The Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club - is one of the rare courses in the country that is surrounded by scenic mountains. Stretching nearly 7,000 yards, this 18-hole Par-72 mountain course makes much use of the natural hilly terrain as well as the water catchment areas to provide challenging obstacles to a good score. Sand traps and testing greens add to the degree of difficulty. Against the majestic mountain view as the backdrop, lush woodlands abound with regular wild monkeys at the tree top; a hole-in-one is unlikely to be celebrated unnoticed any time on the course.

The sloping fairway of the Par 4 320 yard Hole 6 tests placement ability. Tee off shots leaning towards the right will certainly find water and therefore disaster. And if the shot is well placed on the left side of the fairway, a treacherous green sloping back towards the fairway will severely test club selection. A flatter club head for more rolls will be helpful. In any eventuality, the beautiful mountain view and the refreshing air will either compensate for the less than satisfactory finishing or simply add to the joy of having played in such divine surrounding. This stunning course is found within the triangle of Bangkok, Kanchanaburi and Hua Hin. It is a major challenge for all golfers with trees, water and bunkers all coming into play on the fairways and the greens being a real test with their slopes and burrows. It is reckoned amongst the top 10 beautiful courses in Thailand. The clubhouse is modest, but you'll find everything you need and there is a neighbouring hotel if you require accommodation.
