(beautiful Robert Trent Jones Jr. course is among the best in Thailand)
Golfers living in Thailand will tell you that Santiburi in Chiang Mai is one of their favorite golf courses in Thailand, and this is no small compliment! Santiburi Country Club was the first Chiang Rai golf course. The Chiang Rai Robert Trent Jones Jr designed Santiburi Country Club covers vast fields with excellent placement of holes and an abundance of water hazards and bunkers. The golf course is widely regarded as one of the best conceived and maintained golf courses in Asia.
Set into the contours of a valley, Santiburi offers a landscaped golf course that winds beneath a canopy of magnificent shade trees. The layout crosses lakes and streams and lush green foothills, and the mountains of Chiang Rai. The golf course is championship caliber, yet it is playable and enjoyable for golfers on every skill level.
Santiburi Chiang Rai Country Club features great holes with undulating fairways and fast greens. Four different tees appeal to every level of golfer, and eleven long par-4's make Santiburi particularly challenging for better golfers. Most holes have rolling greens guarded by countless sand and grass bunkers, trees, and substantial water hazards. There are varied options for longer holes, including conservative approaches for the novice and challenging routes over danger for the more experienced golfers.
As the course weaves its way around natural rolling hills and lakes, the first nine plays up and downhill while the back nine holes sweep through steep valleys and a chain of 3 lakes.
The Santiburi fairways have a wide range of sloping lies, are long, and are lined with natural hazards. At holes 2, 3, and 4, you have to play alongside a large lake that runs the holes' length. Bunkers protect most greens, and there are several dogleg holes. The par-5 finishing hole is particularly impressive as water protects the left side from the tee and again on the right side of the fairway on the approach shot.
The Santiburi Chiang Rai course is kept in excellent condition year-round, as the Singha Beer family owners continue to invest in good maintenance practices. If coming to Thailand, like to golf, and part of the time will be in Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai, then every golfer should make time to play this course.
The beautiful and fully functional clubhouse dominates the highest point of the club area. It is first-class in every way, including clean locker rooms, a well-stocked pro shop, and a lovely restaurant serving a range of local and international dishes, and of course, cold Singha beer!
You can also combine this golf course with other courses for your next golf holiday.
