names in honour of its venerable Scottish’s St. Andrews. St. Andrews 2000 is located
in picturesque hilly countryside in the South Eastern Thai province of Rayong, just
over half and hour’s drive from the famous seaside resort town of Pattaya. Designed
by the flamboyant English-born and Cambridge educated architect Desmond Muirhead,
St. Andrews 2000 opens for play in you guessed it the year 2000. The sprawling par
74 course adjoins its sister layout, the older, well established par 72 layout of
Rayong Green Valley Country Club.
It’s not a typical par 74 for an astounding back market length of 7777 yard, thanks
to the two endlessly long par 6. The two monster holes in question are the 4th and
13th, which weigh in at 855 and 857 yards respectively. Moirhead has created a visually
stunning, sweeping layout that must rank among the best new courses in the land of
a thousand smiles.
St. Andrews 2000, an uncompromisingly tough golf course that will test even the best
of golfers to their limits.
Working with a spectacular, undulating natural topography, St. Andrews 2000 was built
to replicate the wind-swept Scottish links courses, offering an uncompromising challenge
aimed at players with handicaps of 18 or lower. Opened at the dawn of the Pacific
Century, this course will soon become known as one of Asia's true championship courses.
Desmond Muirhead created a full 18 holes, 74 par of memorable golf, featuring elevated
tees and greens, tight landing zones, split elevation fairways, huge putting surfaces
and two par 6's
The Course demands a combination of both power and accuracy, with the strategic positioning
of hazards forcing the player to remain focused on each shot, as one mental error
can be very costly. This is a touch, demanding course that will test every club and
trick in your bag, and leave you with many stories to tell your friends about a challenging
round of golf that will create lasting memories.
