing par-5 18th and Springfield’s signature hole needs one last perfect shot to an island green. The green is reachable in two by longer hitters and those with an ego. Hit a good drive over the trees of the dogleg left, and then the green will be in sight for the second shot. Have to have a go, but use caution; this shot is longer than it looks!
