3 golf travel spots in Thailand recommended by Thailand Department of Tourism, Head of Korea Office, Natida Brayongyi

Red Mountain Country Club The course of Red Mountain Country Club is twisted as it is made on an area that was previously a mining area. This provides beautiful scenery matched with unique playing environment. However, as the course was made on a mountain, the height difference is significantly large. For instance, one hole shows a height differential of 40m between the tee box and the green. For this reason, many golfers try to hit long distance shots. However, since the fairway width is narrow, one needs to be at least mid-upper level skilled in order to enjoy an 18 hole rounding.

Banyan Golf & Spa Resort Located 4.5km from the center of Hua Hin, Banyan Golf Club is located inside a pineapple farmland where ocean view and low hills nearby. While the course is relatively straight, it allows thrill and exciting rounding as every hole has strategically placed bunkers and water hazards. Its signature hole, the 15th(par 3), provides the golfers the view of Singto Island above the tropical rain forests and the green. The longest hole, the 12th(par 5) is 610 yard long.

Highland Golf & Spa Resort Located 45 minutes away from Chiang Mai Airport, Highland is right next to ‘Roong Aroon’ hot springs, which allows golfers to relieve fatigue after rounding. The course not only provide beautiful view and clear air, but also similar rounding environment to that of Korea. This makes it popular among Korean golfers. In this course, bunkers are more threatening than the water hazards. Players with middle level and upper may enjoy the challenge as the course requires accurate course management with more than 100 bunkers.
