“Oldest Course in Thailand - And It Shows”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I have been playing golf in Thailand regularly for 5 years now, and this course is a blight on the usual quality of Thai Golf courses! The condition of the course is very poor, to the point that it looks like it has had no upgrade or decent maintenance since opening. When you add the poor quality of the caddies, who are more interested in trying to hurry your round, so they can get your money and go home, it is a truly poor reflection on the usually top quality golfing experience in Thailand.

“Oldest driving range I have ever seen”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Guess since the oldest golf course of Thailand was created they did nothing to upgrade the driving range. Carbage everywhere and the distance signs are all worn out. The price of THB30 for 50 balls is very reasonable, so if you just care to hit some balls it is good enough.

“Very Challenging”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

What can you say about this original first golf course built in Thailand. It is a very challenging layout that offers golfers of all levels a true golfing experience. It can get a little warm during the low season, but the huge trees provide enough shade to stay cool. Caddies are always willing to help with the umbrellas to get cover from the sun. This course is located directly in Hua Hin town. Does not receive the accolades of Black Mountain and Banyan, but on the other hand, the layout and history of this course makes it well worth playing while in Hua Hin.

“Oldest Course in Thailand...”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Also the caddies and rental equipment!!

Bring your own clubs and get a caddie that can see/walk/hear.

I walked this course. My Caddie had a very hard time keeping up with me.. out of breath on every green.
The course was not in the best of shape. It was in desperate need of fairway cutting as it was like hitting out of the rough. The rough was almost impossible.

Maybe it was due to lots of rain that it was not in the best shape??

Anyway, MUCH better equipped courses in Thailand. This course needs renovation for EVERYTHING.
