The first golf course in Thailand, built and designed in 1924 by a Scottish engineer who worked for Thai Railways. The course is reminiscent of a British type parkland layout and its longevity is easily recognised in the maturity of some of the ancient trees that line the fairways that give plenty of shade beneath their leafy canopy’s. This charming course has some tight driving holes and several challenging dog legs to negotiate.

Beware on the uphill 13thpar 4 as a troop of macaque monkeys reside in the trees here and have been known to collect golf balls as souvenirs.  A glistening Buddhist temple sits regally in the hills as owls and other wildlife gather watch the proceedings on the golf course. 

Springfield Royal Country Club

The Springfield Royal Country Club is a championship test of golf from the back tees. This 27-hole Nicklaus signature golf course has five sets of tees to choose from. There are some long carries over water if you are courageous to play from the back tees. Bring a hat and sunscreen this course seems to trap the heat and being a Nicklaus design a weak fade will be punished on the back 9 when any sign of fatigue creeps in to your game, with waste bunkers and water strategically placed down the right-hand side of the fairways.

Hua Hin beach has offered horse riding for nearly 100 years, it is also great for a moonlight stroll or a sunrise jog. With traditional fisherman’s houses on stilts built out to sea it is an interesting spot to watch the squid boats set sail for their nightly catch.
