Khao Kheow Country Club.
The Khao Kheow 27-hole golf course is located in the heart of the Pattaya golf strip
between Bangkok and Pattaya. Like so many of the Eastern Seaboard’s course’s the
Khao Kheow Country Club is set in a valley between two hills and strong sea breezes
are prevalent most afternoons. The course plays quite long and the elevation changes
between holes is a welcome differentiating point compared to the other flatter courses
in the surrounding area.
In typical Pete Dye design fashion, careful shot making is required to overcome not
only the windy conditions but also to take into account the numerous large ponds,
bunkers and hills that surround the well manicured fairways. Greens are heavily undulating
which makes precise putting a key to scoring well.
The course really has something for everyone. In particular, the signature par-three
17 which plays to an island green is a challenge for both amateurs and professionals.
The first 18 have been designed as a championship course, while the final 9 holes
are easier, more like a resort course. Playing all 27 holes is a good option for
those who would like to enjoy the variety of holes, elevations, and settings.
Those who play all 27 holes can look forward to relaxing at the well appointed clubhouse
afterward their rounds. The restaurant is nothing special, but the normal Thai golfer’s
favourites like minced pork with basil, fried rice, and a wide selection of noodle
soups are all good choices.
Overall Khao Kheow is a well balanced Pattaya golf course that ranks in the top third
of all areas courses, therefore making it a good choice for inclusion in any Pattaya
golf package. Carts are optional, which also helps to keep costs lower than normal
and affords all golfers a choice of walking or riding.
