Wangjuntr Golf & Nature Park, Highland Course Description:
(unique course in beautiful surroundings)
Wangjuntr, a strange sounding and spelled name, is located in the hills of Rayong. The Wangjuntr Golf Club features three ‘twin golf course’ layouts each featuring 18 fairways and 36 greens, the same arrangement as many Japan courses. Added to this trick, Wangjuntr Golf Park has two of the most challenging and spectacular golf courses in Thailand. Read on!

The uniqueness of Wangjuntr is not only the two-course designs but also the pristine landscape left in place. Intended to be an environmentally friendly Pattaya golf resort, the original stand of mature rubber trees and pineapple, sugarcane and cassava plantations have been reconfigured and converted into two golf courses and a significant golf resort.

All large trees preserved and augmented by a well-managed reforestation program. These three Thai golf courses reflect the magnificence and the harmony of championship golf courses set in the natural wilderness.

The Valley Course plays over 7100 yards including five par 5’s and five par 3’s, the longest of which represents an astounding 245 yards! The par 3, 15th hole plays to a heavily sloped green and requires a perfect approach shot to avoid the pond off to the right of the green. Also, a par 3, the 17th hole, is located on a cliff and hits down to a well-guarded green while offering panoramic views of the region.

The par 4’s range from a short 299 to a whopping 503 yards! The 2nd hole has a eucalyptus tree forest surrounding the fairway. The 4th hole has a crater-like grass bunker in the middle of a double green. Probably the best hole on the golf course is the 11th, a par five measuring 694 yards, and is one of the longest par 5’s in Thailand. Only the two par 6’s found down the road at St. Andrews 2000 play longer. The two finishing holes at Wangjuntr Golf Park are also well-designed par 5’s. Well struck drives can be rewarded with excellent 2-on opportunities, offering golfers birdie opportunities on these holes.

The Highland Course measures over 7600 yards making it the longest golf course in Thailand. Again among the twin-greened eighteen holes, there are four par 3’s, ten par 4’s, and four par 5’s. The par-3’s distance ranges from 150 to 253 yards. The par 4’s play up to 493 yards, and the longest par 5 is 690 yards.

The Highland Course is even more challenging than the Valley Course. Every hole is a challenge in its own right. The course has to be seen and played once as its too hard to describe in words!

The Jungle Course is the newest of the three layouts, and it’s also as bizarre as the two others. As the name implies, pristine jungle land with mature hardwoods was cut down to make way for each hole.

Wangjuntr Golf Park is okay as part of a Pattaya golf holiday with a central Pattaya location for accommodation. However, the course also offers several on-site accommodation options including cabins, a golf lodge, and a private mansion, all surrounded by greenery and a bird sanctuary. The clubhouse serves mostly local food. There are few restaurants nearby on the Gulf of Thailand which make excellent choices for enjoying a seafood meal with a few cold beers while watching the sunset and reminiscing about golf at Wangjuntr, all before heading back to start a night out in Pattaya.
