The toughest and most beautiful course in the area. Book a tee time here and you won't regret it. The cloud covered hills and the lush forests of Khao Yai National Park provide a wondrous setting for what is by general assent Khao Yai's most challenging course, thanks to the raised greens, plentiful pothole bunkers and severely contoured fairways. With several forced water carries of 200 yards or so and some tricky pin positions, this is a course where if you aren't at the top of your game you run the risk in running up a triple figure score. This is a course that starts as it means to go on, with the eye-catching 1st requiring carries over a creek and then a lake to reach the green; while it does ease somewhat after this extreme opening, you still have to contend with greens that often feature several tiers and some surprisingly sharp slopes. The back nine could almost classify as a work of art such is the range of spectacular holes; on the standout 12th you start from an elevated, tiered tee from where you must hit over water to the fairway that lies in a valley between tee and green. Go too far and you risk getting the ball wet; likewise if you end up too short. The second shot is tricky to judge thanks to the elevation changes, and even if you can land on the green (avoiding the deep bunkers that lie beyond) you have no guarantee of staying there due to the slopes that fall away to the left and front. Celebrate a par here like you have just won the Masters. Like the sound of this course?

We can't blame the caddies for not correctly reading every putt given the course is still new, or the management for insisting on golf carts that we were grateful for given some long distances between holes. This is a must-play course where the beautiful scenery can more than make up for any ugly scorecards. Like the sound of this course?
