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.
