Siam Country Club is one of the more famous Thailand golf courses, being built more than 35 years ago it was the first privately owned golf course in the country. Over the years the golf course has hosted several international golf tournaments including the annual Honda LPGA Classic from 2010 onwards. The course is impeccably maintained and kept in first-rate playing condition all year round.
The Siam Country Club-Old Course is located in the low hills, a few kilometers from Pattaya and contains bountiful mature trees, shrubs and plants. Many fruit trees on the course give the impression or atmosphere of being in an orchard. The abundance of wildlife in the form of bushes and hedges are unique features to Siam Country Club. The course layout is such that many golf holes are played past a series of lakes and carefully placed creeks. Powerful and straight driving is needed to negotiate the often narrow fairways. The large trees at Siam Country Club often get in the way and will punish errant tee shots. The greens at Siam Country Club are mostly large, roll fast, and are well maintained.
Filled with numerous bunkers and water hazards, the course boasts several challenging holes, particularly the last four holes. The 15th through 18th holes taken together could 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. Siam Country Club, Old Course is one of the best courses in Pattaya. Together with the Plantation, Waterside, and Laem Chabang courses the 4 take top honors.
