Thai Country Club ( Golf Club ) Chachoengsao, Thailand
is a joint venture between the Phataraprasit Group and The Hong Kong and Shanghai
Hotels, Limited. The Phataraprasit Group is a Thai-owned business conglomerate with
extensive business interests in the north of Thailand, primarily in the distilling
industry. The group expanded its interests into banking, ceramics, property development,
investment, and retailing. The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited was originally
incorporated on the Hong Kong stock exchange. The principle business of the company
is the ownership and management of luxury hotels, such as the Peninsula Group, prime
residential and commercial property and club management and consultancy services.
Designed under US PGA international standards by Denis Griffiths, at that time president
of the world-renowned American Society of Golf Course Architects, opened in December
1996. The design adapts to everyday member use up to a very tough challenge for major
international tournaments featuring the finest players in the world. The 7,157-yard
course, from the professional tees, was tested during the 1997 Asian Honda Classic
won by Tiger Woods.
The high-tech computer designed greens make for many interesting pin placements.
The entire course features immaculate conditions, a neo-classic design and alkali
variety from hole to hole, along with an abundance of water and sand hazards. The
course is a constant test of one’s golfing proficiency.
Off the course, you will find the friendliest staff of professionals in the Kingdom,
committed to making your golf experience a memorable one.
So, whether you play from the tees for 7,157 yards, or prefer a more leisurely round
at 6,105 yards, or somewhere in between.
