Santiburi Samui Country Club Description:
(one of Thailand’s most spectacular courses)
The Santiburi Samui Country Club was Koh Samui’s first golf course and provides both challenge and charm with a lush tropical setting. The 18-hole championship golf course came to fame when it hosted the 2006 Bangkok Airways Open. Located on a hillside on Koh Samui’s north shore and amidst old coconut gardens, the golf course has a commanding scenic panoramic view of the Gulf of Thailand and Koh Phangan Island. Most holes have magnificent ocean and beach views. Waterfalls and creeks run through the land adding a lush, natural beauty with the hills providing a picturesque backdrop.Each of the 18 holes at Santiburi Samui Country Club has its unique character and challenges. From steep uphill and downhill slopes to winding fairways that are cut into the forest and meander around cliffs and streams, Santiburi Samui Country Club is one of the unique Thailand golf courses.Tifeagle grass greens run very fast, and new shade resistant Sea Isle Paspalum tees and fairways ensures good playing conditions year round.

The golf course starts off the first few holes playing through a mature coconut forest and then progresses up the mountain. The fairways follow the natural line of the hills, creating an interesting and challenging golf game. Rock outcroppings found on several holes also adds to the challenge.

Due to this being a shortish mountainous course this course rewards accuracy, not distance. Small fairways are the order of the day on most holes, but the large greens make approach shots a little easier. The Koh Samui golf course requires a golf cart to get up and down the steep mountain slopes.

The luxury clubhouse provides comfortable changing rooms, a well-stocked pro shop and a restaurant with beautiful terrace seating to enjoy the surrounding scenery just a little while longer.
