Crystal Bay Golf Club is a very popular and relatively easy golf course about 30 minutes outside Pattaya in gently rolling terrain with plenty of opportunity for good scoring.  Generally in good condition but can get very crowded at weekends so best played midweek.  The palm trees which line many of the fairways give it a distinctly Hawaiian flavour.

Providing the wind is not blowing then you should expect to score well as the course plays quite short although you will need to negotiate the ever-present water hazards and well placed bunkers if you want to shoot your handicap.

This Pattaya golf club is a pretty classic 27-hole layout of three nines which are all pretty similar with a mixture of classic parkland holes and others which are more links-style.  Plenty of water bordering some of the fairways and some which block your approach to the green plus the usual sprinkling of bunkers to make sure you don’t stray offline.

If you are playing from the back tees then you will find the par 3s quite long – especially the 5th which is over 200 yards from the blue tees and if you can score well on these holes then it should set you up well for the rest of your round.  You will encounter two island greens as you go round- the 3rd is a par 4 and the 8th is a par 3 which pays 165 yards from the back tees.

The course is usually in good condition but they do struggle with the greens during extreme weather conditions but although they might not be as pristine as some other courses they do usually run true.

The clubhouse is a bit tired but should not detract from what should be an enjoyable day’s golf in lovely surroundings.

Crystal Bay Golf Club - Course Reviews

"Course in good condition but clubhouse needs a makeover"

Reviewed by Peter; on 15 Mar 2016
This is a good layout and the course itself is in reasonable condition but everything else is in need of a makeover. Good value for money.

"Enjoyable golf round – good course"

Reviewed by Kuvita; on 22 Feb 2016
This course is fun to play – not only for single handicapper but also for average golfers. Fairways are pretty generous but most holes require careful course planning in order to get in the right position for your approach. When we played the greens were pretty slow compared to other courses in the area. Overall not too difficult and ideal for a relaxing round of golf. Caddies were fine – pleasant and helpful. Clubhouse is very old and restaurant was pretty bad as well.

"Excellent value and good golfing"

Reviewed by Scot; on 09 Feb 2016
A club that is slowly recovering from a difficult period and things are improving. No complaints about the course which is in good condition and he caddies are very helpful. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the management which seems very poor. We turned up on time for our booked tee time and found several groups waiting to tee off in front of us – we asked if we could start on the 10th but were told that everyone had to start form the 1st tee. As a result the front nine was very slow and we were waiting all the way round and we were not looking forward to the back nine. The caddies suggested we replay the front nine which by that time was completely clear. We played our second nine at normal pace and managed to complete 18 holes before dark. By the time we got back the locker room staff were sleeping which just about sums up the service you can expect at this club.

“Nice course but nothing special”

Reviewed by Mark; on 03 Nov 2015
Quite a nice golf course not far from Pattaya. Slightly spoilt by the Bermuda grass that has invaded much of the fairway which require some getting used to and lead to some frustrating mishits.
