Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6204 m / 6785 y | Type Parkland | Architect Artanan Yomchinda

Located just off Highway 4, leading south towards Hua-Hin and Cha-Am, is the Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club.  Designed by Artanan Yomchinda and opened in 1988, Royal Ratchaburi is regarded as one of the most spectacular golf courses in the Kachanaburi region and perhaps this is the reason why, it is considered to be one of the more popular golf courses among the local people.  Royal Ratchaburi is a par-72, 18-hole golf course, plays at 6785 yards and is about 1-hour drive from Kachanaburi town and 90 minutes dive from Hua-Hin.

The hilly terrain at Royal Ratchaburi, is what makes for the rolling hills and sloping greens.  There are also excellent views to be had of the Burmese mountains and these elements combine to make Royal Ratchaburi pleasing on the eye.

Considering the remote setting of the golf course, the greens are kept in very good condition throughout the year.  The fairways are quite undulating and the course provides a challenge, for players of all abilities.  The front nine provides the best opportunity for low scoring, as the fairways tend to be wider than those on the back nine.  The par-3 holes are short but do not be fooled in to thinking this makes them an easy birdie target.  There are deep canyons between the tee boxes and greens and this can be somewhat unnerving and lead to wayward shots.

Trees, bunkers and water are all in play during a round at the Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club but the real test here, are the greens.  Featuring slopes and burrows, 100% focus is requiring when reading and executing putts, otherwise dropped shots will become a problem. 

The off course facilities at the Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club, include a club house, restaurant and practice facilities, with a driving range, chipping green and putting green.  The facilities are modest at best but have everything anyone could want, to enjoy a good round of golf.  However, as the locals will tell you, people do not visit this course for the facilities, they come because of the quality of the golf course itself and the surrounding countryside.

A word of warning though, beware of the monkeys.  Wild monkeys roam near a number of the holes at this course, including the first, so if a ball is not where you would expect it to be, there could be a special reason why.

 

In summary, Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club is considered a hidden gem by those who have played there and it’s definitely a golf course worth playing.

Royal Ratchaburi Golf Club

Beautiful layout in wonderful natural settings

Reviewed by ; on
The course winds its way through the natural woodland and is very picturesque - the greens were true but quite slow and we really enjoyed our round here.

    AdditionalDescription:  {  html:  'The  hilly  terrain  at  Royal  Ratchaburi,  is  what  makes  for  the  rolling  hills  and  sloping  greens.   There  are  also  excellent  views  to  be  had  of  the  Burmese  mountains  and  these  elements  combine  to  make  Royal  Ratchaburi  pleasing  on  the  eye.

\nConsidering  the  remote  setting  of  the  golf  course,  the  greens  are  kept  in  very  good  condition  throughout  the  year.   The  fairways  are  quite  undulating  and  the  course  provides  a  challenge,  for  players  of  all  abilities.   The  front  nine  provides  the  best  opportunity  for  low  scoring,  as  the  fairways  tend  to  be  wider  than  those  on  the  back  nine.   The  par-3  holes  are  short  but  do  not  be  fooled  in  to  thinking  this  makes  them  an  easy  birdie  target.   There  are  deep  canyons  between  the  tee  boxes  and  greens  and  this  can  be  somewhat  unnerving  and  lead  to  wayward  shots.

\nTrees,  bunkers  and  water  are  all  in  play  during  a  round  at  the  Royal  Ratchaburi  Golf  Club  but  the  real  test  here,  are  the  greens.   Featuring  slopes  and  burrows,  100%  focus  is  requiring  when  reading  and  executing  putts,  otherwise  dropped  shots  will  become  a  problem. 

\nThe  off  course  facilities  at  the  Royal  Ratchaburi  Golf  Club,  include  a  club  house,  restaurant  and  practice  facilities,  with  a  driving  range,  chipping  green  and  putting  green.   The  facilities  are  modest  at  best  but  have  everything  anyone  could  want,  to  enjoy  a  good  round  of  golf.   However,  as  the  locals  will  tell  you,  people  do  not  visit  this  course  for  the  facilities,  they  come  because  of  the  quality  of  the  golf  course  itself  and  the  surrounding  countryside.

\nA  word  of  warning  though,  beware  of  the  monkeys.   Wild  monkeys  roam  near  a  number  of  the  holes  at  this  course,  including  the  first,  so  if  a  ball  is  not  where  you  would  expect  it  to  be,  there  could  be  a  special  reason  why.

\n

 

\nIn  summary,  Royal  Ratchaburi  Golf  Club  is  considered  a  hidden  gem  by  those  who  have  played  there  and  it’s  definitely  a  golf  course  worth  playing.
