Avoid the crowds at this well designed links-style course; just steer clear of the deep, testing bunkers. One of the latest additions to the Bangkok area's burgeoning cannon of top quality golf courses is Cascata Golf Club. It may be a little further from Bangkok's city centre than most other courses, but the 27 holes of Scottish links-style golf make the extra journey time more than worth it. Avoid the crowds at this well designed links-style course; just steer clear of the deep, testing bunkers. The openness of the fairways is currently enhanced by the fact that many of the trees are yet to reach maturity, but that is tempered by there being less protection from the wind, which will make it harder to avoid the ubiquitous water hazards and, on the signature 520 yard par-5 12th, the huge waste bunker that runs along the left side of the fairway. Don't be seduced by the relatively large, flat greens though - they are lightning quick, demanding a sure touch, and protected by steep-walled bunkers which seem reluctant to let your ball escape. If you can avoid sand and water however, then some good scores are there for the taking; once the trees have reached maturity, the course will tighten. Its relative newness also means that it is something of an undiscovered treasure, with tee times easy to come by. The Thai food available at the Spanish style clubhouse also has a lot to recommend it. One minor gripe is the compulsory hire of a buggy, which seems unnecessary given the flat terrain and short walks form green to tee, but that aside, you should book a round on this high quality course now before everyone else realises what a good idea it is.
