Despite playing long, the wide flat fairways at Bangkapong Riverside Country Club make this an ideal course for high handicappers; nature-loving golfers will be enchanted by the wondrous flora and fauna. Although some way out of the city there is a fast highway most of the way so can be reached from downtown Bangkok in under an hour. Also one of the best value golf courses in Bangkok
Located halfway between Pattaya and Bangkok and named after the river that runs through it, the Bangpakong Riverside Country Club is a course that emphasises 'green' golf course management, meaning that the extensive local wildlife and native plants are truly a sight to behold. While the wide fairways and flat terrain make this a course where even high-handicappers can expect to score well, the long par 4's make this a course where the long-hitter will really shine. Even the thick rough tends to leave the ball sitting up so as long as you can keep your ball dry you won't get yourself into too much trouble, and big hitters should have birdie or eagle chances at the 9th and 18th.
The near constant wind and the blind shots over trees that occasionally feature prevent Bangpakong Riverside Country Club from being too easy however, and at the standout 17th, your tee shot must avoid out-of-bounds on the right and water on the left whilst somehow avoiding awkward fairway bunkers. Friendly and helpful staff and the peaceful environment mean you should enjoy a relaxing day out from start to finish.

We played midweek and got a really good deal with caddie and carts included. The fairways were in great condition and the greens were pretty true as well. Goof clubhouse and we would definitely return to play again.
