Santiburi Samui Golf Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6240 m / 6824 y | Type Parkland | Architect Edward Thiele Pirapon Namatra

Santiburi Samui Golf Club is the only 18-hole golf course on the island of Koh Samui which meanders its way through the jungle and hillsides above the beautiful beaches.  It’s a very tough course – particularly the back nine and you will need to be on top of your game and also enjoy a slice of luck to score well.   Its one of the courses that made it onto our list of Best Golf Courses in Thailand.

This was the  first 18 hole golf course to be built on  the idyllic  island of Samui and Santiburi Samui Country Club is still the only championship golf course open for play a on this lush, tropical island. Set amidst the coconut covered hills and waterfalls of northern Samui this amazing golf course offers panoramic views of the white-sand beaches and coral-ringed nearby islands and it is as pictureque as it is challenging.

The undulating and narrow fairways follow the natural contours of the hills and valleys and as a result you will encounter numerous elevation changes that emphasis accuracy rather than distance – on many of the holes the slope can ensure your ball rolls even further than it carried. A great example of this is the exceptional 17th which is a par-5 which you can reach in two thanks to being downhill all the way; although choosing the correct club for your approach, whether it's your second or third shot, is challenging.

If you can avoid the water hazards that come into play on 13 of the holes, you will find the perfectly manicured greens to be in excellent shape thanks to the very fast Tifeagle grass. Many of the greens are multi-tiered and many of them are reminiscent of (and as tough to tame) as those at Augusta, so it's probably a good idea to seek your caddy's advice. The huge elevation change between the 17th tee and 18th green leads to some spectacular shots and you will need the compulsory golf cart to negotiate the slope.

After changing in the comfortable locker rooms, it is worth lingering a bit longer for a meal in the restaurant. It's not because the food is particularly wonderful (it is very good though), but because from the terrace you can enjoy one of the most spectacular views in all of Thailand.

An enjoyable and challenging course on this beautiful island 🤩

As this is the only 18 hole course on Koh Samui, we just had to try it out. The scenery is magnificant! I noticed that My caddy was quite fresh, but my partner’s caddy was more experienced so our round was enjoyable 😀 very ondulated holes and fortunately we brought enough golf balls to last the round🏌️‍♀️🤩

Santiburi Samui Golf Club

A great round of golf at a magnificent golf course.

Reviewed by ; on
I teed off early and finished inside of 3 hours, would have been faster however I spent time admiring and photographing the views. The fairways and greens are in excellent condition. The course is hard in places and a challenge which makes it great. My caddy for the day, Paula, was very knowledgeable and great sense of humour. All in all one of the most enjoyable games I have played, ,

For vacations ok

Reviewed by ; on
Condition ok but a quite challenging course with very tough back 9 holes. Almost every hole on the course is either a blind one and or tight fairways with significant slope so take enough balls with you. Greens were ok. Driving range a bit poor. Caddies were very good and spoke proper English so helped us pretty much. Organisation by Golfsavers was great again and worked well. Taxi from Mae Nam to Santiburi is 10-15 minutes only but quite expensive as always on the island with THB 500 (Grab Advanced because otherwise nobody will ever pick you up).

This is the greatest course, I have ever played.

Top tended. it was a great experience for the eye, in case of every view I made. And the course with the ups and downs, and the partly narrow fairways made the course special and still challenging.
