Muang Kaew Golf Club, Samut Prakan

Recently redesigned by Schmitt and Curley, Muang Kaew has developed into a first class facility. Wide fairways give players some respite for approach shots, most of which are to slightly elevated greens that are difficult to hold. The course seems to get better by the hole with the back nine offering a great variety of holes starting with the exciting risk-reward Par 5 13th, where players have a blind tee shot and an approach shot over a large and intimidating water hazard. Even shorter hitters can bite off a bit of the dogleg and have a go at the green, although you will need to carry the ball anywhere between 250-150 yards over the water. The nine ends with a deceiving Par 5, where any approach shots short and right will have a watery ending.

The Golf Course was originally opened 14 years ago within an established wooded area divided by kalongs and one large river which winds through the first three holes of the front nine. The Owners decided to upgrade the golf course in 2003.

Flat green complexes were changed to well protected greens - raised above the fairway level to make for more challenging approach shots and some cavernous bunkers to add difficulty. Use of Tiff Eagle Grass on the greens enable our Team to produce excellent putting surfaces all year round that run at around 10 to 12 on the stimpmeter. ( A Stimpmeter is a device used to measure the speed of a golf course putting green by applying a known force to a golf ball and measuring the distance travelled in feet ) This green speed is demanded by all golfers and is impossible to achieve using the grasses used on most courses in Thailand.

Undulations were added to all the fairways to aid drainage and to produce a running surface all year around. New Turf Maintenance equipment is now used to maintain and condition all areas of the course.
