About

Visually stunning top-tier course with plenty of water

Ranked as one of the best courses in Thailand (it's been nominated for the honour three years in a row by the World Golf Awards), Riverdale Golf Club is a top-tier Bangkok golf course designed by Jonathan Morrow and Al Tikkanen, creators of the famed Red Mountain in Phuket. Intelligent routing and elevation changes combine to create a challenging and visually stunning course whose ever-present water presents a stiff challenge.

The course features several large lakes that were created by dredging to form the hills surrounding the golf course and framing most of the holes. Although there is not much to see beyond the perimeter, as factories and small villages dominate, the immaculately groomed links quickly reveal their charm and challenges, starting with the gently sloping downhill opener.

Riverdale's beauty lies in the interplay of gently rolling fairways, many small reed-lined lakes, raised greens, excellent bunkering, and large hills that break up some of the openness inherent in the layout. While the back nine is a hooker's nightmare, with water on the left side of every hole, it's the closing stretch of the front nine that stands out.

The signature par-5 6th requires requires threading your way between numerous bunkers, including one absolute monster down the right side, to reach the very well protected green. That's followed by a dog-leg left par-4 with another astonishing array of bunkers, notably to the right of the green, while the twin-green par-3 8th plays either to a water-protected island or postage-stamp green guarded by a pot bunker. 

After playing the 18 holes and hopefully coming through with a scorecard relatively intact, the clubhouse, with its contemporary styling overlooking the 10th and 18th holes, provides a cool spot to enjoy refreshments. The locker rooms are elegant and provide excellent changing facilities akin to those of a 5-star private members golf club.

Lovely course. Excellent caddies. Great for a trek with the boys.

Course layout was engaging. Caddies were very well trained. Special shout out to Ann - #162. Her reading of the greens were as if she should be on the LPGA. Overall condition of the non-course facilities seem a little tired but not a sore point.

Riverdale GC visit, beautiful well maintained course

Not far from the heart of Bangkok, beautiful and well maintained course. Lots to offer medium to high HCs. Really good looking holes. Was wet under foot due to big rain and back 9 very slow pace. Odd as was mid week.

Beautiful course with interesting elevation changes and variety of different holes

Great golf course very convenient to Don Mueang for a game after you land or before you fly out. The course was in wonderful condition although some of the tee boxes were a little bit worse for wear and the green condition could be improved. A very tranquil setting with nice caddies and an interesting landscape carved out of the flat Bangkok terrain. Some other players were driving around with boomboxes on their carts playing music which is probably one of the most annoying and ridiculous things I have ever experienced on a golf course. Well worth a look if playing in Bangkok.
