【Tadaharu’s FINESHOT in THAILAND】Historical links! The Royal Chiangmai Golf Resort
If you come to Chiang Mai, the golf course you cannot leave out of your itinerary is The Royal Chiangmai Golf Resort. This is the oldest and most historical golf course in Chiang Mai, designed by the Five-time British Open Champion, Peter Thompson.
What is distinctive about this course is that it incorporated characteristics of a links golf course. Despite being a resort, the difficulty level is rather high. It is, however, enjoyable for golfers of every skill level.
Like the famous tree in Thailand, in the middle of the fairway on the 13th par4, many trees line the fairway.
One of the things that makes this course difficult is the rough. Keeping your ball on the fairway and taking your shot at the green from the fairway is a must.
The bunkers are similar to what you would see on a links course: dotted pot bunkers.
