A challenging, scenic course with a dramatic finish, with accuracy the name of the game.
Built upon a fairly uninspiring landscape, Subhapruek Golf Club has matured into a scenic golf course, with very little of the outside world visible above the tree-line. Highly rated in the Bangkok area for its challenging layout involving palm tree-lined fairways, sculpted bunkers and substantial water hazards, this is not a course for those who struggle to consistently hit straight, and there is very little benefit to hitting long distances. Instead, accuracy is the name of the game, particularly on the challenging par-3s which all involve tee shots over water. Even if you can play the controlled, accurate golf required of a good score, it is easy to come unstuck at the end, where an island green 16th is followed by a testing par-4 that wraps around a lake that punishes even the slightest fade. The 18th is similarly lined with water, with its waterfall backdrop making it one of the prettiest holes in world golf.
On the downside, this is a busy course with wear and tear evident on some fairways and greens, and there were too many unraked bunkers for our liking, but given the reasonable green fees you shouldn't let that put you off a round here.
