Khao Kheow Country Club Description:
(Pattaya’s only Pete Dye-designed course)
The Khao Kheow 27-hole golf course’s location is the heart of the Pattaya golf corridor on the way to Bangkok and the Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Like many of the Pattaya courses, Khao Kheow Country Club sits in a valley between hills. The course plays quite long, and the elevation changes between holes is a welcome differentiating point compared to the other flatter courses in the surrounding area.
In typical Pete Dye design fashion, precise shot making is required to overcome not only the windy conditions but also to take into account the numerous large ponds, bunkers, and mounds that surround the fairways. Greens are small and undulating which makes precise putting a key to scoring well.
With three nine-hole loops to choose between (A, B and C), there is no end of excitement and many great golf holes to be played. Each nine has its own potentially card-wrecking holes. On the A Course, the par-4 7th occupies a wonderfully rural setting, but standing on the tee you’ll see a vast expanse of water running from tee-to-green, and a much thinner sliver of fairway also gently doglegging its way to the hole. The B Course contains one of the best island green par-3’s in Thailand. Just the green sitting out there, surrounded by water, has an eerie similarity to the TPC Sawgrass 17th. With Dye’s multiplicity of bunkering styles matched by a pleasant variety of trees lining the way, this is one Pattaya golf course that’s purely experiential.
Playing all 27 holes is a good option for those who would like to enjoy all of the variety of holes, elevations, and settings. The clubhouse is old but still functional. The restaurant overlooks the B Course and serves all Thai golfers favorites like spring rolls, minced pork with basil, fried rice, and a wide selection of noodle soups.
Overall Khao Kheow has reasonable green fees, proper maintenance, and ranks as a solid tier-2 Pattaya golf course. Carts are optional, which also helps to keep costs low and affords all golfers a choice of walking or riding.
