“A sizeable course which is part-designed by Jack Nicklaus”
The Thai Diamond Land Kaeng Krachan is a testing course which experienced golfers are bound to enjoy taking on, especially as bamboo forests and trees line the fairways. With picturesque greens which take a lot of accuracy to make, there are many chances for a player to card a high score if they don’t concentrate. Consisting of two courses as of 2008 when the Mountain Course was opened, there are plenty of opportunities for a golfer to try out various pins and see if they can conquer this course which blends in well with the natural terrain.
Thailand Golf Tours brings visitors from all over the world to enjoy the incredible course at Thai Diamond Land Kaeng Krachan and can easily organise your visit. Thailand Golf Tours works with individual and group travellers to plan tours to Thailand’s many golf courses; as part of a visit to Thailand or as the basis for an entire holiday in Thailand focused on golf. With excellent local contacts and wealth of local knowledge, Thailand Golf Tours are able to ensure the golf break or holiday that suits your skills, interest, budget and time requirements.
The first 18 holes of Thai Diamond Land Kaeng Krachan were designed by Cherd Boonyaratavej, who is responsible for many other golf courses in Thailand, and the 9 hole Mountain Course was conceived by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus and there is 7330 yards to play on. Many holes deserve a special mention, such as the 3rd which is a par 5. With dense forests on both sides of the fairways, it also has many hazards in the form of several pot bunkers. To try a championship course in the Hua Hin area, attempting the Jack Nicklaus Mountain Course is highly recommended, especially as an Asian tour qualifying event was recently played there.
