For golfers, ‘The King' refers not to Elvis Presley but to Arnold Palmer, the first golf superstar and at Bangpoo Golf & Sports Club you can test your golf  on one of the handful of Arnold Palmer designs in Asia and the only golf course in Bangkok which he built. Although close to the sea, you won’t find too many water hazards on the course which will be welcome news to the less able golfer who will find that this is a course where they can score well and not lose too many balls. However when the wind gets up the course can show its teeth so you need to keep your concentration especially when selecting the right club. Unlike many newly opened golf courses which look bare and open due to the lack of mature trees, Bangpoo Golf & Sports Club has been open long enough for the trees to mature, and the wonderful flowers make this course a joy to play.

A fairly easy start to your round with a wide open fairway to aim at but beware the deep greenside bunker.  The 3rd is a dogleg right with water all along one side with the elevated and heavily contoured green protected by five bunkers.  The 5th is another scenic dogleg with water along the right but if you play too conservatively you could end up in the cluster of fairway bunkers at the apex of the dogleg.  An uphill approach to a wide but narrow 2-tier green with bunkers in front and behind.  Challenging par 4 to finish and you need to avoid the large fairway bunkers protecting the right side and then it’s a mid-iron to a very large green which offer a birdie opportunity if you can find the right level.

Another easy start to the back nine with a long par 4 dogleg and opportunity to score if you can avoid the three greenside bunkers.  This is followed by the longest par 3 on the course often played into the prevailing wind to a green protected by three menacing bunkers.  On the 12th you need a good tee shot to carry the fairway bunkers along the right and you approach also needs to be accurate to avoid the water right of the green. The 13th is a long par 5 and providing you can keep on the fairway you have a chance of reaching the green which is circled by 7 bunkers. The 17th is our favourite hole with a narrow landing area off the tee with water and bunkers along the right and the green is also well protected with water left and OB right.

Some fairways are a little worn and could do with some work, and it can be difficult to find, but the cheap green fees that make this course so popular with the locals are more than enough to compensate for such minor gripes.

Windy course

Reviewed by ; on
Course with wide and flat fairway, but windy as it is near seashore. We very appreciate for the help from the receptionist who offered a ride to BTS for returning to Bangkok City as no grab to come at the evening time even the golf course location is near Airport. Advance booking of transportation is suggested. And, taking BTS for returning to Bangkok City is highly recommended to avoid traffic jam at the evening time this is always a mess in Bangkok.

Good and fun course with minor upgrades needed

Reviewed by ; on
Was very pleased with the conditions of the course and caddies were really helpful. Was a little disappointed we could not share carts, but the real let down was we not informed that we cannot share carts until we were already about to tee off so there was a rush to run back to the club house to buy tickets for the rest of our group.

Good, Affordable Golf

Reviewed by ; on
It has all the things you expect from a golf course. Course itself is well maintained and greens play fast. Caddies and staff don't really speak much English but doesn't stop them from being helpful.

Good course, horrible service - to avoid

Reviewed by ; on
The course is quite nice, but the service is horrible. Rude staff at the pro shop, very limited english at the club house / restaurant. Caddie with phone ringing while putting and answering the phone quite loudly! And to top this, when asking to call me a taxi, they told me there was none available. But with a 100 baht surcharge, they would find me one... I would definitely avoid this place, plenty of other options in Bangkok.

I would love to go back again

Reviewed by ; on
Quite an easy courses with wide open fairways with the occasional uneven lie but you still need to take care and to plot your way carefully around the course. Greens were in great condition - a little slow but fine to putt on. Outstanding Thai food tn the restaurant - as good as anything I have had in Bangkok
