Royal Hua Hin Golf Club

Thailand's 1st course designed by a Scotsman in 1924

Royal Hua Hin is the oldest 18-hole international standard course in Thailand and is only five minutes from downtown Hua Hin. The course was commissioned in 1924 to accommodate the interests of the British railway workers and Thai aristocracy living in the area. Bering of traditional older British golf course design, the course is constructed on natural terrain and set between some spectacular rocky hills. Excellent views of the Gulf of Thailand and the city centre are possible from several of the holes.


A major renovation in the 1980's brought this course up to international standards, despite its age. Mature tree lined fairways are now abundant making for many shaded lies. The Par 3 18th is particularly impressive with a Thai temple in the back drop of the already challenging hole.


Actual playing conditions vary through the year from being very muddy in the wetter months to hard fairways when the course is at its peak in the winter months. Greens are normally kept in good condition year round.


Snack kiosks are on site every three holes, affording very comfortable rounds for all golfers. A remodelled club house makes for a nice 19th hole and to reflect on the golfers who have passed through the doors during the 80 years that Royal Hua Hin has been around. If noting else for historic value and convenience of location, Royal Hua Hin is a course that should be played at least once by every golf traveller to Hua Hin, if only to say you played where the Thai royalty of yesteryear used to enjoy this aristocratic sport.
