Muang Ake Golf Course
One of oldest courses in Bangkok with easy access to Dom Muang Airport
Situated very close to Don Muang International Airport, Muang Ake Golf Course holds a prime location. Having opened its doors in 1986, it stands as one of Thailand's oldest private golf clubs. Primarily characterised by its flat terrain, the course lacks significant undulations on both fairways and greens, and its relatively short length means players can anticipate favourable scores, if you can stay out of the numerous water hazards. The fairways tend to lean towards rugged and dry, while the greens showcase periods of fast speeds and meticulous maintenance. It's advisable to avoid rainy stretches, given the grass's limited drainage capacity.
Within the clubhouse, Muang Kaew offers a satisfactory range of Thai cuisine. For a more diverse culinary experience, just beyond the main gate, an array of seafood and local pop-up eateries provide excellent value, boasting some of Bangkok's most delightful flavors.
Affordable green fees, walkability, and the warm Thai ambiance contribute to Muang Ake's popularity among both locals and tourists. While those in pursuit of an authentic Thai golf adventure will find satisfaction in the journey to Muang Ake, those seeking a PGA-level course should explore other options.
