(nice course in rural environment)
Blue Sapphire Golf & Resort is a nice 36-hole track in western Thailand’s, Kanchanaburi Province. It takes around 30 minutes to reach the course from Kanchanaburi town. The layout is divided into the 18-hole Canyon Course (Course A-B) and 18-hole Ocean Course (Course C-D).
An abandoned open-cast sapphire mine surrounded by mountainous hills was used to create the land for both Blue Sapphire golf courses. Course designers added local plants and native trees to frame each hole. Blue Sapphire's two 18-hole courses (Canyon and Ocean) are well laid out between a series of man-made emerald blue lakes. There are five different tee positions to accommodate every level of golfer. Every hole is unique and named to reflect its playing characteristics.
Water comes into play often on the Canyon Course, which comprises the Blue Sapphire (A Course) and Yellow Sapphire (B Course) nines. All the par-3 holes are downhill and require water to be crossed. Many of the par-4 and par-5 holes play up and down hill with large mountains in the distance. The A-B combination is the better of the two courses.
The Pink Sapphire (C Course) combines with the D Course to form the Ocean Course. Although the C Course offers the shortest nine, it includes some of Blue Sapphire's most testing water holes. The D Course is even more difficult with tight landing areas, elevated greens, and several doglegs around the former rock quarry walls.
Blue Sapphire is a nice Kanchanaburi golf course that offers a good test of golf. Conditions are generally good, but check beforehand to be sure. Facilities including the clubhouse, restaurant, and on-site house boat and resort style accommodations are however only average.
In any event, Blue Sapphire Golf & Resort will provide golfers with an enjoyable round, or two, in rural and natural settings and is a nice getaway for golfers who prefer peaceful over city environments.
You can also combine this golf course with other courses for your next golf holiday.
