One for the long hitters looking for great value. A fairly recent addition to the plethora of Bangkok golf courses, Rachakram Golf Club's links style course remains a fairly well kept secret.
The open spaces in front of most greens mean you can run your ball up to the putting surface, making it an ideal course for those tired of the target golf design of most other courses in the area. Given that many of the trees are yet to mature, the course has quite an open feel that is currently fairly forgiving of wayward shots. Over time this will change, but for now if you can master the lightning quick greens and avoid the well maintained bunkers and occasionally hidden water hazards you should be able to shoot a good score, particularly if you are a long hitter - there is only one par-3 where you wont be reaching for a wood or rescue club, and the par 5s are all fairly epic, especially into the wind where getting there in two is a task of John Daly-sized proportions.
Being further out than most courses form Bangkok, it has the advantage of being a lot less crowded so take advantage of the reasonable green fees and get in a quick, enjoyable round (even at night, an option here) at Rachakram Golf Club.
