Prestigious and beautiful, this well maintained course is a challenge for pro and amateur alike. With a tropical feel thanks to the surrounding orchards, paddy fields and lotus ponds, Suwan Golf & Country Club is something of a masterpiece.
Winner of several awards and host of the prestigious 2011 Thailand Open this hilly course is superbly maintained and presents quite a challenge to professional and amateur alike. Flat lies are hard to come by on the contoured fairways, and you will find far more changes in elevation than most courses in the generally flat Bangkok region. Reaching the built up and well protected greens in regulation is no mean feat, and even if you can get there the greens are deceptive and lightning quick. Errant shots are easily punished by OB or water hazards so straight hitting, careful planning and correct club selection are at a premium. Hole 16 is probably the standout, although it is a close run thing (the last 5 holes in particular are a match for anywhere). This mid-length par-3 is surrounded by water, with a contoured green protected by 6 massive bunkers.
The facilities are top notch, as to be expected from such a prestigious course, and the caddies are very highly rated, and you can feel safe relying on their reads of the tricky greens.
