【Tadaharu’s FINESHOT in Thailand】 Make the best score at Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course! Suvarnabhumi Golf & Country Club
If you play golf, you may know the name of golf designer, Robert Trent Jones Jr..
He was the famous golf course designer in the world who designed more than 20 Japanese golf courses, such as Golden Valley Golf Club (Hyogo Prefecture), Katsura Golf Club (Hokkaido), and Regus Crest Golf Club (Hiroshima).
We introduce the Suvarnabhumi Golf & Country Club which inherit a strategic American style, and it is the course you can expect good score this time.
You may feel you can make a good score from No.1 to 4 since these holes have wide fairways and give you relax.
The ponds involve from the No.5 to No. 11, but you would be safe as hitting to the right side of the hole.
Although there is a long and super-difficult hole with handicap 2, such as No. 8, you may be able to make good score as trying to have a bogey.
There is a hole similar to the Miho Golf Club in Ibaraki, Japan.
Selecting partner is important for making good score.
When you play with a good golfer, the playing rhythm is consistent and you would concentrate on your game and get the advice.
Although it seems tough hole if you just look at the picture, it is the option to hit the fairway since it’s the yardage is short.
You should never find this bunker at short yardage 11th hole.
It is very tough to get on the green from bunker with a distance for even skilled golfer.
The ponds involve from the No.12 to No. 15 on the right side of the holes, but you would be safe as hitting to the left side.
While the last 3 holes are tough with long yardage, you can dare to hit as the fairways are wide.
There is a pond on the left and bunker in front of the green on the 17th hole, so if you miss the shot, the right side is better.
There is a similar short hole in Katsura.
Do you have a good image to make good score?
Typically, the courses he designed offer the expensive green fees and are famous and are those we feel hesitate to play in Japan, but you can play this course for 1,799 baht on weekdays.
I think that it is rare for choosing a course by a designer, but you can understand the designer characteristics. Since making good score would be possible if you realize the strategy, the choosing course by designer is another way to enjoy golf.
For those who want to play at the course designed by Robert, please make a reservation at GDO Thailand.
