Due to its long history, the course is lined with fully mature trees unlike many of the more recently built course which gives the course great character. The fairways are usually pretty hard and often interspersed with weeds and bald patches but this will give you plenty of run on the ball. The greens are very slow but true and at times tough to read. There are some great views from some of the more elevated tee boxes and a Thai Temple provides the backdrop to the par-3 14th.
As you approach the club you will pass by the very ornate railways station which was often used by the Royal family as they visited their summer palaces in Hua Hin.
Probably the best hole is the last on the front nine which is a par 4 which takes you downhill towards the clubhouse. You have to drive across a waste area and at the same time avoid two large bushes which block your way. If you can navigate these hazards you are faced with a relatively simple approach to the green.
If you can ignore the wear and tear then it’s very playable and certainly worth a round to soak up some of the history of this grand old lady.

Royal Hua Hin Golf Course
Not that bad, but probably one of the worst course in Hua Hin
Reviewed by Stephan Tessede; on 30 Dec 2018
Decent layout, handy location if you stay in Hua Hin itself, but definitely one of the worst courses I played in Thailand (where the standard is pretty high though). It is quite cheap to play compared to other Thai courses but still way too much for what they have to offer. Altogether it was roughly 100 Austrslian Dollars to play what you play for 35/40 Aud in Australia.
Unless like me, you book at the very last minute and can’t get a game on another course, or you’re short in time and want to play there because you stay nearby; try to play somewhere else. Having said that, I still enjoyed my round.
Haven't checked the yardage to be honest, but the course felt quite short. That said, the fairways are narrow and with leaves on the ground, finding a ball in the rough is a real challenge. A complete contrast to other courses in the area I played (Banyan, Black Mountain, Springfield) which have long, wide open fairways, so worth doing for that if nothing else. If staying in Hua Hin centre, much easier to get to/from as well. Condition of course is not as good as others I mention but still good.
My first time here and as others have commented it is a little frayed at the edges but this should not stop you playing the first golf course in Thailand. We enjoyed our round which was not that expensive. The caddies were fine and the food and drink in the restaurant acceptable. They have a driving range beside the 18th fairway and I thought that this was a decent layout and well worth the outing.
I had not played this course before and the reason I wanted to try it is because of its long history and its easy access from the centre of Hua Hin. Compared to other courses it is not that well maintained but it’s not so expensive either. They have very cheap twilight rates if you tee off after 3pm.
Back in the 1980’s and early ‘90s, many Thai golf courses were built as part of residential property developments with developers hoping that by adding a golf course to the master plans it would help to sell the houses. It worked at first but after the first Asian crisis things stalled and following the market crash of ’97, golf courses owners had to rethink their plans and try to make the golf course pay its way. Around the same time many of the most famous golf course designers such as Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Robert Trent Jones Jr. were looking to ply their trade in Asia and some of their names appear on this list of the best golf courses in Thailand.
Pattaya’s best kept secret has to be its golf courses. Each golf course offers a different kind of challenge and many come with water features and excellent off course facilities, such as a restaurant, swimming pool and spa. Read about our pick of the best golf courses in Pattaya
