Eastern Star Country Club & Resort

The links-style course at Eastern Star, located near the Gulf of Thailand, is one of only five courses designed and built by Robert Trent Jones Jr. in all Thailand. The golf course is built on 530 acres of land, is the site of an old coconut plantation, and meanders through lovely residential areas of Eastern Star Country Club & Resort.

 

The course features wide fairways and hundreds of coconut palm trees and has become a popular local favourite. The gently undulating fairways and greens feature 65 bunkers, 11 lakes and more than 2,200 coconut palm trees. The golf resort is conveniently situated just two kilometres from the sea with nice beaches and always a cooling breeze. Like a true links course, it is only slightly above sea level in altitude.

 

Eastern Star has been the venue for local and regional golf tournaments. It offers plenty of challenge for the experienced golfer, but also offers enjoyment for beginners. It is a "thinking man's course" that can be successfully navigated with a little strategy and well-positioned shots. Tall mature coconut trees and some mango trees define the holes, enhanced by areas rich in flowers. There are numerous dog legs and a lot of water along its 18 fairways.

The golf course can play quite long, particularly from the championship blue tees. The signature hole is the picturesque par 3 thirteenth, which lulls players into admiring the scenery, rather than paying attention to their task of playing over water to a heavily bunkered green. With well positioned shots this is surely a course to suit beginner and experienced golfers alike.

 

Hole 13, a par 3 is also another hole of note. An accurate tee shot over water is required to stay out of the deep bunker or the lake on the right of the green. The key is play to the centre of the green or slightly to the left. Too far left however, and you are in sand or deep rough. Over the green gives you a difficult down-hill putt. If the hole appeared intimidating from the tee, look back from the green for an entirely different perspective.

There is a good practice area and driving range besides a luxurious clubhouse providing a wide range of facilities such as a Olympic sized beach pool, tennis courts and well provisioned locker rooms.
