Wangjuntr Golf Park
I last played this course three or four years ago and have not changed my opinion that it is a lovely and demanding course. The fairways are well maintained and the greens are in very good condition. An added bonus is the numerous deer that occasionally wander across the fairways but mostly keep to the trees under the shade. The caddies were acceptable but not exceptiona…

King Naga Golf Club
Having played several courses in the Rayong area, the only positive thing to say about King Naga is the price. The course was very dry when we played and the fairways were hard and brown with very little grass. The greens were slightly better but had not been cut for several days so were slow and uneven. There were three green keepers working on the course which accordin…

Nopera Golf Club
A simple unpretentious nine hole course made out of a previous farm. Mostly straight up and down made interesting on a couple of holes by a deep creek. Exactly what you would expect in terms of maintenance by volunteers, slow greens and variable fairways. Impossible to fault the friendliness of the members or the 10 NZ$ In the honesty box for a round. Considering the out…

Golf Club D'Aigueleze
A very flat 9 hole course with two par threes and one par five, between Albi and Gaillac. There is some wear and tear as this is a popular holiday destination and the course needs some drainage work to reduce the wet areas. In the winter months. Don’t plan on having lunch there as the cafeteria closes between 12.00 and 14.00. The practice ground is nicely done although to…

Emerald Golf Club
As with most Thai courses carts and caddies are compulsory and you would do well to heed their advice on approach shots to the greens and putting lines and speed. Plenty of variety in length and elevation and the four par 3s are a delight - especially the 5th if the pin is near the top of the sloping green when the ball can easily run back further away than when you start…

Plutaluang Royal Thai Navy Golf Course
Popular with expats as one of the least expensive courses in the Pattaya / Rayong area. Both courses have hills, lakes and water filled ditches. The greens are reasonable if somewhat sanded and can be very fast on downhill putts. There are four nine hole courses generally played as North-West and South-East but there is flexibility if you ask. The caddies are generally go…

Eastern Star Country Club & Resort
Excellent clubhouse and pleasant restaurant. We had difficulty booking a tee time eventually getting one through golf savers. com at a reduced rate and there was a mix up with starting times with our names missing. The course has a coarse grass on the fairways with little roll and the greens although heavily sanded were true and fast especially on a downhill putt, Fairly…

Elephant Hills Resort
This is not just Africa, it is Zimbabwe so don’t expect immaculate course conditions. What you can be certain of however, is wildlife in abundance = one just one hole we saw warthog, impala, guinea fowl and monkeys. If you are visiting Victoria Falls and want to play a round or two, then do play this course just for the experience. Don’t expect the electric buggies to la…

Kambaku Golf Club
A real surprise to find the course in such good condition at the end of the dry season. A lovely combination of two par threes on the 7th and 9th with the par 4 8th spreading out from a hugely elevated tee with magnificent views. Great food in the restaurant with the terrace looking out over the river. Don’t miss this one if in the Komatipoort area.

Skukuza Golf Course
Set inside the Kruger National Park, there are no fences so the wildlife is free to come and go as it wishes. Lake Panic which is aptly named borders several holes and which you have to play over on the 9 th, demanding an accurate 145 metre shot to a small green in front of the clubhouse. The hardest part was finding the club as the map we had was inaccurate and signpost…

Kruger Park Lodge
A 9 hole Gary Player designed parkland course in Hazy View about 15 kilometres outside the National Park. Lots of impala around the course made interesting viewing. The par 5 3rd is a good test with a stream mid fairway and the green set behind a pond, the par 3 5th a challenging 194 metres and a couple of doglegs. The lodges set unobtrusively around the course are spac…

Osborne Golf Club
Queen Victoria's original two hole course at Osborne House, now extended to nine holes with some slight tee variations on some of the back nine to make an 18 hole course. Lovely parkland with some very fine trees and red squirrels. The par 3s provide the most challenge especially the 4th/12th with it's sloping green. No pro shop so green fees paid to friendly staff at th…

Ventnor Golf Club
Not an easy course to find, just keep going up the track & eventually you will get there. There are 12 holes with slightly different tees on six holes to make the 18. Greens were in a terrible state when we played, rough and uneven and the ladies tees were so overgrown my wife had to tee off on the path. Shame really as I think that volunteers maintain the course and th…

Donnington Grove Country Club
Two distinct halves to the 6500 yard course. The 1st 9 is up on the downs with many sloping fairways with tricky greens and great views. The 2nd 9 are in the valley with water hazards on several holes. You have to cross the Newbury bypass which means a good walk from the 1st green to the 2nd tee and again from the 8th green to the 9th tee. The 10th-18 are again a good wa…

