“Experience golf as it was decades ago”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

During the “2012 Hua Hin Golf Festival” in August and September one can play at most of the golf courses in the Hua Hin area for a fee of 800 baht, plus a caddy fee of 300 baht. The one exception is Black Mountain which offers no reduced fee. (Also, for those who like to walk, be aware that Banyan, the most celebrated course on this T.A. site, is also the only course that requires that you pay for a buggy or golf cart—and this is the reason I did not play there and could not write a T.A. review of Banyan.) Also note that the standard caddy “tip” on all courses is 300 baht (and not 500 baht) as was stated above by a previous reviewer in this stream.

If you do not have a car, you can simply walk to Royal Hua Hin Club from anyway in central downtown—it is less distance than walking a par five! (Majestic Creek, and possible other courses provide a free shuttle service from downtown Hua Hin if you call in advance to arrange it.) Before playing at Royal Hua Hin, I first visited the clubhouse and course at 10 AM on a Monday in August, and almost no one was playing. From the viewpoint of the clubhouse and elevated restaurant, the course looked lush and beautiful so I came back on the following Thursday. All staff were very helpful in getting me started, and the course was immensely pleasant and green. I have played at one other course in Hua Hin, which I also enjoyed, but the Royal Hua Hin has a colonial atmosphere that is special.

I highly recommend the Royal Hua Hin, the caddies, and the golf. Although I wish to experience other courses in Hua Hin, I also have a strong desire to return to the Royal Hua Hin, which I will do.

“A wonderful classic”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is the oldest golf course in Thaïlande, located right behind the picturesque Hua Hin train station. The amazing scenery itself is worth the round, with century-old trees, hills and temple in the background... Hole 15, with downhill view on an alley boardered by flame trees is a memory for life.
Golf itself was good although not up to the Hua Hin standard. Fairway grass is too thick. Greens were in rather good conditions (although we played during the warmest season - early May). Reservoirs were very low and the general upkeep outside of fairways and green was a bit down.
Round costs 2,250BHT (+tip for the caddies, usually around 500BHT), without buggy. Lots of shade on this course, walking is definitely an option even during hot days (careful, it gets a little hilly).
Note that Wednesday is sports day and fee is reduced to 800BHT ! (expect course to be more busy though). We played on a Tuesday and apart from us two, our caddies and some green keepers, we didn't see anyone else !
All in all, I would definitely recommend to play this course if you are around Hua Hin. It's actually even worth a stroll if you don't play golf...
