Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club Pattaya
Perhaps the nearest golf course to central Pattaya, Phoenix Gold is only 25 minutes away.
Originally designed by Denis Griffiths in 1993, this 27 hole course has recently been upgraded on instructions of the new owners by Piraporn Nimatra, who designed Banyan in Hua Hin.
Piraporn has worked his magic on the Ocean and Mountain courses and the Lakes course is expected to follow. The yardage is Mountain at 3,449 yards, Lake at 3,261 yards and Ocean at 3,363 yards.
Facilities include a driving range, restaurant, Pro-shop, several meeting rooms and separate male and female locker rooms.
The Mountain has a spectacular view of the famous Buddha Mountain, the Lakes has many water hazards and ponds along the fairways and the Ocean course offers dramatic views of the Gulf of Thailand.
It is worth noting that this course has fantastic drainage so you don’t have to wait too long even after a deluge in the wet season.
Birdie: Signature hole is the par 3 hole 7 on the Ocean course. Be careful of the winds so club selection is vital….listen to your caddie.
Bogie: Food is a bit limited on the course kiosks and they give you change in vouchers.
Watch out for: Some holes have magnificent views of the ocean and Silverlake in the distance. Being mainly on high ground there are welcome breezes most of the year to keep you cool.
