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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
