Dragon Hills Golf & Country Club Description:
(challenging course & scenic layout)
Dragon Hills Golf Club is an 18-hole layout spread over 2,400 acres of lush natural mountainside jungle. Jim Enge, an American who worked with Nicklaus design, was the lead designer responsible for producing this particularly good layout.Previously kept in excellent condition, although nowadays conditions vary, golf visitors looking to get away from Bangkok mostly visit this track. It is a one and one half hour drive from Kanchanaburi, Bangkok and Hua Hin through mostly curving local roads.
This remote setting is in the middle of forested jungle, valleys, and hills. Dragon Hills offers a combination of undulating fairways and greens, lateral water hazards, carries over water, doglegs and strategically located sand traps. The scenic background makes for a pleasurable round of golf.
The back nine holes are particularly impressive, as they play through environmentally preserved parklands. The signature holes are 10, 11, and 12. Hole-12 plays to an island green, downhill about 170 yards. Unusually, there are three par 3’s, three par 4’s and three par 5’s on this back nine, making it a real challenge with no easy holes. The par 4’s and par 5’s play long, with well-placed hazards and sloping back to front greens.
A small rustic clubhouse and on-site lodge provides ample, but not fancy, facilities and accommodations. In any case, most golfers come here for the scenery in a remote part of western Thailand and depart after their round.
