18 holes par 72 (7541 yards) The most memorable holes include the forth hole, the longest par 5 on the course and one of the longest in Thailand at 652 yards. The fifth, a 444 yard par 4 with well guarded green and where par would be a good score. On the seventh golfers take note of the interesting spirit house near the tee. The stream runs along side and across this hole from green to tee makes it one of the most challenging holes on the course. The boldest, who have prayed to the spirits, may attempt to carry the whole length of the water and going for the green in two. However, in reality on this exciting hole anything an eagle to a triple bogey can result.
The island fairway on the par 4 ninth hole is both beautiful and difficult. Playing over water twice and almost directly into the prevailing wind, makes this hole a challenging ending to the front nine. The eleventh hole, a 524 yard par 4 (yes par 4!), is without doubt the most difficult on the golf course. Doglegging left with water down the entire left side, this hole plays almost like a par 5.
The second hole with an island green is number 15, a short 169 yard par 3. This is the most intimidating looking hole on the course. While only a short iron for most, the sight of the green surrounded by water makes most players tremble. The island looks very small, but it is nearly 50 yards wide which is a large target for a shot of this length.
