Muang Kaew Golf Club Description:
(well-maintained course is testing and enjoyable for all)
Muang Kew Golf Club is one of the more popular and closet to town Bangkok golf courses.  The excellent location near to central Bangkok and the new Bangkok airport makes Muang Kaew a perfect choice for golfers wanting to play, but who are short on time. Redesigned by Schmidt -Curley, Muang Kaew has Tiff Eagle turf greens and Paspalum grass fairways, ensuring excellent year-round conditions for all golfers.The Bangkok golf course boasts well-guarded greens; many elevated with large side catchment areas, a unique design aspect hardly ever seen on the flattish Bangkok golf courses.

Wide fairways give players some respite for approach shots, most of which are into difficult to hold greens with high lipped bunkers, and shaved fringes.

The course seems to get better by the hole with the back nine offering great variety starting with the exciting risk-reward par-5 13th. Walking under the highway, players have a blind tee shot, and an approach shot over a large and intimidating water hazard. Even shorter hitters can bite off a bit of the dogleg and have a go at the green, although a carry of at least 150 yards over the water is needed to get on in two. The finishing hole is a deceiving par-5 where any approach shots short and right will have a watery ending into a blind pond guarding the green.

The clubhouse could do with some renovations, especially the locker rooms which are showing their age. However, the rest of the facility makes up for this. For example, the restaurant serves up some of the best western food in Bangkok. Try any of the grilled sandwiches or full American breakfast, and you won’t know you are away from home.  The Pro Shop has a wide selection of men’s and ladies golf apparel including both famous and local brands at reasonable prices.

Golf carts are optional, and the flattish course is easy to walk. The caddie corps are well-experienced and can surely help make an average day better.  The only downsides are lack of a driving range and the main highway which bisects holes 12 and 13. Nevertheless, Muang Kaew is very well-kept and makes for a fine Bangkok golf outing especially for those needing to minimize travel times.
