Pattaya Golf Experience

The city of Pattaya is located about 90 minutes south-east of the Thai capital of Bangkok. With over 20 courses in the area, Pattaya is a golfers paradise and allows for many unique rounds to be played over a wide variety of layout, challenge and style. Golf in Pattaya is very popular and one of our largest destinations. Outside of golf, there are many things to do including a visit to some of the surrounding islands, relaxing on the beach and heading out at night to experience Pattaya’s world-renowned nightlife.

With its airport connecting various regional destinations, Pattaya can be included as part of a larger golf holiday experience in Asia. There is something in Pattaya for everyone, and combined with the excellent golf it is a true gem amongst gems.

Siam Country Club Old Course

The Old Course is a fantastic experience. The first course in the Siam Country Club stable, it is home to the Thai stop on the US LPGA normally played in February. A very traditional layout is a favourite for all Pattaya golfers.

Laem Chabang Interntaional Country Club

This Jack Nicklaus design is popular among all visitors. With 27 well designed holes, it offers a superb challenge and is fair for all golfers. Enjoy holes that meander through the jungle, and also which play along some perfectly placed water hazards. Night golf is also possible.

Chee Chan Golf Resort

Opened in 2019, the IMG-managed Chee Chan is a tough test no matter which tee box chosen. With a howling wind the course puts up a great defence. Views of Chee Chan Mountain and Pattaya provide for a great respite during a very challenging round.

Siam Country Club Plantation Course

The Plantation Course, the second in the Siam Country Club stable, is kept in pristine condition. The course is 27 holes of excellent golf and is a challenge for everyone that tee’s it up. With its crowned green complexes, it requires accuracy and precision. Provides great views over Pattaya.

Siam Country Club Waterside Course

The Waterside Course is the third course in the Siam Country Club stable. The 2 closing holes are excellent, and the practice facilities are world-class. It isn’t up the same level as The Old Course but is an enjoyable round of golf in Pattaya.

Siam Country Club Rolling Hills Course

Opened in 2020, Rolling Hills is the fourth course in the Siam Country Club stable. Extremely different from its sister courses, there are lots of waste areas and is along the lines of a links style course. Very unique to other golf courses in Thailand.

Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club – Located just south of Pattaya, this 27 hole course is a great course to include as a first round on a trip. With forgiving fairways and fair greens, the course ensures all golfers are in the swing of things for some of the more difficult courses on the golf experience in Pattaya.

Burapha Golf Club Pattaya

Previous host of the Thailand Open and multiple Singha Thailand Championships, this 36 hole course offers great variety with an excellent layout. The championship C & D courses are the pick of the litter and ensure excellent memories from a great round of golf.

Pattana Golf Club & Resort Pattaya

This 27 hole course provides excellent value-for-money golf just north of Pattaya. Well maintained with great facilities, quality and value can be assured when playing Pattana Golf Club.

Khao Kheow Country Club Pattaya

A great course to include on the way to or from Pattaya. The course has 27 holes and it is set up amongst the hills outside of Pattaya. Some tight fairways mean it offers a very good challenge and requires a straight ball.
