Bangpakong Riverside Country Club
Eco-friendly parkland course that's great for high handicappers
Located halfway between Pattaya and Bangkok and named after the river that runs through it, the Bangpakong Riverside Country Club is a course that emphasises 'green' golf course management, meaning that the extensive local wildlife and native plants are truly a sight to behold. While the wide fairways and flat terrain make this a course where even high-handicappers can expect to score well, the long par 4's make this a course where the long-hitter will really shine.
Even the thick rough tends to leave the ball sitting up, so as long as you can keep your ball dry you won't get yourself into too much trouble, and big hitters should have birdie or eagle chances at the 9th and 18th.
However, the near constant wind and the need to play the occasional blind shot over trees prevent Bangpakong Riverside Country Club from being too easy. At the standout 17th, your tee shot must avoid out-of-bounds on the right and water on the left whilst somehow avoiding awkward fairway bunkers.
The clubhouse facilities are excellent, in particular the locker rooms and showers. While the large practice area behind the clubhouse is good for warm-ups, the driving range has seen better days. Friendly and helpful staff and the peaceful environment mean you should enjoy a relaxing day out from start to finish.
Overall satisfactory as the course was not crowded. Club house was good except that there was no hot water for shower after the game.Decent course, relatively flat but windy condition provides some challenge. Greens were satisfactory and running true.
Once is enoughA very good walk spoilt by a bunch of country bumpkins. Although just outside Bangkok, the attitudes of the caddies (a majority older) and local players renders a feeling of small-minded rural insularity and ignorance.
Caddie was very good and decided to alternate holes so as to not being held up by slow playing groups. Course was in excellent conditionCourse in excellent condition, mix of fast and slow greens which made it interesting. Layout was fantastic
