Designed by Mr. Pravit Reang-po in 2006, Gassan Marina Golf Club has been set around Chiang Mai’s largest lake, 10,000 square meters in size. So far 18 holes with a par of 72 have been completed making it the longest course in the North of Thailand, standing at 7,596 yards in length. Set against a back drop of breathtaking mountains with exotic plants, this course has much more to offer. Any golfer will appreciate the design of the course with its daunting amount of bunkers, ditches and water hazards. We also have a driving range for golfer to practice before or after the golf game.
Hole 1, Par 4. A water ditch at the right runs parallel with the fairway, shaping it as it goes. There are large bunkers running along the fairway on the left. The heavily guarded green is on the left protected by these bunkers.
Hole 2, Par 5. The fairway is flanked on both sides by bunkers and the right by a water ditch, ahead is the green protected left and right.
Hole 3, Par 4. Ahead of the tee is a large bunker leading to a large, wide fairway. The elevated, sloping green is straight ahead with bunkers left and right.
Hole 4, Par 4. From the tee of this straight hole, all you will see is sand, not only is the small green completely surrounded by bunkers, but most of the fairway seems to be as well.
Hole 5, Par 3. From the blue tees you will need to strike the ball 195 yards to land this large, sloping, heavily guarded L shaped green.
Hole 6, Par 5. This 638 yards hole has sand running the entirety of its left side with a few bunkers right. The green lies ahead with bunkers protecting all sides.
Hole 7, Par 3. This relatively easy par 3 is 161 yards in length from the blue tees. The large, undulating green has water right and a few bunkers left.
Hole 8, Par 4. This hole has water running down the right side and a fairway takes a slight dog leg right to meet it at the green.
Hole 9, Par 4. With water running parallel on the right as well as well as an enormous bunker, the temptation to play left is huge, however be wary of the 4 bunkers that will meet you. Play safely past these for the green with its safe entry straight ahead, but stray or left and you will be in the sand once again.
Hole 10, Par 4. This straight fairway runs with water along its left and bunkers either side. The green is straight ahead protected by bunkers on the left and right.
Hole 11, Par 5. This hole has a dog leg fairway running right with water along its left side, small bunkers are left are right. The large green is guarded at the bake and on the right.
Hole 12, Par 4. The right of this hole can be petrifying with its water ditch and jagged bunkers running 502 yards from the blue tees. The green is directly ahead, however jagged bunkers continue to encroach the front left and right.
Hole 13, Par 4. This hole has a wide fairway with many bunkers on the right. The large, undulating green is protected by large bunkers left, back and right.
Hole 14, Par 3. This green is situated with bunkers left and water at the right and front, so not only will you have to judge the 224 yards distance from the blue tees and the wind, but also avoid any of these hazards.
Hole 15, Par 5. This hole has a sand bunker in front of the tee and water leading to a large, long fairway. With a few bunkers right and a clear run to the green, the only hazard being one bunker on the left.
Hole 16, Par 3. This is an undulating, island green, 165 yards from the blue tees and only 1 bunker at the back, however the wind can be treacherous and the distance deceiving.
Hole 17, Par 4. The tee shot should take you onto the fairway no real hindrance as long as you avoid the water and long parallel bunker on the left. From there towards the green you must watch for the large bunkers on the right. This large green is guarded at the back, right and front left.
Hole 18, Par 4. On the left of this hole you have water and a continuous row of jagged bunkers, on the right strategically placed bunkers. The small green is slightly left and has small bunkers back, left and right.
