Fabulous views from the golf terrace. Rare to find someone design a terrace that gives you 360 degrees view of the mountain. That's clever. Difficult layout that keeps you thinking on your toes. You do need caddies. The way these greens putt will do your head in! I was looking at an uphill slope then the caddy insist 'downhill' 'fast'. Didn't believe her. Took us about 9 holes before we realise that when they say uphill, downhill - it refers to the speed of your putt. The breaks are very wide. In the beginning we didn't believe them when they tell us to chip to 1 flag to the right. But it turn out to be correct. So listen to your caddy. Never mind if it looks weird, strange, incomprehensible. They know, we don't! Guess what - they're excellent too. Of all courses we played, this must be the most difficult. So if you like that, Banyan is for you!

This golf course was an excellent challenge to all standards. Different tee boxes can alter the challenge .The course was in great condition and the greens very true. The caddies are good and most are good with distances and lines on the greens. A must play course in Hua Hin.

Great course and overall experience. Course is beautiful and the caddies were great and very knowledgeable. Had a burger and a beer after the round and the burger was fantastic. As an overall experience I rate Banyan as a better place than Black Mountain. I would definitely play hear again!

Although I prefer a tree-lined course, this open, classy course Banyan should be on every golfer's list to play.

Located not far from Hua Hin, the course is laid out in front of the clubhouse, which itself is rather odd-looking when arriving. Pro shop is in a separate building at the carpark, then a large stone wall contains the clubhouse entrance.

GolfAsian provided booking and transport, excellent in every way. So we were quickly ushered to our waiting carts and caddies. Quite capable and knowledgable caddies.

The course is composed of highest quality fairways and greens. Impeccable.
Each hole is different, with caddies pointing out dangers[many] and landing areas. Slopes and water, make getting to the huge, challenging greens a real test of mind over ability. Fabulous.

The 19th hole offers a choice between ‘Terrace’ restaurant, and ‘Mulligans’ Pub. Each elegant timber building nicely situated overlooking the course.
We chose the Pub for a light meal [which was cooked in the restaurant kitchen] and arrived superbly presented. Staff attentive and friendly.
Will return as soon as possible to this excellent course and clubhouse. Best in Hua Hin

I chose to play here as it is only 20 minutes from Hua Hin and the club arranged free transport.. Well maintained course with fast greens. Good rental clubs.
