Waterford Valley Golf Club & Resort Description:
(hilly, challenging, and scenic course)

Set in the Wiang Chai Hills Waterford Valley Golf Course is 40 minutes from the city of Chiang Rai in one of Thailand’s most attractive and coolest areas. The Waterford golf course is mostly flat as it is built upon a plateau, surrounded by lush valleys and mountains. The beautiful mountains of the North provide a pleasant distraction to a day on the fairways, which themselves are surrounded by trees, shrubs and bushes and make this  par 72 layout one of the most scenic in Thailand.

Designed in 1994 by Rather International, the natural beauty, incredible vistas & views, and refreshing climate make Waterford Valley an excellent choice for a day of golf in Chiang Rai.

Waterford Valley is a good, though at times hilly course. Three holes on each side have severe elevation changes, making correct club selection critical. The flatter holes are fairly straightforward, with wide fairways.

The 9th, a 390 yard par 4, is particularly challenging. The tee box is set back off to the side corner of a hill with the fairway playing a dog-leg left. A straight hit with a driver will run out of fairway and into water; a well-controlled draw round the hill to a landing area is the best bet or else a shorter 3-wood is a safer play. The approach is over a steep, water-filled ravine to a raised green sloping severely from back to front, with bunkers left and right. Avoid landing above the hole or face a downhill putt.

The 10th, a 505 yard par 5, requires an exacting drive over water to the fairway below. Trees right and left flank a narrow fairway guarded by a large bunker right and out of bounds all along left. It’s quite severely downhill so a good tee shot will run a long way down the fairway, setting up for a fairway wood onto the green in two.

The 18th, a 368 yard par 4, is a good finishing hole with elevation change hole and at such a short distance is a good birdie opportunity.  A 3-wood off the tee sets up nice for hitting it close to the uphill green giving a chance to finish the round well. Overall Waterford is a pleasant Chiang Rai golf course with predominantly open parkland holes and a few decidedly tricky ones mixed in as well.

After golf players have a good view of the surroundings and suburbs of Chiang Rai from the open-air clubhouse. The food is basic Thai cuisine including a few spicy northern specialties. There’s also a good choice of refreshments. There is also an onsite golf resort which consists of a 20 room golf lodge as well as 30 dormitory style rooms. However, these are mainly used by local Thais and large groups of visiting Asian golfers as most Chiang Rai golfers prefer to overnight at better lodging nearer to Chiang Rai city center.

Waterford Valley Golf Club & Resort Reviews & Comments

Patricia (2012-11-07)

New management took over in Sept 2012. They have not honoured previously agreed promotions, 8,000 baht paid in Sept for one years membership according to new management now only lasts till Dec. Members are only allowed to play 18 times until end of Dec. Reception staff are rude, prices of food and drink expensive(staff insist you purchase 200 bahts of food coupons. Can of singha beer 80 bahts) Santiburi and Happy City better options.

Played the course in March 2011. It was in good, but not great shape as some fairways were rather bare. Nevertheless a nice day out and a good compliment to Santiburi Chiang Rai.