Hever Castle Golf Club
Championship - Very picturesque parkland, the 2nd 9 much more interesting then the first 9. Play this course for preference. Boleyn - Would be much better if the 2nd 9 on the championship were played instead of the 1st 9 Princes - 1st,2nd,8th & 9th rather mundane, others very challenging. Tees in poor condition. Lots of society / corporate bookings meant play very slow.…

Greenmeadow Golf & Country Club
A hilly parkland course which unusually starts with a par 3 followed by a par 5. Many interesting holes many with sloping fairways also numerous raised greens making approach shots really important. We played after a prolonged dry spell and the fairways were understandably brown but the greens and tee were in excellent condition. The third, a par 4, was especially memora…

West Berkshire Golf Club
Looking at the club's website I was looking forward to playing West Berks. The course & facilities, however, didn't live up to the descriptions given. The holes were rather boring being mainly flat and straight. We played after several weeks without rain so the maintenance team can be forgiven for the dried up fairways, but the tees were hardly any better. The greens wer…

Heritage Golf Club (Domaine de Bel Ombre)
Free golf was part of the package with the hotel, we just had to pay for a buggy hence the high rating on value for money. Equally the course was busy and you need to book a time well in advance to be certain. The 18 hole course was a delight to play, well maintained and picturesque. The nine hole, however, was rather mundane. The practice putting green is in front of th…

Arabella Golf Club
So much is good about this club that it is almost impossible to fault and any minor gripes are nothing to do with the course itself. Beautifully laid out and maintained, a couple of holes stand out for me - the par 5 eighth running downhill to a green set almost in the Bot River Lagoon and the 18th with a bunker on the right for the full length of the hole which is not on…

The Cut Golf Club
A challenging course that runs along the coast with the majority of holes having changes in elevation. There is nearly always a wind coming off the Indian ocean which is especially strong on the par three 16th where my tee shot was blown at least 50 yards left. If you are in the Perth / Freemantle area do plat The Cut - you will not be disappointed.

Wangjuntr Golf Park
Although in Rayong province, the park of three courses is only 35 kilometres from Pattaya and if you like a challenge you should certainly play here. The course is simply outstanding and every hole is an absolute delight starting with a magnificent elevated tee on the first looking over a fairway surrounded by bunkers. Water comes into play on all the par 4s and 5s, the v…

The Royal Samui Golf & Country Club
An interesting and challanging 9 hole course on top of a hill on the eastern seabord of the island with 7 par 4s and 2 par 3s. Hidden away and not much to look at as you approach the very basic clubhouse, but you can drive your own buggy (highly recommended as very hilly and somet tees a long way from ther previous green) and the owner Pong gave us a very good rate for bo…

Halls Gap Golf Club
A nine hole golf course that is as flat as a pancake despite the name and like no other you are likely to play! Halls Gap is a remote and very dry area and as the fairways are not watered the grass is sparse to say the least. The greens are lush but small and generally covered in kangaroo droppings. The course is maintained by friendly voulenteer members and you put your…

The voiturettes are new and fast. The par 3s are long and there are quite a number of dogleg holes. The name of the club "L'Estang" (The Lake) gives a …

Blue Canyon Country Club
With all the history The Canyon course has with professional golfers such as Tiger Jack Norman Els Goosen and several others I was really excited to play this course. The layout is spectacular and it's easy to tell it was a tournament course at one time and much more challenging than the Lakes course. Some of the holes are very tricky (e.g. hole 13 on which Tiger drove t…

Templer Park Country Club
A well laid out course with dramatic carries over canyons from some tees. Spectacular scenery only 20 Minutes from central Kuala Lumpur. Very reasonable green, caddie and club hire fees: good changing room facilities. Our round was cut short to 16 holes due to the thunderstorm warnings siren sounding.

A varied golf course with several uphill holes which prove quite challenging and some lovely elevated tees too. There is a very deep monsoon drain running through the course which should be avoided at all costs as there is no way you will ever recover balls that find their way in! It was quity rainy when we were there and the greens were very soft but in good condition. …

Much better than I had expected from reviews on other sites. A generally flat course made interesting by the amount of lakes adjoining the fairways and ponds in front of the greens. Worth purchasing 'experienced' balls as any ball in a lake will not be retreived. Caddies are compulsory - mine was a useless novice, but my wife's was excellent. If in Chang Mai to try ou…

Not only do you get to play a golf course that is kept in superb condition with water on every hole, but there is also a feast of wildlife from jungle chickens, otters and giant monitor lizards as well as egrets, kingfishers, swallows and many other birds. There is always a seller of "experienced" balls somewhere on the course and "floaters" are used on the driving range …

The greens were very variable when I played in December 2016. A club member told me they had been relaid withing the last 12 months, but even so the 9th and 18th were appalling. There is no pro shop, just a few clothes hanging in the reception. The driving range is a long way away and needs a buggy to get to especially if it is hot. Only one really interesting hole - t…
