Siam Country Club Old Course is one of the more famous Thailand golf courses. When it was built in 1971, it was the first privately owned golf course in the country. The Old Course was closed in 2006-2007 for a complete renovation by Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley from the USA. The original hole routing was for the most part kept intact, while all aspects of the course were modernized and brought up to international championship levels.
Since reopening in 2007 the golf course has hosted several international golf tournaments including the annual Honda LPGA Classic from 2010 onwards. As expected the course is impeccably maintained and kept in excellent playing condition year round.
The Old Course at Siam Country Club is set in the low hills just a few kilometers from Pattaya and contains more than its fair share of mature trees, shrubs and plants. Various fruit trees on the course give one the impression of being in an orchard, especially when in season. The abundant 'wildlife' in the form of sculptured bushes and hedges are a feature unique to Siam Country Club.
The course has an out and back layout with many of the golf holes playing past a series of lakes and strategically placed creeks. Long, straight driving is required to negotiate the larger fairway bunker complexes. Left or right shots are punished by large trees at Siam Country Club flanking every fairway. The greens at Siam Country Club Old Course are large, roll fast, are excellently maintained, and extremely undulated. The many breaks favor the assistance of an experienced caddie to read properly.
Making the turn up the 9th fairway, there is a large golden Buddha watching over the green. Dotted with many bunkers and water hazards, the course also boasts several other dramatic holes, particularly the last four. The 15th through 18th holes taken together could arguably be the best finishing holes of any Pattaya golf course. If you're having a good day and scoring well, take care as these 4 holes could easily bring you back to earth and ruin a good score. The final hole, a par-5, in particular is tempting to try to reach in 2. However, many a golfer has walked off with a bogey or worse as the closer you get to the green the more difficult the hole becomes.
The clubhouse is still the original dated from the 1970’s with some sprucing up on the insides. It overlooks the course, but is often infested with fruit flies. Sit inside if having a meal or beer after the round. The driving range is off to the side and hard to get to. The caddies and carts are staged under the clubhouse in a particularly dirty area. It would be better to come to the course warmed-up and head straight to the first tee.
The Siam Country Club, Old Course itself is one of the best in Pattaya. Together with the other Siam County Club Courses (Plantation and Waterside) they take top honors.
You can also combine this golf course with other courses for your next golf holiday.
