Get in quick to benefit from initially low green fees at this excellent new addition to the Khao Yai golfing cannon. Despite having only been open since late 2010, Rancho Charnvee Country Club has already built a strong reputation for its large, flawless greens and well maintained fairways set from where you can enjoy stunning views of the mountains that provide a fitting backdrop. Currently a fairly open course while the trees slowly reach maturity, it nonetheless remains pretty challenging thanks to well positioned (if annoyingly gritty) bunkers and the fact that it is a long course, particularly from the black tees. While high handicappers will not disgrace themselves, better players probably can't afford to get too complacent. Thankfully there is little danger of that as your round starts out with an awkward drive over an intimidatingly large lake before an uphill approach shot to a small green. The very long par-3 4th ensures that you have to be at the top of your game to stop your round falling apart early on. With more water carries and plenty of out-of-bounds stakes lining fairways, there is plenty to punish those having an off day. Drive straight and you should be okay. No expense seems to have been spared at the brand new clubhouse, with excellent changing rooms and a first rate restaurant, all staffed by friendly staff providing a high level of service. If you're quick you can take advantage of opening period green fees that are very low, so now is a good time to try to tame the course at Rancho Charnvee Country Club. Like the sound of this course?
