Gold Canyon Golf Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6702 m / 7329 y | Type Parkland | Architect Seni Thirawat

Gold Canyon Golf Club in Chiang Mai is an unusual and enjoyable golf course where trees in the fairway and in front of the tee pose some unusual problems.  A challenging golf course which is a bit further outside the city but the wonderful views from all parts of the courses more than make up for the travelling time from the city.

An hour or so outside Chiang Mai in a tranquil, rural setting of orchards, canyons and woodland lies Lamphun's newest golf course, Gold Canyon. This is an unusual course that sits in contrast to most courses in Chiang Mai: it's rather open, with not much in the way of water or sand to inconvenience you. Instead, it's challenges lie in its length (at over 7,200 yards it's quite a trek) and the trees that are often unconventionally placed in the middle of fairways or on occasion right in front of the tee box.

While some may consider this a design flaw that is only likely to become exacerbated as these trees mature, other will delight in the need to play some unconventional shots off the tee. Should you take an 8 iron and go over, trust in your ability to draw the ball around the trees, or simply blast it into the branches and hope for the best? Overall, the front nine is fairly straightforward, although a pair of par-4s bordering a lake, the 3rd and the 5th, involve tough approaches over water to peninsula greens. The back nine is better and more difficult, with tighter fairways and the aforementioned trees causing most of the problems. Water comes into play memorably on a couple of holes, notably the double dog-leg par-5 13th where you must drive over water to a fairway that zig-zags past a second lake that will punish sliced second shots. The short par-3 17th features water short and left, and when the pin is placed on the back left of the large green you really have to flirt with danger. The greens are in generally good condition, with enough undulations to keep the danger of the dreaded three putt ever present, although the greens on the back nine are occasionally sanded which is disappointing.

In addition to being a long course, the walks between the tees are often substantial and hilly, so you'll certainly be getting a good workout if you walk it. The clubhouse is pretty basic but with such reasonably green fees you aren't likely to complain as the staff provide an excellent service. If you're in the area and fancy something a little bit different, a round at Gold Canyon Golf Course could be just the ticket.

An  hour  or  so  outside  Chiang  Mai  in  a  tranquil,  rural  setting  of  orchards,  canyons  and  woodland  lies  Lamphun\'s  newest  golf  course,  Gold  Canyon.  This  is  an  unusual  course  that  sits  in  contrast  to  most  courses  in  Chiang  Mai:  it\'s  rather  open,  with  not  much  in  the  way  of  water  or  sand  to  inconvenience  you.  Instead,  it\'s  challenges  lie  in  its  length  (at  over  7,200  yards  it\'s  quite  a  trek)  and  the  trees  that  are  often  unconventionally  placed  in  the  middle  of  fairways  or  on  occasion  right  in  front  of  the  tee  box.While  some  may  consider  this  a  design  flaw  that  is  only  likely  to  become  exacerbated  as  these  trees  mature,  other  will  delight  in  the  need  to  play  some  unconventional  shots  off  the  tee.  Should  you  take  an  8  iron  and  go  over,  trust  in  your  ability  to  draw  the  ball  around  the  trees,  or  simply  blast  it  into  the  branches  and  hope  for  the  best?  Overall,  the  front  nine  is  fairly  straightforward,  although  a  pair  of  par-4s  bordering  a  lake,  the  3rd  and  the  5th,  involve  tough  approaches  over  water  to  peninsula  greens.  The  back  nine  is  better  and  more  difficult,  with  tighter  fairways  and  the  aforementioned  trees  causing  most  of  the  problems.  Water  comes  into  play  memorably  on  a  couple  of  holes,  notably  the  double  dog-leg  par-5  13th  where  you  must  drive  over  water  to  a  fairway  that  zig-zags  past  a  second  lake  that  will  punish  sliced  second  shots.  The  short  par-3  17th  features  water  short  and  left,  and  when  the  pin  is  placed  on  the  back  left  of  the  large  green  you  really  have  to  flirt  with  danger.  The  greens  are  in  generally  good  condition,  with  enough  undulations  to  keep  the  danger  of  the  dreaded  three  putt  ever  present,  although  the  greens  on  the  back  nine  are  occasionally  sanded  which  is  disappointing.In  addition  to  being  a  long  course,  the  walks  between  the  tees  are  often  substantial  and  hilly,  so  you\'ll  certainly  be  getting  a  good  workout  if  you  walk  it.  The  clubhouse  is  pretty  basic  but  with  such  reasonably  green  fees  you  aren\'t  likely  to  complain  as  the  staff  provide  an  excellent  service.  If  you\'re  in  the  area  and  fancy  something  a  little  bit  different,  a  round  at  Gold  Canyon  Golf  Course  could  be  just  the  ticket.
