Yasuko’s Let’s Enjoy Thailand~Royal Bang Pa-In Golf Club~

Nearly overseas representative Yasuko introduces Thailand attractions with movies and articles as ambassador. She gives the latest and useful Thailand golf information to everyone from overseas beginner golfers to repeaters.

In this edition, we visited the Royal Bang Pa-In Golf Club, the 5-star course, which just fully opened in 2017. We finally made here! Yes! Yes! Yes!

This is the golf club that we desperately would like to play since our last visit for pre-open in few years ago as we played at the Rachakram Golf Club & Resort and heard same owner would open a tremendous course next to the Rachakram.

The unique round and stylish clubhouse and the course under construction are so impressive! And, I have been dying to play here as it fully open with high expectation.

Innovative and modern design of two round buildings.

It has good access with 50 minutes by car in the early morning and about 70 minutes at the traffic from Bangkok. After the check in at the pro shop that there are a lot of selected items with a good sense, having breakfast is recommended.

Check in at the counter. If you have made a reservation at GDO THAILAND, you only have to pay caddie and cart fee at there.

Sen Lek Naam – The chicken stock soup is good for stomach is tasty.

Thailand in February is in the dry season, and it is around 20 degree Celsius in the morning and the air is clear and comfortable. Since it is extremely cold in Japan in February, just playing golf with short sleeves & shorts makes us feeling great.

Tee off at sunrise! Nice shot would be sure by playing with short sleeves & shorts in February.

Many amateur golfers wish to find safe place for the tee shot at starting hole, but it was instantly predicted that the wish would be extremely difficult as soon as we stood at the teeing ground.

The Pond lying in parallel with the fairway gives a great pressure for the first tee shot.

As there are many courses made on a flat terrain in Bangkok, skillfully arranging water hazards on 17 out of 18 holes makes the Royal Bang Pa-In Golf Club the strategic course.

We got motivated to play this par 5 9th as the manager recommended it the most, but…

Found this bunker after three lay-ups.

The signature hole of par 3 14th. The water surrounds the green.

The island green and crazy undulation on the putting surface. Holing out with two-putt is good job.

Since the layout of the hole is not straight, it is a lot of fun to set up a strategy whether finding to place the ball on the fairway by crossing the pond or laying up in front of the pond by using the small course map and the distance measurement tool while exercising wisdom that usually rest.

The 16th hole is short par 4 with 293 yards from blue tee.

The outstanding design of the course was created by Schmidt-Curly design company has designed Siam Country Club Plantation course, Amata Spring Country Club, Chiang Mai Highlands Golf & Spa Resort, etc.

I’m kind of a person who would like to revenge after defeated by course, but this course has the charm that makes me think “I want to come back again soon” even before finishing the round.

I swore to my heart that I absolutely conquer the 9th hole next time.

“Gai Yang” that a juicy and delicious chicken is used for lunch.

Yum Wunsen, the Japanese spring salad. It was not as spicy as it looked, but it had an elegant taste.
