Book The Emerald Golf Resort:Tee Times
To one the finest & most challenging golf course in Thailand
It takes about 55 minutes by car from Pattaya city.
The Emerald is a genuine country golf course. Originally named Ban Chang and then Rayong Century Golf Club the course is set into the mountains just outside Rayong.
The Emerald is a veritable work of art by two well-known golf architects. Nick Faldo and the Desmond Muirhead. The 18-hole design weaves through a pristine rainforest of full-grown trees that still provide sanctuary to a variety of native birds. The gentle, yet stunning contours of the fairways, the volcanic-like greens, difficult par-3’s, and the subtle water placements all combine to make the Emerald one the most challenging golf courses in Thailand. Unlike many of the other Pattaya golf courses, driving accuracy is favored over length as there is a huge premium when hitting the fairways.
Clubhouse and other facilities are not excessively luxurious but full of friendliness in the tradition of the Thai rural lifestyle. The open-air restaurant provides a nice ambiance after the game.
